Liberals and their media allies have spent weeks demonizing the NRA. They have repeatedly blamed the National Rifle Association for the Parkland shooting even though they had absolutely nothing to do with it.
All of this has backfired. Donations to the NRA are at record highs.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
NRA PAC Donations More Than Tripled in February
Donations to the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) political action committee more than tripled in February in comparison to its contributions from January, filings show.
The donations increased as liberal activists, politicians, and celebrities have called for more gun control measures and singled out the NRA and Republican politicians who have received support from the group following the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 dead.
Speakers at the “March for Our Lives” rally this past Saturday in Washington, D.C., continued the push by calling for an AR-15 ban and restrictions on “high capacity magazines.”
Supporters of the NRA appear to have responded by infusing more money into the organization’s political action committee. The NRA’s Political Victory Fund, the group’s PAC, experienced a nearly five-fold increase in itemized donations immediately following the attack, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
That’s probably not the outcome the left was hoping for.
