Is the NRA Republican?

Print page

What is the National Rifle Association?

This lobbying organization was founded 1871.  The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis.” Today the organization is strongly supported by most Republican conservatives and the American gun market.  Since they advocate for the marketing and sale of guns in America they have money to support their cause.  Records show that they spend the money supporting Republican politicians who will pass laws that protect the gun market and a liberal interpretation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.

However, the NRA has also contributed 37% of its congressional campaign donations to Democrats who represent rural hunting areas such as West Virginia.

    I fell Republicans led by President Trump are saying that to the Latins people to go back to their countries and make America great again Does he think Latin Americans are unsafe? He prefers to fear things and people and take support from the NRA who benefits from the gun market. Are Latin american immigrants bringing guns into the USA? Are they also looking for safety?

    The goal of the NRA is to spread gun safety. They have been teaching the right way to use a gun since they were founded. During WW2 they donated 7,000 guns to the British and gave ammunition to those protecting war plants. The NRA focuses on gun training, education and marksmanship. They also hold events for organizations like Boy Scouts of America. They have over 125,000 certified instructors that help train over 1 million gun owners a year. People with the ability to conceal carry in the United States are statistically the most law abiding citizens. The NRA lobbies to protect the second amendment.
