The National Rifle Association spent growing sums on overhead in 2018 even as it cut money for core activities such as gun training and political efforts, ending the year deeper in debt, new financial documents show.
The gun rights group’s 2018 financial report, which was obtained by The Washington Post, portrays the longtime political powerhouse as spending faster than its revenue rose.
The records show that the NRA froze its pension plan for employees at the end of last year, a move that saved it close to $13 million, and obtained a $28 million line of credit by borrowing against its Virginia headquarters.
Despite that, the nonprofit group, four affiliated charities and its political committee together ended the year $10.8 million in the red. In 2017, the six groups ended the year with a $1.1 million shortfall.#stopthenra #stopthenrafrombuyingcongress #stopnralobbyists #nraisterroristorganization #boycottthenra #endgunviolencenow #endschoolviolenceacrossamerica #nomoregunsinschools #endmassshootings #endmassshootingsinamerica
Sometimes I wonder, what goes on in there minds to think that more guns will solve the problem of gun violence -funje🇦🇴X🇭🇹
I am very thankful that nothing happened today at my work 💕
If you hadn’t heard there were threats of a mass shooting TODAY at #csun
where I massage students and faculty
Due to this the finals set for today were moved to online HOWEVER the campus was still open... and I still went in to work. I held my breath until noon (I had it in my head that if something was to happen it would happen 12p on 12/12)
And when noon passed and nothing happened to me or my student client on the table I breathed a sigh of relief.
We can’t let sick people control our lives and I wanted to help any student that needed me today... however I won’t lie it has been a very interesting few days.
I can’t believe this is the society I live in... #thishastostop #nomoregunviolence #nomoregunsinschools #ifnotnowwhen #guncontrol #nomoreshootings #changetheworld
