The NRA and Lobbying

The NRA has gotten a lot of negative feedback from the advertisement above, but it is part of a normal legislative strategy which you might want to highlight if you want to discuss legislative report cards and advertising.  You might even raise the question is the ad designed to increase membership or to convince legislators to vote against Obama's proposals (since we don't know when that is going to happen).  Also, here is a great set of graphics from the WashPost detailing members of Congress' NRA legislative report cards and their corresponding donations.  For more information on their PAC donations go to the NRA Open Secrets page
