Thoughts and prayers: The NRA is bleeding money

“The National Rifle Association (NRA) has lost tens of millions of dollars in membership dues since the 2016 election and is more than $30 million in debt, according to an audit obtained by OpenSecrets.
The gun advocacy group previously alleged financial hardship in a lawsuit filed earlier this year, citing “serious difficulties obtaining corporate insurance” after Lockton dropped the NRA’s gun owner insurance.
The group is also facing a serious decline in revenue from its members, per the “new third-party audit of the group’s finances” acquired by OpenSecrets, which shows membership dues dropped by more than $25 million in 2017. After reporting $27.8 million in assets in 2015, the NRA is now $31.8 million in debt.”

  1. With Butina in lockup, it appears that the Russian oligarch money donations have dried up.

  2. join the nra and boycott the young turks and cancel your cable and bankrupt cnn!!!!

  3. You're all assholes,you should call the Democrats the Stalin party,young turks are real assholes way to the left,you make up your news as you go, NRA membership has spiked by 400 000 new members!!!

  4. Hmmmmm about the same as Russian money they laundered in 2016.

  5. The elephant in the room:. 1/3 of Americans have been in jail, and ARE at risk of losing their guns.

  6. Wow, a clothed woman on TYT. Thank you Michaela.

  7. Maybe Putin will bail them out again.

  8. So what, NEA (the national teachers' union) us losing money like crazy, too–because of unfunded pension liabilities. Read "dropout nation, NEA loses money." Does TYT still deny the pension crisis?

  9. Well, you can't launder dark money when Bob Mueller and his team are taking a close look at your books. Gotta pretend that "membership" is dropping.

  10. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

  11. Aw, poor NRA. I want to help! Thoughts and prayers, assholes.

  12. haha the parkland school kids did it!

  13. I think its as simple that with a Republican, President, House & Senate, they think their guns are safe.

  14. TYT is doing far worse then the NRA at the moment.

  15. Members know about the manufacturers. We just don't want to pay the increased membership fees. There are other associations to join. BTW, how about the 60+ million babies the libs have murdered legally? Abortion is an industry.
    You might think people are buying into your libspew, YT, but we're not. Should've learned that when you fell on your collective face predicting the last election. Just watch how Americans treat your Fabian authoritarianism. Means slow, creeping– very apropos in describing YT, btw. Liberal shoe-kissing creeps. I'm Stravo Lukos, the old Greek, & I damn well approve of this message.

  16. Remember to send them thoughts and prayers

  17. I have 2 guns for hunting and bear protection. I want reform, and I know the NRA doesn't

  18. I predict another cash infusion from Russia right before the 2020 election.

  19. o gosh it couldnt be because they endorse school massacres

  20. It's probably more that Obama is out of office and gun owners don't feel like the government is coming for their guns

  21. the gun takes away life…that is it's only purpose…death …Witness 1985

  22. Once the russian money was exposed and disappeared we see that this farce of an organization was being artificially propped up. Hope they fade away and are forgotten completely.

  23. The NRA: Now with Russian Agents!

  24. Uhh.. Thoughts and prayers for the NRA?

  25. Cink, you own a gun so you are a hypocrite.

  26. I'm a gun owner & X military. I'm disappointed in the NRA because they fight to keep silencers legal. That is about as radical as it gets. I can not with any moral compass claim the NRA is reasonable while they believe people should be allowed to own a silencer. A silencer has no purpose in situations of self defense. However, it does serve an effective purpose if your intentions are to silently murder someone without wittiness's. They actually claim it's to protect your ears. (use hearing protection)

  27. Locked but not loaded? Oh, wait… $30 million? Isn't that what the Russians gave them? Did they lose it in the books?

  28. They could fire that horrible witch, Dana and save a few bucks.

  29. I'm sending them my thoughts and prayers.

  30. Possibly the understanding that no one needs the NRA when that their rights are not threatened from the democrats.
    It might be because gun owners know that the NRA is just another form of registration as of gaining identity that gun owners don't actually need to have given away to a data base.. as via their constitution.. that the NRA might not be the militia as they try to make out they are, because that they ask for fee's as if that membership grants people any special privilege that it never does as from the freedom of the right not to need to pay for it.. as if that it's another form of license to pay for.. as to pay for it.. as to pay for the right.. is not a right.
    The right to organise as of a set of people supporting the right to own guns is mainly why people join, as to be seen as those that support the right to do so via constitutional law that the democrats seem to be mainly against.

    Their not under the shadow of the heavy hand of democrat party any more.. so no need to form affiliated groups under the NRA as to then pay for licensing for them as well to be affiliated as members… saving the average person their cash from the stand over merchants.. and of the democrats wanting to take away the right to own guns.

  31. My thoughts and prayers to the association of murderers.

  32. Real quick – Who is a former member of the NRA and why did you leave?

  33. This isn't about money the government wants to thin the herd duh

    how could you not have caught on by now

  34. That's what they get for letting a republican nobody is scared of in office

    I know they are fighting to stop 3D printed guns to try to boost profits and that just amuses me

  35. Where would we be without the "pedophile patriots of freedom"
