People say this NRA thing is a stunt but I have also heard that they get less support when the Right is in power because people feel less threatened.

Couple this with the overall meh economy, especially when it comes to rural areas where more of their supporters are, it may be that they really just aren't bringing it in like they used to.

Maybe, but I can't help but be cynical here.

- The NRA knows this year's midterms are pivotal and would want extra money for campaigns regardless of the current financial state

- The NRA has a vested interest in trying to make it look like New York State's ruling that it cannot sell shooting-insurance to its members is crippling and ruinous to its existence even though that isn't really true

Haven't looked into it, but I bet it's one of two situations:

1. They're either putting a worst-case on a legal document of some kind, or

2. It's a "god is calling me home" televangelist style donation plea.

NRA says it'll spend at least $1 million on pro-Kavanaugh ads | Campaign Trail - Ad Age

Quote:
The National Rifle Association says it'll spend at least $1 million on TV ads urging the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in states represented by four vulnerable Democratic senators and a Republican considered a key vote on the nomination.

The advertisements promoting President Donald Trump's nominee will run on cable and local broadcast stations as well as on digital platforms in Alabama, Alaska, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia. It adds to the flood of money from outside groups on both sides of the confirmation fight that will take place in the Senate in the fall.
