Thoughts and prayers are with the NRA. But they don't need them. Their Russian membership dues will keep them going.
Even before the fight with New York, the NRA was struggling financially, reporting a $45 million budget deficit in 2016 tax documents.
The NRA is also at the center of an FBI investigation into an accused Russian spy's efforts to influence American politics.
And yet the NRA appears to remain at the peak of its powers, able to mobilize its millions of members to support state and federal political candidates who share its gun-rights agenda. It spent heavily on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, and now has an avowed supporter in the White House.
