Wondering if NRA Does Anything Useful?

The gun control blog The Trace:
In just the last month alone, one in every 20 political TV ads in Pennsylvania, a swing state Trump won by one percentage point, was funded by the NRA, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis. In all, the NRA aired over 10,000 pro-Trump or anti-Clinton ads between May and October.
The group nearly doubled its spending from the 2012 election, in which it spent about $12.5 million total in support of Mitt Romney. “In the face of threats against their constitutional freedoms, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters rallied to elect a pro-gun president,” NRA lobbyist Chris Cox said in a terrifying statement. Gun stocks dipped after the election because analysts believe Trump will protect their right to buy firearms, according to MarketWatch.

Well, it sounds as if the NRA was just instrumental in un-electing that notorious Gun Control Advocate Hillary ("Australian Solution? Worth looking at!") Clinton.

Other than that .....
