Guns & money: How all members of Congress are affected by the NRA’s spending

Washington, D.C.-, February 26, 2018 | comments

As the list of mass killings in the United States grows, so does the flow of money to members of Congress from the National Rifle Association and gun-rights groups.

 

Between 1998 — a year before the mass shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. — and 2017, the National Rifle Association spent $203.2 million to prop up its candidates, defeat gun control advocates seeking office and on lobbying.

The effort has been successful.

Since 1994, when then-President Bill Clinton signed a crime bill into law that included a 10-year ban on the sale of assault weapons, Congress has not passed a single major piece of federal gun control legislation. Attempts renew the ban, which expired in 2004, have consistently failed.

As the spotlight is refocused on the gun debate in the aftermath of last week’s mass killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. — as it was after Columbine, Sandy Hook in Connecticut, Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla., Las Vegas and others — the NRA and other gun-rights groups remain steadfast in their insistence that any attempt at gun control is the first step toward repealing the Second Amendment and confiscation of guns in America.

The head of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, made clear Thursday in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Md., that preventing Democrats from controlling the U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and White House was the key to protecting the right to bear arms.

“If they seize power,” LaPierre said of Democrats, “our American freedoms could be lost and our country will be changed forever. The first to go will be the Second Amendment.”

The NRA’s clout — and money — could overshadow national efforts rekindled by students from Parkland, who have vowed to press for stricter gun laws as a way to end school shootings.

Wednesday, during a CNN-sponsored town hall, high school junior Cameron Kasky, a survivor of last week’s massacre in Parkland, asked U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., if he would no longer accept donations from the NRA. Rubio, whose support from the gun lobby since 2010 has totaled more than $3 million and ranks him sixth among sitting U.S. senators and congressman, would not commit.

A second-term senator who sought the Republican nomination for president in 2016, Rubio said the NRA was buying into his agenda, not buying his votes.

“The positions I hold on these issues of the Second Amendment, I’ve held since the day I entered office in the city of West Miami as an elected official,” Rubio said. “People buy into my agenda, and I do support the Second Amendment.”

Today, Republican lawmakers, by and large, oppose gun control measures; Democrats are somewhat split but lean more toward favoring measures to curb gun violence.

According to opensecrets.org, gun rights interests have given about $42 million to candidates, parties and outside spending groups since 1989, with 89 percent of the funds contributed to candidates and parties going to Republicans. The NRA provided about $23 million of those funds. In the 2016 presidential campaign, the NRA spent at least $30.3 million, according to opensecrets.org: $10.6 million in support of Trump and $19.7 million to oppose Hillary Clinton.

Money from gun control interests, on the other hand, overwhelmingly go to Democrats. But since 1989, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, contributions from the gun control lobby to candidates for federal offices has totaled just $4.3 million.

What follows is a list compiled by opensecrets.org of contributions from the NRA to the 531 sitting members of Congress (four seats are currently vacant). The list ranks members by lifetime contributions (since 1989) and includes direct support from the NRA, its NRA Political Action Committee and NRA employees; indirect support, including independent expenditures and electioneering communications supporting the candidate; and independent expenditures against the members’ political opponent. A negative value was assigned for NRA-directed spending against a member. Each member’s first year in Congress is noted in parentheses.
