Gun Control Lies

Every time the media blows up over a mass shooting, the liberal articles come out of the woodworks. This predictable response includes references to the NRA as a "big lobby group." If you believe the articles, you'd be led to believe that the NRA is one of the largest lobbying groups in Washington. But we all know the liberal media lies.

So... is the NRA one of the largest lobbying groups?

Liberal outlet,  Huffington Post, says "no." The NRA is (correctly) not even mentioned among the top 10 largest lobbying firms. Liberal media torch bearer, CNN, agrees. Here is  their list of the top 10:

1. General Electric (GE): $134 million
2. AT&T: (T, Tech30) $91.2 million
3. Boeing Co (BA): $90.3 million
4. Northrop Grumman (NOC): $87.9 million
5. Comcast Corp (CMCSA): $86.4 million
6. Verizon Communications: (VZ, Tech30) $86.4 million
7. FedExCorp (FDX): $85.7 million
8. Exxon Mobil (XOM): $85 million
9. Lockheed Martin (LMT): $78.8 million
10. Pfizer (PFE): $77.8 million

By contrast, the NRA's  largest year on record was $3 million.

Don't buy the hype. The NRA is small potatoes compared to actual lobbying efforts.
