By The Numbers: 11 Facts About the NRA
In the United States, we have a problem. Depending on who you talk to, maybe the problem is mental health or video games or…doors? But horrifying mass shootings only happen at this disturbing rate in the United States, despite other countries having mental health problems, violent video games, and even…gasp…fully functional doors.

Still, they are thought to hold disproportionate political sway…even after attempting to file bankruptcy in 2021.
Don’t just take our word for it, take these numbers.
