(National Sentinel)Â Guns, Right?Â The National Rifle Association had a record-breaking month of fundraising in March, hauling in nearly $2.5 million, the civil rights organization’s largest one-month total in 15 years.
From March 1 through March 31 the fund raised more than $2.4 million, an increase of roughly $1.5 million over the amount the fund took in during the same time last year.
TheÂ Miami HeraldÂ reportsÂ that the $2.4 million collected in March â€œis the most money raised by the NRAâ€™s political arm in one month since June 2003.â€
March 2018 donations were higher than previous record-setting periods for the Political Victory Fund.
For instance, in January and February 2013, immediately following the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack, the NRA raised $1.1 million and $1.5 million, respectively.
The $1.5 million mark was surpassed by nearly $1 million last month.
Donations during March 2018 eclipsed other high water marks for the Political Victory Fund. For example, January and February 2013â€“the two month immediately following the Sandy Hook Elementary School attackâ€“saw fundraising totals of $1.1 million and $1.5 million. The figure of $1.5 million was surpassed by nearly one million dollars last month.
“The $2.4 million consisted largely of donations totaling $200 or less, which means the number of donors was substantial,”Â Breitbart News reported.
