NRA gets spike in donations following Florida school shooting


The National Rifle Association (NRA) benefitted from a spike in donations following the deadly shooting last month at a Parkland, Fla., high school. 

Federal Election Commission filings showed the organization’s Political Victory Fund garnered slightly less than $248,000 in donations in January. In February, that figure more than tripled to $779,062.

The February totals show a sharp increase in the same month when the NRA faced intense criticism following the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 people dead.
