Rattle those collection plates

March was a great month for the National Rifle Association of the US – its ‘Political Victory Fund’ raised $2.4 million, $1.5 million more than it raised in March 2017; it is the biggest monthly sum since June 2003.

Most donations were under $200.

The fundraiser was the first full month following the 14 February mass killing by guns of 17 students at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Florida.
