NRA Funding Thing Obviously Funded by NRA

In a stunning turn of events, Fox 31's Eli Stokols reveals today that the National Rifle Association is funding a lawsuit that dovetails with all the priorities of the National Rifle Association. The lawsuit's lead attorney, whose arguments mirror the policy positions of the National Rifle Association, has apparently received money from the National Rifle Association:

Dave Kopel, the Independence Institute’s resident Second Amendment expert, is the lead attorney on the lawsuit.

And FOX31 Denver has found that Kopel has received $1.39 million in grant money from the N.R.A. Civil Rights Defense Fund between 2004 and 2011. The group continues to fund Kopel, although tax information from 2012 and 2013 isn’t yet available.

“They’re the oldest civil rights organization in the United States,” Kopel told FOX31 Denver this week. “I’m a well-known Second Amendment expert and researcher. It would make sense that they would support what I do.”

The report by Fox also discovered that a group of 55 modestly compensated public servants did not provide the $1.39 million paid by the National Rifle Association to the lawyer whose positions mirror those of the National Rifle Association. However, the lawyer who received $1.39 million from the National Rifle Association insists that 55 modestly compensated public servants are sincerely and deeply concerned about the priorities of the National Rifle Association.

At press time, the National Rifle Association had not yet commented officially on the National Rifle Association's sponsorship of a lawyer whose positions mirror the policy statements of the National Rifle Association who is filing a lawsuit primarily consisting of contentions found in the policy positions of the National Rifle Association, but the National Rifle Association is expected to, at any moment, release a public statement clarifying that the National Rifle Association agrees with the principled views of 55 modestly compensated public servants.

    PCG, when you aren't here as much you lose 13 minutes of timeliness 😉 But, I'm sure you can get it back

    Could any of this money be illegal gifts to the public officials?
