The Gun Fight [electronic resource]: The Power and Politics of the NRA

The National Rifle Association is arguably the most powerful-and least understood-grassroots organization in America. In this program, ABC News anchor Peter Jennings reports on where the NRA derives its power and how it wields influence through lobbying and financing campaigns. Mr. Jennings starts by interviewing NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre and then talks to friends of the association: members, gun makers, and elected officials. The report reveals that despite school shootings, lawsuits, and the Million Mom March on Washington, NRA membership is at an all-time high. It also looks at how lobbyists and staunch allies can quickly become enemies if they disagree even once with NRA policy.
