Times are tough for the once-mighty National Rifle Association. The gun-rights organization has hemorrhaged money over the past years. Its president was forced to resign after a nasty and very-public spat with its longtime CEO. There are allegations that Russian interests laundered donations to the Trump campaign through the organization. And the New York Attorney-General has opened an investigation into its murky finances and extravagant spending on executive salaries, bennies and travel — much of which is underwritten by the rank-and-file due-paying membership — in an effort to determine if it can remain tax exempt.
