    (11/27/18): “The nation’s leading gun-rights organization saw its income drop by $55 million last year, after a record-breaking 2016 in which the group and its political affiliates spent unprecedented sums to elect President Donald Trump. https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-nra-just-reported-losing-dollar55-million-in-income The National Rifle Association of America reported $98 million in contributions in 2017, down from nearly $125 million in 2016, according to new tax records obtained by The Daily Beast. Nearly one-fifth of its contributions last year came from a single anonymous donor, who chipped in nearly $19 million to the group.” https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-nra-just-reported-losing-dollar55-million-in-income “More noteworthy than its drop in contributions, though, was its decline in membership dues. The NRA took in more than $128 million in dues last year—a significant sum, but down considerably from the $163 million it took in the year prior.”

    *not to be confused with the company’s later ‘Thunder Burp’ and ‘Tommy Burst’ toys, which unlike the company’s ‘Burp-Gun’ didn’t use explosive percussion caps. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c2/9c/bc/c29cbcfb7ae6e09e1bb6b744f78d8344.jpg Roughly based on the U.S. M-3 submachine gun, generally referred to as a “Grease Gun” because of its resemblance to that automotive tool. https://medium.com/war-is-boring/the-grease-gun-was-for-killing-nazis-e90a87a57150
