The organization is the main opposition to the gun control movement in the United States. It has used its huge membership and funds to influence elections in the past decades, supporting candidates against gun control. Public opinion generally believes that the organization is responsible for the rampant violence in the United States. In response, Caroline meadows, President of NRA, said Zhan’s accusations were “groundless and premeditated” attacks on the NRA and the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and were “political speculators trying to seize power.”.
