NPR investigator puts NRA in the crosshairs
The National Rifle Association, the NRA, is still a factor in American politics, but it has certainly had challenges in recent years.
A very public fight between the gun-advocacy organization's CEO, Wayne LaPierre, and former NRA President Oliver North was just one situation that aired NRA's dirty laundry in public. And that fight followed NRA's consistent call for more guns in America, even after events like the Sandy Hook School shooting.
NPR investigative reporter Tim Mak spent years interviewing sources and reviewing obscure documents for information about the group and its troubles.
The result is Misfire: Inside the Downfall of the NRA.
