The Pro-Gun Group Behind Campus Shooting Clubs

July 5, 2016

The National Shooting Sports Foundation, which promotes gun use and lobbies against gun restrictions, has given more than $1 million to campus groups at about 100 colleges to start or run shooting clubs, The Boston Globe reported. Yale University barred further support by the organization for its campus group, which had received $20,000, as part of a ban on funding by corporate lobbying groups. At a number of colleges, the article said, the small student groups that received the grants didn't last long -- clubs that received support at Colby and Middlebury Colleges and Tufts University are now defunct.
