By now, you know the NRA’s business model.
Its main product is the guns it sells, which are, to some degree, legal.
And, its main competitor is the private-label gun makers that manufacture the guns.
But the company is also heavily invested in guns.
That’s because, with the exception of the high-end rifles, guns are the most important thing the NRA makes.
To understand why, it helps to take a look at what makes the NRA such a powerful force.
For a company that has been in business for over 100 years, its history has been a roller coaster ride.
After its founding in 1919, the company has been transformed from a small manufacturer of inexpensive guns to a powerful, if sometimes controversial, lobbying and political powerhouse.
Its dominance of the industry has brought it immense wealth.
Now, it has set out to reclaim its reputation and, more importantly, its influence on how Americans think about guns.
The NRA’s rise from gun manufacturing to lobbying group in the 1950s and 1960s was a watershed event for the firearms industry.
The company had never been much of a force in Congress.
It was dominated by big gun companies, like Colt, Winchester, and Smith & Wesson, and by smaller manufacturers, like the Ruger, Springfield, and Remington.
By the mid-1960s, the NRA was in a position of strength, but the company also had to deal with the growing political clout of the National Rifle Association (NRA), which had a long history of organizing, campaigning, and influencing Congress.
In the 1950, the organization successfully lobbied against legislation that would have banned assault weapons.
NRA-backed bills also passed in Congress to restrict the sale of handguns, expand background checks for gun purchases, and limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds.
After the 1960s, NRA-supported bills helped to pass the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which banned the manufacture and sale of guns that could be used to kill and maim people.
In 1974, the law went into effect, and gun manufacturers were required to obtain federal licenses before making any new products.
This led to a rapid increase in gun sales and sales of ammunition, which the NRA lobbied for through lobbying, litigation, and lobbying of lawmakers.
The new law created a regulatory environment where new gun companies had a competitive advantage.
The rise of the gun industry coincided with the emergence of a brand new weapon, the assault rifle.
By 1980, assault rifles accounted for over 40% of all firearms sales, according to a report by the Gun Owners of America (GOA).
The gun industry was so powerful that gunmakers could simply buy a new firearm with a lot of money and set it up for sale.
In 1985, the ATF seized the company’s manufacturing facility and took away guns.
This resulted in an explosion of assault rifles in the US.
By 1990, more than 1,000 assault rifles had been made in the United States.
These guns were being sold to civilians in the U.S. and abroad.
Guns are used in a vast array of situations and are the primary weapon in a lot, if not all, of the shootings and murders that occur in the world today.
Guns and ammo are the fastest-growing segment of the U-shaped gun market.
By 2005, more Americans owned guns than cars, according the GSA.
Guns accounted for more than three-quarters of all the guns in the market.
Guns were also used in nearly every violent crime, and in a third of murders committed with a firearm.
The assault rifle and assault weapons are a huge part of why the gun business is in a slump.
A major reason is the availability of cheap, high-powered weapons.
The US military has spent the past decade upgrading its arsenal.
By 2015, the US had roughly 70,000 military-grade assault rifles, and the next-highest-ranking category was the .223-caliber machine gun, which fires ammunition from a high-capacity cartridge.
This ammunition has become so cheap that it has become the industry’s second-largest export, behind only guns.
In addition, there is an arms race between countries like China and Russia, which want to develop their own weapons systems.
It is a race that could eventually lead to a world where military arms are obsolete.
Guns also play a role in many mass shootings.
In 2014, for example, Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 students and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
A mass shooter with a rifle killed 58 people and injured hundreds more at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in June.
And in the Philippines, gunmen with assault rifles killed more than 60 people in an ambush at a hotel in the capital Manila in June, and police say that the killer was inspired by the Columbine High School shootings.
As of July 2016, there were more than 6,000 gun-related deaths in the country, and almost
