Guns are everywhere.
You know, in your backyard.
You’re not even allowed to keep a gun in your home.
The National Rifle Association, a lobby for the National Rifle Assn., is not about to let its message get in the way of the NRA getting what it wants.
The group has spent more than $1 billion on ads and political advocacy to keep the focus on guns.
And it has been winning.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, NRA spending has surged in the wake of the shooting deaths of five police officers in Dallas.
But this isn’t a new battle.
For the last five years, the NRA has spent millions of dollars to try to convince voters that gun control is a bad idea.
Its ads and press releases are filled with numbers and statistics that paint a picture of a gun-owning society that is a more dangerous place than it actually is.
And while there’s little doubt that mass shootings are a problem in America, the numbers don’t support the NRA message.
For example, the New York Times reports that the total number of firearm-related deaths in America has decreased by about half since 2007.
That doesn’t mean we’re safer.
A recent study by the University of California, Berkeley found that gun ownership actually increased in the United States between 1980 and 2009, when the nation’s murder rate began to fall.
But it also found that the gun owners who bought the most guns also had the highest rates of gun suicides.
The research suggests that the NRA doesn’t have a clear answer to how to stop gun violence.
Instead, it has resorted to pushing a number of anti-gun policies.
For instance, in 2016, the organization’s gun lobby arm, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, launched an ad campaign that targeted a number in the media.
The ad featured celebrities and politicians saying that America’s gun culture was a national health crisis.
“If you own a gun, you’re a gun owner.
If you don’t own a car, you don.
If there’s a gun around, it’s a problem,” the narrator says.
The NRA has also spent millions to promote a number and anti-abortion messages.
In the past, the group has focused on the sanctity of human life and a ban on abortions.
But since 2014, the groups has also targeted Planned Parenthood.
This year, it tried to use the election as an opportunity to attack Planned Parenthood for its decision to fund abortion clinics.
“It’s a great story about how the anti-choice movement has taken over the pro-life movement and it has taken away the abortion clinics from Planned Parenthood,” said Shannon Watts, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List.
The ads focused on women in their 40s and 50s who live in areas where abortion clinics are located.
The videos also show Planned Parenthood workers trying to intimidate Planned Parenthood affiliates in states like Louisiana and Arkansas to stop providing abortions.
One video features a Planned Parenthood executive who tries to talk women into donating fetal tissue to researchers, which the organization says is legal under state law.
“What is it you do with these fetal pieces?” the woman asks the producer.
“They’re not part of our medical care,” the producer responds.
“But if you’re interested in having these, that’s fine.
They can donate it to scientists,” the woman says.
But the Planned Parenthood video also shows Planned Parenthood employees speaking with anti-choicers and talking about their support for abortion rights.
The organization’s ad campaign has also been criticized by women’s groups.
“The NRA’s attempt to portray Planned Parenthood as a source of fetal tissue harvesting is simply false,” said Jill Biden, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
“Planned Parenthood does not harvest fetal tissue.
Planned Parenthood does research to find ways to prevent unintended pregnancies and prevent unwanted pregnancies.
It is not harvesting fetal tissue for research purposes.”
So why does the NRA continue to spend so much money on anti-government messages?
“The reason that they’re spending so much on antigovernment messaging is because of the fact that they know they’re going to lose,” Watts said.
“So they have to do something to try and keep their numbers going.”
But the NRA is also spending a lot of money on social media.
Last year, the gun lobby spent more on ads than it did on its lobbying efforts, according to the Washington Post.
It has also used social media to try its hand at influencing people’s views.
It started using social media in 2016 as part of a nationwide campaign to make people more comfortable with gun ownership.
And during the 2016 presidential election, the pro–gun group used social networking to try pushing its message.
The anti-Clinton ads and social media campaign went hand-in-hand.
“This was an attempt to make the election about Hillary Clinton and her support for gun control,” Watts explained.
“I think that’s how they’ve managed to do it.”
But Watts said the gun control
