How powerful is the NRA politically?

So powerful that the latest campaign finance legislation seeking to change the law after Citizens United just carved out a specific exception to the law to avoid NRA opposition.

That's right - with a Democratic majority House and Senate and a former Joyce Foundation board member as President, they gave the NRA a pass on campaign finance reform to avoid that fight with the NRA.

Of course, the NRAs real power comes from its members; but this is a good example of how the day-in, day-out work of those members over the past 10 years has changed politics.
