||The National Rifle Association has over the years drastically increased the funding to schools. According to the findings of an Associated Press analysis of their tax records, over 500 schools country wide have received more than $7.3 million from 2010 to 2016. This revelation comes amid heated national debate over gun control and violence in schools.
California is the largest beneficiary of the grants, receiving over $1million. Florida was a close second. While some states received dozens of grants, some states did not receive the NRA grants. Massachusetts, a state known for their strict gun laws, did not receive any grants.
