1. The #NRA is to gun-fueled killiings in the US as #AIPAC is to big-weapons killings (& settler colonialism & Apartheid) in Palestine. This brief Tw essay will explore the finances of both orgs. 2. ProPublica has a great public portal for reviewing IRS's Form 990 forms for all 501c orgs. Both @AIPAC and @NRA are 501c-4 orgs, so can lobby. Both hv smaller affiliated 501c-3 (educational) orgs, too. projects.propublica.org/nonprofits/org…
