Celebrities began a steady attack on the NRA following the February 14 Parkland school shooting. In fact, within hours of the Parkland attack, Chelsea Handler accused NRA-back Republicans of having blood on their hands.
Student activists hammered the NRA as well, and their attacks were joined by establishment media outlets like CNN.
As celebrities and activists attacked the NRA, the American people donated to the organization. The NRA ended the month of March with a 15-year record high for donations: nearly $2.5 million for March alone.
