In the wake of the Orlando shootings that killed 49 nightclub patrons and the gunman, The Washington Post totaled up the amount of contributions the NRA has made to sitting members of the U.S. Congress. The total was $2,996,519 — $80,600 of which went to five Louisiana congressmen. Those include Sen. David Vitter ($35,250), Rep. Steve Scalise ($18,900), Rep. Charles Boustany ($17,450), Rep. John Fleming ($8,000) and Rep. Ralph Abraham ($1,000). All five men have been rated "A" or "A+" by the NRA Political Victory Fund.
