The documents, prepared for the NRA board of directors and obtained by the Associated Press, show that the powerful gun lobby ran cumulative operating deficits of $69 million from 1991 to 1993. An additional $3-million deficit is projected for 1994.

IN BLOOD-RED letters, the sign on the front window of the Dealers Outlet gun store in suburban Phoenix declared: "Urgent! Act Now! Stop the Gun Ban!" Inside, customers took time out from browsing through AK-47 assault rifles and a flock of other firearms to sign a petition--and to vent their wrath at a local "turncoat," U.S. Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.). "We are petitioning to protest the semiautomatic gun-control bills before Congress," read the text above a fast-growing list of names.
