The National Rifle Association has launched a media program, NRANews, to circumvent a new federal law limiting political advertisements by third-party groups. While its activity at the national level may be constrained by the new law, the NRA likely will remain active at the state level -- where it has given well over $3 million to state-level candidates and party committees since 1998.
