    President Obama's push against guns unsurprisingly has incurred some unintended side effects. The National Rifle Association recently released its FEC filing, showing $1.1 million raised for its political action committee in January. The donations are being used to wage "the fight of the century," or so they call it, to combat the administration's stricter gun control regulations. The NRA Political Victory Fund earned $14.4 million total in 2011 and 2012, including $1.8 million this past August alone—right around the time of the Aurora and Wisconsin Sikh temple shootings.
