    would be unable to name even a single lobbyist for the defense industry, though there are 412 registered.

    LaPierre himself is one of 49 registered gun rights lobbyists -- and I doubt many people could name any of them, either, apart from LaPierre.

    By contrast, there are 11 registered lobbyists for gun control, spending about 1/20th as much as the gun rights advocates.
