Donations to a PAC belonging to the National Rifle Association were up 200 percent in February, compared to the month before. This came during a month of increasing criticism of the NRA, following the mass killing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Within 10 days of the shooting, nearly a dozen companies had publicly severed ties with the NRA. However, this boycott was contrasted by a rise in both memberships and donations.

During the month of January, the NRA received nearly $248,000, but in February that number rose to $779,000.

The massacre took place Feb. 14. According to numbers from the Center for Responsive Politics, itemized contributions of $200 or more from the last two weeks in February were twice that of the first two weeks, and in the week after the shooting alone, the number of people contributing to the NRA rose by 500 percent.
