Colleges around the country are forming shooting sports clubs with grants from gun rights lobbying groups, drawing fire from left-wing critics.

Shotgun, rifle, and pistol shooting teams have received over $1 million in funding from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) over the last five years, prompting Second Amendment opponents to question the acceptability of universities accepting donations from the organization, The Boston Globe reports.

The NSSF calls itself a trade association representing firearms manufacturers and sportsmen dedicated to promoting, protecting, and preserving hunting and shooting sports. This includes spending money to lobby the government and mobilize voters to defend the Second Amendment.
