Denver based think tank big recipient of NRA grants
DENVER — One of the recipients of the largest amount of charitable donations from the National Rifle Association is based in Denver. The conservative think tank known as the Independence Institute received $241,000 from the NRA's foundation in 2016. That almost single-handedly made Colorado the state that received the 4th-most funds from the NRA charity. That's the finding of an Associated Press analysis of public tax records.
