Charity watchdog monitoring National Rifle Association after it breached rules by engaging in ‘recreational shooting’

The Charity Commission issued the National Rifle Association (NRA) with formal regulatory advice in May 2019 after finding the charity acted outside its charitable objects by promoting civilian recreational shooting competitions and other activities. Whilst the NRA has made progress in addressing this, it remains subject to close scrutiny by the regulator due to the seriousness of this issue.

Charities must advance their charitable purposes for the public benefit, and the Commission considers that there is only the most tenuous, if any, connection between civilian recreational rifle and pistol shooting and the NRA’s charitable purpose of promoting the efficiency of the Armed Forces for the defence of the realm.
