Nikolas Cruz, 19, killed 17 people and injured dozens more at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14. It was only the latest event in a long series of school shootings in the United States.

There have been repeated calls for some kind of legislation to more effectively regulate firearms, but they have ultimately been blocked by Congress.

Below is a list (in alphabetical order) of Idaho members of Congress who have received donations from the largest firearms advocacy organization, the National Rifle Association. The original list (updated Feb. 15, 2018) was compiled by The Washington Post and shows NRA donations for every state since 1998.

Sen. Mike Crapo—$29,300

Rep. Raul Labrador—$8,100

Sen. Jim Risch—$13,900

Rep. Mike Simpson—$43,750
