Why? if you tell them they can't take money from supporters then you have to Take away all moneies from all politicians who take money from everybody. Can't do it to one group and not the others.

I voted "Other" - 

?1. While accepting contributions from the NRA would certainly be one of the factors I consider when voting for a candidate, my main criteria would be, "Does this candidate support overall the same views I do?" 
2. We drastically need major campaign finance reform so that politicians can't be bought by any individual or group special interests.

Sure you can. It's not a matter of law, it's a matter of conscience.

So if a Candidate takes money from the tobacco industry that's ok even though it's proven to cause cancer, or the
Alcohol Industry that's Kills more people than guns do that's ok. What's good for one should be for the other

Is it the individuals who get the money or the party?

The NRA represents the people in the NRA. Voters. People supporting their interpretation of the constitution, yes. As long as the court agrees with that interpretation it is what it is. Don't blame the politicians, blame the Supreme Court.
