An investigation by Mother Jones reveals that Robert J. Dowlut--the National Rifle Association's general counsel--was convicted of murder and later released from prison due to bad police work. Dowlut went on to become a key architect of the gun lobby's effort to transform the legal interpretation of the Second Amendment. Dowlut has been an influential under-the-radar activist: he has written or co-written more than 25 amicus briefs on behalf of the NRA in state and federal cases.
