They helped fight a bunch of additions to the Assault Weapons Ban. They helped the people of Chicago and DC fight for their right to own handguns and in those decisions affirmed that the Second Amendment is indeed a right to self-defense, not just having guns for military service and sporting purposes. They helped fight the UN Arms Trade Treaty which is still a threat, and they brought more exposure to the Obama/Holder Fast and Furious gun smuggling. They're also working to get National Carry Reciprocity similar to driver's licenses. That's just off the top of my head.
