Taxpayer Funding for the NRA

Why are U.S. taxpayers forced by law to fund the NRA? See this little tidbit:
Title XVI of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Page 331) created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice & Firearms Safety (CPRPFS).
“The Corporation may obtain surplus property and supplies without cost, but may sell at fair market value surplus rifles, ammunition…to citizens of the United States over 18 years of age who are members of a gun club affiliated with the Corporation.” The NRA is such a corporation.
It’s a taxpayer giveaway. Why can’t the military sell the surplus weaponry themselves and return the profits to taxpayers?
