The NRA’s multi-year campaign to wave their wallets in Washington and block gun violence prevention policies has been almost unbeatable—until now.
Earlier I posted a video of Rachel Maddow who had a similar “until now” message. She also informed us of Wayne LaPierre’s role as the rodeo clown who diverts our attention from those who manufacture and profit (and then donate that money) from the products that are used in the massacres and gun violence that are becoming all too prevalent: “Wayne LaPierre & NRA exist to make you think of anything other than gunmakers when you feel outraged by gun violence.”
Please watch the Maddow video, because it’s a perfect companion to the one above in which this message to Congress couldn’t be clearer:
“I’m a gun owner and a proud defender of the Second Amendment. For years, I’ve watched Congress take money from the NRA and then oppose any kind of reform that helps keep us safe. Well, after the Newtown massacre and the NRA’s disgusting response, I’ve had enough.” [...]
“The NRA doesn’t speak for me, and they don’t speak for the vast majority of Americans, so stop taking their money.”
