How long are we going to let the NRA hold Congress hostage?
Any member of Congress who promotes or even votes for common sense gun control laws will be met at the next election by the NRA. The gun lobby will do its best to prevent such Congress members from being elected. At the same time, the NRA will contribute some of its blood money to the reelection campaign of candidates who vote against gun control measures.
What we need is anti-NRA lobby. A group that will use the NRA tactics against it. A group that will come to the defense of the Congress members who support reasonable gun control and attack those who vote against gun control.
We need to act now. We need to harness the grief and anger created by the latest outrage. We need to force the do-nothing Congress to act before more American school children are murdered.
