You’ve read it a million times. 99.99% of all Americans support xyz gun laws! COMMON SENSE! Seems a cut-and-dry argument for us pro-gun monsters to be crushed. Except we have the “NRA Corporate Gun Lobby!”. You see, since there is so much money in the NRA they simply can’t pass laws. You know, the NRA buys off politicians, and then pays off voters to vote for those politicians who vote against their wishes because damn near everybody wants gun control!
Except Michael Bloomberg is flushing money into the political scene, and now this:
Americans for Responsible Solutions, the super PAC founded by former Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, announced Tuesday that it will invest millions of dollars in seven Senate races and four House races across the country, bolstering candidates — including two Republicans — who support stricter gun laws and are facing tough elections.
…The organization did not specify how much money it will put into each race but said that the funds would be used toward television advertisements, direct mail and digital communications. The group said it has raised $14.5 million in donations so far and is on track to meet its fundraising goal of $20 million by the end of the election cycle.
So if the anti-gunners are right, you can simply BUY elections, and if you have support of a overwhelming majority, that is further compounded.
All in, antis, show me your cards!
