This isn’t about guns, gun owners, or the 2nd amendment.
This is about the NRA.
Following the passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968, the NRA became much more politically active, establishing a Political Action Committee aimed at supporting gun-rights politicians over those advocating for gun control.
In 1977, it significantly grew and began to align with conservative members of Congress to push for more relaxed gun regulations, harnessing the grassroots power of its members across the country. The NRA also contributes tens of thousands of dollars to Congressional candidates and members of both parties, though the lion's share goes to the GOP. The top 81 members of Congress with the most career NRA contributions are all Republicans. The NRA is especially active during presidential campaigns, contributing millions to candidates that support expanded gun rights and targeting those who threaten to control or regulate guns. In the 2016 election, the group threw its support behind President Donald Trump.
The National Rifle Association represents less than a fifth of all American gun owners, yet it remains one of the most powerful gun-rights lobbies in the United States. The group spent more money lobbying for expanded gun rights through the first two quarters of 2017 as it did in all of 2016. Last year's lobbying total surpassed $5.1 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics' database. The NRA spends millions influencing Congress and the White House to advance its agenda. And its monetary prowess is still growing. While the cigarette, pharmaceutical, and insurance industries spend far more, the NRA spends nearly 10 times as much as the biggest gun control lobbying group in the country.
Many gun control advocates blame the NRA's aggressive lobbying tactics and dramatic rhetoric for driving Americans' opinions on the issue apart. While there are somegun-related issues on which a majority of Americans agree, the NRA's influence remains a contentious and dominant aspect of the ongoing gun debate. And that has had a profound effect on how Americans view the NRA. Its influence has divided gun owners and non-gun owners. There are also significant differences in how NRA members and non-NRA members view the same gun control policy proposals — even among Republican gun owners.
Lastly, this is about “Thoughts and Prayers.”
These flaccid, feckless, meaningless three words vomited onto the American consciousness after each shooting, is the NRA’s fault too. Meant to console those simple-minded people of faith and infuriate the activist, action-minded Left, these three shouldn’t be 'Thoughts and Prayers', it should be
