NRA Influence Swayed Gun Vote

NRA Influence Swayed Gun Vote | guns | Scoop.it

In the days leading up to last month’s crucial votes on the most significant gun control legislation to come before the Senate in nearly two decades, polls showed that about 90 percent of Americans supported background checks for all gun purchases. But when the clerk called the roll, the centerpiece amendment — requiring background checks for firearm sales at gun shows, through classified ads and on the Internet — got just 54 “yea’s,” six votes short of the 60 vote super-majority required.

 

Just four months after Adam Lanza killed 26 people at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and President Obama promised tougher gun laws, the vote proved to be the latest in a long-running string of victories for gun rights activists, the firearms industry and particularly the National Rifle Association, the nation’s pre-eminent gun lobby.

The power of the gun lobby is rooted in multiple factors, among them the pure passion and single-mindedness of many gun owners, the NRA’s demonstrated ability to motivate its most fervent members to swarm their elected representatives, and the lobby’s ability to get out the vote on election day. But there’s little doubt that money, the political power it represents, and the fear of that power and money, which the NRA deftly exploits, have a lot to do with the group’s ability to repeatedly control the national debate about guns. Whether that fear is justified is an intriguing question —but it clearly exists. That has, perhaps, never been clearer than it was last month on Capitol Hill.

As if you didn't know already, the NRA has bought their way into our governmental process. What you might not know is that since 2000 election cycle, the NRA and their sister pro-gun lobbies spent $81 million on House, Senate and Presidential races. 

 

Read this post to get the full nauseating picture of how the gun industry spends frivulously to buy politicians and stoke public fear/panic so they keep peddling their wares without any restrictions whatsoever while 30,000 Americans die from gunshot wounds per year.
