Well, heck, if the US press isn’t going to run this on their front pages, then I’ll do it on my blog. (And I’m not even American.)
Following the Las Vegas massacre of October 1, 2017, the New York Times ran the Opinion piece below entitled “Thoughts and Prayers and NRA Funding.”
Following the Parkland, Florida school shooting on February 14, 2018, FORTUNE magazine ran an article entitled “The Ten Politicians Who Have Benefited the Most from NRA Funding.”
In the 2016 election, the NRA spent $11,438,118 and $19,756,346 to oppose Hillary Clinton. That’s over $31 million spent on one presidential race.
Top 5 Senators That Benefited the Most From NRA Funding
John McCain (R, AZ) – $7.74 million
Richard Burr (R, NC) – $6.99 million
Roy Blunt (R, MO) – $4.55 million
Thom Tillis (R, NC) – $4.42 million
Cory Gardner (R, CO) – $3.88 million
And the list continues. Doesn’t this incense you? Make you mad as hell?
American inventors, Thomas Edison, the Wright brothers, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, to name just a few, have given the world the most avant-garde, visionary, clever and cutting-edge innovations ever. I cannot believe that when it comes to achievable ways to stop the epidemic of gun violence in your country, you’re short on ideas.
What prevents important anti-gun bills from passing? Greed. Self-interest. Piggishness. Unethicalness.
