STOP THE NRA BY NOT ALLOWING THEM TO ELECT OUR POLITICIANS / by marilyn salenger

Because I cannot write anymore grief stricken words about the tragedy of the lives lost in school shootings, mass shootings and the shootings that take place every day, I am providing you with a list of members of Congress who have taken money from the National Rifle Association. The names of every politician who accepts money from the NRA is a list that cannot be circulated enough. It has been compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, a non-profit, non-partisan research group that tracks money in U.S. politics. 

The National Rifle Association and its affiliates spent approximately $50 million dollars in political advertisements in the 2016 election supporting those who towed their line, and going after Democrats who propose stricter gun laws. $50 million dollars.

Donald Trump was the biggest winner of the NRA's 2016 election advertising, buying Trump's support with $11.4 million dollars. It's not by chance that he didn't call for stricter gun control laws after the horrific Parkland, Florida school shooting.

The National Rife Association has done their best to buy our politicians and prevent stricter gun control regulation. If the only thing that these people understand is money, put your money elsewhere.
