This has to hurt:
The article from US News & World Report is an eye opener…for the opposition:
In May 2013, six months after the Newtown school shooting that sparked a national conversation on guns – and a month after the Senate failed to pass a major gun bill – Pew found that 25 percent of people who support gun rights had contributed money to a second amendment group, while just 6 percent of people who support gun control had donated on the issue.
And let’s face it. We are against not their astroturfing, but also the Joyce Foundation/’s deep pockets and The Media that gives them ton of free advertising so it is not just a question of cash flow but hard votes:
Those who prioritize gun rights were also more likely not to vote for a candidate who has different gun views – 41 percent of gun rights supporters said they wouldn’t – while fewer gun control supporters, or 31 percent, said a lawmaker’s policy would change the way they voted.
Michael Bane has said more than a couple of times that we will always vote Second Amendment while the opposition will vote for the theme du jour. A true test for any politician is how they respect the Constitution as they cannot say they are for x–y–z amendments but not for w amendment without committing political suicide for us.
So keep contributing plus phone, fax and email your reps and Senators. And vote 2A always.
