A bit more info from MSM - MSNBC - so we know it can't be true

most nra backed candidates 2012 LOST!

the nra gets most of its power by using fear- they get hundreds of their members to call congressmen to do what they want
and the congressmen do what they are told to do!


THIMK


what if OWS did this -
imagine every OWSer got 10 people to call their congressman -
to raise the cap gains tax
to create an FDR type jobs program
or ?

I completely agree. I worked on Capitol Hill for a congressman and constituent personal calls, letters etc. made a big difference to him. It matters folks!

Nonviolent protest at their office or events would seem fitting.

NRA can be beat. These numbers are not huge. This should be the list of who should be targeted for defeat.

Better we should go on record that the NRA list of bestrated pols will be our list of targeted pols for defeat.

Gotta find the NRA list.

I think they've been vulnerable for longer than people realize.

Agreed. I heard they have not tweeted in 3 days, and have shut down their face book page. We've seen a few nra senators call for action so there might be hope for progress.

I think it's up to the American people to raise their voices loud and clear.

Can't let the gun nutters wait it out. Without a doubt. People power is the only way.

The ban in automatics in 1994 didnt really leave that many less dead, the massive prison complex that was errected did.

That being said, the removal of that ban in 2000 hasnt led to more deaths in the country.

If guns were never invented, I think that would have been a good thing. That being said, they are.

This problem is much deeper than automatic weapons.
