A Question To Ask Any Politician That Takes Money From The NRA....

Do you feel you have blood on your hands by accepting money from the NRA?

Then I guess - as someone responded to one of my other posts tonight - we need to ask people that vote for politicians that accept money from the NRA - Do you feel you have blood on your hands for voting for these politicians that accept money from the NRA?

7. The story from Reverb Press back in 10-17

<snip>In 2015, Scott Bixby from Mic.Com took a long, hard look at the 50 U.S. Senators — one Democrat and 49 Republicans — who voted against a bill late in April of that year that would have expanded background checks for guns bought at gun shows and through online vendors. He then poured over the data from the Center for Responsive Politics and came up with some interesting findings: Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) hadn’t received a dime in campaign funds from the NRA directly or indirectly through PACs and other groups. But the other 48 Senators had raked in a staggering $27,205,245 — over $27 million dollars — from the NRA over the course of their careers.<snip>

It's a fb link...best I can do

9. A Question To Ask Any Politician That Takes Money From The NRA....

Yes, any politician who accepts money from the NRA has blood on their hands. What really baffles me is that these politicians do not care about shootings in schools, the NRA calls the shots and the republican senators and governors cast a blind eye. It is all about money for these scavengers!

10. Part B of the question: Do you think keeping your job in Congress

takes priority over my child's life? The lives of all children in your district/state?
