I wonder if it would be enough to tip the scales if

These young kids who are part of #neveragain go out and vote en masse next cycle (many will be 18 soon ) against NRA funded candidates (mostly gop) .

How much a percentage of the voting base are they ? Can they make a big difference?

1. They are already making a difference

Thanks to them, their honest outrage and courage, many corporations are saying no to the NRA. We are turning a corner.

2. Oh yes I absolutely see that.

But ultimately it's at the ballot box that the deal will be sealed. If politicians get booted for being pro nra they won't be so eager to cower to the nra.

3. Agreed!

We need to take the NRA on as Democrats. We can't pretend they define real Americans anymore. They stand for and promote domestic terrorism. Being shot to death is now the third leading cause of death for children.

4. Younger voters are replacing older voters.

Those old white guys (Dotard voters) "clutching their bibles and guns" are being replaced each day by Gen X'ers, Millennials and younger - who just learned complacency can get you killed.
