Countering N.R.A. My suggestion, what is yours?

So what do they do? They set up a phone tree. When a law is introduced that proposes to make us safer, they use the phone tree to tie up legislators' lines. The bombard lawmakers' offices with phone calls.

The legislators get scared and the bill is dropped.

How can we set up a similar response to feckless lawmakers?

1. Take the money out of politics.

 

Public funded elections for example. There are two candidates running against big money politics. If the NRA can no longer buy politicians, they're effectively neutered.

3. That's right

It does not many how many constituents call them, ONE CALL from a mega donor is all it takes to make them back down. If there were publicly funded elections their constituents might start mattering to them again.
