Many Americans can buy a gun in less than an hour.
Gather March 24th at 9 a.m. at the Fairview Park City Hall. We will car pool to the Cleveland “March for Our Lives” at Public Square.
MSNBC – Ali Velchi and Stephanie Ruhle reported today on a “Daily Beast” article by Jackie Kucinich and Sam Stein about the prevalence of “no compromise gun lobbying groups” and their sphere of influence in Congress.
Ali Velchi provided names of four groups to further inform your discussion about gun lobbying groups. The National Association for Gun Rights has 4.5 Million members and spent $14 Million lobbying Congress. Visit: www.nationalgunrights.org. Secondly, Gun Owners of America has 1.5 Million members and spent $5 Million as a “no compromise gun lobby!” https://gunowners.org. Next, the Zelman Partisans at zelmanpartisans.com has different levels of membership for different budgets! Finally, the Second Amendment Foundation at https://www.saf.org says they’re not involved in politics or lobbying, but have assumed a central role in sponsoring law suits regarding gun rights.
When you have time, a visit to www.goodbyetogunstocks.com gives you an opportunity to see if your funds are supporting gun lobbying. Apparently, 35% of mutual funds are doing so!
Action Step You can Take: On March 24, 2018, the kids and families of “March for Our Lives” will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. The March will be in Washington, DC and in many local communities around the country…including Cleveland. On March 24, the collective voices of the “March for Our Lives” movement will be heard!
