To the surprise of no one, what the GOP says about gun violence is very different from what they do about gun violence:
No matter how much they lie about it to the American people, Republicans' actions speak for themselves: they care more about guns than the lives of our children. While Democrats consistently push forward solutions to end gun violence in America, the GOP offers only their thoughts and prayers, and stands in our way. So, we must defeat them. Chip in today to help us kick these obstructionist Republicans out of office and get common-sense gun reform across the finish line.
Since Republicans love to offer their half-hearted, poorly planned solutions, it's time they answer some tough questions:
Why do you claim mental health is the issue, then vote against increased funding for mental health resources?
If you claim to advocate for gun owners, then why do you vote against background checks when a supermajority of gun owners support them?
If you don't trust teachers to instruct kids on US history and race in America, why do you feel comfortable arming them and making them act as law enforcement in their schools?
We could go on and on.
We've seen it over and over again for years: We cannot take Republicans for their word on anything, but ESPECIALLY on gun violence. And in order to finally change the policy that allows this violence to happen in America, we need to elect more Democrats like Eric who will stand up to the GOP and the gun lobby and vote for life-saving gun laws. Can you pitch in to help us elect more Democrats who will pass gun laws to protect our kids?
Thanks for all the support, team.
