We’re winning

Obvious statement is obvious:

In every House and Senate election nationwide since 1990, the gun industry and its backers have outspent gun-control advocates by wide margins, according to an Arizona Republic analysis of campaign-finance data compiled by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. In 2010, 66 percent of the gun-rights donations in House races and 88 percent in Senate campaigns went to Republicans.

Because we actually have grassroots and real people. And we put our money where out mouth is. Our opponents prefer to hold their breath until they turn blue.

    “Gun-control groups say they haven’t given up. They tout legal victories in courts around the nation as a sign of how they are affecting public policy.”

    Legal victories in courts? The Bradyites remind me of Hitler in the bunker pushing around imaginary SS armored divisions and organizing counterattacks to save Berlin as all of Germany was dead, on the run, or burning.

  2. SPQR Says:

    But this: “gun industry and its backers” is a lie. The gun industry itself donates very little and the NRA ILA and related advocacy/lobbying groups are not “backers” of the gun industry, but of gun owners.

    This is the usual VPC/Brady lie. That the gun “industry” is who they oppose rather than hundreds of millions of gun owners and enthusiasts.

    But clearly they’re cheating. I haven’t seen any of them pass out from anoxia.

    There are more people who believe in individual liberty than not, so they’re surprised or upset that more money went to the cause? They give me a Slurpee headache.
