The Hill: Gun Control Lobby Spends 'Tens of Millions; on Elections and Still Loses

Recommended Posts

Gun control groups are far more influential — and well funded — than they were in previous years, slowly catching up to pro-gun organizations that held a tight grip on Washington lawmakers for decades.

But despite spending tens of millions of dollars each election backing congressional candidates, they’ve made little headway in Congress.

At the same time, The Hill pointed out that the tactics deployed by the NRA “can get traction.” The outlet pointed to the NRA’s decision to run television ads “in the home states of [Sens. Angus King (I-ME), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Jon Tester (D-MT)] urging them to oppose Chipman.”

They noted that the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s efforts against the Chipman nomination were effectual as well.

Breitbart News reported that Biden withdrew Chipman’s nomination Thursday while subsequently blaming Republicans and promising to continue the pursuit of more gun control.
