Winning with misfortunes ... who does such a thing?

Por mayli2017

The powerful mediator of the NRA in Florida, Marion Hammer, in a letter addressed to the members of the Association, exhorted them to identify the traitors who voted for control of the weapons, an attack on Republican state attorneys that prompted the approval of the law that increased the age to buy any weapon in Florida from 18 to 21 years, established a waiting period for the purchase of rifles and shotguns (three days), and prohibited the sale of devices that allow semiautomatic rifles to shoot with greater speed.

The document prepared by Hammer also states that none of the members of the NRA support the free arms control clauses added to the bill by Republicans, as they are responsible for the approval of the 'law of arms control'. According to Marion, they all lacked courage to fulfill the oath of office and the promise they made to the voters who voted for them. Now she does not deserve Naie's trust, they betrayed her.

While the streets after February 14 have been full of people for protests and marches calling for new laws and reforms that restrict the use of weapons in the United States, after the massacre committed in Parkland by the teenager Nikolas Cruz, the other part of the debate on gun control enjoyed an excellent month.According to documents submitted to the Federal Electoral Commission, since the massacre at the school, the National Rifle Association (NRA) Political Fund raised $ 2.4 million from March 1 to March 31, the first full month of collection for political purposes of the group.

The figure exceeds 1.5 million more than the amount raised by the NRA during the same period in 2017, when it raised $ 884,000 in donations, and $ 1.6 million more than the amount collected in February of this year.The aforementioned figure (2.4 million dollars) is the largest amount of money raised by the NRA's political support in just one month since June 2003 and exceeds the collections of $ 1.1 million and $ 1.5 million in January and February of 2013, Two months in a row after the shooting at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut

.Most of those donations, 1.9 million of the total of 2.4 million, to be exact, came from contributions of less than $ 200. The Association provides money to different political campaigns, but most of its expenses are in activities not concisely related to the campaign of a legislator where the group is not limited by state and federal regulations.Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, for example, received only 9,900 direct contributions from the NRA during his campaign to the federal Senate in 2016. However, the campaign benefited from $ 3.3 million spent by the NRA on issues such as political committees to help him. to defeat the Democratic representative Patrick Murphy.In districts like Florida, the NRA has made donations to four Republican lawmakers during the 2018 cycle, Mario Días-Balart figures as one of them.

Despite this, the four donations have been 2,750 or less, a minimum figure compared to the millions that a competitive legislative campaign costs.In the same way, the NRA has not donated to candidates at the state level in Florida for years. Instead, the political power of the group is in its thousands of members, who are generally a powerful electoral bloc in the Republican primaries.
