The NRA certainly seems to have Congress by the balls!

Jerry: That cartoon pretty well sums up lobbying tactics in general, whether it's the NRA, Wall Street, Oil tycoons, etc. Like one of Nixon's Watergate henchmen said, "grab 'em by the balls and their hearts and minds will follow."

AYUP, that's them alright got congress critters by the short and curlies. I wish there was something, anything could be done but when you have gun shop owners talking about it will be great for business when there is a mass shooting, as I have seen the past couple days, I am afraid we have to wait longer.

Jess: I don't know if anything can be done or not. I keep hoping our "leaders" will start being embarrassed at all the ridicule from being the global version of the slow kid in the back of the classroom; but these people don't seem capable of shame or embarrassment.

I always cite the NRA, CEO's and Billionaires when someone starts screaming about having to "kowtow" on Minority Rights. That usually shuts them up!

Erik: Republicans aren't aware of people (unless it's a corporate person) or minorities. The majority of GOP bribes come from corporations and lobbying groups, and that's all they care about.
