A major reason we fight for gun safety is to decrease the power of the NRA to push their members to vote Republican. NRA power helped Trump get elected along with Republican candidates throughout the country. Now, with NRA problems making the news almost daily, their influence will be diminished. This is a cause for optimism, not only for gun sense issues, but for all concerns Democrats believe in.
In recent weeks, the NRA has seen everything from a failed coup attempt to the departure of its longtime political architect to embarrassing tales of self-dealing by top leaders. The turmoil is fueling fears that the organization will be profoundly diminished heading into the election, leaving the Republican Party with a gaping hole in its political machinery.
