The Far From Level Playing Field

By George Devinny. September 17th, 2018

By all accounts the NRA has been labeled evil because it contributes to pro-gun causes. However, hypocisy yet again rears its ugly head as we hear of Everytown for Gun Safety planning to throw large sums towards anti-gun candidates. From Washington Post:

Everytown's strategy to change gun laws has focused on statehouses. The focus on individual races is an outgrowth of that, Feinblatt said, and resources are being used where the group thinks it can make the most difference.

In Georgia, the group is spending money on Democrat Stacey Abrams's gubernatorial race. Abrams has called for universal background checks for firearms sales and repealing a state law that allows permit holders to carry guns on college campuses.

The group is also working to elect Lucy McBath, who is running for a seat in Georgia's 6th Congressional District. McBath's 17-year-old son, Jordan Davis, was fatally shot in 2012 during a dispute about loud music as he was sitting in a car outside a gas station in Jacksonville, Fla. McBath became a gun control advocate after her son's death and has worked with Everytown. The group has given her $1.2 million.

So, it's OK for this type of organization to send huge funds in an anti-gun direction and yet the NRA has been, and is, accused of the sin of supporting the pro-gun lobby - that has to be seen as what it is - blatant hypocrisy. The guns issue has long been fought by big money and with mid-terms ahead it seems the stops are being pulled out - hot potato issues are predictably ''assault'' weapons as well as mag capacities and even carry laws. Be very aware of this attempt to "buy" more 'gun control'.
