Cory started the day by rolling out a bold plan to tackle gun violence. Here’s how Vox put it:
So no one’s surprised that the NRA, Dana Loesch, and other voices in the gun industry are already coming after him.
The gun lobby will do (and spend) whatever it takes to protect the status quo where they continue to make money for corporate gun manufacturers and nothing gets done to end the cycle of violence and corruption. And the reality is that strategy has worked.
But that ends here and now. As Cory put it, “We are going to bring a fight like the NRA has never seen.”
Because that’s what it’ll take. We know that the NRA’s positions are dangerous and unpopular — it’s exactly why you can bet they’re ready to spend millions to stop Cory’s proposal.
