The truth is that most of the people who threatened to filibuster the background check bill aren’t afraid of the NRA. They’re on its side. They don’t need to be intimidated or even persuaded.

Gun control fight just beginning
[I realize it is hard for the anti-gun people to comprehend but it’s the truth.
It’s not about the NRA making money from gun sales. It’s not about the NRA buying off politician. It’s not about the NRA threatening to oppose a politician that votes the wrong way. There is no Triangle of Death as they claim.
People actually believe that people have the inalienable right to keep and bear arms and that it must not be infringed. The Bill of Rights says this. The Supreme Court of the United States has confirmed this.
The facts actually support the claim that guns are used to save more innocent lives that they used to take innocent life.
These strongly held beliefs and facts are why there exist politicians on our side. This is why we are winning.
And, most importantly, this is why the anti-gun people are on the wrong side of history and will be swept aside as we push forward to reclaim our infringed rights.—Joe]
