Humanity lost...
1 day ago - Via Reshared Post - View - The National Memo : Barely more than a week after 49 people lost their lives in the worst mass shooting in American history...
Barely more than a week after 49 people lost their lives in the worst mass shooting in American history, Congress has once again voted against gun control. The GOP-controlled Senate rejected four measures that would’ve made background-checks mandatory and prevented names on the terror list watch list from buying guns. Similar gun-control measures were also rejected after the Sandy Hook Elementary School and San Bernardino shootings.
Senator Chris Murphy, who kick-started the vote with a 15-hour filibuster last week, and who sponsored two of the measures, said he was not surprised by the outcome, “I’m going to be turning my attention to the November election. I’m going to take some of my energy and help make sure that people who cast the wrong vote don’t come back to the Senate,” he told Politico.
Public outcry quickly followed the Senate’s decision, with many expressing the common belief that the National Riffle Association’s money is behind politicians’ inability to effectively act on gun violence.
“Sadly, our efforts are blocked by the Republican Congress, who take their marching orders from the National Rifle Association.” Said Democratic Senator Harry Reid in a floor speech.
As per the Center for Responsive Politics:
Gun rights interests have given more than $37 million to candidates, parties and outside spending groups since 1989, with 88 percent of the funds contributed to candidates and parties going to Republicans. And in the 2012 and 2014 election cycles, they let loose another $48 million (at least) in outside spending.
The NRA has provided the lion’s share of the funds, having contributed $22.3 million since 1989. During the 2014 election cycle, it further opened its coffers to make $27 million in outside expenditures.
GOP senators who voted against the “No Fly, No Buy” proposal said that they were just trying to protect the gun rights of people who mistakenly end up in the terror list. Instead, they introduced two measures: one that would have placed just a 72-hour hold on gun sales to people on the terrorist watch list, and another which would have expanded the legal definitions that prevent people with mental health issues form buying guns.
Democrats rejected those, saying they would have made no difference in the Orlando tragedy.
The Senate’s rejection of stricter gun laws happened as the nation grows increasingly tired of it failing to address gun violence.
According to the latest CNN/ORC poll, 92 percent of respondents said they wanted to expand background checks, and 85 percent said they supported a ban for people on federal watch lists from buying guns. Ninety percent of Republicans questioned favored preventing people on the terror list from buying guns, compared to 85 percent of questioned Democrats.
So with support for gun control at an all time high, even amongst Republicans, who are the senators that voted against the restrictions, and why?
The voting occurred mostly along partisan lines, with 53 of 54 Republicans voting against the measures.
53 senators have received high ratings fro the NRA, 33 received poor scores, and 11 are in the middle.
But it was not only Republicans rejecting the measures — 4 Democrats also voted against them. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Jon Tester of Montana voted against expanding background checks and Joe Donnelly from Indiana rejected all measures. These senators are three of few Democrats to have taken NRA money — Heitkamp has received $8,000 from gun groups throughout her career, Tester has received $2,500, and Donnelly has received $19,900.
All three senators will seek reelection in heavily republican states in 2018.
Only one Republican, Sen. Mark Kirk voted in favor of both Democratic bills. Kirk is the only GOP Senator that has received anything lower than an A- rating from the NRA. Coincidentally, he has also not received money from gun groups. Kirk represents Illinois, and Chicago is one of the most gun-violent cities in the nation, with more than 1,780 people shot this year. He’s facing reelection in November.
Money from gun rights groups can be traced to the campaigns of all 53 Republican senators who voted against the measure. Over the course of these senators’ careers, the NRA has given a staggering $36,290,699.
One GOP senator, Kelly Ayotte from New Hapmshire, voted for Sen. Diane Feinstein’s bill, but against Chris Murphy’s. Ayotte’s approval ratings fell when she voted against expanding background checks after the 2010 Newtown shooting and is in a tight battle for reelection against Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan. She is now working with Sen. Susan Collins on yet another attempt at compromise.
“To get to that solution, we have to move this debate forward,” said Ayotte said on the Senate floor after voting. She has taken in $29,295 in contributions from gun groups.
Collins, on her part, has received $19,800 from gun rights groups throughout her career.
Here are the other Republican senators who voted against the measures, and the amounts of money they have received from gun rights groups throughout their careers. Note that these are only direct contributions: the gun lobby spends millions of dollars in “outside spending,” or advertising and other efforts which cannot be legally coordinated directly with campaign committees.
