Firearm prohibition lobby outspends its opponents in run-up to midterms

Midterms: Gun control groups outspend NRA and other gun rights rivals
The group spent more than $1 million in opposition of Representatives Jason Lewis (R-Minn.), John Culberson (R-Texas) and Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), hitting all three with television ads deploring their respective gun control voting records.

Between its political nonprofit and super PAC, Everytown for Gun Safety has spent more than $3.8 million to help Democratic candidates, but nearly all of it has gone toward Lucy McBath’s campaign for Georgia’s 6th District.

The Michael Bloomberg-backed group invested more than $3.5 million in supportive ads for McBath, who lost her son Jordan Davis to an act of gun violence in 2012. McBath was at one point the national spokesperson for Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense and has made gun safety one of her biggest issues.

The Democrats are spending a lot of money this cycle, thanks to Steyer and Bloomberg. It doesn't guarantee the Democratic candidates will win, it didn't put HRC in the WH in 2016. In tossup races anything is possible.

Well, I do not fear the NRA. Nor do I fear the anti-gun lobby here in GA. It will take at least a generation before anything but mild gun control measures (magazine capacity restrictions?) take root here.
The border between civilization and savagery is porous and patrolled by opportunists. Resist fascism. Vote like your democracy depends on it.
