Americans woke up on Monday morning to learn of yet another horrific act of gun violence in the United States—this time a mass shooting in Las Vegas that left at least 58 people dead and more than 500 injured. But it seems unlikely that the politicians in a position to actually change our gun laws will actually do something about it, because they never do.

So, in lieu of any substantive gun control, what do America’s senators and congresspeople have to offer? That tried and true chestnut of noncommittal national mourning: “Thoughts and prayers.” And just as in the past, those thoughts and prayers seem to have been paid for in part by the National Rifle Association, whose campaign donations and scare-mongering have effectively blocked any life-saving legislation which might prevent a person from getting their hands on a fully automatic machine gun they can then use to pump bullets into dozens of innocent people.

So who is sending their NRA-sponsored well wishes to the victims of the Las Vegas massacre today? Let’s take a look, with a little help from the campaign contribution database at opensecrets.org.

I count at least 81 names on the list, and it's still growing. As far as I can see they all look to be Republicans but there may be one or 2 Dems on the list. It's time to outlaw the NRA and get their evil PAC money out of politics.

1. They are all guilty of being accomplices.

And not only do they not care, they have zero intention of doing anything about it.

3. You can't outlaw the NRA

 

It would never get past the legislative branch, much less the executive and judiciary.
