Is this the year the NRA's back is broken?

The gun lobby, represented by the NRA, has spent an all time record of more than $20 million on ads to support Trump and attack Clinton. Fivethirtyeight.com gives Clinton an 82% chance of winning.

Of the ten Senate races that might tilt the Senate to Dem control the NRA has contributed $42,600 to 6 of them. Of those six only two Republicans are ahead in the polls. The remaining four races are so far gone that the NRA has pulled all spending.

I can't find enough data to predict the House but I can assure you that gun control will NOT be a factor in GOP wins.

This could be the year that the myth of gun rights as a third rail is exploded once and for all.

RIP NRA.

2. That would be the perfect end to this nightmare of an election.

I'll gladly have suffered through the Trumplican's BS for a year and a half if we get a Clinton presidency and enough down ballot seats to say goodbye to the NRA.
