Rep. Charlie Crist has received $9,900 in NRA support.
Charlie Crist has received $9,900 from the NRA! This is clearly bribery, and shows why he is not supporting protection against gun violence, but rather his bottom line!
Why is this important?
Gun violence is a problem in our country, and although it cannot be completely eliminated, steps can be taken that would save many lives in the future. The Las Vegas tragedy is another in a long line of tragic incidents.
Reinstituting the federal ban on assault weapons should be a first step. Even Ronald Reagan co-signed a letter urging the U.S. House of Representatives to support a ban on the manufacture of "assault weapons." Why won't Charlie Crist support such a law?
According to an article in the American Journal of Medicine, Americans are 10 times more likely to be killed by guns than people in other developed countries. Firearm death rates per 100,000 in the US are 10.2 compared with 1.8 in Norway, 2.8 in France (where most deaths were terrorism related), and 0.6 in Spain.
Just because we cannot prevent all gun violence, shouldn’t we try to prevent the 90% that is preventable with new legislation?
Charlie Crist has received at least $9,900 from the NRA. The majority of Americans support prevention of gun violence, but instead of common sense legislation, we suffer the tragedies of THE BEST DEMOCRACY THAT MONEY CAN BUY!
