Leading the country…?

On May 17th, North Carolina will hold its state wide elections.

One candidate, running for the US Senate, features media ads showing him with a shot gun; another ad with a pistol shoved in his belt near the front buckle. Clearly an NRA puppet. The majority of NC congress people are pro-NRA receive campaign contributions from the NRA ranging from $1000 to $9000+.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA – APRIL 3: Sacramento Police crime scene investigators place evidence markers on 10th street at the scene of a mass shooting in Sacramento, Calif., on Sunday, April 3, 2022. Six people are dead and 12 others are injured after a shooting broke out early Sunday morning. Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said there were no suspects in custody yet. The shooting happened in the vicinity of the 1000 block of K Street in downtown Sacramento. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)

Over the last few days media sources report shootings and killings in neighborhoods, malls, and public gatherings. An individual or family today can be in danger anywhere.

I am a gun owner. I support gun ownership to a point, with the exception of AR15 type automatic rifles and similar. However you just have to ask yourself what message this candidate sends to adults and young people.

Is this the leadership the country needs in US Congress?

The NRA’s contributions to senators are not insignificant:
