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+.
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:
The laws need to change!
