Sen. Blumenthal: Republicans Will Act on Guns if They Face Threat of Political Losses

‘I think Republicans will act if they are faced with the prospect of mass losses in these elections’

EXCERPT:

BLUMENTHAL: "I think Republicans will act if they are faced with the prospect of mass losses in these elections. In answer to your question, what can be done? In a word, elections. Advocates of gun violence prevention like myself and other groups and organizations around the country, and they are springing up and growing in number and power, they need to make this issue front and center, a priority in these upcoming elections. And here’s some glimmers of hope, Chris. First of all, in the last election where states had gun violence prevention measures on their ballots, three out of four succeeded in referendum. And many candidates with this issue succeeded in elections last time around."
