Claire McCaskill: The Good News Is that the Groups Against the NRA Are Growing

‘The ground did begin to shift around these horrific tragedies that all of us are so, you know, just sickened by’

EXCERPT:

McCASKILL: "Because the NRA has always taken the position, 'We control our members. And they do nothing, they do nothing that we do not want them to do.' This is about Wayne LaPierre and the leadership at the NRA, and they’ve got their whole separate set of mess problems within the NRA. But there is some good news here. The groups against the NRA are growing. And at this moment in our country’s history, I think we’ll look back and see that the ground did begin to shift around these horrific tragedies that all of us are so, you know, just sickened by, that we are the country — we are no longer the country of the beacon on the hill and the shining light to those who want freedom and a better life and opportunity. We are now the number one home of mass slaughters in the world. And that’s not a moniker that any American is comfortable with."
