“What we see on the other side is a powerful, well-funded special interest group, the NRA,” she continued. “And the NRA has one issue that they care about, and the NRA has never been willing over the course of the last seven or so years to come to the table and work with us to try to keep guns out of the hands of those who would be a threat to themselves or to others.” (VIDEO: NRA VP — ‘We Need To Face What’s Coming.

Finally, Jarrett called on the American to people to call for common sense gun reform.

“What we need to have is a voice just as strong, just as effective, just as powerful to drown out that of the NRA.”
