No you’re not. You’re with the NRA. https://t.co/pRlg0VNZtS

We can’t back down no matter what. The NRA has won in the past because we always move on with our daily lives and they don’t – they focus on their agenda.
Fuck The NRA https://t.co/emxIXfjwcy

This is yours, @NRA . This belongs to you now. https://t.co/f4XSuRqGhN

When he speaks at the NRA convention weeks ago but says he is with the victims of yet another school shooting.

Senator Ted Cruz is A-rated by the @NRA and voted against universal background checks after the shooting at Sandy Hook School. His prayers do not seem to be working.

The only difference between the @NRA and ISIS is that the @NRA has a better marketing division.

These shootings keep happening BECAUSE OF POLICY CHOICES WE HAVE MADE AS A COUNTRY, policies that make guns easy to get.
We must start making different choices. YOU can start that process by VOTING OUT @NRA rated members THIS NOVEMBER.

This is becoming intolerable and too terrifying. If I were a parent with children in school, I would be worried everytime they left in the morning. And yet all the President talks about his b.s. all day long. It’s always about him. But the NRA: November. “Santa Fe High School”

The United States of America is the only nation in the world with more guns than people.
It’s not even close.
We have 103 guns for every 100 people.
Most nations have 5 or fewer guns per 100 people.
It’s a predictable recipe for disaster and disaster strikes over & over.
