Hold Republicans accountable for weakening gun safety laws
Hold MAGA Republicans accountable

Time is of the essence

People are busy and have short attention spans. There are so many shooting incidents. Republicans offer their "Thoughts & Prayers" after every shooting incident and hope your attention is distracted so they are not held accountable for their actions in weakening gun safety laws. They're counting on making it hard to find the Republican rep(s) responsible. And least of all they don't want you to know how much they are getting from the gun lobby.

That's why it's important to help people understand the reasons behind the increase in mass shootings in their state, while the tragedy is still in the news. That's what this map is designed for. You can get details on the shooting. Find your State House and Senate Rep, as well as your Senator - along with details on how to contact them with a few clicks - on your phone or laptop. And how to register to vote and check your Voter ID for NC while the tragedy is still top of mind.

Republicans block all gun safety reforms to get political donations

MAGA Republicans pander to their gun lobby donors. We all pay the price.

North Carolina sheriffs will no longer vet gun owners who apply for pistol permits after lawmakers overrode the governor's veto of legislation repealing the requirement. The new-law also allows guns in churches connected to private schools and implements a firearm safe storage awareness initiative.

The override vote, held in the state House Wednesday, was the first test of Republicans' new "effective" supermajority. And it's the first time the party has overridden Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper since 2018. Republicans' win is a first-time flex of a newfound power voters bestowed on them in last year's election, when the party won a supermajority in the Senate and one seat short of a supermajority in the House.

Their success in overriding Cooper is also a sign that Republicans will likely be able to override a number of future vetoes this year on abortion restrictions, parents' rights in education and election law changes. The legislation became law just two days after a gunman killed six people, including three 9-year-olds, in a Nashville school, which Democrats have underscored in recent days. - Axios

TakeAway: Hold Republicans responsible for pandering to their gun lobby donors and blocking gun safety legislation. Vote for President Biden and Democrats.
