Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly's organization Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS) raised $11 million for gun control efforts and to limit your rights, over the past four months.
ARS says the money was raised from 53,000 different donors. What hasn't been explained is whether the bulk of the money came from major donors like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other infamous anti-gun advocates.
To date, ARS has used some of the money to run ads against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), both of whom voted against gun control in the Senate on April 17. ARS also run “thank you ads” for Sens. John McCain (R-AZ), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Kay Hagan (D-NC), all of whom voted for gun control.
ARS has retained the bulk of the funds it has gathered to help counter the NRA when gun control comes up for another vote.
ARS membership is 336,000. NRA membership is 5,000,000. What have you done to raise money for the NRA?
