If you want to change the national debate on gun control, if you want to save innocent lives, there’s a simple change of perspective that you can do that will help to caused that to happen pretty quick: make having an “A” rating from the NRA a badge of shame for a politician.
The reason why this is powerful is because it doesn’t cost any money. You just vow to yourself that something the whores in Congress believe is so cool is, in fact, pretty horrible. It’s the only way to combat the huge amount of dark money flowing into Congress from the NRA and their ilk.
You have to take a stand. You have to formulate some principles that you won’t waver from, no matter what. You won’t vote for someone with an A rating from the NRA. You’ll do what you can to support the efforts of the Parkland children. Tell all your friends that an NRA A rating is the worst thing a politician can have.
Get angry and don’t stop being angry until effective, common sense gun control is enacted. It’s the only way we can win this fight. It’s a battle that will take a long time and only end once we can claim total victory and lives are finally saved preemptively.
