Democrat Senator Chris Murphy recently said on “PowerHouse Politics” podcast that the NRA is showing some cracks and this could bring them down.
Murphy said, “We will eventually beat Republicans who vote against the 80, 90 percent of their constituents that want common sense change like universal background checks.
“I do think it shows the first significant crack in the NRA’s political facade,” said Murphy. “They do not want a legislative fight on this issue because they think they will lose. Thus, they push the [Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives] to do it administratively.”
Last week the NRA asked released a statement requesting the ATF to “immediately review whether [bump stocks] comply with federal law.” The NRA also said that “devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.”
Murphy was originally the Congressman of the district where the horrible Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting took place.
“This has been the first time since I have been in Congress that the NRA has shown any willingness to budge on gun laws,” he said. “That is because the balance of political power is starting to shift.”
The NRA has come short of requesting any ban stating that no ban has ever worked.
Do you think the this will be the end of the NRA’s power? Or are they just being reasonable?
