I Learned This Morning That There Are A Number Of Anti-Gun Groups...

in the U.S. There is power in numbers. They all need to come together as one group if they want to take on the NRA and gun reform. Right now they are fragmented and though well meaning - they are weak in getting the message out.

If they all came together and spoke as one formidable voice - they would be more effective. There is strength in numbers. I'd venture to say that in coming together - they would have more members than the NRA.

I hope the students take up the mission to organize all these anti-gun groups under one umbrella. This would be the greatest contribution these students could make to the cause.

On edit: The other major contribution these students can make is to GOTV with the message to make the Nov 2018 Midterms historic - with the largest voter turnout in the history of U.S. elections. That would certainly send a message to the lawmakers.

1. My thinking exactly. Splinter groups have no real voice.

Here's just the top anti-gun groups who if they all came together under one umbrella, shared resources, spoke as one voice could have a powerful impact. Unfortunately, like many Democratic groups, they all have their own agendas and ideas to fulfill their goals.

2. They Do Have One Uniting Issue...

that of gun reform. That has to be the rallying point for an umbrella organization.

I have to believe that all these anti-gun groups are run by reasonable thinking people. They have to realize there is strength in numbers.

3. I posted before finishing the post. Got distracted. Have added a little more clarity.

Agree. But the devil's in the details.
