This Election Season, Florida Moms Asked Domino To Explain His ‘A’ Rating from the NRA; the Gun Lobby Continues to Support Access to Guns by Suspected Terrorists, Convicted Felons, and Domestic Abusers; https://momsdemandaction.org/carl-domino-explain/
The Florida chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America claims gun safety victory today in the reelection of Congressman Patrick Murphy and defeat of NRA A-rated candidate Carl Domino.
This election season Moms Demand Action unveiled the “Explain Your A” social media campaign asking candidates to explain their ‘A’ rating from the NRA. This top grade from the gun lobby represents support for the rights of felons, domestic abusers and terror suspects to buy and own guns, among other dangerous policies and proved a liability for Florida candidate Carl Domino as well as Illinois candidates Darlene Senger and Larry Kaifesh.
“Voters in Florida deserved to know where the candidates stand on public safety and we presented Domino an opportunity to let us know what he did to deserve his ‘A’ rating. The NRA believes in putting suspected terrorists, convicted felons, and domestic abusers ahead of our children and the safety of our communities,” said Chryl Anderson, a volunteer with the Florida chapter of Moms Demand Action. “When Moms cast their votes yesterday, they turned that ‘A’ rating into last place at the ballot box.”
The Florida chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America launched a targeted campaign asking Carl Domino to explain his ‘A’ rating from the National Rifle Association. The NRA supports several extreme positions, including:
- Making it Easy for Terrorists to Buy Guns: The NRA has opposed efforts to block terror suspects from buying firearms and explosives.
- Keeping Felons Armed: The NRA fought for the rights of felons to buy and own firearms.
- Endangering Victims of Domestic Violence: The NRA has opposed laws requiring dangerous domestic abusers to surrender their guns.
The campaign came just ahead of midterm elections as Moms from around the country – and in Florida –ramped up mobilization efforts to galvanize support for gun sense champions.
