What I don't get is when she says about the Senators heard from their constituents (who she says supported the bill), but yet voted against it because of the power of the NRA?
The NRA has been demonized ever since Sandy Hook. It happened in 1994. and to see it happen now is not unexpected.

It's not smart politics to insult gun owners directly (though that has happened). Portraying the NRA as an unscrupulous lobbying juggernaut with unlimited funds is a convenient scapegoating strategy.

Never mind that Michael Bloomberg alone outspent them this year.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
