9 Out Of 11 Highest NRA Funded GOP Senators Joined Democrats On Gun Control
How does one take money from the National Rifle Association before helping reign in arguably unconstitutional gun control? National Association for Gun Rights, a well-known Second Amendment advocacy group, is likely wondering exactly that after they pointed out that 9 out of the top 11 most NRA-funded Republican Senators joined forces with Democrats to pass a series of never-before-seen gun control at the federal level.
The National Association for Gun Rights aired their frustration with the recent news on Twitter.
“Would you look at that… 9 out of top 11 highest NRA funded US Senators voted FOR selling out your gun rights to the Democrats,” the group wrote online. “In other words this compromise was brought to you by the @NRA. Care to explain Wayne?”
Would you look at that!
9 out of top 11 highest NRA funded US Senators voted FOR selling out your gun rights to the Democrats.
In other words this compromise was brought to you by the @NRA.

The Second Amendment advocacy group shared a list pulled from a Newsweek report titled “Full List of Republican Senators Who Receive Funding From the NRA.”
Included in the list of Republican politicians taking massive sums of money from the NRA while still joining forces with the left on whittling down Second Amendment rights was Mitt Romney (Utah), Richard Burr (North Carolina), Roy Blunt (Missouri), Thom Tillis (North Carolina), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Rob Portman (Ohio), Todd C. Young (Indiana), Bill Cassidy (Louisiana), and Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania).
This news comes after a Texas Department of Public Safety director argued during a state Senate hearing that Uvalde police responding to the district’s recent school shooting could have ended the tragic incident in a mere 3 minutes as opposed to the full hour in which the shooting commenced.
“I don’t care if you have on flip-flops and Bermuda shorts, you go in,” Texas DPS Director Col. Steve McCraw told politicians during a testimony at a state Senate hearing.
Government workers within the city have also been no stranger to controversy; recent reports have also revealed that Uvalde’s government has hired private law firms in an attempt to stop further potential evidence of police misconduct during the heinous event from being released to the public.
