Midterms Closed Door On Gun Control At Federal Level

by AWR Hawkins  |  published on November 10, 2014

With the midterm elections largely decided, save for a small number of races, federal gun control legislation that seemed improbable with a Democrat-run Senate looks nearly impossible with a Senate run by Republicans.

In fact, the door on federal gun control legislation seems to have slammed shut.

According to The Hill, the NRA “endorsed 279 congressional candidates” and over 90 percent of them won. Contrast that with the results Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly’s gun control group got for their endorsements.

They “spent millions of dollars endorsing 16 congressional candidates” and lost in more than 50 percent of those races.

The NRA’ s Jennifer Baker reacted to these things by saying, “There’s no appetite for gun control in Washington. We now have a Senate leader who is pro-Second Amendment [Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY] so it will be even more difficult for [Democrats] to pass gun control measures.”
