How much does it cost to block a bill in the U.S. Senate? What about a bill that’s supported by an overwhelming majority of the American people?
45 Senators voted to block a bill to expand criminal background checks, and the gun lobby spent at least $8,165,490 to support their campaigns.
Check out the receipt for Senator Heller’s vote.
91% of Americans — including 74% of NRA members — support criminal background checks for all gun sales. But Senator Heller ignored the will of his constituents and gave in to the money and influence of the gun lobby. It’s shameful and everyone should know about it.
