How Come There’s no Anti-Gun Lobby?

happiness

So people are angry with the Senate for failing to pass gun control, but the problem is “structural.” Maybe it’s the culture too, or maybe one of the reasons that the gun people win all the time has something to do with organization. They raise money, spend money, bang on doors, lobby, lobby, lobby. Liberals and progressives need to stop whining. Or is politics something that “we” just talk about but don’t do or know how to do? Whatever you think about it, J-Street seems to have caught on to this. How come there’s no anti-gun lobby? I’d join in a red-hot minute.
