Gun control group focusing on 15 Republican House districts

A major gun control group is investing $5 million in digital ads focused on 15 Republican House districts that could turn blue in the upcoming midterm elections, Politico reported.

Everytown for Gun Safety, which was founded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is targeting 15 suburban districts highlighted in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Red to Blue" target list, according to the news outlet.

The districts, which are mostly outside of cities, include communities in New Jersey, Georgia, Virginia, Colorado, Michigan and more, it added.

“Suburban swing districts are going to make this election, and gun safety resonates extremely high with suburban voters,” John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety, told Politico. “We’re trying to galvanize new, young and suburban voters in a way that they’ve never been engaged before and meeting them exactly where they are.”

The group is reportedly targeting some of the most highly watched races of the midterms, including the face-off between Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), a 30-year incumbent, and his opponent, Democrat Harley Rouda. Other vulnerable Republican incumbents being targeted by Everytown's ads include Reps. Tom MacArthur (N.J.), Barbara Comstock (Va.), Mike Bishop (Mich.).

The ads feature images of students leaving school buildings after mass shootings, filing out with their hands in the air, according to Politico.

“Not one more high school," one ad says, the news outlet reported. "Not one more church. Not one more concert, office, campus, newspaper, kindergarten class. Not one more."

Everytown also plans to spend $10 million on the gubernatorial races in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and New Mexico, it added.

Please bring in some antifa protestors as well. That will cement this for you.

Was in at the permit clerk’s office yesterday (NY) getting a permit update. I could not believe the people coming in there to get amendments to their permits. The place was hopping.

The idiot left is doing everything they can to sell guns. LOL

Another step towards total gun control. Get the House, then beat Trump, then start with tearing down the Constitution. The End is in sight.

I saw this one this morning.

With all the ads here, one would think either Donald Trump or the NRA is running for office in Colorado. Because that's all they talk about.

TN and OK aren’t on the list. Why you may ask? Because it’s an automatic loss in statewide elections and all but 3 house districts , if you say the words, “For gun control” in your sleep.

Who “funds” these anti-American agents?

Russia?

Or China?

Or Iran?

IMHO, the FBI should stop trying to provide “cover” for their head office Quislings and should start protecting America again.

They can spend all they want and Gretchen might make it to governor but I guarantee you there will be no gun control in Michigan.

Dear Mr. Bloomberg:
Please explain how you plan on preventing thousands of illegal guns from flooding across our open borders, thanks to you Democrats, into the hands of criminals once you disarm law abiding citizens.

Mike Bishop (Mich.)

The idiots in Lansing, East Lansing, and Okemos may be on board with this, but it's not going to sell in the rest of the district.

They are after Coffman hard. Can you believe a Republican congressman votes with a Republican resident most of the time? The horror!

Probably. Maybe. Those you listed. But you can toss in Soro’s name and other anti American scum.
