Take the pledge: Volunteer to help defeat NRA candidates

How is Congress responding to Sunday's terror attack in Las Vegas? By getting ready to pass a bill to make it easier to buy silencers -- a top priority for the NRA.

Republican elected officials offer their thoughts and prayers. They lower flags to half-staff. But they will never act to stop gun violence and mass shootings, because they're in league with the NRA.

The NRA is unrepentant. They and their allies in Congress don't think there's anything wrong with what happened in Las Vegas last night. In fact, they are doubling down in support of laws that enable white men like Stephen Paddock to use guns to terrorize their families and communities.

Congress has caved to the NRA after every mass shooting this decade, from Sandy Hook to San Bernardino, from Umpqua Community College in Oregon to the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and so many more. They will keep doing so until we defeat them at the ballot box.

DFA members are mobilizing to defeat the NRA and elect candidates who will confront gun violence with legislation and funding for gun safety and enforcement. This includes crucial elections in Virginia next month, where the NRA is spending big to defeat our candidates. Can you help?

Take the pledge: Volunteer to help DFA defeat NRA-backed candidates across the country in 2017 and 2018 -- and replace them with leaders who will stand up to the NRA and fight gun violence.
