Pledge to vote against NRA candidates

May 2022:  A white supremacist brought domestic terrorism to a Buffalo supermarket, killing 10.  An 18-year-old who had recently, legally bought two AR15 assault rifles and hundreds of rounds killed 21 at a primary school in Uvalde.  These and other killers are unambiguously enabled by the NRA and its virtual ownership of the elected officials it contributes millions of dollars to.  These governors and Congresspeople deliberately block gun law reform and some, like Texas Governor Abbott, pass laws weakening gun restrictions. Abbott has a 100% approval rating from the NRA.  Mitch McConnell flaunted democratic principles and proudly stopped two bipartisan gun law reform bills.   He’s had over $1 million in donations from the NRA.  We pledge to VOTE THEM OUT.

In 2020, 45,000 people died in gun violence in the US, over half were suicides, and 19,000 died in violent incidents.

No other country in peacetime in the west has anything like these figures.

The NRA puts in place politicians who support its rhetoric and who thwart all attempts at gun law reforms.

We just learned in a new article from Fortune that the gun lobby outspent the gun law reform groups by five times in the last elections.  We cannot allow the country to be run by those who have more money than respect for the lives of those taken or otherwise impacted by gun violence: Voting is essential.

Buffalo Shooting is Domestic Terrorism: demand it is so treated

“And you expect us to do this over and over and over again, forgive and forget,” he said, “while the people we elect do their best not to protect us, consider us equal, not to love us back? What do we do with all of this pain?” – civil rights attorney Ben Crump

A white supremacist, who was known to authorities,  drove from Binghamton to Buffalo New York with the intent of killing black people and to spread his racist, violent manifesto:  this is domestic terrorism, racist terrorism and must be treated that way.

The US justice department is investigating the Buffalo massacre as a hate crime and an act of racially motivated violent extremism. That is not going far enough.

The National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism says Domestic Terrorism “…has, over centuries, taken many American lives and spilled much American blood – especially in communities deliberately and viciously targeted on the basis of hatred and bigotry” – which fits this case.  The Strategy document includes “Strategic Goal 3.1: Enable appropriate enhanced investigation and prosecution of domestic terrorism crimes” – and we feel strongly the Buffalo mass shooting requires enhanced investigation.

We owe it to the victims to back up Ben Crump’s call and the calls of others for this case to be declared domestic terrorism.  In an article in The Guardian, he called on authorities to investigate how the Buffalo gunman developed hateful beliefs, including examining if “race replacement theory” played a role in the attack.  Mr Crump also called out “accomplices to this mass murder”, which he identified as websites, politicians and cable news pundits.  The forces which radicalised this killer, past and future killers must be identified and dealt with as terrorists – that is what they are.


We will send a letter of support to Mr Crump, to Congress and to media which carried Mr Crump’s call.  Read the letter here:
