The NRA Called Kamala Harris an 'Existential Threat' to Gun Rights and Harris Just Had the Perfect Response

Conservative Spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association Dana Loesch railed against 2020 Presidential candidate and current Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) on NRA TV.

Loesch insisted that Harris is a "socialist" and an "existential threat" to the right of Americans to bear arms.

Loesch then asked viewers to donate to the National Rifle Association, calling it "the one organization powerful enough to disrupt the socialist plans to disarm America," and "the one organization that she fears."

Harris, who recounts learning to use her gut as a prosecutor in her recent memoir The Truths We Hold, didn't hesitate to confront Loesch.

There have been approximately 35 mass shootings since the beginning of 2019, so many Americans rallied behind Harris's response.

Loesch, however, was right about one thing.

Republican lawmakers are widely influenced by the stratospheric amounts of money the NRA donates to Republican campaigns.

In the 2016 election alone, the organization spent a total of $419 million to elect Republican candidates. It was an increase of $100 million from the previous election cycle, leading many to believe the increase in funds were gained by insidious measures.

One 2018 poll showed 60% of Americans believe the NRA had too much influence on American politics.

Their bulwark against sensible gun control reform disturbs Americans everywhere.

However, not all hope is lost.

The 2018 midterms saw gun control groups outspend the NRA for the first time.

President Donald Trump's hatred of the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, was widely known even before McCain cast the decisive vote that saved the Affordable Care Act in 2017.

That hatred has only worsened since that vote, with Trump initially refusing to lower flags at half staff to honor him and even implying that McCain is in Hell.
