Gun control donations

U.S. News & World Report had a posting on their site yesterday “Gun Rights Groups Out-Donate Gun Control Groups.”  Of note:

“… Individuals and PACs associated with gun control groups have given far less money this election, with $5,050 total. Over half of this money has come from one PAC–the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Voter Education FundKirsten Gillibrand has received the most gun control money, $3,300, followed by … Michael McMahon and Daniel Maffei … with $250 each …”

Add to this $250 from New Yorkers Against Gun Violence to Michelle Schimel last month.

If either of these groups had a real grassroots they would have been able to raise a whole lot more.  These are not large donations by New York standards.
