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 Fund … Kirsten Gillibrand has received the most gun control money, $3,300, followed by … Michael McMahon and Daniel Maffei … with $250 each …”
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.
