Obama calls on each and every American to stand up to the NRA:


The only way we will be able to change is if their audience, their constituents, their membership says, this time must be different, that this time we must do something to protect our communities and our kids.

TIMELINE: NRA repeatedly responds to massacres by lobbying for weaker gun safety

How the NRA has responded to mass shootings (and it’s already started pushback post-Newtown):

5 Dead. Minneapolis, MN, 9/27/12

The NRA stayed silent. A month and a half later, an NRA-backed bill wasintroduced in the Texas Legislature for 2013 that would reduce the training required to get a concealed carry permit to just 4 hours. The NRA pushed hard for a similar bill but were defeated in Ohio the day before the elementary school shooting in Connecticut.

12 Dead. Aurora, CO, 7/20/12

NRA sent out a letter to supporters asking for donations to protect the future of Second Amendment rights. Twenty days later, the NRA lobbiedfor a 2013 Florida bill to legalize carrying exposed firearms in public.

5 Dead. Seattle, WA, 5/29/12

One month later, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) signed a law repealing restrictions on certain kinds of gun sales and relaxing licensing requirements for gun dealers. The NRA celebrated the legislation as “an end to South Carolina’s experiment with radical anti-gun policies.”

5 Dead. Tulsa, OK, 4/6/12

The NRA ignored the tragedy, but published a blog post the very next day discussing the Tulsa Arms Show. One month later, Oklahoma passed a law allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without a permit if they live in a state that does not require a concealed-carry permit. Reciprocity of permit laws is one of the NRA’s pet issues.

3 Dead. Chardon, OH, 2/27/12

An NRA spokesman assured Ohio their “thoughts and prayers are with the entire family and the Chardon community.” Twenty two days later, the NRA successfully pushes for an Indiana law, the first of its kind, allowingcivilians to open fire on public servants — including police officers — if they feel they are the victims of an “unlawful intrusion.” According to thebill’s author, the specific targeting of “public servants” was added after the state Supreme Court ruled there was no right to resist unlawful entry by police officers. That case involved a man who had assaulted an officer answering a domestic-violence call.

That’s just for this year. Read the full timeline.
