Most members of Congress are pawns in the hands of gun lobbyists, says former Ohio state senator Nina Turn …which is why she’s calling on another group to push gun reform forward.
We had the outspoken politician from Ohio at LAX, and she gave us way more than her 5 cents on Congress’ response — or lack thereof — to the tragic Texas mass shooting which killed 19 elementary school children and 2 adults.
Nina ripped elected officials for playing footy with gun lobbyists and insists politicians have the power to stop gun violence, but instead make decisions based solely on money and the power.
You can see and feel how fed up Turner is with politicians who refuse to act — and now she wants mothers across the country to unite and demand action from lawmakers.
Although we’ve seen many officials give speeches since the Uvalde tragedy, she calls BS, saying we need results rather than rhetoric.
And, insofar as Beto O’Rourke take on texas Governor Abbott at a press conference … Nina says it was genuine, and also a little theatre. But, as she explains… it’s necessary theater!
In a powerful closing plea, she says there’s only one way to break the gun lobbyists’ hold on Congress… “If the moms get together, we’ll shut this down!”
Moms to the rescue: what else is new?
