The @NRA opposes the Violence Against Women Act because “the legislation could lead to firearm confiscations over misdemeanor domestic violence or stalking convictions.”

Why are we letting the gun lobby write our gun laws? #vawa

According to @dnewhauser, there was a Monday conference call during which GOP leaders urged the @NRA to go big now so GOP lawmakers who vote against #VAWA have political cover.
The Violence Against Women Act, which gives law enforcement tools to remove guns from abusers, doesn’t have a single Republican co-sponsor seven weeks before it’s expiration. #VAWA has been reauthorized three times since 1994 with bipartisan support. nytimes.com/2019/03/13/us/…
