Republican Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania admitted the National Rifle Association (NRA) doesn’t draw its power from political donations but from the size of its membership.
Co-host Dave Briggs asked Dent if gun control measures were failing because of the NRA’s monetary contributions to Congress, and Dent said he doesn’t believe that to be true.
“If you could pull back the curtain a little bit and just share with us, what happens. How does this fail each and every time?” Briggs asked. “Is it as simple as saying the NRA is just too powerful and people can’t say no to their donations?”
“No I don’t think so,” Dent said Monday on CNN’s “New Day.” “I think the issue with the NRA is the NRA’s real power is in their members, more than money. That’s been my view. They have lots of members all around the country and that’s what makes them pretty strong.”
“But that said, I can’t speak as to why leadership does not want to permit a vote on this in the House,” Dent concluded.
