Gun control activists set to flex muscle in battle for Senate
By Julia Manchester and Alex Gangitano - 08/11/19 08:00 AM EDT

Groups like March for our Lives and the Brady PAC are mobilizing to defeat senators who oppose gun control legislation in the aftermath of two mass shootings that have shaken the country.

The focus on shaping gun control legislation comes after two separate shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, last weekend resulted in more than 30 people dead.


 Gun control groups already mobilized in 2018, outspending the National Rifle Association for the first time to help Democrats took over the House.

Democrats then followed up by passing anti-gun legislation. But that legislation has stalled in the Senate where Republicans have a 53-47 advantage, giving urgency to the push by activists to target senators who have opposed stronger gun control laws.

The chief focus for these groups this time around will be defeating senators in battleground states, mainly Republican Sens. Cory Gardner (Colo.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Martha McSally (Ariz.), and Susan Collins (Maine), and Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa).
