Elizabeth Warren’s NRA Donation Sham

posted on August 6, 2018

In late May, Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., bravely proclaimed, “I’m running for re-election to the U.S. Senate here in Massachusetts, and I pledge not to take a single penny from the National Rifle Association.” Her video appeared on news site NowThis.

She could just as easily have said that she was running for re-election and vowed not to take any money from those who weren’t donating to her campaign. Her widely mocked “pledge” serves as nothing more than an empty, meaningless proclamation. The NRA has never given Warren a penny, nor would it. In fact, people like Warren are the very reason that the NRA exists. Her anti-freedom, anti-gun stance represents everything the NRA fights against.

Massachusetts state Rep. Geoff Diehl, one of several candidates vying for the Republican Senate nomination, blasted the senator. “Warren has never stood up for people’s Second Amendment rights, so it is another media stunt to gain exposure,” Diehl’s spokesman Holly Robichaud wrote in an email message. “She should also pledge not to take money from taxpayers because she has done nothing to help them as well.”
