The Arms Reduction Network (ARN)
Although the majority of Americans support common sense gun reform, there has been no progress on this front from Congress. Part of this is due to the National Rifle Association, a powerful interest group which pours millions of dollars into anti-gun safety campaigns. The NRA is so successful because its small group of gun avid supporters are outspoken and willing to put their money where their mouths are. The mission of the ARN is simple: to match NRA funds to the opponents of candidates receiving these funds. If the majority of Americans who support common sense gun safety legislation are willing to donate to candidates who stand strong in the face of the NRA and uphold these values, the NRA can be easily outspent, thus losing its political influence. The donation process is simple, just click on the picture of the NRA opponent below you would like to support and donate directly to their campaign. The bar below shows how close we are to matching the NRA funds to their opponent. If you would like to directly support the work young people are doing through projects like the ARN with Generation E, you can donate directly to the youth PAC here.
