Newsweek Reporter: Gabby Giffords, Newtown Families Will One Day Be More Powerful Than NRA

Newsweek‘s Eleanor Clift predicted a coming sea-change in American gun politics on this week’s McLaughlin Group. Clift said that the emergence of prominent victim advocates after tragic shootings has changed the politics of guns.

“The Newtown families and Gabby Giffords are in the gun debate to stay, and over time their voices will be more powerful than the NRA. The culture of guns is beginning to go through a transformation in this country,” she said.

Votes on proposed gun law reforms are expected to take place next week and right now it does not look promising for gun control advocates. Only time will tell whether Clift is right about her proclamation about a changing gun culture.
