In the past couple of campaign years – 2014 and 2016 – Republicans raised a lot more money running anti-gun control campaign ads. In 2014, there were 8,598 Republican anti-gun control ads run compared to only 558 gun control ads run by Democrats. In 2016, Democrats increased their gun control ads to 4,450, but Republicans also increased their anti-gun control ads to 12,979.

So far in 2018, Republicans have only run about 8,500 anti-gun control ads compared to over 18,400 gun control ads run by Democrats and their ads are working in helping to fill their campaign coffers, but this year, they also have the help of mainstream media’s emotional hype.

Trending: BREAKING: Kavanaugh Accuser May NOT Show Up to Thursday Hearing (Details)

That messaging represents a reversal from the last midterm cycle in 2014 and even 2016, when the combined total of pro-gun-rights spots in governors, House and Senate races eclipsed those touting restrictions on guns, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from Kantar Media.

The shift follows a rash of mass shootings, including the killing of 17 students and staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School six months ago Tuesday.

Democrats are driving the surge in advertising favoring gun control as polling shows the public generally supports stricter laws covering the sale of firearms and overwhelmingly supports expanded background checks…

The bottom line is that America is being destroyed along with all of our constitutional rights and it’s the Democrats and mainstream media who are the ones that are destroying it. Unless patriotic Americans start standing up and fighting for their rights, it won’t be long before we have lost our right to bear arms, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and many more of our constitutional and God-given rights.
