Gun Group's Rhetoric Signals Tough Road for Legislation

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
As Lieberman and other members of Congress begin a new conversation about gun violence, groups such as Gun Owners of America could make it harder to move legislation.

Democrats “appear oblivious to the fact that their anti-gun mentality created a deadly situation in Aurora, Colorado, where there was a room with a number of trained military marksmen — and none of them were allowed to have a gun,” the GOA wrote in a fundraising email to supporters. “Any of those individuals could have made a big difference. Heck, does anyone doubt there would have been a different outcome if George Zimmerman had been in the room?”

Zimmerman is now awaiting trial on a second-degree murder charge.
