Top NRA money recipients, including Roy Blunt, urge caution in discussing gun laws after Florida school shooting
McClatchy reports that Sen. Roy Blunt, R-MO, who has received more than $4.5 million from the National Rifle Association, third most among members of Congress, is urging caution for anyone who thinks that gun control laws are needed in response to the murder of 17 people during the school shooting in Florida.
"Let's see if any of the current laws were violated or if there's any law that anybody has in mind that would have made a difference,” Blunt told reporters.
That's the kind of loyalty $4.5 million will get you.
