"The NRA doesn't speak for me."
That's what Ohio MoveOn member, parent, and gun owner Jerry Thompson has to say to Senator Rob Portman—the 2nd largest Senate recipient of NRA contributions1—in a powerful new ad he just filmed. It will air for the next week all over Ohio.After the Newtown massacre and the National Rifle Association's disgusting response, Jerry had enough.The gun violence prevention fight is heating up in the Senate this month, and Sen. Portman holds a key vote.2 If millions of people see Jerry's ad, we can drown out the NRA's message and make Senator Portman listen to us.
The ad has already received great coverage in news outlets like CNN, USA Today and The Huffington Post.3Senator Portman, who holds a key vote on gun violence prevention policy, recorded a video thanking the NRA for their support in 2010.4 It's now time for him to stop listening to the NRA and start listening to people like Jerry. That's why every Ohioan—and every American—needs to see this ad and relay Jerry's message to Senator Portman: The NRA doesn't speak for me.Thanks for all you do.–Garlin, Susannah, Eric, Linda, and the rest of the team
