The Democratic National Committee is fundraising off the weekend’s tragic mass shootings [2] in El Paso, Texas [3], and Dayton, Ohio, seeking donations for the fight to “prevent gun violence and save lives.”

The DNC sent an email to supporters on Monday, signed by former Rep. Gabby Giffords, encouraging donors to “split” a donation of $10 to $200 between the DNC and Giffords’ PAC.

“Friend,” the email begins, “… We can’t afford to wait another day, or for another massacre to happen in our country, for lawmakers to address this. Yet the defenders of the status quo—the gun manufacturing lobby and every single politician who is paid to defend it—will tell you that horrific acts of violence are beyond our control.”

Giffords added: “I am telling you today this could not be further from the truth.”

“…If Congress—specifically Mitch McConnell and Republicans in the United States Senate—fail to take action, then we must act to replace them. Because until we act, shootings like these threaten to take even more lives and tear apart even more communities.”
