Politico: Gabby's Gun-Control Group Hauls in $11 Million

Posted By on Wed, May 8, 2013 at 6:13 PM

Politico reports today that Americans for Responsible Solutions, the gun-regulation organization formed earlier this year, has raised $11 million:

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords’ gun control group has raised a staggering $11 million over the past four months.

Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly formed Americans for Responsible Solutions following the Newtown, Conn., mass shooting to push for stronger gun laws.

Since then, they’ve built a membership of nearly 366,000 and received donations from roughly 53,500 donors, according to information provided to POLITICO.

It’s unclear who the donors are, or whether the bulk of the fundraising haul comes from mega donors, the way Mayor Mike Bloomberg aids his anti-gun effort. Americans for Responsible Solutions did not respond to requests about who gave contributions to the group.
