The NRA gives the vast majority of their money to GOP candidates, but these are the 27 that received money this past cycle.  I am not saying we need to target them or anything, I am personally just going to e very interested in how they vote on the upcoming gun issues.  Obviously they got the money because they have shown some sympathies to the RKBA, but will these folks be receptive to reasonable gun legislation or not? I will e watching with interest

UPDATED: Thanks to the several commenters who reminded me that these guys are not all coming back.  Pretty dumb of me not to even check that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
