Guns Laws Bring Cash Into Campaigns

Money on both sides of the gun-control debate is pouring into the governor’s race in Connecticut, reports the Wall Street Journal, where the issue has taken on deep resonance since the deadly shooting at a Newtown school. Americans for Responsible Solutions, founded by former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has spent about $750,000 on the race. The National Shooting Sports Foundation says it will be spending “a multiple of seven figures” on races in Connecticut and Colorado, which also has recently passed gun restrictions.
