As if we needed any more evidence that the tech-savvy
are a fairly liberal bunch.
A new social app with the straightforward name of "Give Us Gun Control
" allows folks to easily look up who in Congress has taken money from the gun lobby and conveniently tweet this or that guilty representative with the hashtag of - no surprise here - "#GiveUsGunControl."
Social News Daily reports
on the application, which it admits could just as easily be used to pass along words of encouragement to the mostly Republican members of the House it highlights. Noting the "mugshot" style appearance of the representatives' pictures, it details the other features of Give Us Gun Control:
"The site also includes a few soundbites on the state of the gun control issue in the country, and hosts a donation link to the Brady Campaign, the country's largest gun control advocacy group."
As the site informs us, over half of Congress has taken campaign contributions from the likes of the National Rifle Association.
