Obama’s Political Advocacy Group Gains 1.4 Million Signatures for Gun Control, Plus Support from George Soros

Whether you like him or not, President Barack Obama is a great community organizer. Arguably, his grassroots tactics, his ability to mobilize the masses behind a cause is the main reason he is a two-term president.

Since the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, Obama has been using these skills via his political advocacy group – Organizing for Action (OFA) – to push for tougher gun laws. Not surprisingly, OFA has gained some traction.

Thus far, OFA has collected more than 1.4 million signatures on a petition urging congressional leaders to reintroduce a bill that would expand background checks to firearm purchases made at gun shows or over the Internet, CNN reported.

On Thursday, the group will present the petition to leaders in Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
