> 
> In a town hall in Johnston over the weekend, Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst was told by a school teacher about the various active shooter drills that she has trained for ahead of the upcoming school year.
> 
> To no one’s surprise, Ernst’s dodged the question, and tried to make an argument that the gun violence epidemic in our country is because in schools, “we’re short counselors, we’re short psychologists” -- falsely blaming this epidemic on mental health.
> 
> In response, one constituent in the audience exclaimed, “We’re short congresspeople that take action!” That constituent of Joni Ernst is right -- and it’s why we need to defeat her next year.

> Here's the thing: Joni Ernst knows damn well that mental health is not to blame for the gun violence epidemic. But her buddies at the NRA are begging her to push that false narrative so they can keep their white-knuckle grip of control on Congress.
> 
> Ernst has taken over $3 million in campaign cash from the NRA -- and moments like today further prove that she is merely a puppet for the gun lobby, and not a Senator for Iowa.

> Please make a grassroots donation to our Defeat Joni Ernst fund today if you’re ready to defeat the gun lobby and take back the United States Senate. <http://action.iowademocrats.org/page/m/5716fb51/4c4974d0/32570f50/603850c0/1887804997/VEsB/?g=g3OVVFH8x8VcQXcYUaLjVoA>
