Oh look. They're part of the 'States United Against Gun Violence'(merged w/ the Freedom States Alliance', that collection of insignificant and mostly memberless 'grassroots' groups which were created to try and make it look like gun control has more support than it actually does and are grant recipients of the Joyce Foundation.
No wonder all those talking points sounded familiar.
