Yes it seems likely that Gaetz will be indicted/charged. But until that happens, we shouldn't assume anything. And regardless, if Cheney can be ostracized for her behavior, doesn't that say something about the Party in that they haven't done it to Gaetz yet? I mean I personally like to think Gaetz is hated by most in the party, but feelings without words and actions are meaningless.
What responsibility does the NRA (aren't they a defunct organization?) have in the Republican Party choosing what members do/don't represent the party values? Sure you can point at the NRA as being one who "contributed" to this rhetoric, but it doesn't change the core of my criticism and point.

“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or my grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantative content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.” -Carl Sagan 1995 "What is existence but the absorption of and reaction to the data that the universe presents. You can either grasp these truths or you can misinterpret them to your constant and considerable agitation."
