NRA Takes Aim At Kerry In Major Market TV Ads

Print More

John Kerry shot clay pigeons on a recent Wisconsin campaign stop, says Time magazine. Kerry supporters see his hunting skills as a shield against the National Rifle Association, which spent more than $2 million helping Republicans attack Al Gore in 2000. The NRA complains that Kerry has supported banning assault weapons and armor-piercing bullets, requiring background checks at gun shows, and regulating gun sales over the Internet. The group plans to attack Kerry’s record in TV spots that will begin airing this week in Washington and other large markets. The tag line: “How can you keep a straight face and talk out of both sides of your mouth?”
