The NRA attacks Kerry

The NRA, steering clear from endorsing Bush (mark my words, when the assault weapons ban expires, they will), is going to run ads on Kerry’s record on guns. I don’t care about that. What I found most interesting from the article is this quote:

Addressing another major issue, LaPierre said the NRA is so confident Congress and President Bush will allow a federal assault-weapons ban to expire on Monday that it doesn’t plan to run any ads pushing for an end to the 10-year-old ban.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said Wednesday that the Senate wouldn’t revisit the assault weapons-ban issue this year. Republicans tabled the issue earlier this year at the NRA’s request.

The NRA is confident the ban will expire. And, since no gun control has passed in this country without their approval since 1934, I’d say the fix is in.

    Except maybe the AW ban itself, and the Brady Act, and …

    They wanted the brady act and were willing to trade the awb for the NICS.

  3. Xrlq Says:

    They didn’t want either bill. They did have a hand in watering both down somewhat at the end, but that’s hardly the same as supporting the bills.

  4. SayUncle Says:

    You’re right about that. Approval was probably a bad word to use. Tolerate is more fitting. They could have, for example, called for a filibuster of the AWB but didn’t because they wanted NICS more.

  5. Publicola Says:

    Actually they wanted the instant check system. The NRa never had a problem with registrationg schemes like that. So Uncle was correct the first time.

Used three kinds of generics. I liked the Levitra Pills more, although the others acted quite well. Perhaps it all depends on the characteristics of each organism.
