Wrong answer

This article on manly men running for office says:

The powerhouse lobbying group in the race is the National Rifle Association, which has nearly 4 million members and a $20 million budget for ads and other political activities. The group is running a 30-minute infomercial about Bush and Kerry on local network affiliates in seven or eight battleground states.

The NRA, which has endorsed Bush, calls Kerry “the most anti-gun presidential nominee in United States history” because of his votes for gun-control legislation. Kerry supports mandatory child-safety locks on handguns; Bush does not. Bush would protect gunmakers from liability lawsuits; Kerry would not. Kerry and Bush both would close a loophole that lets people buy guns at gun shows without a background check. Kerry voted for the 10-year ban on certain assault weapons that expired this month; Bush said he would sign an extension but did not lobby Congress to send him one.

The infomercial is anti-Kerry. I don’t know that it is pro-Bush. And, to my knowledge, the NRA hasn’t endorsed Bush yet.

Speaking of, a while back I pledged that if the ban sunsets, I’ll join the NRA. I guess I should probably do that now.

    If you join the NRA, be prepared for a deluge of fundraising junk mail.

    You do get a nice hat, though.

    Why not just join the RNC? Don’t see much difference between the two.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
