NRA to Unload $40M Against Obama

The National Rifle Association plans to spend about $40 million on this year’s presidential campaign, with $15 million of that devoted to portraying Barack Obama as a threat to the Second Amendment rights upheld last week by the Supreme Court, Jonathan Martin at Politico.com reports.

“Our members understand that if Barack Obama is elected president, and he has support in the Senate to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court nominees, [the District of Columbia v. Heller decision] could be taken away from us in the future,” Chris Cox, head of the NRA’s political arm, told Politico.

Ben Smith, a Politico.com blogger, says the consequences might be “tougher going in some of those long-shot states, notably Montana and Alaska, where gun rights are big but where Obama may out-organize McCain.”

    Good, I’m glad they are wasting their money to try to derail Obama. They suck as much as the 2 bit greenies at Earth Justice and the Sierra Club. Most people don’t buy into the crap they spew.

    Here’s one gun-loving hunter who will never give a dime to the NRA.

  3. Sisyphus says:

    They must have an endless supply of money. Wouldn’t their money be better spent on litigating the myriad issues opened up by the Heller decision?

    It cracks me up to see people get upset with the NRA and what it does. I enjoy seeing them demonizing the NRA as if it where some sort of multination corporation. Sorry kids, the NRA is made up of people who live here. The NRA is indeed one of the largest lobbying forces in Washington. It speaks for a HUGE number of Americans regardless of your lefty loony outlook. Reality sucks doesnt it?

    Every person packing heat–with assault rifles in the garage and the basement. Dystopia, at last…

    And in the master suite, the den, the “gun room,” the living room….
