On the day he wrapped up the Democratic Presidential nomination, Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) proved that actions speak louder than words, and once again confirmed his hostility toward the rights of law-abiding gun owners.
Despite ridiculous rhetoric about being a supporter of the Second Amendment, Kerry`s voting record shows that his perennial F-rating from NRA`s Political Victory Fund is well deserved. The Massachusetts Senator, who has been AWOL from Washington for months while he`s been running for President, returned to Washington on Tuesday, and spoke in favor of, and then voted for, the Feinstein Amendment. Senator Kerry also voted for the McCain-Reed gun show amendment. These were the first votes Kerry had cast this year. Kerry was joined by his vanquished primary opponent, Senator John Edwards (D-N.C.), who also supported the two measures.
While Kerry will have to worry about his anti-gun voting record dogging him during the presidential campaign, one thing he won`t have to worry about is something he uttered last year: "I am not looking to be the candidate of the NRA."
