Hunting For The Real John Kerry

Friday, September 24, 2004

After years of frontal assaults that ended in defeat at the hands of our nation`s gun owners, gun-banners have revised an old adage, "If you can`t beat ‘em, make it look as if you`ve joined ‘em." Don`t be misled. This anti-gun flanking maneuver is nothing more than a camouflage covering over years of anti-gun votes, public statements attacking gun owners, and countless attempts to destroy our hunting and sporting heritage.

Leading this masquerade parade of cloaked candidates is none other than the Democratic Presidential nominee, Senator John F. Kerry (D-Mass.). Having served twenty years in the United States Senate, John Kerry`s voting record clearly illustrates where he really stands on the issues that are important to gun owners. Twenty months of staged campaign photo-ops and empty rhetoric crafted to appeal to true sportsmen cannot trump two decades of public contempt for the Second Amendment.

Depending on the location of his next campaign stop, John Kerry will either tout his credentials as a "life long hunter," or boast of his 100% rating from the Brady Campaign. He will speak with great pride about taking time from the campaign trail in March to fly back to Washington, D.C., just to derail critical legislation that would have put an end to the reckless, predatory lawsuits designed to cripple the firearm manufacturing industry. At the same time, he will preen for cameras and gladly accept as a gift, a firearm that he, along with gun-ban stalwarts Senators Kennedy (D-Mass.), Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Feinstein (D-Cal.), are working so tirelessly to ban!

With the compliance of the media elite, Kerry is trying to pull the wool over the eyes of NRA members. We won`t stand for it, and neither should you. As an NRA member, we rely on you to help educate friends, family, neighbors, and fellow sportsmen about John Kerry`s very real, very anti-gun record, as well as his frightening future gun ban agenda.

To assist you in this effort, we have posted a variety of information on the official NRA campaign site-- www.NRAPVF.org --which will serve as your campaign season reference guide, enabling you to spread the truth about John Kerry. In addition to all of the late-breaking campaign news, candidate grades/endorsements, and firearm issue background information, you will also find our multimedia section-- www.nrapvf.org/Multimedia/Default.aspx --which houses easy-to-access ads which are perfectly suited for distribution among your fellow NRA Members! Please visit these sites frequently and share them with your fellow NRA Members.

With so few days between now and Election Day, November 2, please be sure that you leave no stone unturned in your efforts! Keep up the great work, and "Vote Freedom First" on November 2!
