For Sale: A piece of authentic political memorabilia that played a role in deciding the outcome of the 2004 presidential campaign!
While bumper stickers and pins are good ways to show support for a candidate, races for president do not hinge upon messages as simple as “Vote for Bush” or “Kerry for President.” In the closely fought 2004 presidential contest every vote counted, especially in swing states such as Ohio and West Virginia.
This banner, used by the National Rifle Association to provide voters with information regarding Senator Kerry’s record of hostility towards the 2nd Amendment, was important in turning out pro-Second Amendment voters. Displayed at NRA rallies and gun shows as it crisscrossed battleground states in the final frantic month of the contest, the banner sent a simple but effective message to voters: John Kerry’s record shows that he will take away your guns. Whatever one’s views of the NRA, its impact and influence cannot be ignored. Likewise, the role this banner played cannot be discounted.
Made of nylon, the banner measures eight feet long and four feet high and is in good condition. There are no rips or tears - it can take a beating considering it survived a presidential contest. Whether sought after by a gun owner, political memorabilia collector or someone hoping to educate others on truly effective political communications, this banner is a valuable piece of history.
NRA-PVF Chairman and NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox will be happy to personally autograph the banner for the highest bidder (if desired).
