NRA Launches TV Ad Buy to Defeat Bayh

Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has launched a 30-second television ad to educate Indiana voters about Evan Bayh’s anti-Second Amendment voting record. The ad, titled "Rewind," will air on both cable and broadcast stations in Indianapolis, South Bend and Fort Wayne from September 20-October 3.

"During his previous U.S. Senate career, Evan Bayh repeatedly voted in favor of gun control," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA. "Now he wants to go back to the Senate so he can do it again."

Bayh has earned an "F" rating from the NRA for his anti-Second Amendment voting record. In addition to supporting bans on ammunition and common hunting rifles, Evan Bayh voted to confirm two anti-Second Amendment Justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"Evan Bayh could be the deciding vote for an anti-gun Supreme Court justice, who would overturn our fundamental right to keep a firearm in the home for self-protection. So the stakes in this election could not be higher for law-abiding Indiana gun owners," concluded Cox.

The NRA is endorsing Todd Young for U.S. Senate, who has an A+ rating and will stand up for the constitutional freedoms of Second Amendment supporters in the Hoosier State.
