FAIRFAX, Va.— The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today launched a six-figure TV ad campaign highlighting that Sen. Jon Tester cannot be trusted to support the rights of Montana's law-abiding gun owners. The ad will air statewide on cable and broadcast television.
"Contrary to what Jon Tester says in Montana, he has supported the gun control agenda of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer by voting in favor of gun control in Washington, D.C,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA-ILA.
Tester has supported criminalizing the private transfer of firearms between lifelong friends and some family members, which the Obama justice department said could only be enforced through federal gun registration. Tester voted with Chuck Schumer and the anti-gun liberal left to confirm anti-gun Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor to the U.S. Supreme Court. He also voted against the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch, a pro-Second Amendment justice, to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Montana gun owners deserve a trustworthy, consistent advocate for their Second Amendment freedoms,” continued Cox. “Jon Tester cannot be trusted to stand with President Trump and support our fundamental right to self-defense.”

Jon Tester has two faces.
In Montana, he says he supports gun rights.
But in Washington, D.C., his votes tell a different story.
In all three votes on Supreme Court justices, Tester sided with Chuck Schumer and the anti-gun liberal left.
AGAINST your right to self-defense.
What Jon Tester says in Montana
Isn’t what he does in Washington, D.C.
Jon Tester has two faces
And we can’t trust either one.
