Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today launched a seven-figure ad campaign to inform voters that Stacey Abrams supports an extreme gun-control agenda that would leave Georgians defenseless. The television ad, entitled Woman Working Late, will air on cable and broadcast stations.
"Stacey Abrams' radical anti-gun agenda is dangerous," said Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF Chairman. "She has led the fight for extreme gun control in the state legislature. If elected governor, she would work to enact policies that would leave law-abiding Georgians defenseless."
The ad features a woman leaving work late at night. As she enters her car she is attacked and when she reaches for her firearm it disappears. The ad illustrates the real life and death consequences of Stacey Abrams' extreme gun control agenda.
Abrams, an "F" rated candidate endorsed by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun group, has consistently led the effort to pass gun control in the state legislature. She supports banning commonly owned guns and ammunition as well as the criminalization of private firearm transfers between lifelong friends and many family members. Abrams also voted repeatedly against the right of law-abiding Georgians to carry a firearm for self-defense.
"Stacey Abrams opposes our right to self-defense. Her radical agenda is out of touch with Georgia values," concluded Cox.
