Gun Ad

21Oct08

The NRA has a pretty strong ad attacking Obama on guns.

In battleground states Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, the National Rifle Association will be taking aim at Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., with this new ad.

The ad refers to a 2003 incident when a Wilmette, Ill., restaurateur named Hale DeMar shot and wounded a burglar who broke into his house. DeMar was prosecuted by the town of Wilmette, which had, at the time, a ban on the possession of handguns, so some Illinois lawmakers introduced legislation to offer legal protections to individuals who use firearms in self-defense. The bill passed the Illinois state House by a vote of 86-25, and the Illinois state Senate — where Obama voted against it — by a vote of 39-20.

Who would vote against such a measure? Why?

    It’s because guns are racist.
