Lagging in the polls, Kentucky Democratic Senatorial candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes is running a campaign ad knocking down clays as she distances herself from President Obama on “guns, coal and the EPA.” Strangely, Grimes’ stance on firearms freedom doesn’t appear on her campaign website’s issues page. I did find this at ontheissues.org: “As an NRA member, my strong support for the Second Amendment is unquestioned. I am proud of Kentucky’s long-held gun ownership, sporting and hunting traditions.” . . .
Maybe someone should question her support; where she stands on universal background checks, ammunition magazine capacity limits, that sort of thing. And ask her why President Obama thinks her election will help gun control. And whether she rejects the Democrat Party platform’s stance on gun control, which calls for the reinstatement of the “assault weapon” ban and subjecting gun rights to “reasonable regulation.”
Don’t hold your breath. But do withhold your support.
