In the Washington Post.Â This is a concerted effort on the part of the gun control groups to neutralize NRA’s electoral power in 2008.Â Â Of course, the Republicans already gave them a head start by nominating John McCain.
Overall, I think the WaPo did a reasonable job of keeping the article balanced and objective.Â Andrew bringing up Schoenke’s $5000 donation to Handgun Control Inc is a great thing to get in there.Â The real killer is Paul Helmke saying nice things about AHSA:
“I see our issues as complementary to theirs,” Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, says about Schoenke’s association. “They’re a positive group.”
That’s all anyone needs to know right there.Â AHSA is an organization for gun owners who hate the second amendment.
