Keeping After Politicians

Uncle is doing a great job of keeping after Knoxville’s mayor who intends to run for Governor of Tennessee as a current member of Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun.  Bill Haslam has somewhat backed off from his support of the iniatives publicly after the pressure placed upon him, but he still refuses to officially withdraw his support of their agenda by way of membership out of the fear that it will make him look like he gives a damn about what gun owners think.

Considering that Uncle’s site is in the top search results for even a generic search on Bill Haslam’s name, it shows just what kind of pressure a good campaign and local coverage via blogs can create.  I discussed this last year in my presentation at the NRA meeting, and hopefully we’ll see some more results in Tennessee.
