Talking to Pennsylvania’s Gun Owners

Since I was representing this year at the NRA meeting, I decided to do a little research on attendees. I picked up my media credentials on Thursday, got permission to film without an escort, and didn’t step back into the press office again during the weekend. When I wasn’t interviewing NRA protesters, I was interviewing NRA members from Pennsylvania to conduct a bit of a survey on their civic engagement with elections, campaigns, and voting.

I also questioned people on whether their mayors were members of MAIG and whether their members of Congress were pro or anti-gun. The good news is that people overwhelmingly got those questions right. The only wrong MAIG response was from someone who thought his current mayor was a member, but his mayor is not part of Bloomberg’s coalition of anti-gun mayors. So that’s okay for him to be wrong since it’s good news. :) On the Congressman question, a couple of folks from Pittsburgh were mistaken by saying their guy is pro-gun. But, if they claim to be “from Pittsburgh,” but are really from any suburbs, then their actual Congressman may not be anti-gun.

Apologies for some shaky camera work. I should probably remember the tripod next time.

    Nice video.

    Ed Morrissey wrote a post saying there is no good way for Obama to win reelection without Pennsylvania. I have been wondering if the NRA is that smart or if they just got lucky?

    It took me a week to finally get the time to watch it, but that was a great assortment of interviews.
