Gun Group's Gender-confused Ads Pressure Collins on Gun Control


Susan Collins NRA ad

The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR), a Fredericksburg, Virginia-based 501(c)4 lobbying group, began running ads last week on the popular conservative news website Drudge Report targeting U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine).

The high-profile ad buy urges Collins to join Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in pledging to filibuster “ANY and ALL gun control legislation.”

“That includes so-called ‘Gun-Trafficking,’ ‘Mental Health Screenings” or expanding ‘Background Checks!’,” according to the ads.

The ads follow similar ads from another gun group, the National Rifle Association (NRA), targeting Maine’s junior senator, un-enrolled Democrat Angus King of Brunswick.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the ads, though, is NAGR’s apparent confusion as to whether Collins is a man or a woman.
