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.

  1. This is a rather lame criticism of the editing error in the NAGR ad copy. In the paragraph numbered 1, they correctly use the pronoun “her”. A more helpful article would address the substance of the NAGR ad and of Sen. Collins’s positions on gun control legislation that violates the second amendment.

  2. Sen. Collins needs to stand up and fight Obama’s gun grab agenda. King Angus is a lost cause as he’s been bought and paid for by Bloomberg, and as Shumer so eloquently said, he has King’s vote in his back pocket. Pingree is also a lost cause as the moonbat will following Obama over a cliff. Michaud is also highly suspect, as he usually only does what Nancy Pelosi tells him to do.
