Sen. Rand Paul, the tea party favorite and possible 2016 presidential candidate, is raising money for a conservative gun rights group thats targeting fellow Republicans, including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.
And when one congressman complained, the message from Pauls camp was: too bad.
The Kentucky Republican has lent his name to fundraising pitches for the National Association for Gun Rights, a group that says the National Rifle Association is too willing to compromise on gun rights.
The group has blitzed the districts of Virginia Republicans Cantor and Rep. Scott Rigell with $50,000 worth of TV and radio ads accusing them of helping President Barack Obama pass gun control legislation.
Pauls email pitches for the group dont mention Cantor or Rigell by name, but his activity for an organization that attacks fellow Republicans shows the potential 2016 presidential contender isnt afraid to pick a fight inside the party.

Mitt Romney and his inept campaign made Obama’s second term possible. Don’t blame Romney critics for actually being right about his un-electibility.
Are you sure Ron Paul wasn’t at the original Boston Tea Party in ‘73?
I don't know the guy, but if he's a big-government Rino, he's just the guy we don't need.
Notice that the same cast of characters on here who cheered for Ron Paul in 2012 are now cheering for Rand this time around. Expect the same attacks from them they threw at us for not supporting the “one true conservative” that time around.
I couldn’t and won’t support a liberaltarian.
Politico is ill-informed. He is attacking RINOs, not Republicans. Eric Cantor is a liberal phony and must be primaried and defeated.
It’s never too early, but thanks anyway.
So, in your mind, suggesting that somebody could be to the right of Romney equals “apparent dislike”, and this inferred from nothing “apparent dislike” means that I wanted Obama. You need to change your name. That is really sloppy thinking by you. If you disagree, please connect the dots. I’d like to see the “logical” you try.
The tea party is a libertarian movement. Rebbelion is not exactly a conservative idea.
Everybody in the upper levels of House Republican “leadership” makes me vomit. None of them have any principles or backcone. I think that is how Boner wants it.
It's "conservatives", limited-government types that the Republican party doesn't like or want. (Remember NY-23.)
Remember also the 2012 RNC and its rule-changes, the primaries and their dirty/illegitimate manipulations, the flat-out arrogance that "republicans" must vote for the anointed candidate?
Good Cantor is nothing more than a little suck up RINO.
