Posted on 02/27/2013 11:34:28 AM PST by Republican Wildcat
A liberal group is again challenging U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnells position on gun control in a commercial that began running Monday in Kentucky and Washington in advance of the Senates next hearing on guns.
The group Progressive Change Campaign Committee is spending $100,000 to run the ad for at least a week. It began airing Monday in Louisville, Lexington, Bowling Green and Paducah markets plus Washington, D.C., as the Senates Judiciary Committee prepares for a hearing Wednesday on the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013.
It features Edmonson County resident Gary Nutt telling viewers that, as a hunter, he doesnt see the point of owning semi-automatic assault weapons that can fire dozens of rounds quickly without needing a reload.
I am a Vietnam Vet and a hunter. I only shot my rifle one time this last season. One shot, one deer, he says in the ad. But Id be a pretty bad hunter if I needed an assault rifle to shoot that buck.
Watch it here:
Nutt then criticizes McConnell the Senate Republican leader for opposing an assault weapons ban after taking $198,500 from the NRA and gun makers.
Senator, whose side are you on? Nutt asks to end the ad.
Nutt is among 20,000 gun owners who signed an online petition the Progressive Change Campaign Committee launched in support of President Barack Obamas gun control proposal that includes an assault weapons ban and a limit on high-capacity magazines.
McConnell, though, has been consistently opposed to assault weapons ban even before receiving a campaign donation from the NRA.

Gary Nutt seems to be quite the Constitutional Scholar! :/
It’s a good thing the continued existence of our constitutional rights don’t rely on a nutt!
Waste your money, gun-control morons! 20,000 signed an on-line prtition? Big deal. Over 100,000 signed a petition to deport Piers Moron, and he’s still here.
These are the people who own your body through 0bamaCare now.
What could possibly go wrong?
I don't hunt either but I do own a Tyranny Response Rifle.
You know, if conservatives were more committed, we’d have our own well-funded PACS with which to beat the Libs senseless all year long. Nah. That would require organization and commitment. Silly me.
And they got some guy named NUTT to shill for them? I thought Republicans are the stupid party.
PAC's are worthless. We need a broadcast network. The nightly broadcast news reaches an audience of 22m people. On a good day, Fox gets 6m.
Actually, the number of 6m for Fox I stated earlier was wrong. It’s actually 2m, compared to 22m for the broadcast networks. The difference is literally an order of magnitude.
Okay. You buy NBC and I’ll put up $10 to help pay you back.
I'd have bought NBC with my lunch money, but Comcast beat me to the punch. Better luck next time. Heck, it only cost $17b - I could have swung it by brown bagging a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
On a more serious note, though, it would be nice if Fox brought its format over to the broadcast channels it currently syndicates.
