You won't find Democrats participating at NRA events, but thankfully we have Republicans to go and entertain us with the machismo. McCain was actually in good form as he strutted his stuff in front of the gun lobby. McCain embraced the machines that kill 11,000 Americans every year and consistently put Giuliani down for not loving guns as much as he does.
From The Huffington Post:
WASHINGTON — Republican presidential candidate John McCain lobbed a thinly veiled attack at fellow rival Rudy Giuliani, describing the former mayor's "devious" attempt with a lawsuit "to bankrupt our great gun manufacturers."
Giuliani said he preferred to focus on the lion's share of issues on which he and the National Rifle Association agree.
Sen. McCain, R-Ariz., and the former New York mayor are among several officials speaking Friday at a National Rifle Association conference.
In his prepared speech, McCain refers to a lawsuit by Giuliani and other mayors against the gun industry, to Giuliani's shifting Second Amendment position and to Giuliani's use of the term "extremists" in relation to the NRA.
Wow, I think me and Rudy might agree on something. Too bad he called them extremists eleven years ago before he switched all of his positions to appeal to the conservative right. Back then he actually liked to prosecute gun manufacturers so that he would look tough on crime.
I wonder what those extremists think of him now.
