NRA Spends $466K on Ads on McAuliffe's War on Law-Abiding Gun Owners

In an October report of its September receipts, the National Rifle Association of America Political Victory Fund (NRA PAC) showed that it spent $466,273 to highlight VA gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s (D) war on law-abiding gun owners. 

As Breitbart News reported on September 23, McAuliffe plans to implement Colorado-style gun control measures if elected to be Virginia’s governor. These will include–but will not be limited to–a ban on “high capacity magazines,” the implementation of universal background checks, and a one-gun-a-month purchasing limit.

If McAuliffe is elected and gets his way on universal background checks, there will be no more private sales in Virginia; no more selling a gun to a neighbor, a co-worker, or a friend without asking the government’s permission via a background check. This will give the government precise knowledge of every gun sale in the state and make it possible for them to enforce a one-gun-a-month purchasing limit.

Of course, the “high capacity” magazine ban and the one-gun-a-month purchasing limit will only apply to law-abiding citizens. Criminals will still have “high capacity” magazines and will get all the guns they want because do not obey laws, nor do they buy their guns at a gun store or sporting goods chain where a purchasing limit will be enforced.

According to Roll Call, the NRA PAC spent $406,627 on television ads, $35,838 on internet ads, and $23,808 on printing, postage, and email alerts.
