If this were done by the RNC it would be a decent ad. For NRA, not so much.
First, it does not touch upon gun rights at all. Second, NRA is already widely seen as being too tight with the Republicans. Bringing up a non-gun issue reinforces that.
The Donald’s support for 2A is questionable at best so it is understandable that NRA can’t highlight that. However, they could at least try to make the argument that he would make better judicial picks or sign the reciprocity bill.

Because the primary is set for next Tuesday, Pidot’s campaign will have to go to court to have it pushed back in order to ensure his name appears on the ballots. I don’t see why it could not be rescheduled for September like it used to be.
This presents a good opportunity to stick it to Martins for voting for the SAFE Act.
… “I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.” …
That statement makes the case for term limits.

This is not the end of the issue. Some people think that Heller and McDonald settled the gun control debate when in fact they were more of a starting point. We need to look at things from a long term perspective. It took nearly 40 years for NRA and others to set up a legal framework which got us Heller. It is entirely possible that it will take a couple of decades worth of court decisions and legal scholarship before the next right case makes it to them.
I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.
