However, when you look at how much the McCain camp and the RNC has combined, […]

DNC Distorting McCain’s Position on Gun Shows

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in DNC, Guns and Ammo, McCain

Nice to see the Democratic National Committee is committing politics as usual, distorting the truth for political gain. The DNC wants voters to believe John McCain doesn’t support closing the gun show loophole – even though he literally wrote the legislation on it.
