The National Rifle Association has really been nailing it with their television ads. From their “Freedom’s Safest Place” spots to their latest one below, we like what they are doing. This demonstrates why, although very important, joining the NRA isn’t enough; it is also important to support the NRA-PVF (Political Victory Fund) to make ads like this possible since general funds and membership dues can not be used for lobbying or political purposes.
She’s one of the wealthiest women in politics. Combined income: $30 million. Tours the world in private jets. Protected by armed guards for 30 years. But she doesn’t believe in your right to keep a gun at home for self-defense. She’s an out-of-touch hypocrite. And she’d leave you defenseless.
The National Rifle Association aired its first political ad of the 2016 presidential campaign season during Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate. The 30-second spot targeted gun control advocate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the candidates whom he may back.
The NRA says that this ad is the first step in a multi-phased effort to remind voters of Bloomberg’s disdain for freedom and his agenda to taking away our Second Amendment rights. The gun rights organization is expected to spend around $1 million on the ad, which will run on Fox News, CNN and on local television in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada. All three are home to early presidential primaries or caucuses. The ad will also appear digitally in those states as well as South Carolina – another early primary state.
Previous political efforts by the NRA’s political arms (and, by extension, their many members at the polls) have been largely successful and they hope to see more success in defeating anti-gun candidates in the 2016 elections.
