NRA Political Victory Fund

44 sec. TV ad run
starting approx. Sept. 22, 2008.

[Music, many SFX throughout] Man (Karl Rusch, Virginia): I've gotta tell you.  With the high cost of gas and just about everything else, we're all feeling pinched.

And now I learned that Barack Obama supports a huge new tax on my guns and ammo.

And that he voted to ban virtually all deer hunting ammunition.

Where's this guy from?

He's probably never been hunting a day in his life.

But it's not just new taxes that Barack Obama wants.

If you can believe it he also supports a ban on the shotguns and rifles most of us use for hunting.

No politician is going to take away my guns and ammo. 

You don't have to be bitter to know Barack Obama isn't the kind of change we need.

On November 4th defend freedom, defeat Obama.

Notes: The Obama campaign sent a letter asking stations to "immediately cease airing this advertisement," terming it "false, misleading and deceptive."  Cleta Mitchell of Foley & Lardner LLP, counsel to the NRA, responded with a letter to station managers asking them to "disregard the shamefully false assertions from the Obama campaign and its attorneys regarding the NRA-PVF ads and that the ads run in accordance with the purchase(s) made by NRA-PVF in the media buy."
