Hillary's just fine with your past NRA support so long as you support her

Bernie Sanders has a "D-" rating from the NRA, but that doesn't matter because he stands between Shameless Hillary and the Democratic nomination for president.

Sen. Harry Reid, Nevada
has had an NRA "B" rating and received lots of NRA money in the past

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, New York
had an NRA "A" rating as US House rep, before taking Hillary's old Senate seat

Gov. Peter Shumlin, Vermont
has had an "A+" rating from the NRA

Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky
Remember her? She ran against Mitch McConnell for Senate in 2014. She's good friends with Hillary & Bill, who strongly supported her in the Democratic primary and in the general election.

2. I don't like guns or her

 

But she just uses people who are too dumb to see what she's doing. We see it here all the time. It's a shame.

4. If the MIC gave ratings she'd get an A+ and gold star.

7. It's all just political stunt. Alison Grimes went as far as to oppose the assault weapons ban

 

Same background-check standards at gun store versus gun show

Grimes mentioned her longstanding invitation to meet McConnell at a gun range, before saying she opposes banning assault weapons but is open to considering changes to how guns are purchased at gun shows. "You shouldn't have different standards when you go to a gun store versus a gun show," Grimes said.

Grimes said she is a "big supporter" of the 2nd Amendment and does not believe that banning weapons "is the way to actually reduce the violence that we see here in the US." Instead, she said, the government should work harder "to make sure we educate people and that we enforce the law."

When the Herald-Leader submitted a questionnaire to the Senate campaigns in May, Grimes responded to a question about requiring background checks at gun shows by saying that she supports "reasonable background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill." She said at the time, "However, these efforts should not infringe upon the right of law-abiding Americans to possess firearms."

Proud of long-held sporting & hunting traditions

Today Alison Lundergan Grimes released the following statement: "As an NRA member, my strong support for the Second Amendment is unquestioned. I am proud of Kentucky's long-held gun ownership, sporting and hunting traditions. It is unfortunate that Senator McConnell is desperate to mislead Kentucky voters about my strong support for the Second Amendment.

As an NRA member, my strong support for the Second Amendment is unquestioned. I am proud of Kentucky's long-held gun ownership, sporting and hunting traditions. It is unfortunate that Senator McConnell is desperate to mislead Kentucky voters about my strong support for the Second Amendment. In the Senate, I will protect my fellow Kentuckians' right to keep and bear arms. Whenever he's not busy pandering to Washington lobbyists, I welcome Senator McConnell to come shoot with me at the range any

8. Two thoughts

 

First, Hillary clearly will take whatever position is most advantageous to her, regardless of whether it conflicts with a position she took yesterday. Never seen anyone who is so malleable. Second, see number one above.

10. Blanche Lincoln voted for gun manufacturers' immunity, yet Hillary happily accepted

Blanche's endorsement in 2008.

I am honored to have the support of Senator Lincoln, who has been a longtime champion for children and families.... When we take back the office on January 2009, we’re going to roll up our sleeves and solve the problems that our nation faces. I look forward to working with leaders like Senator Lincoln to get our country back on track and deliver the change our country needs.

And when Blanche was running for re-election to the Senate in 2010, Bill Clinton told Arkansans how critical it was that they make sure Blanche would keep her job (they didn't).
