The rumored NRA endorsement of John McCain has indeed happened. This is astounding. McCain has a long history of being squishy soft on Second Amendment issues. This is a blatant thumb in the eye of the NRA’sÂ own Board member Bob Barr.
The NRA rates Barr, one of their own board members, with an A+ rating. McCain has earned a C+ rating by the same organization.
McCainâ€™s disdain of the Second Amendment has earned the ire of virtually every gun rights organization in the country.
This is clearly a case of the NRA putting party and pragmatic politics above principle.
