Moveon.org plans on running a series of ads targeting the NRA and Sen Rob Portman for his support of the NRA and their support of him:
The progressive political group Moveon.org announced plans Friday to run the first in a series of television ads targeting the National Rifle Association and elected officials who receive campaign contributions from the NRA.
The first of the ads will air on national cable for a week beginning this weekend. It features gun owner and Moveon.org member Jerry Thompson, an Ohio resident.
"I'm a gun owner and a proud defender of the Second Amendment," Thompson says into the camera. "But after the Newtown massacre, and the NRA's disgusting response, I've had enough."
Thompson says he wants Congress to know, "the NRA doesn't speak for me, and it doesn't speak for the vast majority of Americans. So stop taking their money."
In Ohio, where Moveon.org has more than than 250,000 members, the group plans to run an ad specially tailored to put pressure on Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, considered a potential GOP backer of gun control legislation currently pending in the Senate.Read the whole story HERE and view a related video below:
Here is Rob Portman's video message to the NRA Convention back in 2011:
I never realized Portman was an avid hunter and big supporter of the NRA and our 2nd Amendment rights. I had like him before...now I liked him even more.
