One can expect an all out vicious battle to erupt on the Senate floor starting today as the confirmation hearings for Neil Gorsuch begin. Democrats have vowed to block the confirmation using whatever underhanded tactics they can, including a filibuster. The NRA has announced that they will be spending nearly $1 million for an ad campaign to promote the confirmation of Gorsuch. The question is, will it work?
The National Rifle Association’s Freedom Action Fund launched a nearly million-dollar national ad campaign on Tuesday ahead of the Senate hearings on Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
“Your right to keep a gun in your home for self defense survived at the U.S. Supreme Court by only ONE VOTE,” the ad’s description warned.
“Four Supreme Court justices believe you have the right to defend yourselves with a gun. Four do not,” the ad’s narrator said. “The men and women of the NRA will not let anti-gun elites strip away our rights or our freedom.”
