That Dog Won't Hunt

John Kerry made a bid for support from gun owners and hunters today in Ohio. Kerry posed near Youngstown with a shotgun, camouflage clothing, and four dead geese, one of which he claims to have shot. Was this the shotgun he claimed to own in Boston, or the one he received (possibly illegally) as a gift recently?

The NRA's response was an ad in a local paper that read "If John Kerry thinks the Second Amendment is about photo ops, he's Daffy." A Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) spokesman called Kerry's effort to portray himself as a devoted hunter "a carefully choreographed smoke screen." He added, "Kerry put on his [...] camouflage not to fool the geese, but to fool hunters." Rush Limbaugh's response was about "Swift Air Geese for Truth."

Kerry's record on gun control issues has been consistently for restrictions, bans, and additional licenses. This makes him a hunting supporter? To quote another CCRKAB spokesman, "Don't let Kerry do to you what he just did to that goose."
