First they came out for RINO candidates in Mississippi, Idaho, Kentucky and Virginia. Now they are backing a Republican primary candidate who is openly anti-gun.
Jack Kingston, the NRA-backed candidate in Georgia’s Senate runoff, came out for gun control in 2013 when he said that lawmakers should “put guns on the table, also put video games on the table, put mental health on the table.”
Kingston also told a TV station that gun laws should be dictated not by the Constitution but by academic research. “Let’s let the data lead rather than our political opinions,” he said.
Kingston’s record on non-gun issues isn’t any better. He has been called the “king of earmarks” for creating more earmarks than any other Georgia legislator, he voted to raise the debt ceiling, and he was one of the first Republicans to surrender on Obamacare.
Yet the NRA has endorsed him and given him an A+ rating.
The NRA’s leaders will do anything to protect GOP establishment – even if it means selling out gun rights, conservatives and their dues-paying members.
