The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund has launched its first ad targeting anti-gun U.S. senator candidate Ted Strickland.
The 30-second ad, titled “Power and Money,” will air on cable networks statewide.
“Second Amendment supporters in Ohio deserve to know that Ted Strickland has sold out our constitutional freedoms for power and money,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF.
Ted Strickland, who was once “A+” rated and endorsed by the NRA, left office and took a job with a gun–control group that in his words “paid me more money than I’ve ever made in my life.” After receiving his payday, Strickland turned his back on law-abiding gun owners in Ohio and became an outspoken advocate for gun control.
It’s a headline we could write every day: Just change the state and the identity of the law-abiding gun owner.
On Thursday morning, four men attempted to rob an off-duty security guard, who was also a concealed-carry permit holder. Unfortunately for the robbers, they picked the wrong victim.
According to local media reports, attackers hit the security guard in the head with a baton when he didn’t hand over his belongings fast enough. The victim, who is licensed to carry a concealed weapon, shot at the attackers, hitting one and sending him to the hospital. The others all fled.
