Re:NRA

Gearing up for the NRA tomorrow, team Rudy has a press release on his position on guns. In short: 1) He was tough on crime and did it by punishing criminals who used guns; 2) He is promising more of the same as President; 3) He wants to enforce laws on the books and not pass more gun laws; 4) He supports the Parker decision finding an individual right to gun ownership and 5) Lots of "A" NRA rated legislators support him. This seems the best tactic under the circumstances. He's not going to get the NRA endorsement but he is hoping to make the point that they(both the NRA officially and individual voters who care about the Second Amendment) don't have to fear him. It will be interesting to see how Romney handles his own past record.
