PAC Behind GOP Candidate for Gabby Giffords Seat Shows Gun in Email Appeal
NPR ^ | 7 June 2012 | Arnie Siepel

Posted on 06/08/2012 6:01:06 PM PDT by smokingfrog

— Updated at 12:46 pm ET with a statement from Jesse Kelly's campaign. See end of post. —

A PAC supporting Jesse Kelly, a former Marine running to replace Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in a special election on Tuesday, is using an image Kelly's campaign has avoided thus far — the candidate holding a gun.

Kelly, a Republican, ran against Giffords, a Democrat, in 2010. Giffords resigned in January, just over a year after a shooting spree left six dead and the congresswoman critically wounded. Kelly's opponent this time is former Giffords aide Ron Barber, who was shot twice during the 2011 rampage.

Giffords will appear at a fundraiser for Barber on Saturday, prompting the Move America Forward Freedom PAC to put out a call for donations on Thursday morning.

The PAC supports former members of the military who are seeking office. They included an image from Kelly's 2010 campaign in which he is holding an assault rifle, along with the phrase "Send a warrior to Congress."

The guy is a former Marine. Seems to me it wouldn’t be too hard to find a photo of the guy holding a weapon.

And this has the hoplophobes at NPR all in a twist? Firearms in AZ is as natural as breathing there. The NPR morons need to get out of DC more and see the real world they call “flyover country”.

Heck, I remember when the commies put up their posters around NYC they would usually have images of arms raised holding rifles. More leftist hypocrisy.

I buy gold and silver for security.
I back that up by weighing the gold and silver, adding that amount up, double it and then invest in lead.

And If they try to make it an issue, Kelly can use the same picture and say, “If I or another who legally carries, had been there, lives may have been saved and Gabby might still be whole.”
