NRA ranks cheer Chaney
VP attacks Kerry's gun rights record

By BOB DART
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 04/18/04


PITTSBURGH Unloading on John Kerry, Vice President Dick Cheney enlisted an eager army of gun owners Saturday night in the battle to re-elect President Bush.

Chanting "four more years," about 4,000 members of the National Rifle Association enthusiastically cheered Cheney during his keynote address to their national convention.

I guess the only requirement for a newspaper these days is as a whore, not literacy.

1. They probably got him mixed up with Lon Chaney.
Which is a mistake-Dick Cheney is at least a million times scarier than any creep or creature that Lon Chaney played.

2. So which one of these papers screwed this up?
I'm really hanging my head now. I was born in Pgh...lived there for 40 years, and now live in Ga. So I'm ashamed of both Pgh, and the AJC!

6. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Editors usually write the headlines. (That's one of the reasons they're even more spun than the articles.)

3. Apparently they haven't read sections of Patriot Act 2
that would deny them their guns. Do these idiots really think these control freaks would allow them to keep their guns once they obtained greater controls here?

4. Lon, Dick, whatever
