NRA spends nearly $55K on mailers targeting Doug Jones

Source: The Hill




BY OLIVIA BEAVERS - 12/07/17 06:16 PM EST

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is shelling out thousands of dollars going after Democratic candidate Doug Jones in the final days of the Alabama Senate race.

The powerful pro-gun lobbying group spent nearly $55,000 paying for mailers on Tuesday that take aim at Jones, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Despite the anti-Jones campaign, the NRA has not formally endorsed any candidate in the race ahead of the Tuesday special election.

Jones is facing off against GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has come under fire after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct.

4. I recommend sending a donation to Doug Jones campaign

It doesn't have to be a big one; small donations add up. You can donate through Doug's website or the Actblue Page for Doug.

6. Not even the right pistol...

If you're going to cosplay as a cowboy, have a darn Colt-clone single-action revolver, not a hammerless snubbie.

That's like the equivalent of dressing up like a Klingon and carrying a lightsaber...

7. The NRA is a terrorist organization.

They do not support anything that is good or decent. They support murder and profit. Now they support pedophilia.
