Letter: Hunters, gun owners: Listen up

The non-stop, despicable attack ads on the radio against 8th Congressional District Congressman Chip Cravaack is proof of the far left's desperation to regain the seat held by ultra-liberal Jim Oberstar for 36 years.

If you buy into the smoke and mirrors promoting Chip's opponent Rick Nolan, a political has-been, this is what you are going to get: Rick Nolan supports the reenacting of the failed 1994 federal ban on semi-automatic firearms as well as banning firearms based on bore size; AND Rick Nolan supports a ban on ammunition commonly owned and used by hunters and sportsmen; AND Rick Nolan supports the ATF circumventing the will of Congress by centralizing records of thousand of Americans long gun purchases; AND Rick Nolan also supports mandatory government issued licenses  or permits for law-abiding citizens to buy or possess a firearm. All these positions has earned Rick Nolan an "F" rating by the NRA. On the contrary, Chip Cravaack has earned an "A" rating by the NRA by working to protect your Second Amendment Rights and hunting heritage. Hunters and gun owners, please vote for Chip Cravaack to protect your Second Amendment Rights on Nov. 6, 2012.
