I see the problem with letting him address an NRA convention is that it will seem to other politicians that you can ignore us, scorn us, malign us at will, advocate gun control and say the second amendment is a relic, that its dead letter and so forth...
but when you need our votes, we are willing to forgive you.
If you are a politician and want to take a stand for gun control, that's fine.
But once you start down the left-handed path and sell your soul to the liberals, we aren't going to forgive easily or ever forget.
The NRA should have spoken and told him, and every other politician, if you declare yourself our enemy and if you behave like one, you are not welcome into our house.
He can support the Right to Keep and Bear Arms all he wants to...but until we see some action, its all talk.
He doesn't support us.
He is just aware he needs us and has slightly better speech-writers than Kerry (the deer hunter with his trusty shotgun) did.
I know what I need to know about Rudy.
Regardless of his words, I will not vote for him even if that means I don't vote.
Politicians beware - If you want our votes, you can't just make a speech. You need to earn them.
