McConnell Gets Hit With Gun Reform Ad Campaign

A group called the Progressive Change Campaign Committee is hitting Mitch McConnell this morning with a new ad campaign in both Kentucky and Washington, D.C. It features Kentuckian Rodney Kendrick of Berea and is, well, just watch:




The initial advertising buy is $27,700 and it’ll appear on MSNBC, CNN and ESPN in Louisville and LExington.

They’ve also launched a website called GunOwnersForReform.com and have some new polling data from PPP:

Do you support or oppose criminal background checks to keep guns out of the wrong hands?
Support ………………………………………………….. 82%
Oppose ………………………………………………….. 13%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 5%
(Asked of 663 Kentucky likely voters, MOE+/-3.8%:)

Do you support or oppose banning assault weapons?
Support ………………………………………………….. 50%
Oppose ………………………………………………….. 42%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 8%
(Asked of 712 Kentucky likely voters, MOE +/-3.7%:)

Are you a gun owner?
Yes………………………………………………………… 64%
No …………………………………………………………. 36%
(Asked of 1,375 Kentucky likely KY voters, MOE +/-2.6%)

Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

  1. Background checks will keep guns out of the wrong hands? I am all for a debate but, are people dumb enough to think this will actually keep guns “out of the wrong hands.” As Jake would say, HEAD-DESK.

  2. We should be doing everything we can to keep assault weapons out of the wrong hands. NOTHING will prevent all shootings but we should try our best. Car accidents still kill people, despite safety efforts to make cars as safe as possible. Should we just take air bags out of cars because it doesn’t work?
