VIDEO: NRA convention — one last look

Posted By on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 12:41 PM

The folks at ThinkProgress interviewed many NRA members at the weekend’s big convention Uptown. The progressive website reports that among the dozens of NRA members they spoke to, “many offered reasonable positions on issues that haven’t been widely publicized — such as closing the “terror gap” gun loophole and whether gun owners should be to allowed bring weapons into bars and consume alcohol.” But, the story continues, “the vast majority of NRA members ThinkProgress spoke with echoed the misinformed and extreme anti-Obama rhetoric espoused by right-wing heroes such as Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and other Fox News hosts.”

Watch below for a compilation video of interviewed NRA members.
