Asa Hutchinson on the NRA speakers platform today

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 9:08 AM


Good to be associated with the extremists of the NRA?

In Arkansas Republican circles, the answer is a big ja wohl!

Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson is front and center in a lineup of speakers today at the NRA "leadership forum" in Houston that only an assault rifle-packing extremist could give unconditional love.

The NRA convention is expected to draw 70,000 for a celebration of the gun lobby's recent defeat of modest gun legislation. There'll surely be plenty of sneers for the call from Gabby Gifford's husband for moderation in NRA leadership.

Didn't Asa proclaim his independence the other day in releasing the NRA-commissioned study calling for putting more guns in school to combat the ill effects of guns in school?

How nutty is this assembly going to be? Check this out.
