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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
