NRA To End Run Campaign Finance Ad Rules
Following the recent court ruling limiting political broadcast advertising within 30 days of a primary and 60 days of a general election, the National Rifle Association has snubbed the ruling and is looking to buy its own broadcast outlet to skirt the ruling. The NRA is taking advantage of a loophole in the law that allows station owners to broadcast stories and commentary on issues such as, you guessed it, gun control. So, the NRA is out shopping.
"We haven't bought anything yet, but we are actively exploring the option," said Wayne LaPierre, the group's executive vice president. "It's one of the ways under the bill that we'll be allowed to speak up until Election Day."
