Here is the ad found this afternoon on the top of the Drudge Report (it rotates with other ads, and you may or may not see it). Clicking through brings you to the National Association for Gun Rights' petition calling on Sens. McCain and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) to "join... the filibuster of ANY and ALL gun control legislation." The complete letter is reproduced below the break.
DAVID GREGORY: Finally-- Senator-- we're going to talk to Mark Kelly in just a moment, Gabby Gifford's hub-- husband, of course. Are you prepared at least to support universal background checks, if that's all that comes outta this, would you be support-- prepared to support that?JOHN MCCAIN: There's-- some Senators, bipartisan again-- Senator Coburn and Senator Manchin and some others who are working on a package that I think that most of us will be able to support. I applaud their efforts and obviously we want to do everything we can to prevent guns from falling into the hands of people who are mentally unbalanced or criminals.
