NASHVILLE, Tenn.—While personal injury lawyer and Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Gordon Ball claims he never received a National Rifle Association survey, the NRA points out that’s just not true. The Second Amendment rights organization explained to the Memphis Commercial Appeal the NRA sent the survey to Ball as they do for all candidates.
From the CA report:
NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said the organization mailed its survey to Ball at the Knoxville address listed on his candidate registration form. ‘He never returned the questionnaire. We changed his grade from a question mark to an ‘F’ based on an interview he did. Bottom line is he’s anti-gun, and we’ll make sure every gun owner in Tennessee knows it.’
In response to Gordon Ball’s lame attempt at crafting an excuse reminiscent of a 6th grader, Tennessee Republican Party Chairman Chris Devaney stated, “Gordon Ball blaming the NRA for his own dismal record and F-rating on Second Amendment rights may be the most transparent evidence yet of how far this slick personal injury lawyer will go to distract Tennesseans from the fact that he’d be one more vote for Barack Obama’s anti-gun agenda. The NRA says it sent Ball its questionnaire. Ball should be forthright with Tennesseans about how he earned his F, instead of claiming that the dog ate his homework.”
- The TNGOP released ObamaBallAgenda.com to expose Gordon Ball as another vote for Barack Obama’s liberal agenda.
- The TNGOP released a web ad exposing Ball’s real record as one more vote for the Obama agenda.
- Gordon Ball is endorsed by AFL-CIO, and called for another vote for Big Labor at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant after workers rejected unionization.
- While he says he’d defend our 2nd Amendment rights, Gordon Ball just received an “F-rating” from the NRA due to his support of universal background checks on law-abiding citizens and further gun restrictions.
