NEWTOWN, Conn.—In response to New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's filing of a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission yesterday, indicating that he would enter the 2008 presidential race as a Republican, the firearms industry's trade association, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), reminded America's sportsmen and gun-enthusiasts of the former mayor's record of hostility toward firearms and gun-owners.
"Recent remarks indicate the mayor is attempting to camouflage his record on guns – a political maneuver now common for politicians seeking national office," said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel.

This is gonna hurt...
I think we are going to see more of this, from the NRA and other conservative groups. Mayor Giuliani was wonderful after Sept. 11, but is that enough to make him President? New Yorkers love him but how will the rest of America feel when they learn his liberal ideals? Going to be tough to overcome the Anti-Gun; Pro-Abortion; Pro-Illegal Alien record, why vote Republican when you can have all that and more in the Democrats?
