There are some who say the gun-rights lobby has never been stronger, according to a CNN report getting a lot of buzz ahead of today's opening of the annual NRA convention in Charlotte.
Reporter Carol Costello talks with rocker and NRA board member Ted Nugent, who says the NRA has gun-control advocates on the run – with President Barack Obama leading the pack.
“He’s scared,” Nugent says. “We know that President Obama is against the NRA, but he's not going to speak about that, because it would be political suicide, like for those who have stood up in the past.”
Some gun-control advocates feel betrayed that Obama isn’t fighting harder for gun control, Costello says. He’s signed bills that allow guns in national parks and on Amtrak trains – bills the NRA loves. Some agree with Nugent that politicians — who are just as likely to be photographed posing with guns as posing with babies — may be ducking the issue.
