    National Rifle Association Launches Second Round of Advertising in Anti-Bloomberg Campaign; Powerful Ad Features Violent Crime Survivor Calling Out Bloomberg Hypocrisy
    Posted on October 3, 2014

    Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association today launched the second round of advertising in a national campaign aimed at exposing Michael Bloomberg’s anti-freedom agenda. The second ad of the "Meet the Real Michael Bloomberg" campaign is a powerful to-camera ad titled "Kim" and features violent crime survivor Kimberly Weeks speaking directly to Michael Bloomberg. The "Kim" ad is part of a $2 million plus national advertising campaign and will air on television stations across America.
    "Kimberly has a powerful personal message that effectively exposes the lies and hypocrisy of Bloomberg's $50 million campaign aimed at taking away Americans' Second Amendment rights," said NRA spokesman Jennifer Baker. "To Michael Bloomberg this may be just a pet project to satisfy his enormous ego and control the lives of everyone around him, but to ordinary American citizens it has a very dangerous impact."
    As a college student, Kimberly was brutally attacked in her apartment. She was overpowered and defenseless against her attacker. After her horrific experience, Kimberly got her concealed carry permit for self defense. When Kimberly was assaulted, she had to plead with her attacker to spare her life during her harrowing ordeal. Later, when testifying before the Colorado legislature, she pled with lawmakers, who were considering legislation to ban concealed carry on college campuses, not to strip her of the right to carry on her college campus. She didn’t want to be left defenseless again. In this powerful NRA ad, Kimberly stands up to Michael Bloomberg and his gun control efforts. She calls out Michael Bloomberg on his hypocrisy and says, “Mr. Bloomberg you do not have the right to tell me how to defend myself."
    "The men and women of the NRA will not allow Michael Bloomberg to use lies and millions of dollars in deceptive advertising to impose his extreme anti-freedom agenda on the American people. Our effort will expose Bloomberg as an arrogant hypocrite who wants to take away our rights. In this ad we are giving a voice to those who will be harmed by his agenda," concluded Baker.

    Most of their effort was spent getting control of the Senate and holding the House and they did a GREAT job at doing that. They don't have resources to fight the thousands of little battles and they expect the state groups to do most of that. They come in when they can fight in the courts. Now if everyone in the states all donated, they would have the resources and manpower, but there are 50 states and lord knows how many municipalities that push the anti crap. The NRA did its Job well this election. I wish people could see that. They treat the NRA like the left treats welfare and expects it to carry the load, and they can't, but they most likely will come in now and help with the court challenge to overturn it. If the groups actually let them and ask them to help.
    If people that are supposed to be pro gun Spit on them and they will probably go where they are appreciated.
    I would too.

    Yes it would have been nice that they fought the battle there, but it would also be nice if more gun owners would have got out to vote. There were 2/3 rds of the citizens that sat on their laurels and did not vote in Washington. Just motivating them could have changed the outcome, and that should have been every ones goal up there. Get out the vote.
    The NRA didn't do that. the people did that to themselves.

    This is exactly the kind of thing we need to be doing on a much bigger level. From Obama on down the line, the anti-gun folks love love love to trot out the 'victims' of gun crime, thus winning the ever-bleeding hearts of the anti-gun voters. We need to use the same tactic. With SO MANY stories of lives saved by guns, we should have no shortage of faces and names to put out there looking for that same sympathy vote. Show the parents who saved their children. Show the children who defended themselves against an intruder. Show co-workers, neighbors and even strangers who saved lives because they had a gun. Our best hope is to turn their tactics against them. If we can win the same sympathy, then it will have to come down to facts, and on that level, they simply can't win.
