Russ Feingold – 2nd amendment advocate?

by thoughtfulconservative

That’s right. Look at how this Craig Gilbert article in Sunday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel starts:

You won’t find too many Democrats these days attacking their conservative opponents for being soft on gun rights.

But that’s exactly what Sen. Russ Feingold did last week in a radio ad, trading fire with GOP challenger Ron Johnson over who’s a better friend of the Second Amendment.

“I have been one of the true leaders in fighting for a greater right to bear arms,” Feingold said in an interview last week.

My conservative friends are guffawing about now, and although Feingold doesn’t get good marks from the NRA, neither does he seem to get good marks from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

It seems mixed enough. he even seems to support concealed carry.

Not good enough for either side.

A maverick?

At least on guns.

Look, I’ll never vote for Feingold.

But he does seem to be a moderate on gun control.

A moderate? A DINO?

Nahhh.
