National Rifle Association
NPR's Eric Westervelt reports on the efforts by the gun lobby to mobilize voters who oppose gun control. Charleton Heston is urging the three-and-a-half million members of The National Rifle Association to vote for George W. Bush and other Republican candidates. The NRA and The National Shooting Sports Foundation are concentrating on critical swing states, such as Pennsylvania and Florida. Groups that support gun control also are trying to get out the vote for their candidates.
