The Arkansas News Bureau reports on yesterday's dust-up in the attorney general's race, which began when Republican candidate Gunner DeLay accused his Democratic counterpart, Dustin McDaniel, of being soft on protecting the rights of gun owners.
Dustin McDaniel "needs to come clean" on the role he played in a lawsuit filed against a Remington Arms and others in the wake of the 1998 Jonesboro school shootings, DeLay said. ...
"For Mr. DeLay to carry on like this ... frankly Gunner just can't shoot straight," McDaniel said when asked about DeLay's comments.
"I am pro-second amendment, and my idea of gun control is using both hands to aim," he said.
"I have an A rating from the National Rifle Association, I am a member of the NRA and a gun owner," McDaniel said. "If he is going to continue to try and distort my record, that's the act of desperation."
