Under the gun

A Sept. 5 press release announced that the group Gun Owners of America is joining conservative political action committee Constitutional Rights PAC as an official partner for something they’re calling the “Guns and God Campaign.”

According to the press release, on Sept. 14 the groups are “encouraging gun owners to turn out on Guns and God Appreciation Day at state capitals, and gun shows, gun shops and make sure you shoot off a few rounds at your local gun range in support of the Second Amendment.”

The website for the campaign compares it to 2013’s Gun Appreciation Day but says, “The difference this time is we are asking everyone to be prayerful about returning our nation to God as the only solution to the hatred and mass murder plaguing our blessed country.”
