New York Times Tries To Discredit NRA On Bruce Braley’s Gun Control Stance

On October 21, The New York Times charged the NRA of accusing “guilt by association” with an ad suggesting Senate candidate Bruce Braley (D-IA) is a gun control supporter in line with Michael Bloomberg.

To do this the Times highlighted part of the ad where a photo of Braley is pasted beside a photo of Bloomberg at a speaking event, then said, “The issue is not a minor one for Mr. Braley, who… has said he has never met Mr. Bloomberg.”

The Times failed to note that the NRA ad never claims that Braley met Bloomberg. But the ad does claim Braley and Bloomberg are on the same page on gun control, and that the two attended one of Bloomberg’s political events together. The NRA claim that Braley and Bloomberg attended the event is substantiated by a link on Braley’s website which says he spoke at a “No Labels” function on December 13, 2010 and was “joined” by Bloomberg and other left-leaning politicians.

Braley’s own statements show that he is in line with the kind of gun control which Bloomberg supports, with one exception—Braley didn’t think the failed Senate gun control bill was harsh enough on gun companies.
