So says the Daily Beast in its listing of the top 20 gun nuts in Congress. Here’s the Beast’s entry on Boozman:
Gun Owners of America: A+
Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence: 0 out of 100
Press mentions: 139
In his words: “Attempts to undermine your Second Amendment rights come from every angle, including efforts to strip you of your legal rights to carry. I authored the ’Secure Access to Firearms Enhancement (SAFE) Act,’ in an effort to strengthen concealed carry laws allowing law-abiding citizens who can legally carry in their home state to carry all across the country
I’m feeling SAFEr already. Especially since the Daily Beast also declares that Arkansas is No. 4 on the gun deaths list, with 15.1 deaths per 100,000, as our friend elwood pointed out the other day.
No. 1 on the packing Congressmen list, by the way: Oklahoma’s Tom Coburn.
