This from the NRA-PVF web site:
Fairfax, VA. – The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Executive Vice President, Wayne LaPierre, and NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) Chairman Chris W. Cox are traveling to Pittsburgh, Pa., Springfield, Mo., Colorado Springs, Colo. and Reno, Nev. today for a series of press conferences endorsing Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin for President and Vice President respectively in the November 4 election.
“John McCain has more than two decades of pro-gun and pro-hunting votes in Congress. He has stood time and again to preserve our Second Amendment freedom and our rich hunting heritage,” said LaPierre. “Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin have earned the NRA-PVF’s endorsement and we will encourage gun owners, hunters and anyone who values freedom to vote McCain-Palin on November 4.”
“NRA members and gun owners will not allow Barack Obama to hide his radical record of opposition to our constitutional rights,” said Cox. “Obama has voted to make self-defense with a firearm in the home illegal, has voted to ban the most commonly owned hunting shotguns, has voted to ban commonly owned hunting ammunition, and has supported a 500% tax increase on guns and ammunition. We will remind voters every single time he pretends that his anti-gun record doesn’t exist.”
John McCain voted for the landmark Firearms Owners Protection Act and the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, opposed the failed Clinton Gun Ban, and voted against mandatory waiting periods, national gun registration, and bans on hunting ammunition. He also signed the historic congressional amicus brief in the case of Heller v. District of Columbia, holding that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms — a brief that Senator Obama refused to sign.
Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is a hunter, gun owner and NRA Life Member. Gov. Palin has been a consistent and outspoken supporter of the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen.

NRO’s Jim Geraghty has a quick post about the event here.  Reports put the crowd at 10,000 – 20,000.  This may be based on tickets given away to the event but it continues a trend began on August 29th when McCain announced the choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate.

You have probably heard that pro-gun Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin and Presidential Candidate John McCain are coming to Virginia tomorrow for a campaign rally. While McCain is not perfect on our issue, he is head and shoulders above Senator Barrack Obama and the fact that he chose such a pro-gun running mate makes him stronger.
Due to an overwhelming response from Virginia voters, the rally has been moved outdoors to Van Dyke Park, next to Fairfax High School in Fairfax City, Virginia. If you are interested in tickets to this event to have a chance to see this dynamic candidate, you can still obtain tickets online or by visiting one of the Virginia Victory offices today until 9:00 p.m. EDT.

Boy, did Governor Sarah Palin really hit it out of the ball park last night. I especially liked her talking about her small town roots and her reference to Obama’s “bitter gun owners” comment. There was much to like in the speech however.

The pro-rights community has been excited about this pick since it was announced and many now have enthusiasm where before they were going to vote for McCain simply because Obama is so bad on our issue.

One such person is David Petzal over at The Gun Nut. On Friday after the pick he wrote, “I know very few people, including Republicans, who are enthusiastic about John McCain. He seems to be tolerated only as an alternative to Obama, who is intolerable to gun owners. There I was, prepared to hold back my rising gorge and vote for Old John M. …, and here he comes up with someone that I can actually be enthusiastic about from any number of standpoints, never mind guns and hunting.”

On on the subject of her hunting prowess, Petzal also posted on just what it takes to turn a moose into “moose burgers.”  I’ve never hunted moose (but it is on the list of hunts I hope to take before I leave this world) but could only imagine what it would take because it’s not like you just hike back a little ways into the woods to your tree stand and then drag out your kill after the hunt as I do with whitetail deer.  Petzal says shooting it is the easy part, the field-dressing “takes three people: one to do the actual hacking and slashing, one to push, shove, and hold legs, and one to stand there with a serious rifle waiting for a bear to show up. Packing it out, which takes yet another two people unless one of you is Clark Kent.”

Makes me like Palin even more.
