‘Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes invited Sen.
Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to go shooting with her on
Friday, after the Senate minority leader launched a
coalition of gun rights supporters’.

‘McConnell, who faces an election challenge from
Lundergan Grimes, appeared at an event Friday
afternoon launching the “Sportsmen for Team Mitch”
coalition, where the NRA presented him a “Defender
of Freedom” award’.

‘The NRA indicated on Friday it plans to engage
heavily in the race on behalf of McConnell, who is
also competing against a GOP primary opponent’.

‘But Lundergan Grimes touted her own support for
gun rights in a statement that challenged McConnell
to hit the gun range with her and included a photo
of her shooting a rifle. The invitation and the
picture made waves online’.

“As an NRA member, my strong support for the Second
Amendment is unquestioned. I am proud of Kentucky’s
long-held gun ownership, sporting and hunting
traditions,” she said’.

“In the Senate, I will protect my fellow
Kentuckians’ right to keep and bear arms. Whenever
he’s not busy pandering to Washington lobbyists, I
welcome Senator McConnell to come shoot with me at
the range any day,” she added’.

‘In the photo, Lundergan Grimes appears in the
backyard of her family’s farm in Maysville, Ky.,
shooting a rifle without eye or ear protection.
That drew criticism from Republicans on Twitter,
who suggested the picture was evidence she’s out of
touch with Kentuckians’.

‘Conservative commentator Dana Loesch tweeted a
photo of herself shooting with the caption “Hi
@AlisonForKy ! Eye and ear protection. This is how
it’s done.”

‘Republican strategist Rick Wilson tweeted at her
“Even with that little 10/22, you’re going to want
eye and ear protection. Your DC campaign people
probs don’t know that.”

‘And National Republican Senatorial Committee
spokesman Brad Dayspring called the photo an
“unforced failure,” a common refrain from
Republicans who have accused Lundergan Grimes of
being unprepared for the rigors of a Senate
campaign’.

‘But Democrats on Twitter pointed to photos of both
former Presidents Bush in which they’re shooting
guns without eye and ear protection. And Lundergan
Grimes’s campaign dismissed the critics, noting
that the candidate shoots with her family
frequently’.

‘McConnell has not responded to her invitation’.
