The gun lobby in the us election campaign

U.S. Vice president cheney was celebrated at the annual convention of the national rifle association, soon there could again be legal submachine guns on the market in the u.S

Enthusiastically, american gun enthusiasts celebrated vice president dick cheney saturday night at the pittsburgh convention center. The reason was the 133. Membership meeting of the national rifle association (nra, made famous worldwide by its then-president charlton heston in michael moore’s film bowling for columbine). The reason for cheney’s appearance, who rarely makes public speeches, is the power and membership strength of the gun lobby. Their influence in the u.S. Congress and the white house is so great that submachine guns and other heavy assault weapons, which have been respected since 1994, could soon be freely sold again.

"Four more years, four more years", shouted about 4.000 nra members chanted after his speech to the man considered by many to be the real movers and shakers in the white house and for "the brain" george bush’s. Dick cheney, himself an avid hunter and, more importantly, a shrewd auben and domestic power politician, laughingly accepted the nra trademark from the nra chiefs: a rifle. Charlton heston had made it a symbol in 2000 against democratic presidential candidate al gore, who was arguing for tougher gun laws, brandishing it over his head and shouting that he could have his gun taken away "only from its cold, dead hands" take away.
