(FixThisNation.com) – A political action committee backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) possible presidential run was launched on Friday. In the ad, they criticize former President Trump for being a “gun-grabber” over his recent comments in support of gun control legislation.
The ad is being backed by the Never Back Down PAC, founded by former senior Trump administration official Ken Cuccinelli. The ad also stated that Trump had promised those National Rifle Association (NRA) members that he would support them but they claim in the ad that instead Trump “abandoned us” as soon as the Second Amendment rights were attacked.
Many of Trump’s comments about standing up to the NRA and backing gun control measures are also included in the ad which alleges that he has been agreeing with many leading Democrats pushing for gun control including Vice President Kamala Harris and Sens. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).
In the footage, Trump also states that many of the other GOP members were “petrified” of the NRA even though they should not be. They also fear that the NRA possesses more power than they do. Other comments featured include remarks made by Trump in support of the red flag laws, which could stop a certain individual from being allowed to own a gun if they are considered to be harmful to themselves or to others.
Cuccinelli launched the PAC in February to support DeSantis’ potential run in the 2024 presidential primary, despite the fact that DeSantis himself has not made any announcements regarding his intentions for 2024.
