The NRA’s Chuck Norris Ad

Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.


The National Rifle Association is firing up its voter army for November’s midterm elections. Nevermind that the past two years have brought the greatest advances in gun rights in a half-century: that won’t stop the NRA from scaring people with the prospect of “them” coming to try to take away your gun. Here’s Walker, Texas Ranger star Chuck Norris, helping out:

Anyway, Chuck, who makes Apple Pie look un-American, is right: you should register to vote. And you should also read Mother Jones’ full Chuck Norris coverage. Remember the time he took on the climate change “con game“? Or debunked the theory of evolution? Or joined the birthers? Those were all awesome. But while I realize Chuck Norris can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves, I’m personally more of a fan of General Petraeus—a man who has his own adjective.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
