Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tx) is not happy about Bush's support of renewing the Assault weapon/Magazine Capacity ban. In fact he's circulating a letter among Congressmen to express his feelings on the matter.

"We are sure we need not remind you that a large and active part of our constituency supports the right to keep and bear arms. It will be a slap in the face to these millions of law-abiding gun owners if this White House and Congress support renewal of the semi-auto ban.
Mr. President, we are asking that you listen to the will of the people, that you keep your oath to defend the Constitution and do what is right. Support the sunset clause and let the American citizens buy and use what was rightfully theirs."

This is the man the NRA is considering withdrawing its support from? This is the same man whom the NRA feels may not be worthy of support because he disagrees with them on a constitutional matter? That says more about the NRA's lack of character than they realize.
