Chuck Michel's partner elected LA County Attorney
Cal. State Rifle and Pistol reports that Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich won the election with 55% of the vote. Of his opponent, it notes:
"This is a tremendous victory for the Second Amendment, because Trutanich's opponent, rabidly anti-gun- owner Los Angeles City Councilmember Jack Weiss, works closely with the gun ban lobby to advance its agenda. Weiss had promised to work with other anti-gun-owner cities and the Obama Administration to pass ill-conceived gun bans and to overturn the Supreme Court's ruling confirming your Second Amendment rights....
Weiss spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on mailers and TV ads smearing Trutanich with the NRA connection. The tactic backfired, and every ad Weiss ran against the NRA became a rallying cry for gun owners to vote against him. Meanwhile, Weiss didn't gain many votes based on the NRA angle, because those people would have voted for Weiss anyway, or not voted at all."
