In a previous attempt to appear friendly to the Second Amendment, Kentucky Secretary of State and candidate for Senate Alison Grimes posted a photo of herself target shooting — although without any eye or ear protection.

Apparently unwilling to repeat that gaffe, Grimes has found another photo in which she’s properly equipped to shoot a firearm, juxtaposed with a pic of Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell preparing to present an antique rifle to the retiring Sen. Tom Coburn at CPAC.

The eye and ear protection might be in place, but that doesn’t mean the new ad won’t backfire.
