No pic yet, but a description: The NRA ad, featuring an illustration of Star Wars-type imperial stormtroopers wearing ATF insignia, was headlined, "Tell the Clinton White House to Stay Out of Your House," and featured the subhead, "The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Has Not Only Lost Public Trust, But Deserves Public Contempt." After reciting some general charges of civil liberties abuses by BATF enforcement agents, the NRA ad calls on the Clinton Administration to: "1. regain control of the ATF, 2. expose and prosecute those guilty of civil rights abuses, and 3. institute strict policies that honor the bill of rights." The ad concludes with the following: "If the Clinton Administration does not rein in this rogue agency, then Congress should step in and abolish it altogether." Will hunt for a pic though.
