Am I the only one who thinks the two above are contradictory???




Voted against Brady Bill & assault weapon ban. (Aug 1999)


This vote wasn't in 1999, IIRC. I have read numerous times in the past where McCain HAD voted FOR the AW Ban. I have heard Gordon Liddy many times defend McCain & discussed McCain's voting for said bill.
