Gubernatorial Candidates Publicize Gun Ownership

Governor Ernie Fletcher and his Democratic challenger both publicize they are gun owners.

Political Analyst Larry Sabato said in a state like Kentucky, where families commonly own guns, it's politically wise for candidates to say they have a shotgun or rifle.

That's in large part because of the clout of the 4.3-million member National Rifle Association.

Fletcher has won endorsement from the NRA in previous elections.

He said he supports gun ownership for all law-abiding citizens.

Beshear said he believes in the right to bear arms and owns a shotgun.
