NRA does mailing for Alderman Charles Quincy Troupe

I got a postcard from the NRA urging me to vote for Alderman Troupe tomorrow. Strange that I got the postcard, since I don't live in the 1st Ward. The postcard reads:

"Alderman Troupe is a strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights and he needs your vote to win. He has publicly encouraged his constituents to take gun safety training and apply for concealed carry permits. In a city that largely discourages victims of crime to defend themselves, Alderman Troupe is a lone voice for common sense measures that empower law-abiding citizens against criminals in St. Louis."

It is nice to see a group like the NRA spend money in support of a St. Louis politician who speaks out for St. Louis freedom and property rights!
