Some Ohioans seek pro-gun sign near anti-NRA billboard

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - A political action committee's billboard calling the National Rifle Association a "terrorist organization" isn't sitting well with some nearby Ohio residents, who are raising funds to put a pro-gun message on an adjacent billboard.

WCPO-TV reports the billboard over northbound Interstate 75 in Middletown was funded by Mad Dog PAC, which has targeted the NRA and Republican politicians with more than a dozen billboards around the country.

In comments to WCPO, the group's chairman, Claude Taylor, questioned where the NRA gets its money, saying he's "very suspicious of some of their Russian funding." He also says the billboard messages are appropriately sharp.

But some local residents say it doesn't represent their feelings and want to put a counterpoint billboard. A GoFundMe page for the effort has raised over $1,000.
