The Calmer, Gentler ‘Gunny’ Wants You to Vote

The NRA launches its voter-registration drive today — “Trigger the Vote” — with a web video featuring R. Lee “Gunny” Ermey . . . in his new career as a librarian.

The yokel yakking loudly on his cell phone makes an in-joke referring to the NRA’s last get-out-the-vote ad, which featured Chuck Norris.

Gunny’s message:

Listen up and hear me well! This is a critical time for our nation, and too many people are sitting back to let others do the hard work. So it’s time for all of us to put some gas in it and persuade all eligible gun owners to register. That’s why I volunteered my time to film the ad shown here. Now it’s your turn and I want to see results! Start now by sending this message to everyone you know who supports the Second Amendment. I expect 110% right now from everyone who values our freedoms! NO EXCUSES. And remember — pain is just weakness leaving the body!
