Arizona lobbyist on how he defeated an amendment on the Parking Lot Bill. NRA Board member/Attorney Todd Rathner tells Ginny Simone that he and his partner got into a heated debate with State Representative Kopernicki over a proposed amendment to the legislation at the last minute before deadline. Rathner said it was especially frustrating because the NRA had backed Kopernicki in his most recent campaign, only to have him surreptitiously attempt to exclude thousands of gun owners from the protection of this bill with exemption addendums. However, Rathner "explained" to the lawmaker just in time that there are an awful lot of voters in the NRA.
