Newt Gingrich campaigned in New Hampshire today just as the  National Association for Gun Rights sent out robo-calls in the state accusing the former House speaker of being “anti-gun.”

The calls, reports The Boston Globe, accuse the former house speaker of failing to address the group' survey, “Maybe it’s because of his past support for gun control.”

“Newt also supported the Lautenberg law that takes away gun rights for crimes as simple as spanking your child,” the call says. “In fact, even he wants to mandate a thumb print scan for all gun owners.”

The group also accuse Gingrich of attempting to institute tougher gun laws.

The National Association for Gun Rights is a Virginia group run by a gun rights lobbyist, the Globe reports.

Gingrich's staff directed reporters to their website, which indicates Gingrich supports the better-known National Rifle Association which has said he has been a supporter of the Second Amendment.
