Trying to seize the moment after President Obama's unveiling of new gun control initiatives, candidate for 2nd congressional district, Robin Kelly, drew attention to her opponents' previous support from the NRA.

"Unlike my opponents Debbie Halvorson and Toi Hutchinson, who both received support from the NRA, I got an F rating and frankly, I could not be more proud," Kelly said in a statement.

The Sun-Times previously looked at the candidates' views on gun issues.

The special primary to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. will be held on Feb. 26.
