Former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli may be out of public office, but he is not quite out of the spotlight.
Cuccinelli remains actively involved in a number of causes that he championed during his often controversial time in office. He currently serves as lead counsel in a lawsuit filed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) against the NSA. Paul is widely considered to be a candidate for president. Cuccinelli is also popping up on national talk shows to defend conservative policy as he did recently as a guest on CNN's Crossfire.
But his activism is not relegated to the national debate. Cuccinelli is also in the mix at a very base level, offering his services as a defense attorney to gun owners who are nervous about their legal rights being violated.
Cuccinelli's new firm, Virginia Self Defense Law, allows clients to put his firm on a monthly retainer. In the event they find themselves in legal trouble the firm will represent them for no additional cost.
But the concept is not without it's critics. Here is a preview of our special report set to air Monday night at 11 on NBC12.
It is difficult for Cuccinelli to do much of anything, even in his post-public life, without drawing controversy, but there is some scuttle about his effort with this particular firm.
On Monday we sit down one on one with the former AG, look in depth at the legality of his firm and hear why some are concerned about what he plans to do.
That is Monday night at 11 on NBC12.
