NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Chevrolet Volt owners are fighting for the right to bear gun racks. In a campaign trail attack on subsidized electric cars, Newt Gingrich said, “You can’t put a gun rack in a Volt.” Now, a Volt owner with a video camera has set out to prove him wrong.

In a YouTube video, a Volt owner identified as “jtmcdole” assembles a do-it-yourself gun rack in the back of his Volt, and shows the results. In introducing the video, he said that he made it “in response to Newt Gingrich’s cheap shots at the American-designed, American-made and American-powered Chevrolet Volt.”

General Motors itself has been quick to fire back at Gingrich to defend its Volt. Spokesman Selim Bingol asked in the official company media blog, “Seriously, when was the last time you saw a gun rack in ANY sedan?” He adds that the Volt “can do a lot of things, but if you are looking for a vehicle for your next hunting trip, it may not be your first choice.”
