Skip to comments.NRA Begins Push To Tarnish Obama On Guns (The fight is on)

But the point is clear: If you're a hunter, Barack Obama is not anything like you. And if he doesn't understand your concerns, he sure doesn't deserve your vote.
Obama has been fighting the notion that he opposes gun rights, stressing on the stump that he backs Second Amendment protections. His campaign has released a radio ad featuring American Hunters and Shooters Association head Ray Schoenke telling hunters the Democratic nominee won't come for their guns.
"The bottom line is this. If youve got a rifle, youve got a shotgun, youve got a gun in your house, Im not taking it away," Obama said earlier this month in Pennsylvania. "Alright? So they can keep on talking about it, but this is just not true."
(Obama also said at the time that even if he wanted to take hunters' guns away, he "couldn't get it done" since he doesn't "have the votes in Congress" - a statement that did not exactly put sportsmen's fears to rest.)

The Brady Bunch in drag.
“If youve got a rifle, youve got a shotgun, youve got a gun in your house, Im not taking it away,” Obama said earlier this month in Pennsylvania. “Alright? So they can keep on talking about it, but this is just not true.”
This reminds me of Bill Clintons’ stand on the death penalty. He claimed he was supportive of capital punishment, but the two farleft liberals that Clinton put on the SCOTUS were both opponents of capital punishment.
Fauxbama is trying to pull a clinton in that he’s saying that he will never take your guns away but that begs the question. It’s not him that I’m worried about on this and other important issues, it’s his flawed judgement in his selection of members of the high court. Does anyone out there really believe that a fauxbama appointee to the SCOTUS would not join the Stevens, Souter, breyer, and ruth buzzi brigade of gungrabbers?
How does one create a vanity post? Any tips?
Obama is by definition a racist-Marxist-socialist.
In his mind there is no choice -- he has to take your guns.
Osama will come from this in several ways. He’ll advocate cutting off ammo and reloading supplies making your gun nothing more than a club or paperweight. He’ll also advocate making only single-shot weapons legal. He’ll make anti-gun a litmus test for justices on the Supreme Court. He’ll set aside 1 acre in each state as a federal gun preserve where owners can legally shoot at targets under strict supervision of the BATF, but close off the rest of the US to any form of shooting. There is a lot he can do or advocate to severely limit our 2nd amendment rights without actually eliminating the 2nd amendment.
Does anyone know what sort of 527’s are out this year, I expected to see a few by now. I live in a “battle ground” state and just saw ‘rightchange.com’ last night, but that’s it.
I was hoping by now to see ads on:
If anyone thinks Obama is a friend of gun owners they are insane. His record is clear.
* Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
* FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
* Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
* Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing. (Jan 2008)
* 2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month. (Oct 2007)
* Concealed carry OK for retired police officers. (Aug 2007)
* Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities. (Jul 2007)
* Keep guns out of inner cities—but also problem of morality. (Oct 2006)
* Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban. (Oct 2004)
* Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions. (Jul 1998)
* Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)
Just create one.
Yeah. Don't do it. Please!
I’ve never heard of that organization. How many members do they have, as compared with the NRA and GOA?
Joyce has poured millions of dollars into all sorts of gungrabber nonsense over the years, including a book entitled Every Handgun Is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.
It's not a stretch to say this clown will say anything to seize the reins of power. He's a clear and present danger to freedom.
If you believe in your right to defend yourself, your family, or your home, Barack is not anything like you. Don't you think he knows that the criminals, who serve as armed auxiliaries for totalitarian movements, will be armed anyway?
Click on “Post” (just like starting any other thread). Fill out form as appropriate. Mark title “(vanity)” for politeness.
Please don’t, though. Vanity posts are rarely appreciated.
Notice the title of the article? The NRA begins push to tarnish Obama on Guns. How about a more unbiased title like The NRA begins it’s campaign to reveal Obama’s position on guns.
No idea how many members but that doesn't matter. Money matters and they've got lots. A little insight into who they are from Wikipedia, which is not known for its conservatism:
I'll cling to my religion and my guns to my death...and after.
