Skip to comments.NRA official: Obama wants to outlaw guns in 2nd term
Posted on 02/10/2012 5:02:27 PM PST by upchuck
A top official with the National Rifle Association said Friday that President Obama will move to "destroy" gun rights and "erase" the Second Amendment if he is re-elected in November.
While delivering one of the liveliest and best-received speeches at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said the president's low-key approach to gun rights during his first term was "a "conspiracy to ensure re-election by lulling gun owners to sleep."
"All that first term, lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term," he said.
"We see the president's strategy crystal clear: Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms' freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S. Constitution."
Mr. LaPierre said the president's two Supreme Court appointees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are "two of the most rabid anti-gun justices in history." He also accused Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of being a foe of gun rights.
And with the possibility of two or more Supreme Court justice positions opening during the next four years, the NRA official warned that gun ownership would be in jeopardy if Mr. Obama stays in office.
"If we get one more like those three, the Second Amendment is finished," he said. "It'll be the end of our freedom forever."

And prepare for war.
Tough $hit ObowWow.
We already have arms.
Come and take them!
Obama can do whatever he wants guns or no guns because nobody seems to have the guts to stop the tyrant. Unless more conservatives get more involved in the political fight we’ll all be sitting on a pile of guns with no freedom.
Guns, one of the few topics that unite statists and libertarians on the FR. I just don’t see zero broaching the subject overtly. It’ll be some kind of back door regulation twisting that he is famous for.
Fast and Furious was hardly low key.
What Obama is doing is starving the takers to revolt against the makers, to either kill us off and also give a pretext for him to use government power to come after us.
He may even bulk-ship guns to Mexico hoping to gin up support for more gun control here...........
Yep, when Occupy riots as ordered, and guns are used, guns will have to be confiscated from everyone (except criminals) to keep the peace.
I SERIOUSLY doubt, as I never have before, that we will make it to November elections.
April is my bet.
It only takes a lone wolf!
No problem, 150 million legal owners will just drop them off at the local law enforcement agency and understand...
That will be the day...
Seems like he is planning the 2nd Revolution. Bring it on, what more can be said.
That “thing” is nothing more than unintended consequences.
Well, at least I’ll finally get to see one of those new stealth Blackhawks when they land outside of my house. Cool!
So don't shower for a few days, talk dirty, and or ebonics, they'll never know the difference.
Saggy jeans may help as well.
BLEND.....pretend you are one of them while, well, you know.
That's the idea.
What’s scary is that a man makes a speech like this and the world accepts that obama has that much power. Where is the opposition?>
So anyone not a libertarian has to be a "statist." Sure.
