Politico story claim gun owners support Obamas universal background checks
The liberal media will do anything to pressure lawmakers to support President Obamas gun-control agenda.
Politico published a story Wednesday with this headline: Hunting Group Wants Background Checks. The story gave the false impression that the millions of hunters in the U.S. support Mr. Obamas push for universal background checks.
That is way off target. In fact, 31 well-known hunting and conservation groups sent a letter to Capitol Hill Thursday expressing opposition to intrusion by the federal government into private firearm transfers.
Politico only cites one small group in its story, Bull Moose Sportsmen, which claims 5,000 members. The story gives no context for the size of this group in relation to other hunting advocacy groups, nor its prominence in the community. The single poll cited in the Politico story is one commissioned by the group itself and claims 72 percent of hunters support criminal background checks with some exceptions.
None of the major hunting groups which represent the millions of law-abiding sportsmen was mentioned, nor the polling of those members.
In fact, Bull Moose Sportsmen is a fringe organization run by Democratic activists that has been rejected from membership into the major gun and hunting groups umbrella organization because it refuses to reveal its funding sources.

Is that the kind of name chosen by an organization for public officials’ anal sex meth parties?
There have been other groups like this in the past, and they have mostly failed.
Somehow, the “Bull Moose” thing surfaces repeatedly from the Liber[whatever]/”progressive”/effeminate/homo/socialist types.
“Co-Founder Gaspar Perricone, who told Politico that, Background checks fall within the ethics of responsible gun ownership, is a former staffer for Sen. Mark Udall, Colorado Democrat”
He’s also donated money to the Obama campaign.
Yep, I guess it’s not too surprising being it’s a phony group, they have a hard time with the truth.
Thanks, they’re probably joined at the hip.
FUDDS...Working for Rats...

Let’s see a membership list, not the local phonebook.
The Democrats have more fronts that the Communist Party does today. But I’m close to being redundant.
Elite liberals are such liars... and the MSM never seems to 'catch' the lies.
An impartial political journalism outfit wouldn't do something dishonest like that, right?
So many lefties claim to be hunters these days; it’s a wonder that there’s a game animal left alive in the country.
heh heh heh
I know it’s hard to imagine. :-)
Same here in Pennsylvania. About the only 'single digit' TV I watch is the local news and that commercial plays over and over. There is some big money behind it.
And the idiot actor in that commercial has the chamber closed on his shot gun, his finger on the trigger, the gun pointed sideways with kids playing in the area.
I'll agree he should not own a fire arm because he is too damn stupid to understand even basic fire arm safety. ;~))
BTW. It is illegal to hunt from a vehicle in Pennsylvania, so why does this guy who appears to have a loaded weapon with his finger on the trigger sitting on the bed of his pick-up?
Typical Hollywood bull crap pretending they understand those 'lesser folk' out in fly over country. All they need is an actor with a flannel shirt talking with a put-on 'country accent' while pretending he is a hunter and they are good to go.
Every single Dem state senator who spoke B4 the vote of the CT gun law, evoked the *bi-partisan* agreement to universal background checks in the law...including hunting gun groups and individuals who *agreed*....they’re reading from the same well-oiled play book...and getting away with murder in the interim.
I hope legal challenges are imminent.
The ‘hunter’ ad being run by Bloomberg sure makes those of us who live rural laugh out loud.
The yard behind him doesn’t have a collection of old trucks & machinery which have quit running & are parked where they died. No proper burial!!
The truck itself is much too clean & new for the usual ranchers & hunters, etc. There is a ‘truck bedliner’ in it, which is also not a favorite of ranchers, etc.
The clothes the ‘hunter’ is wearing are not used enough already. No tears, or fading, like most of us have.
Not very many ranchers I have known have a man’s manicure. And the beard is just too much. Perfectly shaped & groomed.
The gun almost looks fake, but perhaps not.
Anyway-—they are sure spending $$$$$ here in Nevada trying to convince people who have a gun with them at all times out on their properties that we should all give them up & submit to any kind of ‘backgound check’ Bloomie wants.
We aren’t that stupid.
WE all KNOW that the criminals will never play by the rules.
We know that millions of people who have never done a single thing wrong with their weapons are being punished for actions of the criminals & crazies.
What a surprise. That never happened before.
Or do the “Fudds” among us, who don’t care if AR-15s are banned, now have their own `gun advocacy’ group?
(Just kidding. I think.)
Does the “Bull Moose” group’s founders remember that `progressive’ Theodore Roosevelt was a gun owning & gun wielding mighty hunter? Armed with the best weapons of his time, T.R. blasted his way across the African continent, killing game such as would make a PETA person ghostly pale?
Anyway, this group is obviously a false-flag Trojan horse and nothing else. Liberals are so tone deaf about guns & hunting, this latest attempt is like Jean F’in Kerry asking “Where do ah go to git me a hunting license?”.
“...Obama lied. As usual. Repeatedly, again as usual....”
Well, I think many of us have discovered that if his lips are moving, our messianic transparent King Pinocchio is lying. Unless it’s some minor tidbit that will further his grand illusion of a totally communist utopia named the USSA. ...with him playing the role of Hugo, of course.
“...The Democrats have more fronts that the Communist Party does today. But Im close to being redundant....”
You are redundant. They are one in the same. There are NO Democrats as we used to know them 20 years ago. NONE!!! They are now all out of the closet (obamacare votes were the snapshot) and they are ALL hard-core communists; every last stinkin’ one of em. They have convinced the low-info, low-intelligence voter to believe that they will “take care of them and give them things”, but once the guns are gone and their opposition is swept out, they will annihilate those “useful idiots” that make up the “unwashed masses” just like Stalin did. Once again, history will repeat itself.
