    Cooper Arms owner Dan Cooper backs Obama. Can't post the article due to copy write infringement, But I thought you might want to know that a gun manufacturer is supporting a gun grabber. He said he was he was dazzled by Obama's speech at that year's Democratic National Convention.

    This is the NRA site to educate people about Obama. Please view the videos and spread them to anyone you might know who owns guns. Obama, simply stated, is about as far removed from defending the 2nd Amendment as one could imagine. IMAGINE, TRUTH SQUAD, and WORDS are excellent videos. I am simply posting this for those who may not have seen this, as I want to get the word out.

    Standing Guard: Vote For The Second Amendment Tuesday, October 14, 2008 In just a few days, on November 4, gun owners will be presented with a very clear choice of a pro-Second Amendment versus an anti-Second Amendment Presidential ticket. John McCain and Sarah Palin versus Barack Obama and Joe Biden represents a stark contrast for the future of our freedom.In that choice, one fact is foremost:The next president, by filling inevitable vacancies on the U.S. Supreme Court, will determine the continued existence of our Right To Keep and Bear Arms.The landmark Heller decision by the U.S. Supreme Court--which struck down...

    Barack Obama has voted for or supported some of the most extreme gun control measures ever attempted in our nation. And yet, with the help of his media accomplices, the Democrat has managed to lull some gun owners into complacency, just as he has managed to lull many hard-working, red-blooded American workers into complacency by obscuring his socialist economic agenda. Thanks to one simple question from Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail, Americans now know about Obama's plan for wealth redistribution. And thanks to one simple answer to an interview question, Obama has given "Joe the Hunter" all he...
  • Why Did it Have to be ... Guns?

    Over the past 30 years, I've been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I've thought about the issue a lot, and it has always determined the way I vote. People accuse me of being a single-issue writer, a single- issue thinker, and a single- issue voter, but it isn't true. What I've chosen, in a world where there's never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician—or political philosophy—is...

    GARLAND – With nine days left until the election, people aren't only lining up to vote early; they are also apparently heading to sporting goods stores and gun shops as owners have reported an increase in business. Gun owners have expressed concern that Barack Obama, if elected, will not only renew the ban on assault weapons, but also make it permanent. "Not that people are fear-buying,” said John Mannewitz, a manager at Target Master. “But, if there's something cool you want to get, people are saying sooner is better than later." Target Master, a gun store in Garland, used to...

    The NRA is going up in 10 battleground states with an featuring a tough-talking Chuck Norris touting the Second Amendment and warning against those unnamed politicians who have not supported gun rights. "He’s an American badass," said Chris Cox, the NRA's chief lobbyist, of Norris. Cox wouldn't say how much they were spending on the ad, but that it would be on broadcast and cable, cycled into a seven-figure buy they have up now. They'll air the spot in Colorado, Nevada, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The NRA has spent millions going after Barack Obama...

    Gun Sales Thriving Despite Tough Economy Oct. 27, 2008 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (Washington Post) This story was written by Fredrick Kunkle. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Americans have cut back on buying cars, furniture and clothes in a tough economy, but there's one consumer item that's still enjoying healthy sales: guns. Purchases of firearms and ammunition have risen 8 to 10 percent this year, according to state and federal data. Several variables drive sales, but many dealers, buyers and experts attribute the increase in part to concerns about the economy and fears that if Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois wins the presidency, he will join with...

    ST. PAUL — Al Franken suggested he and Republican Sen. Norm Coleman agree on gun rights. “I support the 2nd Amendment,” Franken said. “I don’t think we’re any different on this.” Coleman shot that down. “That is a stunning statement,” he told the Democrat during a Friday night debate among Minnesota’s three major candidates for U.S. Senate. Coleman, locked in a tight battle with Franken, said his main opponent got a failing grade from the National Rifle Association and has suggested limiting gun ownership. “There’s no question that there’s significant differences,” Coleman said, touting his “A” rating from the NRA....

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | October 24, 2008 | CHRIS W. COX
    Letters to the editor Obama's gun record Barack Obama's high-profile surrogates are asking gun owners and hunters to trust Sen. Obama with their guns. But he has not earned that trust. As state senator, Mr. Obama advocated handgun bans and 500 percent tax increases on all firearms and ammunition. He voted to ban single-shot 20-gauge shotguns, calling them "assault weapons." He even voted four times to allow the prosecution of a father who defended his family in his own home with a handgun. --snip-- These surrogates support Mr. Obama because they share a political party. That's understandable. However, it is...

    Colorado Springs Gazette ^ | October 22, 2008 | Masthead Editorial
    Brilliantly, Democrats have kept the issue of guns out of the presidential campaign. Guns have barely been mentioned, with the exception of Barack Obama's gaffe about rubes clinging to Bibles and guns, his cautious support of the Supreme Court's Heller decision, and pop culture references to GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin killing moose. Democrats have long been on the losing end of the gun-rights debate, which has cost them countless elections. Quietly, on Oct. 13, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence - one of the most radical gun control organization in the United States - endorsed Obama. It's...

    NRA hopes to seal election by painting Obama as no friend of the firearm The National Rifle Association is pouring money and manpower into Nevada — the state’s 3rd Congressional District in particular — in hopes of defeating Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama and carrying Republican Rep. Jon Porter to a fourth term in Congress. The group is spending $40 million nationwide this election season to tell its 4 million members — and tens of millions more gun owners — Obama would be the most anti-gun president in history. In Southern Nevada, the NRA has organized 60 volunteers to promote...

  • NRA Endorses Baron Hill (D) for IN-9 WHAT IS GOING ON?

    I was shocked to find that the NRA has endorsed Baron Hill for IN-9. This is insane, with a good Republican (Sodrel) who could have been endorsed in a very close election. Granted, Hill has only a 36% rating from the Brady Campaign, but our solid Republican representatives all are down in the single digits (with Pence leading the way with a 0% rating -- way to go Mike!). GOA gave Hill a D- in their 2007 rating, but apparently the NRA thought he was good for an A in 2008. I've always been in the "NRA is one of...

    WASHINGTON - The National Rifle Association is spending more than $10 million to keep Barack Obama from occupying the White House. The formidable gun-rights group is waging a full-court press against the Illinois senator and Democratic nominee for president, claiming that Obama would be the "most anti-gun president in American history." Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, the political and lobbying arm of the group, said Obama's talk of supporting the Second Amendment does not match his record. "It's shameless at best for a candidate like Barack Obama, who has a lifetime of support...

    Obama is talking to gun owners -- and they're listening By Ray Schoenke at October 14, 2008 - 11:00am I was in Florida over the weekend campaigning for Obama. I'm impressed with the way the Obama campaign will not cede any vote to McCain. This is the first time any Democratic presidential campaign has so aggressively fought for gun owners. I think it's working - and it's throwing the GOP-controlled NRA for a loop. I like this headline from the Daytona Beach News-Journal: "Obama, McCain lining up gun groups" Obama is actually lining up gun voters, which is most important....
