Really, Don’t Believe Obama! (And Here Are The Citations)

Friday, June 13, 2008

Last week’s Grassroots Alert story on Barack Obama entitled “On The Second Amendment, Don’t Believe Obama!” received a great deal of attention.  Amazingly, some people still don’t believe Obama is radically anti-gun, and some have gone so far as to claim that NRA was actually misrepresenting Obama’s anti-gun positions. Well, sometimes the truth hurts, and for those who continue to believe that Obama is a friend of gun owners, here is the proof he most definitely is not. 

NRA-ILA has produced an expanded version of “On The Second Amendment, Don’t Believe Obama!” that includes complete citations for each item listed in Obama’s long anti-gun record.  It has been posted on the NRA-ILA web site and can be found here: http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=3991

A printable version that can be distributed to believers and non-believers alike can be found here: http://www.nraila.org/media/PDFs/2008Obamafactsht.pdf

We encourage everyone to use these documents to demonstrate the significant threat Barack Obama poses to our Second Amendment rights and to counter his ongoing, bogus claims of support for gun owners and sportsmen or for an individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
