NRA And Brady Campaign AGREE: Barack Obama Is Anti-Gun

Friday, October 17, 2008

In a rare occurrence, NRA and the Brady Campaign (formerly Handgun Control, Incorporated) agree on something.    

Four years ago, the Brady Campaign endorsed an anti-gun senator by the name of John Kerry for President, and NRA thought that decision made sense—for an anti-gun group.  

This week, in a testament to his anti-gun record, Barack Obama also received a presidential endorsement from the Brady Campaign. 

So, once again, the Brady Campaign and NRA are in total agreement—Barack Obama is, by far, the most anti-gun presidential nominee in history and he certainly deserves the endorsement of one of the most outspoken anti-gun organizations in the country.            

NRA-ILA has repeatedly documented Obama’s anti-gun stance; but if any doubt remains about Obama’s true position on the Second Amendment, his endorsement from the Brady Campaign should dispel it.   

The Brady endorsement of Obama comes on the heels of similar endorsements we’ve reported on from the American Hunters and Shooters Association,  and the Humane Society of the United States, and dovetails nicely with them¾the first group being the leading anti-gun lobby in the country; the second, a phony front group whose mission is to confuse sportsmen as to their true anti-gun agenda; and the third a radical animal “rights” group that wants to ban all hunting in the United States! 

So, as a pro-gun voter, you’ve got to ask yourself:  Why do these vehemently anti-gun, anti-hunting groups unequivocally endorse Barack Obama?   And the answer is:  They know he supports their anti-gun, anti-hunting agenda and is therefore their logical and unanimous choice! 

The Brady endorsement puts Obama in the anti-gun company of Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI), Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), John Conyers (D-NY), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), and, of course, John Kerry (D-MA), to name a few, who are also counted among the Bradys’ endorsed, anti-gun political elite this year. 

The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has issued its endorsement in the 2008 Presidential race (due to federal campaign finance regulations, you’ll have to read more about that endorsement by clicking here), and is more than confident that its endorsed candidate is not simply the better choice of the two; he is the far better choice.  In fact, there can be no doubt; the man Brady, AHSA, and HSUS have endorsed is the most anti-gun presidential candidate in American history!
