    Exclamation Don't believe Obama!

    I got this in my e-mail from the NRA.

    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.

    On the Second Amendment,

    Don’t Believe Obama!
    The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where apparent nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.

    But his real record, based on votes taken, political associations, and long standing positions, shows that Barack Obama is a serious threat to Second Amendment liberties. Don’t listen to his campaign rhetoric! Look instead to what he has said and done during his entire political career.

    The only thing that Barack is truthful about is that there will be change. Boy, are folks in for a surprise when they realize what the change is!

    Politics is the race to see who can lie the longest.
    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    I am the God fearing, gun toting, flag waving conservative you were warned about!

    Hitler and Stalin brought change. Sadly we may very well find out if the comparison warranted or not.
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
