President of Obama's fake gun group admits partisan origins at poorly-attended rally
The president of faux gun group American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA), Ray Schoenke, appeared in Coshocton Tuesday before what is described by the Zanesville Times-Recorder as a "strong showing by the United Mine Workers Association".
In fact, the newspaper reveals only about "a dozen people listened to him speak," turnout which does an excellent job of demonstrating the lack of support former Joyce Foundation board member Obama is receiving from Ohio gun owners.
The poorly-attended rally did offer something to gun owners, however.
On its website, right after listing several organizational "values" that would make the anti-gun Brady Campaign proud, AHSA claims to be "a non-partisan organization that advocates and advances sensible public policies." (emphasis added)
But on this, his second trip to Ohio to campaign for Barack Obama, Schoenke admitted the organization is anything BUT non-partisan.
In 2005, John Lott posted a story (sourcing another weblog) about the launch of AHSA, and about the strong appearance of ties to the Democrat Leadership Council (DLC).
While AHSA has, as recently as last month, claimed the fact that they originally shared the same street address with the DLC, that their domain name registry was originally registered by DCS - Internet Advocacy Group, also at the same street address, and that their original press person was Dan Drummond, Chairman of the Fairfax City (VA) Democratic Committee, were all coincidences, Schoenke has finally admitted the truth:

Not a suprise. I just wish McCain would make this issue much bigger, as the battleground states all have high numbers of gun owners and Obama's record is crystal clear.
"The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree..."
