"Lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the Second Amendment during his second term.
We see the president's strategy crystal clear: Get re-elected and, with no more elections to worry about, get busy dismantling and destroying our firearms' freedom, erase the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights and excise it from the U.S. Constitution. ...
When the sun goes down on election day Barack Obama will have America's gun owners to thank for his defeat."
Seriously, What the Hell is this guy talking about. So according to the NRA Obama's entire first term was just a set up for his devious plan to ruin the country in his second term. Honestly, I am a gun loving, hunting and fishing Minnesotan with a deep love for the outdoors and firearms. I see nothing that would suggest to me that Obama is doing any of the suggested.
A bigger fear to me is that people saying stupid things such as the NRA President just did, ruins people's impressions of most other gun owners. Anyone who believes Obama can ruin the rights of gun owners is deeply mistaken, the US Government is based on the fact that no one man or woman, including the president, can ruin anything by himself. And infringing on gun rights is a quick way to not get re-elected. Clinging to your guns while the Republicans cut funding for education, destroy researc and development in the US and wreak havoc on the economy based on their narrow minded view of the world is a much bigger issue.
I am a gun owner, I am a hunter, I am an outdoorsman, I am an engineer, I am an American. I will vote for Obama over any current Republican contender for President.
