Obama's The Most Anit-Gun Candidate Ever

To The Editor:

Obviously, Erwin (letter to the editor October 9, 2008) is lambasting the NRA to trick local people into thinking Obama is not antigun. I have this to say about that notion: Hogwash!

Obama is the most anit-gun candidate to ever run for president. Witness below:

Fact: Obama has supported banning hundreds of rifles and shotguns commonly used for hunting and sport shooting. Illinois Senate Debate #3: Barack Obama vs. Alan Keyes. 10/21/04.

Fact: Obama voted to allow reckless lawsuits designed to put the firearms industry out of business. S.397, vote 219, 7/29/05.

Fact: Obama supports a mandated national registry of all firearms owners. "No News In Obama's Consistent Record" Obama campaign Web site, 12/11/07.

Fact: Obama voted to ban almost all rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting. S. 397, vote 215, 7/29/05.

Fact: Obama supported increasing taxes on firearms and ammunition by 500 percent. Chicago Defender, 12/13/99.

Make no mistake my hunting, shooting and home-defending friends, this glib elitist, city boy wants to take away all your guns as quickly as possible and turn you from being a free American into a subject. No mistake! None!

As for the NRA, Erwin can just lay off. Everyone out here knows that the NRA is a completely legitimate lobby working within the laws of the land to protect the Second Amendment rights of all gunowning, free Americans whether they are members or not. People like Erwin would love to silence this effort. Let us hope they never succeed.

If Obama wins, you lose! Don't be fooled. Defend freedom. Defeat Obama. Vote. W.L. Mosebey Jr. (NRA Benefactor Member) Wells Tannery
