You can hardly go to your favorite news website today without seeing Barack Obama claim he supports the Second Amendment, or seeing some anti-gun front group telling the same lie.
"If you've got a gun in your house, I'm not taking it," Obama says, even though he voted in the Illinois state senate to do just that. And he goes on to admit the real obstacle: "Even if I wanted to take it away, I couldn't get it done. I don't have the votes in Congress."
But when you're done laughing, you realize how serious the stakes are. An Obama-Biden administration would spell disaster for American gun owners. In an Obama-Biden administration, we'd see:
Bans on your guns
Bans your ammo
Taxes on your guns and ammo
Anti-Second Amendment Supreme Court justices
Our mission is to ensure that Obama never has the chance to push the radical schemes he promoted in Illinois, or voted for in the U.S. Senate, or funded through the Joyce Foundation.
Fortunately, the NRA Political Victory Fund is leading the way to get the truth to America's gun owners. Between now and Election Day, November 4th, we'll be on the air on TV and radio in this year's battleground states to tell the truth about the Obama-Biden record. And we'll be advertising in some of our nation's top political papers to get the word out.
Our ads are the voice of average American gun owners. A family man outraged over Obama's attack on his way of life. A hunter explaining what an Obama administration would mean for sportsmen. And an Iraq war veteran talking about what an Obama administration would mean for American freedom.
Because we have to focus on the battleground states that will decide this election, we can't be on the air everywhere. But you can still see our message, and get the word to your fellow gun owners, by going to our new website, www.GunBanObama.com. It'll have all our radio ads...all our TV ads...and all our print ads. And please check back often as we'll have new ads up between now and election day as they appear.
Finally, please share this message with your friends...your family members...and your fellow gun owners. To defend freedom, we must defeat Obama. And we can only do that by getting the word to everyone who cares about the Second Amendment.
