An Illinois Take on Obama's Respect for the Second Amendment

Obama will not be able to impose the sort of Change he has in mind without first disarming us. Despite his recent dissembling to the contrary, this fits in smoothly with the moonbat messiah's attitudes, as confirmed in this letter to sportsmen from Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson:

Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association.
I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama's attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone. The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than does Barack Obama.
Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month.
Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.
Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?
And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger — a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And let's not forget Obama's pal George Soros — the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UN's international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.
Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other people's money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.
Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?
By now, I'm sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called "American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA)" talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear - everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash. The AHSA is headed by a group of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be.
In closing, I'd like to remind you that I'm a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nation's outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants — so long as people are willing to give it to him.
That's the Barack Obama I know.

We may soon be finding out the hard way why our Founding Fathers regarded the right to bear arms as second only to the right of free speech.

On a tip from Jim J.

I've heard of the Annenberg Challenge. I've heard of the Woods Fund. But I've never heard of the Joyce Foundation. So I did a little searching and turned up this:

Obama and the Attempt to Destroy the Second Amendment

How many more boards has this Marxist f*ckwit been director of??

BO will champion the liberal anti-gun effort that promotes unarmed anonymity as protection against predators. The liberal mentality on defense against violent criminals takes a default position that assumes that violence will happen to my neighbor and not me if I keep my head down. That’s why liberals do not have signs on their cars/houses supporting their disarmament positions.

When have you seen a “We are unarmed” sticker as counterpart to an NRA sticker?

If you are a predatory criminal and you take a chance with an NRA member and his family, you’re taking a much bigger chance than you would be taking with a (probably unarmed) liberal. Liberals know this and want to even the score. Liberals are heavily invested in abetting violent, predatory criminals. As an example, you only have to look at the unconstitutional gun confiscation process that occurred in New Orleans right after Katrina. That opened up big opportunities for criminals.

If such criminals can figure out how to vote, guess who they would vote for?

BTW neither of the candidates care a dead deer about the constitution as far as I can tell.
