Protect your gun rights

  • Follow Letters

Being a member of the National Rifle Association, I would like to take this chance to inform every law-abiding citizen and gun owner that President Obama and his liberal Cabinet members – namely Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich, to name a few – continue to try everything within their power to take away our Second Amendment rights, which is the right to keep and bear arms.

If any of you have any doubt that this is not true, read the article in the NRA America’s First Freedom magazine about the murder of a Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry, by a Mexican drug cartel. To make matters worse, authorities are lying to try to cover it up.

We as true American citizens should exercise our God-given right to vote, and will exercise this right Nov. 6 to be sure that Obama will not thrive to serve a disastrous second term.

They tried this garbage when President Obama was elected. I'm sure all the manufacturers grinned, when their products flew off the shelves. Fast forward nearly 4 years and they're still using tomfoolery.

Hak,the worshippers are the ones that use "tomfoolery"at every turn. They have gone so far as to blame fox news for the failure of solyndra,the failure of the volt,the fast and furious program(holder's doj selling guns to mexican drug dealers) just to name a few. This blind worship is akin to the brown shirts of hitler!

A suggestion to law abiding

A suggestion to law abiding gun owners-it's not the guns that will be unavailable,it's the ammo. Stock up for a rainy day.

The NRA. Now there's a non

The NRA. Now there's a non partisan group that doesn't twist the facts. A search of their site lists 22 hits for "Fast and Furious" and only 1 for "Operation Wide Receiver" (and that was for a one line mention in an article about "Fast and Furious". It seems the NRA (and Jimmie since I can find no LTE with a complaint) had no concern about the same type of operation under the Bush Administration. This LTE is a typical scare tactic by the NRA. Can they cite any effort by the Obama administration to even remotely keep them from buying and owning guns? No, it's always the omninous "what Obama might do". Futuristic fantasy is no subtsitute for facts, which the NRA and its supporters lack.

the 2nd amendment is just one

the 2nd amendment is just one of many many reasons not to vote for the campaigner-n-chief. when all of his policies are so anti-american and such utter failures, one is really hard pressed to pinpoint which reason trumps the other to vote this idiot out of office.

All completely ignoring that

All completely ignoring that the Obama administration has actually loosened gun regulations. Reality and the right wing never seem to mix, do they?

awe, here is a LTE tickling

awe, here is a LTE tickling the funny bone of all those paranoid 'gun rights' advocates. All these proposals by the NRA to act out of 'fear' only marginalizes their position on gun control. and yes, I would expect that a second term for this President WILL include actions to better regulate guns in America, a position MOST Americans support. 30 round clips for assault rifles, and even assault rifles themselves being regulated to start.

To all the "pooh-poohers"

To all the "pooh-poohers" defending Obama's "innocence" of the allegations that he is, was, and always will be anti-rights under the 2nd Amendment, I say that just because the snake hasn't bitten you yet doesn't mean that it won't. It's got fangs, a rattle, and a nasty attitude, and it rattled quite noisily until it became politically self-defeating to do so. Obama would just as soon ban all handguns, semi-auto rifles and shotguns, and any rifle calibers above .270 if he thought he could do it, with or without our consent.

To maintain otherwise is either naive, or just plain dishonest.

From America's 1st

From America's 1st Freedom:

"If you want a glimpse of a genuine nightmare for America, just look at what’s headed our way.

But unlike a nightmare, this isn’t some fantasy. It’s a very real, very dangerous conspiracy of public deception intended to destroy your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. It’s targeted directly at you.

And it’ll succeed unless you recognize it, understand it, and take action now to stop it.

The best way you could do so is by carrying your new 2012 membership card (see sidebar story on page 29) in your wallet as a symbol of your commitment—and by renewing or upgrading your NRA membership or making a contribution to defending freedom today.

But first, let me give you the facts, evidence, congressional testimony and documented words and deeds that reveal the frightening but irrefutable truth about this sinister plot."

I tried to read the article, I really did. But it is so poorly written, so hysterical, so biased and slanted, that I had to quit.

I don't pay attention to anybody that's into "The sky is falling, the sky is falling" attitude, no matter what side they take.

But just so I know, what does carrying a membership card in a wallet do for anything or anybody?

"Your NRA membership card and your 2012 membership commitment mean that we preserve a 5-4 pro-gun majority on the U.S. Supreme Court."

So what's to stop a Supreme Court judge from resigning right now and Obama appointing a new Supreme Court Judge tomorrow? The answer? Nothing, especially if one dies. And a membership card in a wallet isn't going to stop anything if that happens.

And the sad part is, there are people out there that really believe this nonsense.
