How many times did we hear President Obama make statements on the campaign trail that he would not take away the rights of gun owners and that he would be supportive of the 2nd Ammendment. I’ll refresh your memory of a few times when he specifically said “I’m not going to take your guns away.” He said it very clearly at rallies in Duryea, Pennsylvania and in Boise, Idaho, among others. He also told a news conference that “Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear…I think people can take me at my word.”
Well, we can now see how much his word is worth. In direct contradiction to the President’s prior statements Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the president will seek to reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms. This is only the beginning. The Obama administration has made it clear that they do not support the Second Amendment at all. Get ready for an all-out attack on our right to bear arms.
What can we do about it? Let these elected officials know that you are not happy and you will not stand for this! Remember, they all want to be re-elected. Let them know how strongly you feel about gun rights and that you will not vote for someone who does not support the 2nd Ammendment. Remind them that when you take guns away from citizens who legally own them and responsibly use them, the only people left with the guns are the criminals. Furthermore, statistics show that the areas of our country that have had gun rights taken away have proven to be the most crime infested parts of America.
This morning I called my Florida Senators and Congressmen as well as President Obama. I would encourage you to do the same. You can call the President at the following numbers: 202-456-1111 and 202-456-1414. You can look up the contact information for your Senators HERE. You can look up the contact information for your Congressmen HERE.
Again, express to them your complete disdain and ABSOLUTE REJECTION of all GUN BANS and challenge them to be willing to fight for and defend our Constitution and what it stands for. Do this for America!
