A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

CHICAGO, Oct 15, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ — The following is the text of an open letter to the nation’s hunters and sportsmen issued today by Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson:
Fellow Sportsman,
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.

Exit Question

Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner?

  1. I’m getting me some guns, by the way. Never had one, but I think it’s high time. Gonna learn how to shoot them, too.

    Not only may guns come in handy amid the massive civil unrest that will come to characterize daily life in this country before too long, but I figure the only defense against the commies taking everything away from us is to stop them from taking that which they most want to proscribe, our ability to defend ourselves from them.

    Anyone who’s against Americans’ right to defend themselves in their own homes is no American.

    A Springfield XD is on my Christmas list! 🙂

    I’ve seen several leftards making Liddy out to be a terrorist because of his admonition to kill BATF who come to take your guns away – they don’t realize that THAT’s the reason the Founders wanted us armed in the first place — to protect us from our government!

    Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition!
