Of course, pointing it out is getting tiresome.
President Obama on Monday tried to undercut National Rifle Association leaders and appeal directly to their membership, claiming gun owners support the “common-sense” gun control measures he’s proposed — and urging those supporters to “keep the pressure” on Congress.
Oddly enough, on the way home from a long day at work, I was listening to this Sunday’s Guntalk podcast. Tom Gresham noted the above lie that has been coming from His Awesomness’s lips for the last few days, and noted that NRA internal polling puts member approval of their policies and actions so far at 96%. While all gun owners may not agree, I have yet to hear anyone at a gun shop or a gun show in the last 30 days say anything along the lines of “Gee Irv, maybe putting limits on how many rounds we can have in a magazine is a good thing.” or “Hey, I want to register my guns with the ATF!” Instead, I have heard people say that our government has now reached that line in the sand that they’d better think thrice before crossing.
Don’t buy the lies, and don’t let President I Luvs Me Some Skeets try to split off one group from the rest. We all hang together, or we will all hang separately. The choice is ours.
