CCRKBA CALLS ON OBAMA TO REPUDIATE, REJECT BRADY CAMPAIGN ENDORSEMENTBELLEVUE, WA If Democrat Barack Obama truly supports gun rights and the Second Amendment, he should immediately repudiate and reject today s endorsement by the anti-gun Brady Campaign, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.
By accepting an endorsement from the nation s leading gun ban organization, said CCRKBA Legislative Affairs Director Joe Waldron, Barack Obama would be declaring to every gun owner in America that he has lied to them all these months during the presidential campaign. If he accepts this endorsement, Obama may as well spit on the Second Amendment.
The Brady Campaign announced its endorsement Monday by noting that Obama and his running mate, anti-gun Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware, will strengthen the Brady Law, and would once again outlaw commonly-owned semi-automatic sport/utility rifles.
The Brady Campaign wants to completely eliminate certain types of firearms, Waldron noted, which is precisely the kind of thing that was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court s Heller decision in June. They claim that Barack Obama is the man who can get that done. This is hardly the kind of endorsement that will earn points among target shooters, hunters and gun collectors, who have harmed nobody and broken no laws.
But the Brady Campaign would make these people criminals on paper simply because they own certain types of firearms, he added. Their endorsement of the Obama/Biden ticket to accomplish that goal is tantamount to a home invasion robbery of every gun owner in the United States.
If Barack Obama thinks gun owners should give him their votes after this endorsement, it is an insult to their intelligence, Waldron observed. That seems to be nothing new, however, after he s had one so-called hunter s and shooter s group shilling for him on the campaign trail, to say nothing of his selection of Joe Biden as his running mate.
Obama should tell the Brady Campaign to get lost, or gun owners will say that loud and clear to him on Nov. 4, Waldron concluded.
