BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov 10, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) (http://www.marke****ch.com/news/story/CCRKBA-Asks-Democrats-Has-Partys/story.aspx?guid={5F8F9E50-9719-4591-94C0-E3E0D19183AC}) -- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today called on Democrats to "be honest" with America's 90 million gun owners and "tell us whether your campaign claims of adherence to the Second Amendment were all lies."
CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said gun owners are legitimately alarmed that president-elect Barack Obama has selected virulent anti-gun-rights Democrat Rahm Emanuel as his White House chief of staff. Emanuel was "point man" on gun ban efforts for the Clinton Administration.
"Scores of Democrats, including Senator Obama and his running mate, Joe Biden, assured voters over the past several months that they 'support' the Second Amendment," Gottlieb stated. "Well, America's gun owners do not merely 'support' the Second Amendment, we live by it every day. We value the right to keep and bear arms, and will zealously protect and defend that right, as much as we value the rest of our fundamental individual civil rights, and that is something Democrats need to understand. To think otherwise is a monumental mistake.
"Mr. Obama, whose history on gun rights is abysmal, appears to be considering his party's most extremist gun control advocates for key positions in his administration," Gottlieb continued. "That is not a sign of goodwill toward gun owners or their rights. It's a red flare warning of high winds and rough weather looming on the political horizon.
"Our nation is in serious trouble," he observed, "and we all need to be working together to solve our fiscal crisis and our energy problems. The fastest way to alienate tens of millions of productive, loyal and hard-working American citizens is to attack one of their constitutionally-protected civil rights.
"We wish our new president smooth sailing in his new ship of state, because we are all along for the ride," Gottlieb said. "But we caution his crew that the eyes of every American gun owner are on you. Democrats have an opportunity and an obligation to prove they mean what they have been saying about protecting the Second Amendment, or to demonstrate to the nation that they truly are the party of extremist gun control."
With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms ( www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation's premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

He doesn't f'king care!

He got what he wanted, and now all of us who had the foresight to vote against his insane, moronic, feel-good BullS__t drivel will have to suffer (along with the rest of the country that has absolutely NO CLUE as to what they have done :rolleyes: )

We are in for a rough ride for the next 4 years folks. Better hang on to your seat because he'll be giving it away soon.

F'king IDIOT.

I will be blaming every single one of you, yes personally, that voted for this freaking mental midget when ALL of our lives become miserable and his (and the rest of the morons at the DNC) socialism rules the country. Comrade. :rolleyes:

It is very simple.

Yes, I believe Obama "supports" the 2nd Amendment, but only his version of it. Unlike past Dems (JFK, Mondale, Humphrey), he only mentions hunting and sporting purposes. Not armed security against tyranny.
As a self-claimed U.S. Constitution Professor, he totally ignores the stated intent of the Framers.

Perhaps his "Civilian Security Force" is his method of addressing the civilian/military nature of the 2A. In other words, HIS civilians will have the guns. The rest of us won't.
