#gunvote – Now The President Tells Us…

NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- Recently on the campaign trail in Iowa, the president told his audience: “Trust matters. Iowa, you know me. I say what I mean and mean what I say. You could take a videotape of the things I say, (from) 10 years ago, 12 years ago, and you’d say this is the same guy.”

Since he insists, take a look for yourself, above.

Then look below the video clip for a questionnaire that Obama answered in 1996, where he stated his support for banning “assault weapons” and for banning the “manufacture, sale and possession” of handguns. This is not the NRA questionnaire that Obama once claimed was filled out by a staff member. This questionnaire came from the Independent Voters of Illinois Independent Precinct Organization, and clearly displays Obama’s own handwriting on the very first page.

The closer we get to election day, the more Obama seems to be willing to own up to his true ideological leanings. Maybe he’s trying to rally his core base, since the questionnaire tracks his admission in the second debate that he wants to pursue a new ban on modern sporting rifles and new restrictions on handguns. This all comes now despite years of protestations to the contrary.

The community of gun owners has known for years that Obama is harboring a secretive agenda to pursue new restrictions on our rights if he wins a second term. The media has called this notion crazy, wacky, a “conspiracy theory,” despite the fact that Sarah Brady herself told the Washington Post that Obama personally assured her he was pursuing new gun control policies “under the radar.” But now Obama is admitting to it, on the record.

So when Obama says that voters should look at what he has said in the past, they should listen. Stay informed about this election all the way to the finish line, and make sure your friends, family and fellow gun owners do the same.

    obama hates the Bible because he is a muslim.his koran tells him to kill innocents.the Bible says to love your enemys unless they try and murder you for saving your families lives.also it states to all religions that Christ will grind all of His enemys into dust.the koran,writen by a human tells his followers a different story.my vote goes for Jesus Christ on who wins

    Well, he can count off over 4 million NRA member votes, and anyone else who owns guns and want to keep them.

    Yeah, go back 10 years, he is indeed spewing the same ol' socialist crap. Lie on every issue. Say whatever turns on the morons he's standing in front of. And, all the while, working towards the United Socialist States of America.
