The above words in the title of this piece where those used by Barack Obama in his email interview with Outdoor Life back last month. Those written words and most of his others on hunting, fishing and Second Amendment are absolute lies meant to deceive the American people!
I have probably shared this story before but I’m going to again because I can. I visited my brother’s house one day about midday several years ago. When I arrived he was attempting to get his son, about four at the time, to eat his lunch, a task nearly every parent has had to deal with at some time or other.
My brother gave his son some simple instructions that he had to eat what was on his plate and then he could get down and play. The two of us migrated to the living room to chat.
After a few moments, my nephew appeared in the living room, big-eyed and sucking for air and explained to his Dad, “I’ve finished eating all of my lunch, Dad, but don’t go look!”
Politicians today have taken on that same childish thinking when it comes to dealing with the voters. They believe, and in most cases can, say anything they want and they know that voters “won’t go look”.
Barack Obama has, throughout this entire campaign, repeated that he supports the Second Amendment. He believes that, providing that the Second Amendment reads and is changed to read the way he wants it to. More on this in a moment.
He has also said, although not as often, that he supports hunters and fishermen. In his email interview with Outdoor Life that I linked to above, Obama says there weren’t too many opportunities to hunt and fish on the South Side of Chicago. He’s never hunted but has fished some while living in Hawaii. He also says he “recognizes” the conservation legacy of hunters and fishermen and what he does as president will advance those goals.
While I did not grow up hunting and fishing, I recognize the great conservation legacy of America’s hunters and anglers. Were it not for America’s hunters and anglers, including the great icons like Theodore Roosevelt and Aldo Leopold, our nation would not have the tradition of sound game management and an extensive public lands estate on which to hunt and fish. There are close to 40 million Americans who hunt and fish. Hunting and Fishing plays an important part in our economy and our heritage as a nation. I am courting sportsmen because my policies, actions and decisions as President will advance the goals of hunters and anglers.
This is where I should insert, but don’t go look!
While Barack Obama was an Illinois State Senator, it seems he did absolutely nothing to support hunting, fishing and outdoor activities, including some programs designed to encourage kids to get outside – even when asked.
Here is a YouTube video of a recent Sportsmen for McCain Rally held in Oley, Pennsylvania. Aaron Hobbs, National Director of Sportsmen for McCain, shares with the crowd on hand the blatant lack of support by Obama toward the Illinois DNR and hunting and fishing opportunity programs.
It makes it a bit difficult to believe that a man with a past such as this can now claim that his “policies, actions and decisions will advance the goals of hunters and fishermen”.
Just a reminder, don’t go look!
I have spent a fair amount of time working to reveal the lies perpetrated by Obama about his support of the right to keep and bear arms. Once again, it is easy to say pretty much what you want to when you believe nobody is going to exert any effort to see if it’s true. The real truth comes from his past, which requires going and looking. I’ll help you out a bit.
If interested, you can begin here by reading past articles I have done on Barack Obama. You may have to scroll down through some of them to find those specifically about guns and gun rights. Also, check “related articles” at the bottom of the page.
Who better to tell us about Obama’s past record on Illinois gun issues than that states biggest gun lobbyist? On October 10, 2008, Rich Pearson, Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association and chief lobbyist for that group, sent a letter to his fellow sportsmen relaying some of his past experiences in dealing with Barack Obama as a state Senator.
Much of the letter confirms much of what I have written in past articles about Obama’s past voting record on gun issues. There are two parts of the letter that need a bit further attention. Part one:
I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obamaâ€™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 Barack Obama.
Coming from a person who I would have to agree has first hand experience in dealing with Obama on gun issues, this confirms all previous reports of his desire to rid his world of guns.
The second part that needs attention will lead us into another article that was sent to me by a reader.
Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other peopleâ€™s money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.
We can add to this list the Handgun Control, Inc., now commonly known as the Brady Campaign.
David T. Hardy of Pajamas Media, earlier this month wrote an article investigating Barack Obama’s past involvement with the Joyce Foundation, of which he was director from 1994-2002. He asks why Obama has kept this so quiet?
During Obama’s tenure, according to Hardy, the Joyce Foundation spent millions of dollars creating and supporting anti-gun organizations, some of which have already been listed. But Hardy spends more time sharing his discovery of Obama’s efforts to target the Supreme Court. The goal? “The planâ€™s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment.”
You must read the article. It is eye opening and definitely frightening. This man is a liar who has been successful in keeping from the public the truth about him and his past.
Barack Obama claims to understand the importance of our hunting and fishing heritage. He also says his “policies, actions and decisions as President will advance the goals of hunters and fishermen”. He claims he is a supporter of an individual’s right to keep and bear arms.
And his biggest hope for his future is that you “WON’T GO LOOK!”
