Over the past 7 years, a popular saying in the firearms industry has been, “Obama has been the best gun salesman we could have!” The President’s anti-gun rheteroic and actions have produced record gun sales that will no doubt continue, and likely increase substantially, as law-abiding Americans anticipate a win for Hillary this November.
As this article in the Washington Free Beacon points out, “Both President Obama and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have publicly expressed support for Australian-style gun confiscation measures. Clinton has also said the Supreme Court was wrong on Second Amendment gun rights protections…”
Let me repeat that: support for gun confiscation and wrong on Second Amendment gun rights.
“There is no doubt that the string of record monthly gun sales have been driven by the anti-rights agenda of the Obama Administration and the millions of dollars that Michael Bloomberg has spent assaulting the Second Amendment,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, said. “Now add to that the fact that Hillary Clinton has doubled down in attacking gun ownership in her White House campaign and it is no surprise that we continue to hit new gun sales records.”
I repeat a third time: confiscation.
Regardless of your political stripes, remember that when you go to the ballot box in November.
There are 2 pro-gun candidates in the race. We blogged about Donald Trump’s position on the Second Amendment. The NRA endorsed Trump last month.
What about Libertarian Gary Johnson, the former Governor of New Mexico?
Johnson said in 2012, “I’m one of those who believe the bumper sticker: If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. The first people who are going to be in line to turn in their guns are law-abiding citizens. Criminals are going to be left with guns. I believe that concealed carry is a way of reducing gun violence.”
On the Second Amendment, Johnson believes the right to bear arms is a basic Constitutional right and expresses the democratic principle of self-defense against tyrannical government.
There are many issues in this messy and crazy election, but on our guns and the Second Amendment, the choices are crystal clear.
