    CHICAGO, Oct 15, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The following is the text of an open letter to the nation's hunters and sportsmen issued today by Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson:

    Fellow Sportsman,
    Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association.

    I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama'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 does Barack Obama.

    Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month.

    Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.

    Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?

    And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger - a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And let's not forget Obama's pal George Soros - the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UN's international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.

    Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other people'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.

    Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?

    By now, I'm sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called "American Hunters and Shooters Association(AHSA)" talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear - everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash. The AHSA is headed by a group of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be.

    In closing, I'd like to remind you that I'm a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nation's outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants - so long as people are willing to give it to him.
    That's the Barack Obama I know.

    The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. Founded in 1903, the ISRA has represented the interests of millions of law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.

    chessney........This Stuff??? A press-released statement from a "real" and respected member of the shooting community. It is obvious that 1) You do not own a gun and, 2) You are not a shooter and 3) You don't know what the words "think for yourself" even mean.

    Imagine this - a mohamed loving arab masquerading as a black man and he doesn't like guns. It's all funny right up till he is elected - and all because shooters in places like PA / OH / Fl / Ill / Minn / Ia / WV /, etc are too lazy to vote.

    Just wait until the votes are counted for PA....bet Obama will win the entire state by approx. 25,000 votes with approx. 750,000 total votes.

    The state of PA issues over 1 million resident hunting licenses and yet the state stays in the hands of anti-gun liberals.

    Laziness/apathy has no boundries.

    cheeeeeeeeeeeessney.......You're an extremely poor excuse for an outright liar. Come the day that you actually begin to think for yourself, own a gun or become a shooter is the day that we all fly to the moon for a chucky cheese.

    The really SAD thing is this guy Bill(ziggy) DOES own a gun or two.

    I can understand someone that, doesn't want to own a firearm, doesn't like firearms, thinks firearms go off by themselves, as if you don't need a person to pull the trigger, just thinks we are all a bunch of poor slobs that "cling to our guns and religion." I can undertsand them. I don't agree with them but I understand them thinking that way. At least they have the balls to take a stand.

    What I CAN'T understand and have NO respect for is the person that ENJOYS the right to own a firearm, but is NOT willing to stand up and stand next to someone that is fighting to have that right protected. That type of person is just a hanger on. Someone that says "whatever". That infrigement on our 2nd Amendment doesn't effect me, so what do I care.

    THAT is the weak spineless kind of person that I don't understand and could NEVER respect.
