    I received this letter today. Here's what the executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association says about his experience with Obama:

    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
    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 and 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.
    Sincerely,
    (original signed)
    Richard A. Pearson
    Executive Director
    Illinois State Rifle Association

    WOW! Thanks for informing us of your real-world experience with this guy. If he becomes President with Pelosi of San Francisco as House Speaker, America will face its greatest challenge. Facing down the Nazis and the Japs AT THE SAME TIME will seem like a walk in the park.

    Our liberties and our country are at stake. Don't believe that "it can't happen here".

    I fear that America will lose its identity and will be unrecognizable after just 4 years. Don't let this happen!

    I always said you vote the party and not the individual. I always thought, that at heart, all democrats were communists, it was only a question of power. Now look who they elect and get behind. Pelosi, Reid, and Obama. They elect the most radical leaders from the most radical parts of the country to implement their agenda then they all get behind them. I am afraid that after next Tuesday I am going to have a very sick feeling in my stomach. That feeling of knowing that our freedom is gone forever and we will never get it back. It won't stop at our borders. We were the lone holdout in the world for freedom. The one country over decades willing to shed blood to spread freedom in the world. There won't be anyone out there to bring freedom to us.

    Obama and the democartic policies and agenda are wrong on so many levels for this or any country; it's hard to single out the 2nd amendment but to all of us here on this site and other law abiding gun owners it of great importance. Tell everyone you can to vote and for those either voting for Obama or on the fence don't push the gun rights issue you'll loose them. Instead address the redistribute the wealth agenda this man has! How many people do you know that work hard for what they have want to spread it around to those that don't want to work and have no work ethic?

    Transparency is very important when people run for office. We've seen it happen so many times in the past where the media will pick up on some juicy piece of dirt about a Presidential candidate or an actual President and they will wear it out until we are all tired of hearing about it.

    Doesn't it make you wonder why letters like this are not getting publicity by the media? I'm telling you guys, it's the media in the US that is pushing Obama for President. McCain doesn't have a chance in hell with the media against him and pulling for Obama. But this gun thing scares the crap out of me, 'cause I'm 54 years old and have been shooting since I was 10. I don't want that taken away, and because the bleeding hearts want guns banned I have no doubt it will one of the first things on Obamas agenda.

    Kevin
