(CNN)—The National Rifle Association is taking aim at Sen. Barack Obama’s ‘bitter’ comment in a new ad, claiming the Illinois senator wants to ban shotguns and rifle’s commonly used for hunting.
“I learned that Barack Obama supports new tax on my guns and ammo,” Karl Rusch of Virginia says. “But it’s not just new taxes that Barack Obama wants. You can believe it. He also supports a ban on the shotguns and rifles most of us use for hunting.”
Obama has called for permanently reinstating the assault weapons ban, and voted for a 2005 amendment placing restrictions on rifle ammunition that is “designed or marketed” to be armor-piercing, but has not called for confiscation of rifles.
Watch: Obama speaks about his view on gun control
Joe Biden told supporters at a campaign event in Virginia Saturday they need not worry about their guns being confiscated under an Obama-Biden administration.
“I guarantee you, Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns. So don't buy that malarkey,” Biden said Saturday. “They're going to start peddling that to you. I got two and if he tries to fool with my Berretta, he's got a problem.”
In the NRA’s ad, “Hunter,” Rusch concludes, “No politician is going to take away my guns and ammo. You don’t have to be bitter to know Barack Obama isn’t the kind of change we need.”
Despite the NRA’s strong criticism of Obama, the group has not endorsed John McCain for president.
McCain addressed NRA members at their convention in May, telling them he hasn’t agreed with them on “every issue,” but “those disagreements do not detract from my long record of support for the Second Amendment.”
This is McFlipflop in disguise. There is noway he and the rat with lipstick wiill win
Obama flip flops on everything else, why should we believe him on the 2nd Admendment rights???????????????????
PLEASE FACT CHECK!.................and Palin had a nerve to say Obama is a LIER. Palin and McCain needs medication just to be able to TELL the truth...
WE WILL LIE OUR WAY INTO THE WHITE HOUSE....THAT"S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN STEAL VOTES AND WIN....
Question: Since Palin is suppose to meet with several leaders this week, does that mean next week they will INCREASE her Foreign Policy experience? Just wanted to know before I hear her or McCain tell this LIE while giving one of their note card speeches.
I McCain WILL approve this LIE tooooooooooooo.
A lie a day from the Republicans just to stay off the subject. Like the
economy!!!!! The Republicans find ONE NRA, EVANGELICAL, CATHOLIC and publicize one -head of-'s ignorant opinion!!!!!
So basically the stratergy is to lie your way to helping the Regpugs into power – then what? Another 4 years of the same reckleness and gloom! Better be careful what you wish for, NRA or no NRA!
Another day, another lie.
More of the same with John McKane!
Lie, Lie, Lie... Deny, Deny, Deny! These people are getting more amusing by the minute!
Hopefully the majority of Americans will not buy into this crap!
Oh go shoot a moose!
even if a president made his soul purpose banning guns or abortion there is no way it could happen. even if they made it their only priority. it could never ever happen. its the biggest non issue next to abortion. and people need to worry about a veteran who cares nothing about veterans benifits.
so, in short – republicans lie to get your vote, and democrats give you specific policies in the hopes that you'll agree with them to get your vote.
who has more honor?
I don't want to hear anything about guns, especially now.
DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION DISTRACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Republicans are grasping at straws. How low and pathetic can they get. The taxpayers will fund the top tier debtors in this country and all I hear from McCain's camp is garbage and meaningless crap out of the blue.
How can you tax something you banned? Oh, it's all lies...
Well of course he wants to ban guns. He wants to make sure that everyone cannot legally purchase firearms. Never mind that he won't do a thing about all the gangs who can still obtain them ILLEGALLY (that's a fine example of community activism there Barry)!
Besides, if more decent Americans had guns it'd be more difficult when Barry's close friend Bill Ayers goes back to bombing things.
And no, it's Obama who'll do anything for a vote. Get him to stand up and speak (without his teleprompter) about just one plan he has. That'll be an hour of dead air (not including the multitude of umms and ahhs he'll say).
Let that suede top just try and take my gun. He'll learn just how hard I can "cling" to my gun and my religion.
I'm taking my chances witha 3rd party candidate. McCain and Obama have too many lobbyists around to benefit me. Nader or Baldwin for me
The NRA loves it when mentally disturbed college students go on a rampage.
Just when you think McCain/Palin can't possibly attack on anything else, theypull something out of the hat no matter how ridiculas they look. Afterall, McCain DID invent the Blackberry. I'm still laughing about that one.
I wish Obama DID want to ban guns!
The NRA knows very well that Obama has said just the opposite.
I'm already tired of the lies from Republicans. Check out Sarah Palin – she's full of them, along with McCain.
What a disgusting woman – charging women in her little town for rape kits! How ANTI-Woman can you get?
Nice try NRA but I think everyone knows better!
The lies coming from the McCain Palin camp are toooooooooo
numberous to mention!!!!!!!
Like Chris Rock Says, just make each bullet cost $5000 dollars. That way there would be no innocent bystanders. If someone gets shot, you know they deserved it.
no one is going to take your guns away–vote obama/biden if you want this country to survive
