In the wake of a secret 1998 recording of then Illinois State Sen. Barack Obama pushing for, among other things, gun control, National Rifle Association chief lobbyist Chris W. Cox told The Daily Caller that President Obama opposes the Second Amendment, and will try to do whatever he can to limit firearm ownership in America.
“Sadly, this isn’t surprising,” Cox wrote in an email. “Barack Obama is and always has been anti-gun, anti-hunting and anti-self-defense. Anyone who has the audacity to claim that as president, Barack Obama has been pro-gun is intentionally ignoring the 800 lb gorillas in the room – two lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court who will vote against the Second Amendment for generations, participation in the United Nations gun control treaty, and complicity in the deadly Fast and Furious scandal that will kill countless innocent Americans and Mexicans for decades. Freedom can’t afford four more years of this hostile administration.”
