To help encourage hunters and shooters to vote absentee if they will be traveling on business or in the field on Election Day, NSSF has developed a poster for shooting ranges and retailers that encourages absentee voting. With a simple headline, “Before you hunt — Vote,” the poster is a great reminder that directs the audience to www.nssf.org/VoterEd for access to information about absentee voting in every state. You can help: Download, print and hang the poster prominently at your business or gun club to remind your staff, customers, or fellow gun owners.

Before you hunt, Vote

Or is he just waiting until he has the votes in congress before doing what he would really like to do with respect to guns? Listen closely to his answer to a question he took at a Duryea, PA, glass factory.  After using the same tired code words of “gun safety” to describe ending private sales at gun shows, shutting down gun dealers as he proposed in 2000 and taking a swipe at the NRA, he lets slip what is the only thing that would keep a President Obama from doing what his record clearly shows he would like to do if he could.

Obama claims the NRA opposes “gun safety” measures but it is the NRA that has done more to promote real gun safety than any other organization – pro-rights or anti-rights. Through the Eddie Eagle program, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, millions of children have been taught the basic message that if you see a gun, “Stop, Don’t Touch, Leave the Area, Tell an Adult.” Through various other programs of the NRA, millions of new gun owners have learned the safe handling and use of a firearm.

It’s clear Barack Obama knows nothing about what is real gun safety and he is no friend of gun owners.
