Latest NRA Campaign Ad …

… ‘Obama is Targeting Gun Owners’ (VIDEO)

 

 

As mentioned in a previous Guns.com article, the NRA is stepping up its efforts to help ensure that President Barack Obama is not elected to a second term.  

In its most recent and arguably most effective ‘NObama’ ad, the gun lobby starts off by reminding viewers of Obama’s 2008 campaign promises to gun owners, “I will not take your shotgun away… I will not take your rifle away… I won’t take your handgun away… I am not gonna take your guns away.”

It then quickly shifts to a recurring theme that appears throughout almost all of the NRA TV spots.  That is, Obama’s history of appointing liberal, pro-gun control justices to the Supreme Court, i.e. Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayo.

 

The NRA is ” All In ” on this election and now it’s up to us , the voters . SHOW UP ON TUESDAY … and Bring A Friend .

 

 

Here are some of the key statistics from the NRA, courtesy of the Washington Times:

— By Election Day, the NRA will have issued more than 50 million mailers, phone calls, and personal door-to-door visits, a 60 percent increase over 2010.

— Online advertising will have totaled 320 million impressions on web pages opened by those surfing the Internet, a 531 percent increase over 2010.

The hope is that these efforts will have a similar effect as they did in the 2000 election, when the NRA ran a similar campaign and gun owners figured prominently in the defeat of pro-gun control presidential candidate Al Gore. 

 

 

Let’s ensure that this is money well spent , shall we ?
