Obama Supports a BAN on Shotguns, Rifles, and a TAX on Ammunition

The NRA is hitting Obama HARD on the second amendment, a hit that Obama is attempting to censor. is airing a video citing Obama's background when it comes to hunting, let alone self defense. The video and fact-check is as follows:

*Obama voted to ban hundreds of rifles and shotguns commonly used for hunting and sport shooting
Illinois Senate, SB 1195, 3/13/03

*Obama endorsed a ban on all handguns

OBAMA is NOT the candidate for more personal freedom!

"Barack Obama would be the most anti-gun president in our nation's history. That's the truth,” concluded Cox. “NRA-PVF has the facts on our side. No amount of running from or lying about his record and then intimidating news outlets in the hope of deceiving American gun owners and hunters is going to work. Those strong arm tactics may work in Chicago, but not in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and not as long as NRA-PVF has anything to say about it."
