    Successful, yes. Truthful, no. The NRA's real business is making people scared enough to keep doing what they say, such as saying that since there's no Obama anti-gun proposal in Congress now, that PROVES that there WILL be one. Puh-leeze.

    The NRA owns both sides of aisle in Washington and are one of the most successful lobbying groups in the history of the US. Nobody is going to take our guns away. The NRA and other pro-gun lobbies just keep banging that drum to bring in the cash.

    I keep hearing how Obama is so anti-gun.

    Can someone point to what he has done to earn this label?

    It's apparent that Mr. Romney doesn't have deeply-held convictions about gun rights. I wish he did. That said, however, it's safe to assume he'd do more to protect the rights of citizens than the incumbent... when he doesn't have an election looming I believe Obama would be more "activist" in furthering the agenda of his anti-gun supporters.

    I'd never support anyone who is outspokenly anti-gun, but the economy and our huge debt, and the size of our bloated government, is issue #1 in 2012.
