In less than one week after the Colorado massacre that left 12 dead at the hands of An AR-15 assault rifle, the NRA sent out a letter soliciting funds from it.
“The future of your Second Amendment rights will be at stake,” the letter said. “And nothing less than the future of our country and our freedom will be at stake.” Bloomberg Business Week 8/7/2012
The letter also claims that Obama’s re-election would result in the “confiscation of our firearms” and potentially a “ban on semi-automatic weapons.” The suspect in the Aurora, Colorado killings, 24-year-old James Holmes, had four semi-automatic weapons at the theater, police said.
The NRA’s Executive VP, LaPierre Reveals, has also recently stated that he believes there’s an “Obama Conspiracy” To Fool Gun Owners” and “Repeal Second Amendment.” The only two changes President Obama’s made to gun laws since taking office is to allow them on Amtrak trains and in federal parks.
