Another Blue Dog Defends Obama’s Gun Record


John Tester has come out in defense of Barack Obama’s history calling for gun control, claiming that while Obama’s entire career is littered with support of gun bans and plans to shut down gun shops, he can be trusted to support gun rights now. What does he base that assumption on? Talking to him once. As opposed to years of calls for gun bans.

The residents of Montana need to ask why John Tester is supporting Obama’s proposals to do things like shut down gun shops within five miles parks and schools. I made a map of what this would mean to just once city in Montana – Helena.

It would actually be worse than this since no doubt my Google search didn’t likely turn up every school and park. However, it’s hard to imagine how it could get much worse without forcing every gun shop out into a cornfield.

I assume the only reason guys like Tester and Gov. Schweitzer are making these bizarre claims about how gun owners can ignore years of anti-gun positions by Obama is because someone thinks that Montana is in play or has targeted it as the fly-over state that Obama wants to unexpectedly win. I have no doubt that any Democrat who is willing to lie to voters in order to hand the state to Obama will be rewarded handsomely if he takes the White House.

For the Blue Dogs who are actively lying about Obama’s background on guns, voters need to show them the boot. It doesn’t matter what they’ve been promised, there’s no excuse for ignoring decades of support for extreme gun control just to be pet on the head by the White House someday.

UPDATE: This comes as Obama restated his support for banning rifles in his acceptance speech.  (Link stolen from Uncle.)

BTW – If any Montana residents want help composing a Letter to the Editor today for their local papers challenging these defenses of Obama’s gun banning history, then feel free to ask.  I can draft one for you if you aren’t sure what to say, and then you just put your name, phone number, email, and send it off.

    Tester and Schweitzer should remember part of Montana history, 3-7-77.
    I am a Havre, Montana native by the way. I know who Tester is. Havre and Big Sandy are about 35 miles apart.
