DNC Now Attempting to Silence Gun Owners

URGENT: I got a response back already.  Do not use their e-mailers, as they send attachments along that do contain Obama’s legal threat, along with all the material from FactCheck.org and various other sources.  They do send your content, but you don’t want the baggage that goes along with it.

The Democratic National Committee is now taking up a petition to get NRA’s ads off the air.  I have filled in my information so you don’t have to:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please stop broadcasting the misleading and phony NRA attack ad against Barack Obama on your stations.

Time and again, Barack Obama has defended the right to bear arms created by the Constitution. However, this shameful ad misrepresents Barack’s position on illegal guns and tries to scare voters with incorrect information about his stance on the issue.

This NRA ad is a lie, and is not fit for public broadcast.

The public airwaves are no place for this kind of hateful and misleading trash. I hope you will stop broadcasting this deceptive ad on your station and prevent the level of discourse to be lowered by the lies it presents.

Please take this ad off the air at once.

Will the blue dogs in the party condemn this action?  Or will they stand by and take it from Obama?  If they want gun owner support, this isn’t how to go about it.  I will say that at least the DNC didn’t threaten their broadcast licenses.  Since they allow editing, I have taken their form and translated it to this:

Dear Sir or Madam,

Please do not give into intimidation and threats from the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign to cease running NRA’s ads.  As an independent voter, a gun owner, sport shooter, and an NRA member, I find it offensive that the Democratic Party has chosen to attempt to silence my views.  Please keep running the ads by the National Rifle Association.  They speak for me, and many other gun owners who will not be voting for Barack Obama this coming November.

Thank You,

Langhorne, PA

That should be a nice middle finger extended to the Democratic National Committee.  Unfortunately, they ask for a donation after you submit, and “Piss Off” is not among the options.

  1. “Time and again, Barack Obama has defended the right to bear arms created by the Constitution.”

    Not that I really needed an excuse to go to the liquor store on a friday afternoon, but this does help.

  2. Why does Barack Obama want a Civil War so bad?

    He will create one. I don’t think that he will, but he will create one.

  3. Subject: Do not give in to the Intimidation by Barack Obama

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Cut and paste of Sebastian’s text paraphrased a bit
    Ending with:

    I support the whole Constitution and Bill of Rights

    Thank You,

  4. Thanks Sebastian,

    I will also be sending off emails to those folks. I may use the DNC emailer and look up those address myself and send some. The DNC forms will be used just to mix some in there…..tighten the screws a bit.

  5. Are they seriously sending out mailings saying that the Constitutional scholar thinks the Constitution CREATES rights?! I would say that classifies him as a domestic enemy of the Constitution.

    Maybe adding the following self-evident truths from another founding document to the mailing might be helpful in pointing out that Rights are endowed by our Creator, and Governments are instituted to secure those pre-existing, God-given Rights.

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

  6. This is a great opportunity to make gun control and the second amendment a larger part of the presidential campaign. Obama and the DNC don’t want undecided voters in states like Ohio, Michigan and PA to be aware of his real record on second amendment issues and now thanks to the ineptness of the Democratic party those voters will know. Ha ha ha

  7. I’d say yes, but if you look at FDR’s record, and even Lincolns, there’s been abuses and usurpation going on for a long time. But yeah, I won’t say in public some of the things I think about this guy after this bullshit.

  8. It also occurs to me, on occasion, that no one could possibly be that tin-eared — that we are being offered a series of studied provocations.
