In 11 days we will go to the polls in what will almost surely be the most important election of our lifetimes. We all know that a second term for President Barack Obama would threaten the rights of gun owners in numerous, far-reaching ways. In last Tuesday's presidential debate, President Obama said that he supported a ban on "assault weapons" and implied that he supports restrictions on "cheap handguns" too. The biggest threat, however, would be his potential appointments to the Supreme Court. The future of our Second Amendment rights is clearly on the line.
So, how do we ensure that our Second Amendment rights will be preserved in the future? Quite simply, we vote for pro-gun candidates on November 6! This year, the stakes are too high to leave our civic duty and patriotic responsibility to "the other guy." Please be sure you "Vote Freedom First!" on Tuesday, November 6, and urge your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same.
Other than voting on Election Day (or voting early or by absentee ballot), what more should gun owners do? The answer is very simple--volunteer to work on pro-gun candidates' campaigns to turn out supportive voters on Election Day, November 6.
