Obama's anti-gun hate speech

Democrats apparently know no bounds in their quest for gun control.

The Second Amendment and the right to own guns and firearms by law abiding American citizens must not be overthrown or defeated by the current Obama administration.

President Barack Obama and his conspiring drive-by news media have ruthlessly attacked and smeared the tea party, conservatives and talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Mike Savage, Glenn Beck and other voices of freedom and truth.

Now, Mr. Obama will stop at nothing to attack the Constitution and anything or anyone that stands in his way.

There is no excuse or explanation for such uncalled for and savage hate speech being leveled against gun owners and red-blooded Americans. We, the innocent, are being treated like law breakers. Our right to own firearms must not be infringed upon by the current administration.
