So joining us now is going Latvia.
Executive vice president of the NRA.

I'm shocked you guys aren't shocked because when I said he was anti Second Amendment you guys said he was pro Second Amendment now you don't act shocked at all the book this is the president.
Before he thought gun owners mattered was for a handgun ban a semi automatic ban.
He was for banning single shot over and under side by side shotguns he was raised in the excise tax on firearms ammunition by 500%.
That's 350 dollars federal tax on a 500 dollar rifle he want to eliminate all right to carry permits in every state.
And it was one of only nine legislators.
In Illinois to vote to jail -- homeowner.
That in the middle of the night used to firearm against the criminal with a rap sheet as long as your arm.
And the president voted to let's go ahead and prosecute that guy that's where cling to your guns and your religion came but he didn't do any of that -- -- I -- as president he hasn't done any of that has -- If he gets a second term.
It's Katy bar the door they're trying to -- this issue to get past this election.

The truth needs them -- for something in America anymore is that why gun sales are still very very strong is the fear of a second Tom and what President Obama would do in a second term is that it is not a story.
