"This Jew will cling to his guns and his religion if (G-d forbid) Barack Hussein Obama is elected President of the United States."

"Having grown up in New York City, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, during the turbulent 1950s and '60s, this Jew--a lifelong Zionist and [NRA] member--saw his neighborhood--in fact, his entire city--practically destroyed by left-liberal policies and ideology."

"This Jew recalls the night when knife- and pipe-wielding, Black Muslims surrounded the brownstone building that housed the clubhouse ... of his Zionist youth movement chapter, and remembers well that it was the group's (legally owned and stored) arsenal of rifles--and willingness to use them in self-defense--that prevented a massacre of young Jews. ..."

"What really disturbed and disillusioned me was your seeming inability to correctly integrate what was going on in the rest of your book ... with what you brought the action to a screeching halt to pontificate about."

"Again, for the benefit of those who haven't read Grave Secrets, Dr. Brennan has been spending a great deal of time, and enduring a great deal of discomfort ... exhuming the bodies of peasants—most of them women and children—who were brutally and genocidally murdered en masse by the uniformed thugs of a Central American dictatorship. The reader shares Tempe's outrage that this kind of thing could happen, although she doesn't seem to have a clue what made it possible, or how to prevent it in the future." ...

"Barack Obama has another ad, this one a TV spot featuring a life member of the NRA, attesting to his support for Second Amendment rights. CBS reports that the ad is running in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. 'Barack Obama supports gun rights, our right to defend ourselves, the Second Amendment,' the narrator says. 'That's the truth.'"

"Is it? Obama's reading of the Second Amendment is so narrow that he sees no constitutional problem with the Washington, D.C., gun ban that was overturned by the Supreme Court or a similar law in Chicago. ... in practice his position is pretty much the same as that of gun controllers who continue to insist that the Second Amendment protects no rights the government need respect." ...

He votes for legislation that will drive up the cost of ammunition and to tax weapons so that the average citizen would not be able to own a firearm. Sure, if they ban the ammunition and make it financially impossible for the average American to own a firearm that is not getting rid of ones right to bear arms."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The National Rifle Association is looking to an unlikely source to criticize Barack Obama's positions on gun issues: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The NRA's Political Victory Fund plans a national newspaper ad reviving a Clinton mailing that accused Obama of waffling on gun issues. Clinton's campaign sent the mailing when the New York senator was challenging Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination. It accuses Obama of changing his statements on gun issues to try to fit whichever audience he was addressing at the time.

The NRA political action committee's ad is scheduled to run Thursday in USA Today.

Obama has said people have the right to bear arms, but that he also supports "commonsense" gun laws.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The National Rifle Association has endorsed U.S. Rep. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-Greenport, in the 20th Congressional District race.

Gillibrand received an "A" rating, which indicates a "solidly pro-gun candidate," according to the NRA Web site.

The rating is based on the congresswoman's voting history on gun-related legislation.

Republican congressional candidate Alexander "Sandy" Treadwell received an "AQ" rating, based on his responses to a questionnaire on gun-related issues, according the NRA Web site.

Both candidates received the highest rating possible, but Treadwell's rating was based solely on answers to a questionnaire because he did not have a voting history, the NRA Web site said.
