Anti-gun elites are hypocrites with armed security

From President Obama to Michael Bloomberg, Dianne Feinstein, Michael Moore, Rosie O'Donnell and the rest of the media political elites, the whole time they're attacking our right to own a gun they're enjoying armed security for themselves. They're trying to reduce our ability to defend ourselves, even as they retain armed protection for themselves. What hypocrites.

If Obama strengthens his hand in November by winning just a handful of key U.S. Senate and House races, he'll have more power, more leverage, more allies and more opportunity to dismantle the Second Amendment than any president in American history.

He'll be able to misuse the federal bureaucracy to target, harass and silence gun owners, just as the administration has done to journalists at the Associated Press, Fox News and CBS -- or by unleashing the IRS, OSHA the EPA or whoever else they can think of to intimidate their critics.

He'll have the votes in the Senate to win ratification of the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, which could set the stage for a national gun registry to be shared with foreign governments.

He'll have the majorities on Capitol Hill to ram his gun-ban agenda down the throats of the American people regardless of what the people support.

Our firearms and freedoms have never been in greater danger -- or needed people more to stand and fight to protect them -- than right now.
