Facts about gun rights

Dear Editor:

I Received an NRA mailing today about gun rights.

The mailing endorses the reelection of Steve Southerland and intimates that the Obama administration is anti gun.

So here are the facts concerning that false supposition.

  In February of 2009 Outdoor Life received a letter from a hunter worried about how President Obama would address 2nd Amendment gun rights if another mass shooting would occur. Not sure which shooting he was referring to. "Are we law abiding sportsmen going to have to pay the price for another problem"? President Obama’s response written on White House stationary was short and resolute.

 "I believe in the 2nd Amendment and the rights of sportsmen like you. Period."

     Sincerely Barack Obama
