Video Script: The right to bear arms is one of the fundamental ideals on which our nation was founded. Hardworking, law-abiding Americans have for generations enjoyed this freedom in their communities and with their families. But Barack Obama believes that many Americans simply 'cling' to guns in times of economic distress. Speaking behind closed doors to an audience of San Francisco donors Barack Obama said "they cling to guns or religion …. as a way to explain their frustrations" Obama's anti-gun record is long. In 2004, he voted against legislation drafted to protect homeowners from prosecution in cases where they used a firearm to halt a home invasion. In 2003, he voted in support of legislation that would have effectively banned most of the privately held hunting shotguns, target rifles, and black powder rifles in Illinois. And in 1996, Obama supported a ban on the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns. But now Obama's running for President and claims no knowledge of this, even though his handwriting is all over it. Barack Obama: Out of touch with American values. Not ready to lead.
