Mountains of debt, threats to our sovereignty, chipping away at your rights, chipping away at your freedom. And now, they’re attacking our Second Amendment rights, but you can stop them right now. Defend freedom, defeat Obama.
The National Rifle Association is out with a totally-not-hyperbolic-or-in-any-way-ridiculous ad, and ZOMG!!!!!, it is so super scary. "They" are doing ominous, vague things to you and your freedoms, and the only way to stop "them" is to defeat Obama because otherwise, debt! Sovereignty! Stuff!

Obviously, the NRA has a long list of examples to show exactly how the Obama-led "they" are attacking our Second Amendment rights. Here it is in full:

[Crickets]
Oh, wait, what? The president hasn't actually done anything to chip away at Second Amendment rights? Ha! That's just what he wants you to think. Because not doing anything to take away your rights is part of a chess-jujitsu-Jedi mind trick thing because the president is all sneaky like that. No, really:
“In public, he’ll remind us that he’s put off calls from his party to renew the Clinton [assault weapons] ban, he hasn’t pushed for new gun control laws … The president will offer the Second Amendment lip service and hit the campaign trail saying he’s actually been good for the Second Amendment.”

“But it’s a big fat stinking lie!” the NRA leader exclaimed. “It’s all part of a massive Obama conspiracy to deceive voters and destroy the Second Amendment in our country.”

“Obama himself is no fool. So when he got elected, they concocted a scheme to stay away from the gun issue, lull gun owners to sleep and play us for fools in 2012. Well, gun owners are not fools and we are not fooled,” La Pierre declared.

See? What more proof do you need? That the president hasn't actually done anything to restrict Second Amendment rights proves that he is totally working to restrict Second Amendment rights once he's lulled the nation into a false sense of security.

Don't be lulled, Americans! Act now to defend freedom and stop Obama from not attacking Second Amendment rights before he not-attacks them right out of existence.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
