beware the AHSA!

Postby howhill1 » Sat Aug 23, 2008 3:31 pm

The American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA) is once again trying to confuse hunters into believing two bold lies:  that the NRA does not support hunting, and that AHSA and the Sierra Club do. 
In a report released on August 21, AHSA makes the ridiculous argument that NRA is anti-hunting because NRA does not support the same candidates that Sierra Club and other environmental groups support. The problem is, these groups rate candidates on their radical environmental record, not on their support for hunting or for gun owners' rights. In fact, the politicians endorsed by the Sierra Club are a "Who's Who" of the most anti-gun politicians in American history. Gun-ban advocates like Barack Obama, John Kerry, Charles Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Frank Lautenberg, Jack Reed, and Teddy Kennedy have all been endorsed by the Sierra Club. Since Teddy Kennedy wants to ban almost all ammunition used by hunters in America, it is impossible to see how the Sierra Club is supporting hunters by endorsing him.

I so agree i noticed they have ramped up their rhetoric big time.I think they hope to fool a lot of people.I have requested that their ads be removed from several sites i visit.

It`s critical to get the word out to everyone, anyplace you frequent. It can`t be taken for granted that people know they`re a front for anti`s.
I`m an NRA Endowment-Life member, and although I don`t agree with many of NRA`s positions, they`re the biggest political force we currently have, and so, are effective.
