President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign continues its demonization of anyone that stands in its way. Formerly Organizing for America, Organizing for Action, a non-profit, non-partisan(laughable) group the pushes President Obama’s liberal ideology and agenda, has been targeting everything and everyone who is supportive of the right to bear arms.
Back in early April, we interviewed several OFA volunteers who attended a gun buy-back program put on by the Broward County, Florida Sheriff’s Department in Pompano Beach, Florida. Here is an excerpt from the story we filed back then-
When I asked them about the fact that the Senate gun control bill excluded the assault weapons component, the ladies stated that they were “very disappointed” in Senator Reid for not including the ban in the bill.
The ladies believe that Florida’s gun laws are “too laxed” and that we (Florida) should “follow suit of other states and be more strict with gun control laws.”While none of the ladies were card-carrying NRA members, one of them told us that her husband did own a firearm, but that they both didn’t “really like guns.
“Neither of us really like guns, but we got it out of necessity because we are out in the middle of nowhere, and we need protection if a wild animal…”-OFA Volunteer(Shark Tank)
Now OFA has sent out another ‘call-to-arms’ email to protest members of the South Florida Congressional delegation. OFA’s recent email announces that they are organizing “Gun Violence Petition Delivery Events” that will target Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
While OFA says that they will be delivering petitions, petitions which we will assume will be of the anti-assault weapon persuasion, expect a full blown protest with signs, whistles, dancing bears, and perhaps a couple of ‘Big shoe’ clowns to demonstrate outside of these congressional district offices.Keep in mind, even though President Obama continues to trample on the Constitution, this is still the United States of America, and OFA, like everyone else living in the U.S., has the right to gather and protest to their hearts content.
