Gun rights activist blasts Obama

June 8, 2009 by  

Gun rights activist blasts ObamaA newly promoted senior gun rights activist has said the administration’s actions conflict with traditional American attitudes on life and the right to possess arms.

John M. Snyder who was recently named senior rights activist in Washington by Shotgun News, has pointed to Obama’s poor public record on personal gun rights and criticized his Supreme Court nomination saying Judge Sonia Sotomayor is "on record" stating the Second Amendment rights do not apply to states.

"[T]he Sotomayor nomination is just the latest Obama action to undermine Americans’ gun rights, and he hasn’t yet been president for even five months," says Snyder.

"Earlier, he indicated he was going to push for Senate ratification of what is really an anti-American gun owner treaty," he adds.

Snyder is referring to the Inter-American Convention Against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, and Other Related Materials (CIFTA) which, among other things, bans production of arms which do not comply with the convention’s regulations, and which the U.S. signed in 1997.

He therefore calls on Americans to contact their representatives or senators to complain about Obama’s actions.

In recent months, Attorney General Eric Holder has also omade statements suggesting the government will push for stricter gun control, including banning semi-automatic rifles and enforcing the federal law against firearm purchases by non-resident American citizens.
