Barack Obama's Pro-Gun Rights Memo to be Auctioned - 6

President Barack Obama reads and responds to about 15 or so letters each day from everyday Americans. Obama and his aides believe this helps him stay in touch with what his constituents are thinking.
               
On Feb. 18, 2009, he received a letter from 'Craig,' (last name not revealed),  a hunter worried about how Obama would address Second Amendment gun rights if another mass shooting occurred.
               
"Are we law abiding sportsmen going to have to pay the price for another problem?" 'Craig' asked the President.
               
Obama's response, written on White House stationary, was short and resolute: "I believe in the 2nd Amendment, and the rights of Sportsmen like you. Period. Sincerely Barack Obama."
               
That memo -- valued at $6,000 to $7,000 -- will be auctioned in late September by Alexander Historical Autographs of Stamford, Conn., during an online and in-person auction of Americana, rare autographs and historical artifacts.
               
Bill Panagopulos, president of Alexander Historical Autographs, told the Washington Examiner on Sept. 15 that gun rights advocates have expressed a great deal of interest in acquiring the memo, which has added value because there are so few Obama-autographed notes available to purchase.
               
And it's also valuable because it is the only-known written pledge by Obama to protect gun rights -- a potentially valuable "smoking gun" to be trotted out should he consider violating his own promise to 90 million gun-owning constituents.

So many paranoid schizophrenics have come out of the wood works worrying about their big boy toys.

He's a fraud and would do and say anything to keep power. What about the recording of him talking with the Brady campaign chick saying he will take care of it in his second term? What about the the countless times he said there are no good uses for high capacity mags or semi automatic "assault" rifles? Anyone who believes a word he says needs to be put in a mental hospital with the millions who voted for him last time!!!!

I agree DSMbirddog.
Also, I think it's just a ploy so more people will write his name down come November. My money says if he is re elected us law abiding outdoorsman will need to start worrying.

Wow, what a detailed and all encompassing response from President Obama. Of course he believes in the 2nd Amendment. However, I would wager his interpretaion is a lot different than mine or that of some Supreme Court Justices.
