Obama, Executive Experience, and Guns

David Hardy, a co-author of the amicus brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in the DC vs Heller case by Academics for the Second Amendment, and Gun Blogger Summer Camp participant has unearthed some interesting facts about how Obama has used what little executive experience in his resume.

Posted on PajamasMedia:

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama must demonstrate executive experience, but he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the Joyce Foundation, a billion dollar tax-exempt organization. He has one obvious reason: during his time as director, Joyce Foundation spent millions creating and supporting anti-gun organizations.

There is another, less known, reason.

During Obama’s tenure, the Joyce Foundation board planned and implemented a program targeting the Supreme Court. The work began five years into Obama’s directorship, when the Foundation had experience in turning its millions into anti-gun “grassroots” organizations, but none at converting cash into legal scholarship.

The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment...
If you any illusions about Obama's stance on firearms, you must read this article. You will see how Barack Obama, the "Constitutional Scholar", attempted to unduly influence the court system. Barack Obama has worked very hard to take away our right to keep and bear arms, he will continue to do so as President.

David Hardy produced the documentary "In Search of the Second Amendment". From the back cover of the DVD:
It took four years to produce. It will take two hours to watch. But at the end you will have a full understanding of the American Bill of Rights, and of the role the Second Amendment plays in it.
This is a must have DVD for supporters of our right to keep and bear arms.
