Youth outdoor advocate and Two Million Bullets founder John Annoni Flew from Allentown, PA last week to join some 70,000 fellow National Rifle Association members at the organization’s annual convention, in St. Louis, last where acres of firearms and gear were on display and where politics was never far from anyone’s thinking.
For the NRA, which opposes any restrictions on gun ownership and President Barack Obama’s re-election, the Second Amendment right to bear arms is a top concern.
The NRA is ringing the alarm to its members that “all of the rights we’ve worked so hard to defend….could be lost if Barack Obama is re-elected.” Signs posted at the convention said “Trigger The Vote.” Buttons for the election fight said “All In!” A phrase John has heard time and time again about the fight to help youth and society become safer through gun education and to protect america’s shooting and hunting culture. “Our Bullet campaign is set up to prove we all care about what’s happening to our youth, and outdoor and shooting heritage in America. I won’t stop until I know our children will have the opportunites I have had.” It’s time Camp Compass Academy and the Two Million Bullet movement become noticed by the people running for political office.
Only Republican presidential candidates — Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Perry — addressed the convention.
“We need a President who will enforce current laws, not create new one that only serve to burden lawful gun owners,” Romney told the convention Friday. “We need a President who will stand up for the rights of hunters and sportsmen, and those seeking to protect their homes and their families. President Obama has not; I will.” Well, Mr. Romney pull up a chair and let’s get down to business.
