Hunters Gunning For Romney

A Wall Street Journal story illustrates how hunters and other gun advocates see difference between the two major presidential candidates.

Outdoors retailer Cabela’s expects a run on guns and ammunition if President Barack Obama is re-elected, much like happened when he first was elected in 2008, because many gun owners expect him to try to crack down on guns. They wanted to stock up on items they thought might be hard to obtain under Obama.

If challenger Mitt Romney wins, however, a Cabela’s spokesman said the Republican supports gun owners, so they likely would spend their money on outdoors clothes instead of ammunition and guns.

There has been little change in federal gun laws in the four years Obama has been in office. His campaign said that the president supports the Second Amendment that gives Americans the right to own guns.
