NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre views 6 November, 2012 as the next decisive day in American history.
"There can be no question that the Second Amendment, as we know it, may cease to exist should Barack Obama win a second term in office," LaPierre wrote in a column that appeared at Townhall.com .
LaPierre cited not only Operation Fast & Furious, where the Obama Administration allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. Some of the guns were used in the murder of a Customs and Border Patrol agent.
"If he wins reelection, Obama could have the opportunity to tip the fragile balance of the Supreme Court to an anti-gun majority that will reverse the recent Heller and McDonald decisions that affirmed the Second Amendment as an individual right," LaPierre also wrote, discussing the implications a second Obama terms could have on the Supreme Court.
LaPierre ended with a call to action.
"This is why I’m asking every NRA member, every gun owner, and every patriotic American to view next year’s election through the lens of freedom."
