Fact-Checking the Fact-Checking Fact-Checkers

There's a lot of "fact checking" going back and forth regarding the NRA's recently launched ad campaign against Barack Obama, between the gun rights community and the Obama media machine.

My take is that the NRA, by virtue of Obama's past words and actions, has the truth solidly on their side in this matter, but they chose their verbiage poorly, allowing the Obama camp some wiggle room in their rebuttal attempts.

That aside, it pretty much boils down to this.

Anyone who would have you believe that Barack Obama is anything but entirely hostile toward the Second Amendment rights of American citizens is as believable as a PETA press release titled, "Foie Gras - The New Miracle Meat".
