ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEWS CONFERENCE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
INTERNET POWERHOUSE ANDY MARTIN KEEPS ROILING THE 2010 ILLINOIS U.S. SENATE CAMPAIGN BY CONTINUING "KIRK WEEK" AND PROCLAIMING MARK KIRK AN “ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT EXTREMIST”
MARTIN SAYS A KIRK PROPOSAL WOULD HAND OBAMA STOOGE ERIC HOLDER THE POWER TO BAN GUNS IN AMERICA
(CHICAGO)(June 11, 2009) Internet Powerhouse Andy Martin will continue "Kirk Week" as Martin maintains his U. S. Senate campaign in attack mode with a series of Illinois news conferences. Today, Thursday, June 11th (details below) Martin proclaims Representative Mark Kirk an “anti-Second Amendment extremist.”
“I am just amazed,” says Martin, “that Senator John Cornyn, who supports gun rights in Texas, would come to Illinois and ask Republicans to nominate a gun control nut for the U. S. senate.
“Mark Kirk is an anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment extremist. In the current congress he has sponsored a law that would empower Obama stooge Eric Holder with the authority to ‘ban’ people from owning firearms. This is nothing les than a totalitarian, not to say unconstitutional, proposal.
“The Illinois State rifle Association considers Kirk anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment.
ISRA ALERT – REP. MARK KIRK NEEDS TO HEAR FROM GUN OWNERS
As many of you may know, 10th District Congressman Mark Kirk is certainly no friend of the law-abiding firearm owner. Over the years, he has supported every gun bill to come down the pike. Most recently , he sponsored federal legislation that would revive and toughen the Clinton “assault weapons” ban.
3. Politely ask Kirk direct questions about his views on private firearm ownership. Ask him why he introduced the legislation renewing the Clinton gun ban. Ask Kirk if he knows that there are over 1.5 million law-abiding firearm owners in Illinois and whether he realizes that, as either governor or senator, he would have the obligation to represent their interests.
“As a blog posting at IllinoisCarry.com has said:
It is indeed sad to see RINO Mark Kirk's name right up there in HR2159 with such names as Charles The Tax Cheat Rangle and Carolyn Second Amendment Denier McCarthy. A man is known by the company he keeps.
“Enough. The liberal Chicago news media are trying to defeat the Republican Party by supporting a U. S. Senate candidate who is one of the most anti-second Amendment extremists in Congress. I am not going to say, as some have, that Kirk is not a Republican. He represents a liberal district. But Kirk has shown no courage in trying to change the views of his liberal constituents. He is their liberal ‘slave.’ We do not need a Republican ‘slave’ to Barack Obama in the U. S. Senate.
“I will say that Mark Kirk as a Republican U S. Senate candidate is a joke. Run Mark, run,” Martin will state. “I want to take you on in the primary.
“Now we know why I call Andy McKenna and his Daley Machine handlers ‘McKennacrats.’ They are trying to shove Mark Kirk down our throats. McKenna is working overtime: to defeat Republicans and elect Democrats. But Kirk may be smarter than we think, in refusing to announce his candidacy; he doesn’t wasn’t to start an uprising among Illinois’s millions of gun owners.”
