Wayne LaPierre and President Obama’s re-election advisors agree on one thing – the so-called battleground states will be key to Obama winning re-election in 2012. These states have large gun-owning and hunting populations but, for the most part, went to Obama in 2008. LaPierre notes that if gun-owners can generate just 2-3% more votes against Obama in those states, he’s toast. I agree. I would also add that it is up to the Republicans to nominate someone other than the wishy-washy on guns Mitt Romney.
