Obama Campaign Unlawfully Misuses Proprietary Firearms Industry Media List

NEWTOWN, Conn. – The Obama campaign in Indiana, on September 27, unlawfully obtained and made unauthorized use of a proprietary media list belonging to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) – the trade association for the firearms industry.  Sen. Obama used this list to e-mail a press release concerning National Hunting and Fishing Day.

Earlier today, NSSF sent a “cease and desist” letter to the Obama campaign demanding that they immediately stop any further unauthorized misuse of its proprietary media list.

The list contains the names and addresses of members of the media that attended the NSSF Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) – the world’s largest firearms trade show and the 23rd largest trade show of any kind in North America.

The list can only be obtained from NSSF and its use is tightly controlled by NSSF.  Neither the Obama campaign, nor its operations in Indiana, obtained any rights from NSSF to use the list.

NSSF’s letter also demands that the Obama campaign destroy all copies of the list, identify how they obtained the list and pay monetary damages to NSSF for its misappropriation and unauthorized use of the association’s intellectual property.  NSSF demanded an immediate response from the Obama campaign and has threatened to file a lawsuit against the campaign if its demands are not met.

“NSSF will not sit idly by while its legal rights are harmed, particularly for partisan political gain,” said NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel Lawrence G. Keane.
NSSF is also encouraging all sportsmen and gun-owners to visit the NSSF Voter Education Web-site and educate themselves about the candidates’ records and positions on issues important to them in this election.

Another classic case of where Presidential hopefuls can infringe upon rights.

If Barrack Obama and his Campaign has to steal a media list from NSSF then what in the hell are they also stealing?  And what exactly is it for  besides a email press release?

But I will say the people don’t trust the Government as it is especially us pro-2nd amendment folks yes the 30% who actually care about our rights that don’t really trust the Government.

This is really but another avenue for people not to trust the Government and for people not to trust the Obama campaign.  What the 30% who care really want is LESS Government involvment into our lives and less Government cronies interpreting our laws and rights. And less Government not a expanded bigger Government. We have the federalist papers that lay out the interpretation of these rights. And these politicians frame themselves up as Constitutional scholars? Give me a break,!  we all knows these fat cat politicians don’t know the Constitution from one end to the other. We as the people can just look up  the Federalist papers ourselves and see what our founding fathers really mean. I have done this numerous times. And it’s not a surprise how many times I have looked in the past since the 1930’s  and have seen how the Government totally screwed with our rights. The founding fathers warned us that our Democratic Government could go corrupt , and warned us about politicians telling us what we want to hear. The real question is does everybody other than the 30% really not care anymore?

    And I wonder what they will do with this list and the names of people and agencies or businesses on it? Not just what they may have *said* they are going to do, but what their future intentions are.

    You know how the Nazis found out in so many cases who was Jewish, don’t you?

    Well of course. And this is exactly the reason why “gun registration” needs to be thrown out of the law books. All we need is some @$$hole who comes into power to look through those registrations ,then every law abiding gun owner will know first hand what it feels like to be singled out and rounded up jailed or killed.
    That is something that need to be avoided!
