SHARE Obama forming Pennsylvania hunting and fishing steering committee

WASHINGTON–First bowling, now hunting and fishing. Campaigning in Pennsylvania is different for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). On Monday, his Pennsylvania launched the “Sportsmen and Sportswomen for Obama Steering Committee.”

The Obama release states, “avid hunters and anglers from around the state, the committee members lauded Obama for his understanding of and respect for Pennsylvanias hunting and fishing traditions and his strong record on conservation.”

Obama needs to convince voters that his support for gun control laws does not threaten second amendment rights.

My Chicago Sun-Times colleague Robert Novak writes about Obama and Washington D.C. gun laws. LINK

Obama Campaign Announces PA Sportsmen and Sportswomen for Obama Steering Committee

Novak’s lede: “Barack Obama, who informs campaign audiences that he taught constitutional law for 10 years, might be expected to weigh in on the historic Second Amendment case before the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices are pondering whether the 1976 District of Columbia law effectively prohibiting personal gun ownership in the nation’s capital is constitutional. But Obama has not stated his position.”
