The Second Amendment has been under attack, which means the NRA has also been under attack. Gun owners everywhere are very concerned about the anti-common sense agenda which will make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and those they love. It's quite obvious that criminals don't obey laws, so the measures the Obama administration and its cohorts are planning will not serve to curb gun violence.
Governor Palin, an NRA life member, has been a strong advocate for the Second Amendment. As an Alaskan and a hunter, she understands the value of this Constitutional right, and as far back as 2009, as discussed here, she warned a gathering of NRA members that this administration would use health care to infringe on the Second Amendment. As usual, she has demonstrated an interesting ability to predict the direction we're headed as a nation. At a time when clueless people are counseling Americans to rely solely on whistles or buy a double-barreled shotgun, and when others are exploiting children to push gun control, Governor Palin sees the big picture.
Kenton and Pam Lodwick, also from Alaska, had the honor of videoing the Governor's August 1, 2009 speech in Anchorage. The footage was then edited by All-Around Video. With permission from each of them, I'm posting the video in its entirety.

This is what Governor Palin said nearly 4 years ago:
"And by the way, [with] health care being so big in D.C. right now, be wary when some kind of tie-in occurs. Because it will crop up: a tie-in with guns in an attempt to take away our rights under the guise of some new health care plan. You know that this is coming--that the two issues will somehow crop up and they'll be tied together. So we have to be very wary of that." -Governor Sarah Palin, August 1, 2009 at the Captain Cook Hotel in Anchorage, Alaska
In this 2009 NRA speech, Governor Palin discussed the Second Amendment, and she warned us:
