Mr. Obama has not made any points with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), a Connecticut-based nonprofit group of 4,000 gun makers, retailers, sportsmen and publishers.

The NSSF claims that on Sept. 27, the Obama campaign “unlawfully obtained and made unauthorized use of a proprietary media list” belonging to the group and has since sent a cease-and-desist letter to campaign officials.

Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has launched get-out-the vote drives, including lawn signs that read “I’m a ‘bitter’ gun owner and I vote.”

“We’re arming gun owners, who are a very loyal voting bloc, with the facts. And it’s a fact that gun control has become a political liability. Senator Obama is spending millions trying to camouflage his take on the issue,” said NRA spokesman Chris Cox.
