In all of our nation's history, a handful of dates stand out -- dates that meant life or death for America and our freedoms. On July 4, 1776, our Founding Fathers put their lives on the line and declared that America would be independent and free. On June 6, 1944, American troops landed at Normandy and America took a critical step toward ending history's bloodiest war. And on September 11, 2001, we witnessed the deadliest terrorist attack ever to take place on American soil. These events, and many others, shaped our destiny and still affect our lives today. And as I travel the country talking to fellow National Rifle Association members, gun owners, and Americans from all walks of life, it is clear to me that the next decisive date in American history will be November 6, 2012 -- the day America must decide whether President Barack Obama deserves a second term in the White House.
