Saturday, 30 Apr 2011 10:12 PM

He spoke to the group Saturday night,

Huckabee was referring to a remark President Barack Obama made about conservatives clinging to their guns and religion. Huckabee also said Obama didn't receive an "F" rating from a leading group seeking more gun restrictions because the president has helped gun owners — though gun owners have been allowed to pack weapons on Amtrak trains and carry them in federal parks since President Obama took office.

Rather, Huckabee says, President Obama is not attacking gun owners' rights as quickly and effectively as anti-gun and gun control groups would like.
