“What I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally, part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.”
Barack Obama – Presidential Debate
October 16th, 2012
[All of you who kept telling me that Obama wasn’t coming for my guns, shut the hell up. That statement above makes it clear as day that we have a problem. We have gone down this road before and it did not do anything to solve the problems it was claimed to solve. What it did do was prevent thousands of Americans from getting effective defensive arms. Any individual who supports a law like that is not looking out for the best for anyone.
It is becoming obvious to even those who wish to keep their heads in the sand that this man is the enemy of freedom we all thought he was. Looks like I will be investing in more firearms and ammunition right quick.
Updated to add: I forgot that about a week ago I did this post, which quotes right off of Obama’s campaign website. His site stated the following:
Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.
Screenshot of the site can be seen here. The fact remains that this man has no qualms about outlawing the most popular rifle in America and we also know it is a slippery slope to other restrictions. We learned our lesson and it must be said, “Never Again!” -B ]
