    ABCs local DC anchor Leon Harris asked Obama, "One other issue that's of great importance here in the District as well is gun control. You said in Idaho recently... 'I have no intention of taking away folks' guns,' but you support the DC handgun ban." Obama's simple response: "Right." When Harris said, "And you've said that it's constitutional," Obama is clearly seen on tape nodding his head yes.

    He may not be directly trying to go after guns but he will make it hard on LEGAL gun owners. He will sell America to the UN faster than some can say, "maybe we shouldn't have voted for him?"

    If being the anti-Christ is on the factor of God then you definately be attentive to what i think of of Obama, and that i think of his impeachment might desire to be the order of the day! ! And as others right here have stated there has consistently been some sort of gun administration. There are "protection stress" companies all over the u . s . a ., yet they are "nicely regulated" via the FBI, CIA, and God is familiar with who else.

    LOL Automatic Weapons have been restricted for almost 50 years , He wants to restrict ownership of Guns for the American Citizen , to guns He and His Liberal Pals think we should have , BTW a Flintlock was Assault weapon by their definition because it was used by the Military , and if we had not had them we would be British Subjects today .

    He supports the second amendment, but also advocates for some common-sense laws on gun control.

    Link about some smears circulating about Barack Obama's defense of the second amendment:

    Obama is for allowing ownership of guns, with restrictions on certain guns. Mostly that means automatic and some semi-automatic weapons.

    He wants to control it to the point no one will have them legally.

    I think this quote wraps it up quite well.
