    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?"

    Joke Answer: That would require him having a clear stance.

    Real Answer: Obama supports restricting gun ownership. He supported the DC gun ban (that was declared unconstitutional by the supreme court) and a similar ban in Chicago. He tries to have it both ways, but most experts (for and against gun control) consider him anti-gun.

Neither McCain or Obama prefer to take your weapons away. the only distinction is that with Obama, you have got the potential to arise with the money for bullets! i'm very intense approximately this answer and not being sarcastic. That substitute into his answer!
