    He already has for me...I am a victim of Crook (Cook) County and Chicago

    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?"

    Is it amazing how fast some gun owners worked with lightning speed to say "don't take away my gun" after 20 little babies were killed? Look, no one is attacking the Constitution. Have you heard anyone in power saying the country will repeal the 2nd Amendment? The are exceptions to free speech and to the right to protest. All anyone is talking about is putting some restrictions on the right to bear arms. Thank God, some gun owners and members of the NRA are finally seeing the light and are seriously talking about banning certain weapons.

    No, he is the president, he cannot do too much in the way of "attacking the second amendment". However he may do things that effect guns that have nothing to do with the second amendment. But then i doubt that too.

    First of all i think he has far too many other priorities if he wins, than what to do about guns. If he improves the educational funding system, improves the health care funding, improves after school and community projects, he will be able to cut crime (or prevent it rising too fast) in a period when crime WILL rise due to the economic situation (normally crime rises as unemployment rises, only a months or possibly a year or two afterwards.

    Certainly he will be seen as a democrat coming in and presiding over higher crime, this will not be his fault, the same will happen if McCain wins. It is bush's, and also clinton's fault for pushing the economy far too much in order to make himself look more popular. It could also be seen as a direct consequence of the iraq war and the tax rebate which did not work.

    Obama may be associated with many people, but the constitution is there and exists as it does. If he wants to change it, he knows how to do this, but also knows it will be unpopular and unsuccessful, obama is not as dumb as bush, nor is McCain for that matter.

    For the previous poster, do you not think that a representative should represent his voters? Surely what many politicians do is to vote the way their constituents would want them to vote, that is democracy.

    As president he has a far wider constituency base than he does as senator.

    He will move to appoint judges who will change it to mean a militia. The last vote was 5 to 4 because of Bush's appointments. Had Kerry been elected we would have lost the right to individually own a gun.

    This will be done through the UN. Watch us "join a UN resolution" that will superseed our constitution.

    Absolutely not. He's already stated that he would not outlaw gun ownership. Next

    No, but I would. Besides McCain will get rid of the first amendment., and that is far worse.
