    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?"

    I think he's already got a bunch of Judges in mind for the second a conservative retires from the bench. Look at the 9th circuit court of appeals and their decisions. If there is an activist Judge in there (LOL!!) he or she will likely be the nominee. I believe Reid and Pelosi have one or two in mind. I believe Obama's Constitutional Law experience will bring some scary and very carefully crafted legislation. Don't think for one second he's not smart. He is one of the brightest politicians around today. All that pie-in-the-sky he sold America on will not happen the way everyone hoped. We are dealing with an extreme right winger now, so the people made the pendulum swing just as hard the other way. Obama was the director of a gun control foundation that wishes to ban all firearms to citizens by changing the perception of the Second Ammendment to the federalist, as opposed to the individual. If you are a true American, fight this battle. It IS an individual right to protect the people from a corrupt federal government. I think we can all see how important such a right is in the current environnment, and why both Bush and Obama don't want you to have a detatchable magazine. Look up HR1022. It is named after everyone's favorite .22 rifle. Ask a Canadian how they like gun bans.

    Americans support the right to keep and bear "arms", not "semi-automatic assault weapons". Stop twisting the words around. Obama is also concerned about the safety of the public a lot more than Bush and his Congress which has been bought off by the NRA's lobbyists.

    Nothing. Gun control issues are resolved in the Supreme Court. Their last ruling struck down a ban on handguns in D.C. (I think it was D.C.). Obama agreed that the ban was too strict.

    I would honestly like to see a tax on gun ownership in the states. But, I am pretty sure whoever associated with such a deal would get shot. Quickly.

    "HE" will put it on the back burner for a short time. Whenever any type of news of a misuse of a firearm comes into the news, "HE" will immediately start his anit-gun "do if for the children" forces working. "He" already said that no one but cops and the military should have firearms in this country. This will allow him and his kind (marxists) to do whatever they please. We have all become "subjects", we are no longer "citizens".

    We have to be careful using his name on yahoo now, I was just hit for an 11 point violation for quoting him! It was declared an "attack" I guess.

    You have to remember that he has to deal with the senate and house-and the republicans will not allow him to just do as he pleases-the people of america still have a voice with their senators and congressman.
