truth about Obama on guns?

He has said he will pass a fed reg overriding ALL states concealed carry permits outlawing them.(more big government)

He proposes a 500% tax on ammunition thereby leaving the second in the constitution but screwing the people.

Typical lying polotician.

As a life long hunter and gun owner who has never commited any gun crime ever I say he should show up in person to collect the guns and see what happens.

Update:

Do your own research.

Report away dumba**

    I have no problem with the control of fully automatic weapons. You don't go hunting Bambi/Bullwinkle with an AK47. My major concern is the identification of where and who owns the guns that are used for hunting, self defense, home defense, etc. I believe this would be yet another intrusion into my civil rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. The real problem will come if they try implementing forced registration. They can KMA before I'll fill out so much as 1 piece of paper. My neighbors and business partners have discussed this extensively. No one will get any cooperation in my area. I doubt Law Enforcement in this county will make an effort to enforce this crap anyway. I think I can safely say that the same will be true in many parts of the Country.

    Well if Obama overrides the states concealed carry permits that is going to put many city's in a bind. They will then have to refund all those people their money for the permits,my husband for one.

    Looks like were going to be seeing Obama's true face soon once he is in the white house. And we think things are bad now.

    A refusal to accept the concept and reality that people kill people, not guns, the liberals who justify in their own minds, no guns, nobody gets shot is pure fantasy for several reasons, none being more evident than the fact there will always be guns in America, criminals will have them come hell or high water! When law-abiding citizens are denied them, they will become just victims with no recourse or ability to defend themselves which is a U.S. Constitution given right, slowly being eroded through trickery, scheme's and hidden ploy's by the anti-gun politicians who seek to make all weapons outlawed. While politicians hide behind concrete barriers, security forces and are well -protected, they have plans to leave the law-abiding general population at the mercy of those who prey upon society, by disarming them, serving them up to those who practice barbaric behavior within society and indiscriminately murder at will when they feel the urge! This is the recipe for disaster, anti-gun "NUTS" want forced on all Americans! The U.S. Congress has already taken away American "Freedoms", now they want our means of defense! The criminals are hoping this foolishness succeeds, it will make it easier for them to commit criminal acts knowing the law-abiding citizens have been completely disarmed and incapable of defending themselves or their families.God help us all!

    I did my own research:

    Q: When you were in the state senate, you talked about licensing and registering gun owners. Would you do that as president?

    A: I don't think that we can get that done. But what we can do is to provide just some common-sense enforcement. The efforts by law enforcement to obtain the information required to trace back guns that have been used in crimes to unscrupulous gun dealers. As president, I intend to make it happen. We essentially have two realities, when it comes to guns, in this country. You've got the tradition of lawful gun ownership. It is very important for many Americans to be able to hunt, fish, take their kids out, teach them how to shoot. Then you've got the reality of 34 Chicago public school students who get shot down on the streets of Chicago. We can reconcile those two realities by making sure the Second Amendment is respected and that people are able to lawfully own guns, but that we also start cracking down on the kinds of abuses of firearms that we see on the streets.

    His willingness to extend Bush's "Faith Based Initiative" nonsense is also troublesome, but he's still better than McCain.

    I did my research. On Halloween a little kid got blown away with an AK47 through the door of the house where he was trick or treating.

    What in the hell does anyone need an AK47 for? Please explain that.
