thats the same tripe the dems were squawking two years ago before they took over "don't worry we don't what to take your guns". bull!.... what happened ? HR1022, look it up I have, to reinstate the assault weapons band along with even more restrictions. the ruger 1022 would have been banded under the proposal. fortunately it die in committee because they figured going after guns then would hurt their chances in 08. so whats in store now that there is nothing stopping them. anyone in favor of banning any type firearm is a fool for thinking its going to solve the crime problem. a firearm is a tool like a skill saw or any other tool. the way in which it is used by those that under the law shouldn't have it to begin with is the problem.
the guy's voting record is clear regardless of what he says he will or won't do. hes a politician which means he'll say whatever he needs to in order to get votes. i think he did vote against buckshot in Il because i pretty sure its illegal there for deer hunting. lets pull up all the votes in favor of the gun owner, thats all guns, and his votes against and see which is list is longer. I think maybe you need to check his record in IL, cause there hasn't been much in washington for him to vote on even if he had been there to vote.
The man hasn't seen bitter, wait till a bill comes across his desk to ban 10 round mags or bigger or rifles with pistol grips or flash suppressors. bitter won't be the right word then. and guaranteed he will sign any bill that bans any and all guns. or he'll sign that same world agreement that Australia did that resulted in the lost of their firearms.
Your words are like the words a guy at my local gun shop, owned by a retired police chief, was spouting all over the place and how great it was that Obama got elected. He was told what he could do with the front stuffer he had in hand and asked to leave the store in no uncertain terms. one of my favorite stores. if it wasn't before it is now.
You sound like one of those cops, and I've met quite a few, that think because they are cops, they know more about guns how to shoot them and who should have them solely because your a cop. I have a lot of police officers as friends and have found that they,most of them, know less and can't shot as well as most of the guys that have been hunting and shooting from the age of 5,6,7. So bringing your service in public protection, which is commendable me being pro cop, carries little to no weight here with me.
sorry guys that just got me more than a little hot. defending Obama on gun control what a joke.
