    True but BHO has consistently shown support for an assault weapons ban.

    Here BHO confirms his stance but he states a fact, hand guns is the weapon of
    choice when it come to violence in the streets.

    Oct 17,2012 - So my belief is that, A, we have to enforce the laws we’ve already got; make sure that we’re keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, those who are mentally ill. We’ve done a much better job in terms of background checks, but we’ve got more to do when it comes to enforcement.

    But I also share your belief that weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don’t belong on our streets. And so what I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced, but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence -- because, frankly, in my hometown of Chicago there’s an awful lot of violence, and they’re not using AK-47s, they’re using cheap handguns.

    Sanctions provoked gun boom. NRA must be happy. Well done, mister President
    Wrong. The NRA was likely behind the sanctions. The NRA is strictly a US gun industry lobby. It DOES NOT CARE about gun rights, except when doing so is favorable to US gun makers.

    Amazing how the election of a president caused a surge in gun ownership twice over.
    People felt the need to protect themselves.
    People felt they need to protect themselves from the potential loss of their Second Amendment Rights, not to protect themselves with a gun from the President. Although, there have always been, and will always be, those that feel that they must arm themselves against ALL government, and prepare for some war that in their mind they feel is coming - these people, however, have nothing to do with the 99.999999% that bought guns, ammo and magazines when Obama was elected.

If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice.

I can understand why some may not like Bush but if they're progressives they have absolutely zero logical hate because if they're going to champion Obama and bash Bush I call that epic hypocrisy. Of course it doesn't even end there - we can blame our congress for all of this nonsense to boot, because after all it is congress that approves these crazy ideas, so with that said it's not only Bush's fault or even Obama (well yeah it is because he thinks hes a king as do progressives)..... The real fault lays on the general populace and their political gangbanging...
    Well no, what you're witnessing in my post is anything but a championing of Obama. I merely pointed out that the 2008/2012 and now the AK47 fears are largely unfounded due to the fact that Obama has really done nothing to restrict gun ownership. Didn't he allow guns back into the national parks? And as pointed out by Beua, there's plenty of alternatives to the russian made AK47 available.

    Yeah, but what's the net result? What has Obama DONE to restrict gun ownership?

    Here's how Obama is restricting gun rights.

    A new law passed by Congress and signed by President Obama last week will allow guns in the parks and national wildlife refuges.

    A little of both. The reason I say a only a little of both, is because Russia is not the only country that is producing AK-47's and the sales of that weapon in the US from Russia was already small compared to other manufacturers due to import fees making them more expensive.

    The third element, IMHO, is that it was a simple way to appease some of the anti-gun lobby on the left at very little risk to the Obama Administration because the majority of AK-47 buyers still have legal avenues to buy one and because of that the political blow-back on Obama would be minimal from the gun lobby and pro-Second Amendment people.

    Other than the Class III buyers, no one was really hurt here in the US, and in the grand scheme of economic impact to Russia it was like taking a short pee in the Pacific Ocean in scale.

    IMO, democrats would rather elect the devil over a republican out of spite.


    Right-wingers can never, ever take any responsibility for losing an election. Vote conservative, it's the will of the people. Vote liberal, THEYRE CHEATING!! PARTISAN HACKS! ITS NOT FAAAAAIR
