    Obama will take your guns away

    Just curious, do you think Obama will somehow take your guns away?

    Extra points if you can tell me what the last four options have in common.

    Not directly

    but what Obama can and will do is to appoint more judges like Sotomayor who do not believe there is an individual right of citizens to own guns. that means if Heller comes up again and Kennedy has been replaced by another anti gun justice, our gun rights are in jeopardy Furthermore there are many restrictions that many of us believe are unconstitutional that are in place but of dubious validity such as the Hughes Amendment which banned the legal registration and ownership of post May 19, 1986 automatic weapons Another couple anti gun justices will mean that many restrictions less draconian than outright bans of most guns might be sustained

    Furthermore the executive orders Obama can impose can cause massive problems. Clinton banned the importation of chinese made weapons and ammo. Many of the best brands of low cost high quality ammo come from Mexico (Aguila) Serbia (Privi Prtizan) Russia (Brown bear, wolf) etc and Obama can prevent that through executive order which would drive up the cost of shooting substantially.

    2nd amendment proponents are worried about the politicians who could care less what the Constitution says, not the dumb people who don't understand the constitution.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Obama has pretty much been more in support of guns than some of the previous presidents. Gun fanatics should actually love him for that.

    Re: Obama will take your guns away

    Why I said yes,

    Given the ability to appoint just about anyone to the Supreme Court that body could easily rule the 2nd miraculously does not apply to citizens but state militias. Of course we disagree with that but stupid things happen. And like gay marriage a law banning the sell or transfer of a gun gets approved in some place like SF, Chicago, or DC and proponents give LE more money to cities that follow suit ( like a seat belt or helmet law) so more cities do then a state and it steam roles. Ultimately no more gun shops, no industry except for cops / defense. No inheritance, taxes on ammo, and people can't afford to shoot. 20 years later 70% oppose gun ownership cause 66% don't own any.

    Can Obama come and take them...no....but he can toss a snowball way up on the mountain top to get it rolling.

    Yeah, I think Obama's administration has tried to play both sides in a way, it's sort of frustrating.
