Yes, it's a fact Obama will take our guns! TO ARMS! TO ARMS!
No, this is a fear based rhetoric of the right to smear the upcoming Obama administration!
Any administration has the potential to violate our 2nd Amendment rights!
I'm not worried but I will be watching.
1) More justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG does not believe there is a constitutional right to own any gun
2) a complete ban on all handguns
3) a complete ban on all semi autos
The dem party is in control of both houses. The current attempt to extend and renew the clinton gun ban is sponsored entirely by DEMOCRATS
You really are foolish or dishonest to claim that Obama does not want to ban guns or that the party he serves is not interested in gun bans.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Of course you might/will argue; given Obama's past support of hand-gun bans in Chicage, dem's platforms of gun control, etc., you are only reacting to an eventuality. This could, emphasis could, be the case and forewarned is forearmed but the whole "the sky is falling" fear mantra going on around here gives me much joy as I watch you and your ilk squirm, rant and rave.
The recent DC vs Heller decision was a narrow 5-4 and since Bush has had control of the SCotUS appointments for the last 7+ years methinks we will see more then a few SCJ's retiring now that a Democratic President will be in office and this will change the total make-up of the SCotUS. Thank God.1) More justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG does not believe there is a constitutional right to own any gun
That of course does not mean an automatic change to the recent SCotUS interpretation of the 2nd Amendment does it...more likely it will mean a continued guarantee of privacy for women, equal rights for all men and women, homosexuals included, etc. In other words the SCotUS will probably be more progressive then it has been for many years.
Proof he will promote this as President...2) a complete ban on all handguns
Proof he will promote this as President...3) a complete ban on all semi autos
A possibility. The 'assault weapon' ban may be reinstituted. Even so does that mean every weapon owned by US citizens will be confiscated? No. Does that mean every American will no longer be guaranteed the rights of the 2nd Amendment? No. But...be afraid. Be very afraid. Obama is coming to the office of President and he's going to take your guns. Fear him. Fear the left. They are evil. They want to take your rights. They want to destroy your country. Evil, evil democrats. TO ARMS my fellow country me. TO ARMS. Prepare for war. All patriots TO ARMS TO ARMS..The dem party is in control of both houses. The current attempt to extend and renew the clinton gun ban is sponsored entirely by DEMOCRATS
I'm neither. I'm simply more reserved, more reasoned, more logical then all of you living in such fear...You really are foolish or dishonest to claim that Obama does not want to ban guns or that the party he serves is not interested in gun bans.
If a president were to ban the Episcopal and Baptist churches would you say that the followers of those faiths still had religious freedom because they could attend one of many Methodist, Lutheran or roman Catholic churches?
IF a government has the power to ban one class of commonly owned guns for idiotic reasons, you have established their power to ban all guns for idiotic reasons.
If I wait to buy stuff til Obama decides to ban the stuff it will be too late. Right now finding a scary looking rifle is difficult-they are all being bought up as fast as they can be made. People who waited until clinton actually banned such stuff ended up paying twice as much for them as they cost before the ban. Glock magazines went from 15 dollars a piece to almost 100 due to clinton.
Obama has called for complete bans-now we don't know if he will try to implement them when he becomes president. Only an idiot would act as if he will not.
Not before I get my new toy..
Bushmaster 450 conversion.
Wait a minute. So in one sentence you're claiming Obama's calling for "complete bans" (you still haven't provided proof) and in the next stating you're don't know if he will? So it's just a fear then. Really. Not really something that's guaranteed to happen when Obama becomes President, or even guaranteed during his administration. I guess just a hunch? A gut feeling? Fear. Plain and simple man. Plain and simple.Obama has called for complete bans-now we don't know if he will try to implement them when he becomes president. Only an idiot would act as if he will not.
