    Yup...Y2K and visqueen and duct tape all over. Nothing but fear driven panic by the right wing declaration that "Obama is going to take your guns"...*cha-ching cha-ching all the way to the bank*. Bunch of ****ing mooks.

    It is fun seeing an ObamaSlurper try to insult people who are rationally reacting to what Obama most likely will do. Obama has called for

    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.

    And, in all of the places where there is/was a total or near-total gun ban, it's been done by Democrats.
    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.

    Every federal restriction on gun rights has been dem sponsored and signed by a dem president except the HUGHES Amendment which was a poison pill attached-in violation of congressional rules and propably not properly ratified-to the pro gun McClure Volker Firearm Owners protection act. Reagan signed the overall bill

    If you were able to step back and take a logical look at what is going on you would admit you are overreacting, at least at this point in time. Why do I say this? Because you are basing your arguments, claims and opines on a future possible scenario.

    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.

    1) More justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg. RBG does not believe there is a constitutional right to own any gun
    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.

    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.

    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..

    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.
    I'm neither. I'm simply more reserved, more reasoned, more logical then all of you living in such fear...

    Re: Obama and gun-ownership...

    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.

    First you would have to prove the gov'ts reasons for trying to ban one class of commonly owned guns are "idiotic" and two what exactly is meant by "commonly owned guns".

    You're free to participate in the panic buying TD. That's your right. Personally, again, it's Y2K and visqueen and duct tape to me. Pure, unbridled panic based on right wing fomented fear and not something I'm buying into. And it's not because I'm a liberal either. I'm ****ing retired Army and I've suffered, spent the majority of my adult life protecting the Constitution and its Amendments, my nation and my peoples. So don't for one instant believe my position is based on politics.

    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.
    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.
