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.
Al Gore and Bill Clinton were not known as gun haters when they were elected. Al Gore had been an A rated Senator by the NRA. Bill Clinton had been a lukewarm gun control advocate. This middle of the road ticket ended up passing the first actual ban (yes I realize the 1934 NFA was a defacto ban) on domestic firearms in federal history.
The current winning ticket includes one of the three most anti gun senators in recent history-a man with a 36 year track record of voting for every restriction that has ever been brought to a vote in the senate and a guy whose record in state legislative office included advocating complete bans on handguns, semi autos and the right to carry a concealed weapon.
Only a moron would argue that it would be foolish not to plan for a ban
I believe one of the purposes of the 17th Amendment was to attack the 2nd Amendment by electing senators through popular vote. This way the states have little power over senators who might vote to restrict gun ownership.

Clinton did the AWB, obama is appointing Clinton todies, lackies and sycophants.....
obama supports the chicago and dc gun bans.
if you think he wont try you are an idiot... (general you)
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
You gave the answer, then the question....or have you not seen the video of the bank robbers with bullet proof vests and body armor? Cops had to raid gun shops to get high powered rifles to put those guys down..
and police are not heavily armed for self defense as much as they are armed to fight known criminal elements. You will notice that they only carry a pistol, and have a shotgun inside the squad car. Anything else will be in the trunk, as they don't expect to need that kind of firepower all the time.
But when they do need it, they should have it.
There are no restrictions on drug runners and bank robbers, you know...

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
And in the interest of open, free dialog, why do you believe I have been dishonest in my debate? I ask since you thanked goobie for his typical snipping ad hom that I don't believe in honest debate?
