    Obama and gun-ownership...

    Is the most recent 2nd Amendment uproar here at DPF concerning Obama planning on taking our guns more about unsubstantiated fear or reality based on fact?

    As I see it this is more of the fear mongering right we have all come to love attempting to smear the upcoming Obama administration via paranoid theorizing before he has even had the chance to be sworn in.

    Re: Obama and gun-ownership...

    Well, the last Democrat administration, with a Democrat Congress, gave us the most sweeping restrictions on the 2nd Amendment we've seen. Why shouldn't a new Democrat Administration with a strengthened Democrat Congress try to do the same?

    I think you can count on it.

    This question has been answered, in the affirmative, with overwhelming support, in other topics/threads.

    So, living up to your nature, you're wasting space here.

    Obama, being from Chicago, is untrustworthy. Plus given the pension Chicago has for horrible, horrible treason and tyranny against the people and their right to keep and bear arms; I am well suspicious of Obama. Though any administration has the possibility of working against freedom and liberty; and most do. I wouldn't trust Obama with my rights, especially as it relates to my ability to keep and bear arms. Chicago is too interested in taking our guns away. That way you can't fight back when the police beat the piss out of you for no reason.

    As fun as it is to fantasize about the great war between the malicious government agents and the noble armed citizens, no one is coming to take our guns in the night. Worst case scenario, maybe some tougher anti-assault rifle mumbo jumbo will get passed. Maybe not.

    Re: Obama and gun-ownership...

    There are many Democrats who would ban the ownership of all guns if they could. Some Republicans, too, I suppose. It's not like it's far-fetched to expect something sweeping.

    And that is too much. The only thing that should be done currently in terms of our ability to keep and bear arms is the removal of restrictions and bans; not adding more.

    I would have to say any administration has the potential to violate our 2nd amendment rights. Seeing how democrats have a history of not only wanting to violate our 2nd amendment rights they also have a history of actually violating 2nd amendment rights, an Obama administration with a democrat majority infringing on our 2nd amendment rights is not a matter of "if" but a matter of "when". There are numerous articles of Obama supporting anti-2nd amendment laws,So is is reality that he and other democrats want to take away or severely restrict our 2nd amendment rights. Those that claim such fear is paranoia are lying their asses off or they are severely naive.


    These are all anti-2nd amendment things Obama supports
    Gun control: Election Center 2008 - CNN.com
    Barack Obama
    Voted against a 2005 law prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers stemming from acts committed by others using their products. Supports instant criminal background checks on people purchasing guns and believes law should apply to gun sales at gun shows. Calls for permanently reinstating assault weapons ban. Voted for 2005 amendment placing restrictions on rifle ammunition that is "designed or marketed" to be armor-piercing. Supports making guns childproof and voted for 2005 child safety lock amendment. Would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which allows the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to share data on history of sales and transfers of firearms used in crimes only with federal agencies for national security purposes, or prosecutors needing it for an ongoing criminal investigation or prosecution. Regarding the Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller, Obama did not sign a friend-of-the-court brief that urged the Supreme Court to overturn the District of Columbia gun ban. At a debate, when asked about case, Obama said he believes "that the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms. But just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can't constrain the exercise of that right." Voted for 2006 amendment prohibiting confiscation of firearms from private citizens, particularly during times of crisis or emergency

    "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"

    It was noted -- by the Daily Koz, no less -- that The Obama's website, his plan for change, was revised to remove the specification of a permanent 'assault weapon' ban being part of said plan.

    Daily Kos: State of the Nation

    Of course, he IS on public record for supporting that ban.

    There's no reason to think that another AWB wont be porposed, passed and signed into law.
