Skip to comments.Obama goes for the Assault Weapons Ban on Day 1! (So much for Respecting the 2nd A)
Posted on 01/21/2009 5:17:40 AM PST by Red in Blue PA
Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent.

Mods, please move to Breaking News
Sorry, forgot to put in the address.
Well, get busy—write-call-email your representatives.
GOA has the forms
We knew this was coming.
“Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners...blah blah blah... They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent”.
A.)how is making the AWB permanent a “commonsense measure”?
B.)How the f**k does this respect my second amendment rights?
Did you expect any different?....red
Treat Gitmo murderers kindly, while removing arms from the hands of law-abiding US citizens with the AWB.....and do this during a time of war when we have been attacked internally!
He’s wasting no time. For the people that own assault weapons and voted for Obama, they get what they deserve. Of course, I doubt he’ll be able to fully ban assault weapons because the criminals will still have them.
I still can’t believe that a Kos diarist is President of the United States.
Do you think they care about respecting your “rights”. According to them you have no rights. Get used to it.
No, I didn’t but I am sure some of the 80M gun owners who voted for Obama did.
1 down 1460 days to go.
Once more with feeling,
“The Second Amendment IS NOT about hunting!”
Oh I have rights according to them; for example, I have the right to kill an unborn child and the right to get married to someone of the same sex”. I’m gonna go buy a new AR-15 today I think, probably the only decent investment left in America at this point.
Good luck. There is a 25 week wait on AR-15s at this point.
That must be a PA thing. I can walk up the steet 4 blocks and buy a truck load by laying the cash on the counter. Not an issue in Free America.
I was referring to all of the major websites.
Oh no, I’ve been planning for this for this for quite some time now actually. I wanted to be bipartisan in the interest of America but if they pursue this, that spirit will be dead and I’ll be happy to return the favor of 8 years worth of vile Democratic rhetoric and partisanship. We’ll see how well the Dems like Obama being referred to as the Chimpansey in chief.
Tell me about the wait period. I have been waiting 3 weeks for a Taurus revolver...still no sign of one coming available. So I bought a used 9 MM Springfield XD. Ammo is even harder to come by....Right now I have a 30-06, 12 Gauge SG and Hand gun. I am waiting for the knock on the door and someone saying “please hand over your fire arms....”
