Skip to comments.Obama: ‘I’m Not Going to Take Your Guns Away’
Posted on 09/05/2008 2:32:16 PM PDT by neverdem
The Obama campaign talks a lot about new ideas and expanding the political map, but in the swing state of Pennsylvania, which the campaign has focused on almost exclusively since the Democratic convention, old-school issues still rise to the fore.
The latest example came Friday during a small political event at SCHOTT North America Inc., a glass factory in Duryea, Pa., where even a hand-picked crowd threw Barack Obama a curve ball.
A woman in the crowd told Obama she had heard a rumor that he might be planning some sort of gun ban upon being elected president. Obama trotted out his standard policy stance, that he had a deep respect for the traditions of gun ownership but favored measures in big cities to keep guns out of the hands of gang bangers and drug dealers in big cities who already have them and are shooting people.

Damn straight, stringbean.
He will redefine “big city” to any city over 2 people.
Obama lies about everything, just as Reverend Wright predicted he would, “saying what he has to to get elected.” He has an extensive record of hostility to Second Amendment rights and will sign every gun-grabbing bill delivered to his desk by the leftwing Democrats running Congress.
The McCain campaign and the NRA need to publicize these facts as broadly as possible.
Of course not, he’s going to send out his people to do it. He’s not stupid.
Translation: any firearm less than 4 feet long, caliber greater than .30, or fires more than one shot without reloading.
How about the bullets?
I’m not going to take your guns away. I have underlings that will do that for me.
Now pay your taxes and have a nice day.
ONZ, he really did say that! What a clutz!
Whenever a politicians say, “I am not going to do X to you.”, complete his thought by stating, “NOT!” The fact that he brought up this issue without any external stimulus means that he must actually be planning on doing EXACTLY what he says he is not going to do.
So yeah, maybe Obama himself won't take our guns away, but he'll appoint judges who will.
...I will however take away your religion... You guys are so bitter...
Translation: I’m going to try my hardest to take your guns away.
“...gang-bangers and drug dealers ...who already have them and are shooting people.
Just how exactly does a gun ban work on felons who already possess them illegally? Someone help me understand.
First true thing he’s said in quite a while.
And, Mr. Obama....What about this Civilian Army?? We're the Civilian Army!!!.... And what symbol will you use to distinguish them from a policeman?
He still doesn't get it.
Now there's a convincing argument, Barry. And I suppose you'll also respect us in the morning...
The NRA has already earmarked a chunk of money to go after Obama. The lifetime member Palin on the ticket now they’ll likely earmark more.
Yeah. I don’t get these big city folk. Why don’t they want guns to defend themselves from all the criminals who live there?
YEP. Damn Straight!

So according to obama the United States Constitution was designed to be operated and used differently in the Cities from the countryside and from Montana and New York? Funny I never saw those sections when ever I read the US Constitution.
Never believe this zero. As with all socialist he will remove as many guns from the people as he can get away with. Its what they do.
Well ok that seems reasonable to me. /s
So what measures might The One enact to keep guns out of the hands of gang bangers and dope dealers who ALREADY HAVE THEM?
What a dope.
My thoughts exactly, when I saw the title.
Bet your sweet ass you're not!
Good one. He is beyond clueless but that’s what happens when you’re raised by Rev. Wright and the Chicago political machine.
“Im not going to LEGALLY take away your guns.
There, now he’s telling the truth. And frankly, few gun bills actually take guns away; they just make it more of a headache to own them, which is still illegal.
They will trust him even less after those words.
Im Not Going to Take Your Guns Away...
...because I’ll order the BATFE and National Guard to do it - sheesh, what’dya think, that I’d get my hands dirty doing anything? Oh, and in addition, I promise that I’ll do everything humanly possible to regulate, restrict, increase the cost and inconvenience of, and limit transportation of all guns, ammo, ammo components and magazines. And no more imports. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Molon Labe!!! Come and get them! http://moviesonline.ca/TheFeed/index.php?id=300-laydownyourweapons
He will have someone else do it.
If Hussein had had time to think about it, or rather if his people had thought about it before this comment was delivered someone would have realized that this negative formulation would not allay concerns and might just raise the angst quotient a tad.
Blah, blah, blah. Liar.
‘I’m not going to take your guns away’...thus sayeth the Lord.
Those communists always say “we won’t take them away. We’ll just apply ‘sensible’ regulations, which effectively takes them away.”
I am starting to think he is going to turn out to be a bigger fizzle than that comet Kohoutek way back when.
No, he get's it, alright. It is you who don't: that man will say or do ANYTHING to obtain power, and once he obtains it, he'll do ANYTHING to preserve or increase it...starting with degrading the power of the people to forcibly resist the tyrannical dictates that he plans to shove down our throats. He DOES get it - if we have guns, he can't do everything he wants.

Here is a big problem with Barack Obama; he knowingly associates with terrorists, radical pastors, and those being investigated for felony financial crimes.
First there is William Ayers who Obama served with and did speaches with between 1999 - 2002. In 2001 (on Sept. 11, 2001 to be exact) the New York Times printed and interview with Ayers on his days as a Weather Underground leader. In the interview Ayers states he does not regret bombing police stations, the capitol, and the pentagon and that he would not rule out doing it all again. Yet Obama never denounces him and the group he is a paid leader for gives money to Ayer’s wife’s orginization.
Then there is having a man like Rev. Wright as your mentor and naming him to your campaign. He did a 30 minute speech supporting him and refusing to denounce him; until.... his polls took a hit. Then and only then did he distance himself from the radical preacher. The man is a nutcase and Obama only seperated himself from him to save his campaign. He says our government gives the black man the drugs, our government invented HIV to eradicate blacks, etc. Nutcase.
Then there is Rezko, the Syrian born scum lord and felon who helped Obama buy property in Chicago. Obama accepted this even though there was multiple stories in Illinois about the investigations into Rezko. Obama later called it a boneheaded mistake. Yes it was, like many others.
And then there is the fact that his childhood mentor was a known member of the communist party of the united states, a fact Obama now admits.
Any single man with this many associations with people of such terrible backgrounds a serious problem is who he surrounds himself with. That is a major stumbling block for him to overcome.
What a dumbass statement which turns out to be a warning to every gun owner in this country! With him behind the wheel, the entire democrat congress and senate would be orgasmic in their opportunity to enact overwhelming and comprehensive gun control laws and bans........
I think he proposes to cut off their hands--- some kind of muslim deal.
Of course he wont. It would be kind of hard to since were all clinging to them.
He’ll just limit ammunition through serial numbers, or give control of ammo to the EPA or make it a health problem and turn the problem over to the Surgeon General. No reason to go to Congress, just make some rules at the administrative level and enforce them.
This guy is lying through his teeth.
And by the way, it sounds as if the wheels are starting to come off the old campaign. Even the handpicked participants are beginning to rebel.
