I think they DO know what the second amendment says.

I believe they do the “hunting rights protected” BS in order to divide and conquer.

They do delusionally believe police are sufficient to protect. They don’t care about protecting you, just protecting the beltway elites.

It’s really not his choice to “let” us keep our guns. The statement implies that we have our guns because he lets us have them.

“...and roughly 100 million firearms in private ownership.”

Actaully - it’s estimated that there are over 100 million (that’s 100,000,000) gun owners in America. I think that would put the number of guns in private ownership at approx 350 - 500 million. There is not an armed “force” in the world that can match us in this category.

Got’ a find them first before he can take them away from me.

LOL found a gun, in holster with two clips and two boxes of ammo tucked away in the living room when I was cleaning last night. Didn't know it was there. Left it as its a good place for self-defense if someone breaks down the front door. Had to go make sure there was still one under the bed on my side though. Apparently we don't know exactly how many guns we have in the house.

The United States of America is not the same thing as the state of Illinois. The mighty O can't arbitrarily eliminate firearms. There are Democrats who are pro 2nd amendment, the Republicans are pro second amendment, and roughly 100 million firearms in private ownership.

Yeah, wait 'til the "O Squad" tries to take anybody's guns in Texas. {snicker!}

This analysis will takes months...if not years.

Baloney. They have the legislation all ready to go. They're just waiting for the right people to sit in the right seats come February, and for a statistically likely random event to give them an excuse to ram it through. At simplest, they just have to raise the existing excise tax on guns/ammo from 10% to 1000%, and require all guns be NFA registered. They already have a worse "assault weapon" ban ready to go (just re-submit HR1022).

Their time in power has come, and they have as little as 2 years to pull off the whole agenda. You don't seriously think they don't have the legal steamrollers already gassed up, turned on and ready to roll do you?

Obama as a Constitutional law lecturerer, enters the job with the supreme court giving ANY attempt at restriction an automatic “strict scrutiny” test.

There is no more “any reasonable government purpose” pro forma excuse.

Obama doesn’t have a say in the matter.

"I read (here at FR?) that gun sales are precipitously up."

I checked Google and found about 780,000 articles on Gun Sales.

"Any citizen thinking of getting that rifle or handgun might want to consider sooner as opposed to later."

They say, "You can never have to many Guns or to much Ammunition"
