It's been a week and a half since Barack Obama was elected president. He won't take office for another two months. But he's already got one big group of Americans on their feet.
What is Barack Obama's position on the right to bear arms? Sen. Obama's campaign Web site says he "respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms." It promises he will "protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport and use guns."
Seeking to reassure gun owners, Mr. Obama told a campaign audience in Ohio in October: "I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away."
But the crowds mobbing America's gun stores this week say a large number of Americans -- including first-time gun buyers -- don't believe him.
In 2003, while serving in the Illinois Legislature, Mr. Obama voted in favor of a bill in the Judiciary Committee that would have made it illegal to "knowingly manufacture, deliver or possess" so-called "semi-automatic assault weapons," reports Chris Cox, chief lobbyist for the National Rifle Association. "Under this bill, a firearm did not actually have to be semi-automatic to be banned. According to definitions in the bill, all single-shot and double-barreled shotguns 28-gauge or larger, and many semi-automatic shotguns of the same size, would be banned as 'assault weapons.'

And a few man- stopper compound bows and a couple of pit bulls named fluffy.
“if kept in good shape”
I’ve been keeping a lot of ammo in my storage barn. Less concerned about security than temperature extemes. It looks OK, but do you think I should move it inside?
Nah. He wouldn't bother, he'll just tax them out of existence and regulate them to death.
Yes, “Truth” to the Left is that which advances their goals. Factuality is irrelevant.
“It looks OK, but do you think I should move it inside?”
I am no expert, but my initial thought is yes. No reason to let it deteriorate at a faster rate.
I think I’ll move it inside this weekend, thanks.
No kidding, a Pizza Hut pizza dough box. CTD must be shipping out so much ammo that they're having to scrounge any boxes they can get.
perhaps we need a “bow” thread for experts to recommend good hunting bows in various price ranges, just like we have the gun threads...
One of the ironies of our age is some of us have lost respect for those who lived before us. We have been conditioned to think that because of the technical progress the we have made that people who lived 75-250 years ago were uneducated and backward. However this is an illusion we have brought on ourselves.
Advanced technology does not automatically bring wisdom. Wisdom is acquired over time. These “Wunderkinder” have no respect for those “dead white guys” who wrote our constitution. They have nothing but contempt for it.
Giants they were, who formed our heritage.
I'm making an ammo run tommorow, can't have enough of that stuff!
If he gave it a minute of thought he'd ban BB guns.
Another example of the left encouraging people to disregard God's commands. The 5th commandment is not just about honoring your own immediate parents, but by extension, our ancestors, our traditions, and the values of our culture.
Ok, bow experts... help us out. I like them because they are not registered, and the gov’t cannot control the ammo. I have one, but it’s a yard sale special. I was told a long bow was better to hunt with because the twap of the string is less audible to prey. I am 108 pound female, so I need some info on getting more stopping power with less effort.
With a bow, you can GET a gun. I pray that it doesn’t come to that.
Look up “Liberator pistol”.
It wasn’t just members of the New Orleans Police Department who were involved in that gun grabbing outrage in the post-Katrina days....
The California Highway Patrol, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and even menbers of the 82nd Airborne participated, among others.
The Left builds nothing, only destroys, blames others, and subjects others.
Republican Democracy = freedom of choice
Christianity = freedom of choice
Islam not= freedom
Totalitarianism not= Freedom
Totalitarianism = Communism/Marxism/Liberalism
Problem, how do we reverse voting to suspend Freedom in the Nov. 4th election?
Wise words from a wise man.
