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.'

Having enough firearms and ammo for the moment, I just joined the NRA!
FReepmail me for my page-or-so guide to basic reloading and inexpensive equipment for beginners.
It’s gona be a carefuly selected politicaly correct army. The retards will be given guns to genocide the smart.
It’s Obama’s redistribution of wealth and plan favoring terrorists with blessings and appeasement hand outs. It’s going to get worse as the media will be propped up.
He’s going after your money, morality, jobs and guns, to hand them over to the evil losers who will not repent for voting him in office. Already RINOs use the word extremists to describe folkes with actual values, on their way to view 911 terrorists as their liberators.
How many do you reckon will want to die trying to take them away. I doubt very many would.
It certainly is. Would you accept that explanation if the ruling in question was a divorce decree, AFM? I would look into that before giving them any more paperwork that they probably don't have the authority to ask for. IMHO.
I will not take it away for awhile but I will make it hard as hell for you to purchase one (if you can afford the taxes) ditto for the ammunition you will need for it...........
That being said, i will not take your guns away......BHO
They don’t call him “O” for nothing!
Would that be indexed as "twanglist?" ;^)
ABC World news has a story on this. One store in Texas is sellibg $100,000 a day and could sell more if they could get it, a store in Las Vegas same thing with a twist, owner said at least half the patrons are wearing Obama pins an/or T-shirts...
His brother just went through the same thing a few months ago. I told him he needs to look into this.
Seems to me one would get a letter informing him of the change. He went before one judge ( a lady ) when he got it originally and yet the one who retired is a man.
Makes no sense, but then again this is Erie County, NY.
Yes, sir. As some say to El Rushbo, ‘Dittoes’. One round at a time.
“To a communist lying is perfectly moral and ethical, if it advances the cause of communism.”
That’s why we never trusted the Russians, either.
“reduce the recoil of my M44/7.62x54R, I have to order a better butt plate.”
about half way down the page.
I looked it up and the Taurus I bought is .38 Special (not .357)
We'll use wad cutters on the range and keep +P for home defense.
Should be adequate if a situation arose where I didn't have time to access the pump shotgun.
When he gets in and starts his crap, you may have to incorporate it into the American Flag...
The goa didn’t do a single thing during this election.
The goa didn’t do a single thing to Help the Katrina victims recover their firearms.
The goa haven’t done a single solitary thing on their own through their entire existance.
