Skip to comments.Obama: Gun owners do not need to stock up
Posted on 12/07/2008 7:27:30 PM PST by An Old Man
As gun sales shoot up around the country, President-elect Barack Obama said Sunday that gun-owning Americans do not need to rush out and stock up before he is sworn in next month.
But National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said it's not Obama's words but his legislative track record that has gun-buyers flocking to the stores.
"Anyone who thinks they need to rush out and buy a firearm clearly has not been paying attention to how quickly we make progress on this issue. We don't think these are first-time buyers. We think they are people who already have more than enough guns at their homes to protect themselves and are buying more."

Extending the ban on those nasty little black rifles would not cost them a penny. Look for it by Feb 1, 2009
Far be it from me to correct the NRA but...what track record?
Obama’s a frosh AND a coward - too afraid to vote!
That might be pushing it a bit. I give it til june 1. On barak’s desk and signed in time to celebrate independence day. Ha.
"But National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said it's not Obama's words but his legislative track record that has gun-buyers flocking to the stores."
Yeah, I agree with you. He is NOT to be trusted. His record speaks for itself. I expect the AWB to pass again, and it will be strengthened. We’ve got to stock up now.
BHO : “I believe in common-sense gun safety laws, and ...”
Like DC ?
Obama was born more than 2 years ago.
Check his record in the Illinois legislature and his various pronouncements if you're seriously interested in his record.
LOL! That a keeper. :o)
“No! No! No!
Bear Stearns is FINE”
I don’t trust that steaming pantload 0bama as far as I can throw him.
Gun sales are soaring for the same reason the stock market is tanking - Obama.
At least one promise he kept, he created jobs in gun shops selling guns,
Lets see he is a lawyer and a politician and his history is just a “little cloudy”.
First of all -- who are "we"?
Secondly, who are they (whoever they are) to say if whether I have enough firearms or not?
A great retort to that statement! That would box him in and 20 uhms later he still wouldnt have an answer.
I hadn’t owned a fire arm in over 35 years.
Obama’s comment’s about a national police force sent chills down my spine.
Recently purchased a 12 ga pump.
BTW- the end of the barrel has a little part that can be unscrewed and removed from the inside of the barrel. It’s about 3 inches long.
Anyone know what or why or the purpose.
Whenever some jackass starts using the phrase "common-sense laws," you know he's just trying to do what's called "poisoning the well:"
he's trying to imply that what HE says makes sense, and you do not.
Screw that little brown @sswipe, and the camel he rode in on.
