Skip to comments.Obama supports some gun control
Posted on 02/02/2009 9:31:36 PM PST by george76
The Obama administration, cited by many Georgia gun owners as the reason they applied for concealed-carry permits last year, supports restrictions on certain kinds of guns and certain kinds of gun sales.
Brundage said Obama supports reviving the expired ban on assault weapons and making it permanent. And he backs closing the gun show loophole, ...
Obama said: This has been peddled again and again. Heres what I believe
people have the right to bear arms. But I also believe there is nothing wrong with some common-sense gun safety measures.

Shocked, SHOCKED, I say!
Hey Bamster - concentrate on keeping this country from terrorist attacks and from having a world class economic meltdown. After you accomplish all that, if you can that is, then maybe you can screw around with the 2nd Amendment.
Oh? Does he now?
When he says “common sense gun control” be afraid. That has definite Chicago meaning.
Here it comes, folks.
If you’re not already, it’s time to go into debt to buy guns and ammo. Don’t forget to buy armor while you’re at it.
BHO supported the DC gun ban, then pretended otherwise.
Zero means the crooks can have all the guns they want. The average American, however, must be controlled. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.
Those foolish common sense laws gave us Columbine, cre4ating killing zones for the depraved and criminally minded amongst our own kids.
Gee, I wonder where the new AG stands on this? /s
Obama is for complete confiscation of ALL firearms (from law-abiding and patriotic Americans who he says cling to their Bibles and their guns).
I believe Obama is keenly aware of the founder’s purpose for the 2nd Amendment and would like nothing more to make an end-run around that as a self-defense move for his socialistic plans.
perhaps now you people understand why “the one” wants a filibuster proof Senate.
following this his new Civilian Military will be activated to enforce martial law
i kid you not
Common sense coming from a raving moonbat socialist?ROTFLMAO.That just aint gonna fly there presbo.
What ammo deal to cost 100 dollars now costs 200 dollars.
What magazine-fed rifle used to cost 1500 dollars now costs 3500 dollars.
Glad I got everything before The Big Scare.
Treat every firearm as if it is loaded, always.
Never point the firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy
Never place your finger on the trigger until you are ready to shoot.
Be sure of what is beyond your target, and make sure nothing you do not want to hit is in the line of fire.
Always use enough gun.
The only time you can have too much ammo is when you are either on fire or trying to swim with it.
It is never a question of how many rounds are in the magazine, the one which will do damage is the one in the chamber.
Never hand a loaded firearm to a dumbass (see the first rule).
Never let a bunch of citified wussies make arbitrary and ridiculous rules for country boys who won't follow them anyway.
So what's the problem here? If I can't have a gun, I'll steal one!
Of course Obama is a liar. He is for draconian anti-gun laws with a goal of disarming law abiding citizens.
Eric Holder is his AG because of Holder’s anti-gun positions. My only question is how far and how fast he will try to disarm the people and how will the people respond.
When he says common sense gun control be afraid. That has definite Chicago meaning.
***He has “common sense?” Why do you think I chose my tagline? My husband’s been after me to join and I finally did. Wise man.***
What do you mean “now”? I was yelling about this before the auction, er, election. :P
Taking the Second Amendment seriously is the first step toward protecting the country from terrorists — it’s the basic constitutional provision for “the security of a free state”. If he wants to play economic stimulus, he ought to give a tax credit for $100 for anyone who takes an armed self-defense course.
Some of us had financial reasons that we couldn’t stock up or were too young before the first ban, you know. :P
Every time I read of one of them claiming this BS, I believe it begs a followup question. What gun restrictions would you NOT support? What WOULDN'T be "common sense" to you?
You'd better believe he knew EXACTLY what the Framers were thinking! That's whaat mkes him so dangerous......
An armed America is a free America.
The Assault Weapons Ban that he plans to revive would have an additional clause. That clause would allow the Attorney General to add any specific weapon to the list at any time without any review or approval by anyone other than himself.
Sorry “Zero”, all I hear is blah, blah, blah...
The only answers you will get is the bills that Obama signs.
One man's common sense is another man's folly
According to Dr. John Lott, he met Obama a few times in passing when they were both at University of Chicago. The first time Lott introduced himself to the new ConLaw guy. Obama said, “Oh, you’re the gun guy, aren’t you?”.
Lott said, “Yeah, I guess I am.”
Obama said, “I don’t think people should be allowed to own guns”, and walked away.
This is from an article in the Chicago Defender from Dec 13, 1999. I don’t think that I am supposed to post the whole thing, so I will just paste some highlights.
“Obama unveils federal gun bill
Sweeping federal gun control legislation proposed by Sen. Barack Obama (D-13th) would increase the penalties on gun runners who are flooding Chicago’s streets with illegal weapons.
At an anti-gun rally held at the Park Manor Christian Church, 600 E. 73rd St., headed by the Rev. James Demus, Obama also said he’s backing a resolution being introduced into the City Council by Alds. Toni Preckwinkle (4th), Ted Thomas (15th), Leslie Hairston (5th) to call for a “shot-free” millennium celebration.
Obama outlined his anti-gun plan that includes increased penalties for the interstate transportation of firearms. The maximum penalty now for bringing a gun across the border is 10 years in prison.
Obama is proposing to make it a felony for a gun owner whose firearm was stolen from his residence which causes harm to another person if that weapon was not securely stored in that home.
He’s proposing restricting gun purchases to one weapon a month and banning the sale of firearms at gun shows except for “antique” weapons. Obama is also proposing increasing the licensing fee to obtain a federal firearms license.
He’s also seeking a ban on police agencies from reselling their used weapons even if those funds are used to buy more state-of-the-art weapons for their agencies. Obama wants only those over 21 who’ve passed a basic course to be able to buy or own a firearm.
He’s proposing that all federally licensed gun dealers sell firearms in a storefront and not from their homes while banning their business from being within five miles of a school or a park. He’s also banning the sale of ‘junk” handguns like the popular Saturday Night Specials.”
“He’s also asking that gun manufacturers be required to develop safety measures that permit only the original owner of the firearm to operate the weapon purchased.”
“Let’s send a message that we can have a New Year’s eve where no one fires a weapon either for the reason of violence or as a celebration,” said Obama.
Yes, it keeps getting peddled again and again because socialists keep trying to ban firearms. Why is this so hard to see?
Obama supports reviving the expired ban on assault weapon
Guess that means get a few more immediately.
how will the people respond
Ha, that will be the last straw for many
We have plenty of “common sense” gun laws already!
I KNEW IT. Obama is against the 2nd Amendment. Better cling to your guns people, he wants to take away our guns(Well I dont own one but still) well we all knew this was gonna happen didn’t we
Any they can demonize
and certain kinds of gun sales.
All of them if possible, but as many as they can at any rate.
I love revolvers and shotguns myself, and I hear they are still abundant.
It's the magazine-fed pistols and rifles that are hard to find, no?
Um, no. Pretty much everything in an effective caliber is in high demand. The highest demand *is* for battle rifles and so-called “assault weapons” as well as magazine-fed pistols.
Detachable magazine-fed shotguns were in high demand by 2006. I have one, a Saiga-12. Unfortunately, the only way I was able to get it was via dealer several years ago, so the government knows I have it.
I expect the S-12 to go on the ban list shortly.
Which reminds me, I need to buy more of the US-made mags and parts for that S12 pretty much *yesterday*.
He's an impostor and everything he does as the impostor anti-president is null and void.
Also unfortunate is the fact that since this idiot is likely to start banning stuff left and right, I won’t be able to buy one of these before they’re banned:
(Production was just starting.)
It's interesting to have a Constitutional Law professor who can interpret those confusing words "shall not be infringed" for us. Usurper 333 (not the Beast, just half-way there) is not what this country needs.
Wow, how nice of the LameStream Media to finally scrutinize what Hussein believes.
I thought you told me it fell in the lake while you were duck hunting..
That's the last time either of these Rino's will get my vote or my money
Sad to hear they voted for him. I didn’t write either one of them, mistakenly assumed they would use their conscience.
