Obama 2008: Law abiding gun owners 'have nothing to fear from an Obama administrationí
Washington Examiner ^ | December 18, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

“Your guns – we’re not going to mess with them. All right?” Obama added during the Pennsylvania event. “I hope I made that clear. Is everyone clear back there in the back? Because I see a couple of sportsmen back there – all right? Spread the word with your friends, I’m not going to take away their guns.”

When the last assault weapons ban and magazine restrictions ban ended, I promptly took advantage. I stocked up. Guessing that future bans will center on having them before the ban, I’m really glad I kept EVERY receipt for everything.

Hey, when guns are oulawed, gun owner’s aren’t law-abiding anymore, are they. Leftist logic covers all bases.

Cut the jobless rate in less than 4 years.
Cut the deficit in half.
Provide free affordable health care.

I’m sure there are countless promises we could tack on the bulletin board.

Political promises have “0” value.

Just like with Clinton: the truth is always a lie that has not yet been revealed. This is the pathology of liberals: they live in a lie, they lie to themselves, the expend mental energy to continually sustain the continually-morphing lie, they lie to their family, they lie to their closet friends, and the reason the have affinity for other liberals has more to do with the need to keep the common themes of the lie alive than that they are offended by other liars. And in the end they lie to the rest of us about what they really want, which even they cannot see because it is evil.

So, we would do anything to protect the children, and we mourn their murder tearfully, yet we must never mention that as a member of the legislature, BHO defended partial birth abortion, and we must never, we must never ever in polite company even mention in passing exactly what that procedure is. Because we would do any thing to protect the children, that is the ones we allow to survive gestation and birth.

Anyone with half a brain, eliminating most Obama supporters, knew he was lying when he said it.

This falls under the “Never believe a Communist” category.

That statement was when I knew that he would devote his second term (if such a terrible thing happened to our country) to destroying our Second Amendment rights and seizing as many guns as possible. I remember hearing that lie, and it gave me a chill.

My thoughts exactly.
All he has to do is change the law, then “law abiding gun owner” will be an oxymoron.

Yep, all you have to do is work backwards from the end goal of total subjugation of the citizenry.

The #1 obstacle to this goal is the armed nature of that citizenry.

Of course.

Whenever Bathouse Barry Benghazi opens his putrid pie-hole, the only real question to ask is "What is the Big Zero lying about this time?"

Everything he said from 2009-2012 is in the past, he will simply state “that was then and this is now”.

Law abiding gun owners 'have nothing to fear from an Obama administration.'

Constitution abiding Obama administration has nothing to fear from gun owners.

I’m not going to take away their guns.”-Obama. 2012

“We don’t want to take away your guns, we ONLY want to register handguns. Rifles and shotguns will not be affected!”-T J Dodd & Emanuel Cellar 1962.

Nelson T. ‘Pete’ Shields
Founder of Handgun Control, Inc.

“I’m convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We’re going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily — given the political realities — going to be very modest. Of course, it’s true that politicians will then go home and say, ‘This is a great law. The problem is solved.’ And it’s also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time. So then we’ll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we’d be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice.

Our ultimate goal — total control of handguns in the United States — is going to take time. My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition — except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors — totally illegal.”

-Pete Shields, Chairman and founder, Handgun Control Inc., “A Reporter At Large: Handguns,” The New Yorker, July 26, 1976, 57-58

“Yes, I’m for an outright ban [on handguns].”

-Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., 60 Minutes interview

Now they also want the rifles and shotguns!
