Principles that Obama supports on gun issues:
-Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
-Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.
-Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.

They start with your guns...
And then they take your babies.
Cyclops, I would love to believe him, but look at what I posted, if you ignore the semi-automatic ban (which I've never seen/heard him repudiate) there are still plenty of bans that he does support and has voted for.
The SCOTUS ruling have made me more open to voting for Obama, but I also realize that with the house/senate and executive brance all democratic, what would stop them from banning more guns? It might not even be Obama that would do it, the Senate could write a law that would ban all guns, it could pass the house, and Obama might face political pressure to vote for it (they could bundle it with a bill he does support for example (like his health care plan)).
He surely wouldn't fight FOR the 2nd amendment if the Senate/House chose to leglislate against my rights, would he?
If u wanna look at a black who supports
the right to self defense and to possession
of defensive emergency equipment
that is defended by the 2nd Amendment: look at Condi Rice!
I can support her,
but Obama: Please !
We are not THAT dumb.
Its ez to see where his real opinions are.
He is very intensely anti-gun; he can hardly contain it,
but he knows what happened to Clinton (lost both houses of Congress)
and Al Gore -- even lost his own home state,
so he just lies about it.
Are you out of your mind? . . .
How can you think such a thing would ever happen?
You are either a racist, or you have been intentionally using racist terminology in order to rile people up.
You have no evidence to back up your accusations,
but I suppose that's never stopped you in the past, so why should it now?
Maporsche, face it. There's no evidence to support the idea that Obama wants to ban your guns.
In this mornings newspaper, there's an article about the NRA filming mineworkers in WVA, and they were trying to coerce miners to say bad things about Obama. The result is that the miners are going to strike in protest.

Dave, you are coming off as bitter, paranoid, and out of touch...
Are you out of your mind? A ban on all guns, passed in the Senate? How can you think such a thing would ever happen? And it isn't even Constitutional to do so; the recent SC ruling proves that.
