Maporsche, face it. There's no evidence to support the idea that Obama wants to ban your guns.
HOW can you say this? NO evidence? Really? His voting record, his statments on various types of gun bans....what they just don't count anymore?
I own a hand gun, a shot gun, and an "assault rifle"....there are positions that Obama has taken in favor of banning 2 of the 3 types of guns I own. I'm sure I can find something for the shotgun too if I look hard enough.
And a ban isn't the only thing I'm afraid of; how about increased taxes on ammo/firearms, severe restrictions on ownership, more burden on gun owners (trigger locks and all that garbage).
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.
A minor problem here; justices are appointed by the president, and Heller was decided by one vote.
David, you are the one forwarding the argument; the burden lies upon YOU to present factual information to back it up, not on the other person to disprove your lies. Nobody takes you seriously on A2K, in large part b/c you refuse to do even basic research or link to evidence when you post.
"Sure"....aren't you the one telling me that it's because of the presidents likelihood to pick SC judges this election that I shoud be voting for Obama. If your rebuttal here is supposed to be enough to quell my concerns about Obama and gun control, then the same statement should also be enough to quell anyone's concerns about abortion right?
I care more about gun control than I do about abortion.
Obama is quoted as being in favor of certain types of gun bans (specifically handguns, like in his beloved Chicago, where I live)
As far as my assertions...here you go, plenty to read http://www.ontheissues.org/2008/Barack_Obama_Gun_Control.htm.
McCain favors outlawing cheaply made handguns called Saturday night specials, and favors mandating safety locks on certain guns
McCain said he was open to voting for an assault weapon ban, depending on the details.
Re: Cycloptichorn(Post 3411888)
Obama said he'll protect the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution,
but some people would rather create issues from their
imagination and apply them to Obama. Fear works for conservatives.
You're just showing are radical you are.
There's only "one" interpretation to the 2nd amendment. "...to bear arms..."
Notice all the VOTES agains gun control that McCain has though.
They far outweigh his statements.
