Obama and your guns

How does Obama vote on guns? Look

Here too

Thanks Michael!

Interesting that you’d rather believe the spin from a right-wing pressure group, than what the candidate actually says.

Obama on guns

The pair of you should start checking the occasional fact.

Gerry,

Is the NRA lying? yes or no

Looks like it to me, their message is clearly not what Obama is saying.

Gerry

I noticed Obama did not address a single point the NRA mentioned.

Nothing about what type of guns.
Nothing about what type of ammo.
Nothing.

That’s quite right, HE HAS SAID NOTHING on the subject, has the NRA got a crystal ball? or are they just psychic?

Or are they a right wing lobbyist group?

want any more help with that Mike, let me know!!

If Obama Is Pro-Gun, Why Are Leading Anti-Gun and Anti-Hunting Groups Endorsing Him?

More Fun Facts

On the Second Amendment, Don’t Believe Obama

But his real record, based on votes taken, political associations, and long standing positions, shows that Barack Obama is a serious threat to Second Amendment liberties. Don’t listen to his campaign rhetoric! Look instead to what he has said and done during his entire political career.

I got no clue Mike, maybe they think he’s the best candidate, no single issue realy has that much effect.

Gerry

Gerry,

It’s the same on the abortion issue( and most others )

Groups endorse the candidate that they believe will advance their cause.

The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.

I never listen seriously to what anyone says regardless of the letter behind their names. Politicians lie! That is all anyone has to know about campaign promises. Most of what they say they are going to do they can’t, either by law or by the circumstances existing at the time…and they all know this. Look at what they have DONE! Generally, they have repeatedly done the opposite of what they say they are going to do, especially if they are lawyers. They are trained to lie or parse the truth. That having been said;

From the horses mouth. “I will not going to take your shotgun away, I won’t take your rifle away, I will not take your handgun away”, Obama.

Sportsmen for Obama

.

Of course he supports the second amendment. It’s in the constitution he will have to swear to uphold.

He mentions common sense laws.
Who’s common sense?
The gun toting conservative or the anti gun liberal?

And no discussion of his past voting record on the issue.
Makes me go Hmmmm?

Obama will be just about as successful at changing the 2nd Amendment as Ronald Reagan & George Bush I & II were in ending Row V. Wade, it just ain’t within the scope of their office and way above their pay grade. :mrgreen:

The danger doesn’t lie with Obama, it lies in the fact that an Obama presidency will remove any semblance of balance from the government.

This campaign really began 8 years ago. The left has done a fantastic job of getting the public to believe that all of our woes originate from the right. “Schoolgirl whining” obviously works. Unfortunately our financial, social, and economic dillemas are a direct and irrefutable result of a left-wing welfare philosophy that no right-winger wanted to be seen as opposing…stuffing people into the middle class that clearly didn’t belong there was not the fault of the right.

Now the right also stands to lose seats in congress further giving the crybabies their way. In the end, an Obama presidency is far more dangerous than just our guns. If the left gains complete control of every arm of government, we’d all better stock up on either ammunition or vaseline and wave goodbye to America.

Not true Joe, Obama, If elected very well could have the opportunity to seat two supreme court justices, who will be radically liberal like Obama. Once this happens, you may want to keep a look out for the guys in the black suits, there the ones who are going to pry your guns from your cold dead fingers. :wink:

Goes a lot deeper than hope & change for sure!
