    Just wanted to make sure that you knew that Obama voted against a law that was designed to allow out of state trapshooters at Sparta to buy guns and ammo without a FOID card. This was only one of 4 anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment votes that Obambi made as a IL State Senator. More at the link. Any trapshooter or gun owner that would vote for the POS is a fool.

    From Erik Erikson at Redstate:

    "In 2002, Obama voted against S.B. 397 (IL 2002), which amended the Firearms Owners Indentification Card Act. The legislation was specifically crafted for sporting events and allowed a non-resident participating in a sanctioned competitive shooting event in Illinois to purchase a shotgun or shotgun ammunition in Illinois, but only at the site where the event is being held, for the purpose of participating in the event."

    Does this "SUPRISE ANYONE"????!!!! Of course he did! He is a socialist commie piece of crap! 99.9% of people on here(who are REALLY SHOOTERS) are opposed to this MORON!(there are a few FOOLS in any camp). It's convincing the idiots who support this BOZO that would prove difficult!

    Maybe I shouldn't have posted his anti-Sparta vote because all the Ohio diehards will now vote for him. LOL

    JBrooks....

    What surprises me is that there hasn't already been a organized "BTO Movement".

    Not only is Obama against guns and has he voted against anything that would relax the laws in the State of Illinois and the rest of the United States but he has voted in favor of every tax increase that has come up ... The guy is a true Muslim at heart so I wonder how he will ever sit between the flags in the Oval Office if elected, one being the American Flag and the other being the Flag of the seal of the President of the United States ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Politicians are the only people in the world

    who create problems and then campaign against them.



    Have you ever wondered why, if both the

    Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?



    Have you ever wondered why, if all the

    politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?



    You and I don't propose a federal budget.

    The president does.



    You and I don't have the Constitutional

    authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.



    You and I don't write the tax code, Congress

    does.



    You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress

    does.



    You and I don't control monetary policy, the

    Federal Reserve Bank does.



    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one

    president, and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 300 million - are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.



    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve

    Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its

    Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.



    I excluded all the special interests and

    lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a

    senator, a congressman, or a president to do one

    cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The

    politician has the power to accept or reject it. No

    matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he

    votes.



    Those 545 human beings spend much of their

    energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con

    regardless of party.



    What separates a politician from a normal

    human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a

    Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.



    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of

    the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving

    appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? She is the leader of the majority party. She and fellow House members, not the

    president, can approve any budget they want. If the

    president vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.



    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of

    300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.



    If the tax code is unfair, it's because they

    want it unfair.



    If the budget is in the red, it's because they

    want it in the red.



    If the Army & Marines are in IRAQ, it's

    because they want them in IRAQ.



    If they do not receive social security but are

    on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.



    There are no insoluble government problems.



    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to

    bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they

    give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.



    Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces

    like 'the economy,' 'inflation,' or 'politics' that

    prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.



    Those 545 people, and they alone, are

    responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.



    They, and they alone, should be held

    accountable by the people who are their bosses -

    provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.



    We should vote all of them out of office and

    clean up their mess!

    It's the fault of the 300 million who vote these 545 idiots into office.<br>

    Put the responsibility directly where it belongs.

    Holy flypaper, Batman!

    That's the best political essay I have seen in a very long time.

    If you go to B.O.'s website, you can read all about how he thinks we need keep weapons out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them. That in itself doesn't sound so bad but what's the definition of a person who shouldn't own a gun that will be used to make that determination? He also comes right out and states that the Clinton assault Weapons Ban that congress allowed to expire should be renewed. You know, the one that almost made our autoloading Beretta and Remington trap guns illegal to own.

    John McCain, on the other hand, is no-holds-barred in his defense of the Second Amendment and sportsmen's rights as openly stated on his website. I cannot see why any gun owner would have to think twice about who most deserves his or her vote.
