    OK, where are Obama's "useful idiots" here who said Obama supports the second Amendment, and the other tools who claimed the Supreme Court decision would not let this happen? Thanks, you misguided, easily fooled Fudds.<br>
    <br>
    "Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets."

    You could predict even before he put it on his website that he would:

    1. Re-instate the "assault weapons" ban
    2. Close the gun show "loophole"

    The only thing that surprises me is that he propses both of tehse within a day after he is elected. I thought that he woudl have waited a month or so.

    My only consolation is that I live in New Jersey. We already have an "assault weapons" ban and the state government has already closed the gun show "loophole" in New Jersey.

    It makes common sense that obama-biden would state they support the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. This is only a smoke screen statement.

    Fellow shooters, what do you think will happen when he implements his 500% tax on guns and ammo. Just imagine the price of a box of Winchester AA costing $48. THERE WON'T BE ANY AMMO TO BUY. THERE WON'T BE ANY GUNS TO BUY. THERE WON'T BE ANY MANUFACTURES IN BUSINESS. THERE WON'T BE ANY GUN CLUBS IN BUSINESS. GUN SHOWS GONE FOREVER. GRAND AMERICAN GONE FOREVER. MISSOURI FALL HANDICAP GONE FOREVER.

    The 2nd Amendment, HA! They won't need it to complete their anti-gun agenda.

    Keep in mind, this just ain't obama-biden doing us in, how much of this do we hold the blue states responsible?

    Stores say gun-control fears spur firearms sales

    By ANGELA K. BROWN

    Associated Press

    Nov. 6, 2008, 4:47PMShare


    Print Email Del.icio.usDiggTechnoratiYahoo! BuzzFORT WORTH — While watching Republican presidential candidate John McCain's concession speech, gun owner AJ Sullivan had a sinking feeling.

    "Liberals like to ban guns. That's what it comes down to," said Sullivan, 25, a Texas Christian University student.

    Sullivan was among hundreds scrambling to buy a weapon Thursday at the gun store Cheaper Than Dirt! — which sold $101,000 in merchandise the day after the election, shattering its single-day sales record, said store owner DeWayne Irwin.

    Stories were similar across Texas, where residents are fiercely protective of their Second Amendment rights and now fear stricter gun-control laws under Democratic President-elect Barack Obama.

    "There's a mindset here of freedom, and you've bitten off more than you can chew if you think you can come after Texans' guns," said Charlissa Stokes, co-owner of Panhandle Gunslingers, an Amarillo shooting range and gun store where sales have doubled the last few days.

    At Houston's Memorial Shooting Center, gun sales are up 70 percent and "the whole wall of assault rifles is gone," said manager Richard Poulis.

    Fort Worth's Cheaper Than Dirt! reported about $480,000 in sales in October 2007 but $890,000 last month, jumping to $1 million including the first four days of November, Irwin said. About half of the sales are guns, mostly assault rifles and other weapons that would be subject to the assault-weapons ban if it is reinstated, he said.

    President Bush and Congress allowed it to expire in 2004, 10 years after President Clinton signed the ban into law.

    "A few weeks before the election most customers were younger and weren't old enough to buy guns in '94 when the assault-weapons ban took effect, but they'd heard stories from their parents," Irwin said. "On Wednesday, the older folks woke up and said, 'Oh, crap. McCain didn't win, and Obama's going to ban guns,' and they came in here. There's also a Democratic Congress, so they're saying it's going to happen."

    Obama has said he supports an individual's rights to own guns with reasonable restrictions, so it seems that a "narrow subsection" of gun owners are afraid of being denied access to assault weapons, said Doug Pennington, spokesman for the Brady Campaign, which supported the weapons ban.

    National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said it does not track U.S. gun sales, but anecdotal evidence at stores in recent weeks indicates many residents "didn't buy Obama's spin." The 4 million-member NRA had distributed literature claiming Obama would be "the most anti-gun president in American history" and said anti-gun groups endorsed him.

    Mark Mendiaz, 35, said he voted for Obama because he felt the country was headed in the wrong direction and never heard the candidates discuss gun control. But Mendiaz, a Navy veteran who owns a handgun and rifle, said he started thinking about it after receiving NRA postcards.

    On Thursday Mendiaz bought an AR-15, a semiautomatic rifle similar to what soldiers use, for target practice or to sell later, he said.

    "If there's going to be a ban, it just creates a market," Mendiaz said. "The bad people probably have them, and the honest people will probably get left out."



    The range I was at today have sold more ar's then before the election.

    His new chief of staff will get the job of pushing the ban immediately. Look at his bio, especially item 1.3.

    Do not ever make the mistake of thinking that Obama and his commie skunk pals are only after so-called "assault weapons". Take a good hard look at this pic of all the "assault wepaons" that were turned in for destruction according to the law in Australia.

    Maybe he could make new gun bans apply only to the idiots who voted for him. Think they would go for that? Guns are really selling, I ordered a new AR 15 upper today and there is a 6 to 7 week wait for delivery. Just so it gets here before Ocommies coronation, I'll be satisfied. Already well stocked-up ammo wise...Bill

    It is tough to read the names when they are pasted like that I know, but you can google HR 1022 and click on the first link. Odd, I don't see one R next to any of those names.

    Don't relax for a minute. This is their chance, what they have been waiting for.

    Why don't we just put our heads in the sand. You know we still have power to impeach these SOBs if they think they can pull this crap. A bunch of Dems will be up for re-election in two years and if their name is on the list above let's dump their a**es. Never forget "the will of the people". Osama was elected because all the dumbies think he is some kind of savior and will get us out of this mess. It was the Dems that caused it in the first place. The queer Franks is among the worst along with Reed, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer, etc. etc. Let them pull this crap and let's go after them. They are not untouchable, we can impeach each and every one of them if necessary.
