For someone I consider a fairly intelligent and reasonable person, this is probably one of the most ignorant statements ive seen. Id love to hear him go into this more.In 2004, Obama said he supports a national ban on concealed carry because the states that allow it are "threatening the safety of Illinois residents."
I doubt the majority of his supporters consider his stance on gun control a make or break issue.
I have doubts that Obama would have the votes to get much of anything done on gun control if he were elected. The Democrats in the House are pretty conservative on gun rights. There will not be a repeat of the Assault Weapons Ban unless the Democrats. The Congressional leadership is well aware that they lost control of both houses mainly for that one issue.
I am also a supporter if the second amendment. I am a gun collector and a Duck, Woodcock and Quail Hunter. I dont want my right to bear arms taken away. Remember what happened in England awhile back. The hunters and citizens had to turn their guns in and they were melted down. I cant remember what year though.Why not tell us what you think?
Gun issues aren't as significant to me but I consider myself a supporter of the second amendment. I don't believe, however, that means one must take an unfettered approach to firearms.
