On The Campaign Trail, Obama Climbs Back On His Anti-Gun Horse

Friday, April 04, 2008

With the Democratic Presidential nomination process turning into what would have been an unthinkably close race only a few months ago, we continue to see the political contenders pulling out all of the rhetorical stops to distinguish themselves as the “candidate of choice” for their constituency. We also continue to see the candidates test the limits of credibility in the process.

Last month, we reported on the hypocrisy of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama. We detailed his advocacy of a law to forbid federally licensed gun dealers from legally selling constitutionally-protected products (firearms) in huge geographical areas, without holding purveyors of pornography to the same standard. Apparently, Obama is in the habit of saying and doing whatever he feels is politically expedient at the time, and for his particular audience. Well, he’s at it again, and changing horses in the middle of the campaign stream.

While on the campaign trail earlier this year, Obama tried to reassure pro-gun voters by telling them, “I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.” But an April 3 article in Townhall.com reports that Obama in now embracing his well-documented anti-gun leanings. “I am not in favor of concealed weapons,” he told the Pittsburgh Tribune. “I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could [get shot during] altercations.” Obama went on to discuss, “…cracking down on the various loopholes that exist in terms of background checks…,” and, “…reasonable, thoughtful gun control measure….”

It obviously comes as no surprise that Obama is anti-gun. In fact, as with Hillary, we are so well aware of Obama’s hostility toward the Second Amendment that in the 2004 elections, NRA’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) issued Obama a well-deserved “F” grade. What’s surprising is that he thinks he can slowly change his message and we won’t notice. Incidentally, in taking his latest position, Obama is opposing the law in 48 of our 50 states, which afford law-abiding citizens a means to carry a concealed firearm for personal protection.

In truth, both candidates’ records are well documented and show, unquestionably, that they’re both anti-gun. (Neither joined more than 300 of their congressional colleagues in signing a brief in the Heller case in support of the Second Amendment.) For either to now try to convince us otherwise is ridiculous.

Seems I've heard that before......and I still agree....so does that make Hillary an enema bag? Neither one of them is worth bumping the brakes...oh, I know, their mamas love them and Jesus died for them, but their actions obscure their intrinsic human value.......quite completely....

BH, you have way too much faith in the good common sense of the voting American public....I, on the other hand, am convinced that the good people of this country are just stupid enough to elect one of them....and that also include the other party's frontrunner..... :eek:

I need to get an AK and an AR before either one of those idiots gets elected.
My sentiments exactly Wizard. In fact I have plans to acquire one of each before the election and plenty of hi-caps. :twisted:

There is nothing "out of the closet" about Obama. He is as anti-gun as they come. Hillary would be better than he is! And that is baaad!

We were just emitting a little sarcasm, but I know you're right. There's one other place in the Kitchen where I was again a bit sarcastic and so i apologize ahead of time. I don't know what came over me Sheepdog. Walking along and suddenly I stubbed my brain.
