More Evidence Against Barak Obama

April 5th, 2008

I know I have been writing quite a bit on here lately about Barak Obama. But, the truth of the matter is, he has put himself forward as the candidate of honesty and integrity, and he is anything but that in real life. If you are a Barak Obama supporter, I don’t mean to offend you. I write these things so that may be you will be able to see that he isn’t really all he cracks himself up to be.

Obama has been trying to act as if he is for the 2nd Amendment, and the right for Americans to keep and bear arms.  In fact, while campaigning in the Midwest (predominantly “red state” regions), he has included much about how he is for the rights of the people to keep weapons for sporting applications and for self protection (and protection of family).  However, he has been for the handgun ban in Washington D.C., which means that he doesn’t want those people to have the right to protect themselves, or own guns for sporting purposes.  He also tried to get most guns banned in Chicago.  So, I guess he is for your right to keep and bear arms, except when he decides you live in a place that he doesn’t want you to have them!

Recently, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review published a piece about the various candidates positions on the 2nd Amendment, and issues that surround it.  Obama has backed off of his attempts to push for a wide spread registration of guns (which is what he wanted to do in Illinois), probably because it is so unpopular among the American people, and could be his death knell.  He has, however declared that he is against concealed carry.  Now, most states already have conceal carry laws on the books.  Would he push for legislation to repeal those laws by a national law (which could supersede the state laws)?

Alan Gottlieb, the Chairman for  The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), has put his finger on the main point of this issue.  In an article published on Townhall.com, he said:

Barack Obama ignorantly believes that legally-armed Americans are as reckless and irresponsible as the criminals with whom his political sympathies evidently law (sic).”

He went on to say:

He has been insisting for months he supports the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, but here he is now campaigning in Pennsylvania, stating essentially he would prefers Americans not exercise that right.”

The sad truth is that we are seeing the two faces of Barak Obama.  He is for guns when he is in a crowd that wants him to be for guns.  He is against guns when he is in a crowd that wants him to be against guns.  But, how will he legislate?  What is his position when he is in his office all by himself?  I think that is pretty evident.  He is against guns, and will do what he can to make it as difficult as he can to attain guns legally.  His track record in Illinois is enough to show what he will do if he makes it to the “big show”.

If you still think that Barak Obama will protect your rights to keep your guns (and buy new ones), then you better wake up!  Bill Clinton was the worst president we have every had as it applies to this issue.  Hillary would be in th same vein.  Al Gore was defeated, primarily on this issue.  But, Barak Obama is probably worse than all of them!  He doesn’t want you to be able to buy a gun, or own a gun.  Are you willing to accept that?
