    They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

    I know it's not news, but he just put it on his official site. Sorry if it's a repost, but if you want to limit them they should allow searching outside of the main forum.

    Its been on his campaign site for quite some time. http://origin.barackobama.com/issues/urban_policy/#crime-and-law-enforcement I don't know why this is just making the rounds today but it seems to be. Its not really uplifting to know that america has decided to find out a candidates position on the issues a week after they elected him.

    I know it has, and I'm well aware of his history that basically opposes all gun ownership, but I thought it was relevant being that he put it on his .gov site instead of the usual campaign rhetoric.

    While his nutsack riding fanatics have been saying that he's not going to go after guns, it's rather sad that they've just basically ignored this as well as his history against guns. Top that with Biden's/Pelosi/Shumer/Kennedy/Feinsteins very vocal support for not only banning guns put confiscation.

    When I see people say "oh they aren't going to try to take guns away" it makes me realize that those people.....
    A. haven't done any research.
    B. honestly want guns banned
    C. HOPE that somehow it's not going to happen, again.



    I really hope myself that he and Dems don't try it again because I really believe that another AWB attempt could lead to some serious violence.

    People I work with keep saying he wont take our guns away. When I give logic and evidence that he will, they come back with, "Well, he wont do it." and walk off.

    the thing that people are missing about his statement isn't that he and Biden want the AWB back...


    It's the "make it permanent" part. THAT should be what people are focusing on now.

    You don't make a bill like that permanent by bringing it up in congress and voting on it as a bill..

    You make an executive decision and make it law without even bothering to bring it to a vote.

    Really? Aren't all the other crappy gun laws we live with a result of normal legislative procedure? NFA? GCA? 86 ban?

    all of them can also be voted out too. Want them out? get politicians to remove them.

    I'm not really familiar with Executive orders. What are they for and why would a President use one?

    Issuing one as a permanent law seems to me like he'd be overstepping his boundaries as Prez. WTF happened to Checks and Balances?

    I don't think there will be any violence. The "lunatic fringe" isn't even that crazy these days.
