As a state senator, he supported a ban on -owning- a handgun, not just concealed carry.
Jesus Christ, the main forum idiots are right... * > 09
* > 06+
this is relevant to my interests.
Holy shit, I wish I was like 99% of his voters and hadn't bothered to learn anything else about him besides his punchlines until AFTER the election, then I could be truly enlightened and educated by this thread.
At least the 09 was factually correct. 06 is still the worst.
proof? stop shooting your Republican lies
Eagle eye, literally...
Barack Obama: FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban
Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, "No, my writing wasn't on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns."Actually, Obama's writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:
35. Do you support state legislation to:
a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.
b. ban assault weapons? Yes.
c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.
Obama's campaign said, "Sen. Obama didn't fill out these state Senate questionnaires--a staffer did--and there are several answers that didn't reflect his views then or now. He may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire, but some answers didn't reflect his views."

Sorry, I can't provide the hyperlink because it requires 100 posts on OT. Just Google it. I'm not making this up.
He's just jealous.
I wonder if anyone has told the nra yet?
I cant wait till it's 4 years down the road and we're still just as fucked as we are right now, just to rub it in the faces of all those Obama sackriding faggots.
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.
Clearly nothing to worry about.
The sun is hot.
The sun: FactCheck: Yes, the sun is hot.
The raging inferno of exploding gas at the center of our galaxy (colloquially refered to as "the sun") is indeed hot. Scientists initial estimation of suns temperature could be summed up as "probably pretty hot, like you could maybe fry an egg on it." However, subsequent investigation has revealed that the nuclear fusion reaction at the core of the sun which converts hydrogen into helium and emits massive ammounts of gamma wave radiation get much hotter than was first believed. Scientists now admit that the sun is "really hot."
Sorry, can't post a link.
I'd really like to know why none of this came out before the election. You'd think gun owners would have found something like this out.
