#GunControl: As State Senator Obama Opposed Gun Ban Exception to Defend One’s Home


Why am I not surprised
[ZIP]As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home.
The bill passed anyway much to bronco bamas dismay, I suppose.


Just eight years earlier, in 1996, Obama answered “Yes” to a survey question asking whether he would support state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.” The Obama 2008 presidential campaign claimed the form had been filled out by an aide who mischaracterized Obama’s position, even though Obama’s handwriting was found on survey.

1 And he voted FOR allowing newborns to be left to die of exposure, which makes all his BS about "doing this to protect children" worthy of projectile vomiting in his face.

2 I do not need permission from any government to be able to defend myself, my family or my property. If you live in a state where you cannot legally defend yourself, your freedoms are lost already. Keep your paws off mine.

3 In order to control the people, you must disarm them. The thugs who care not for obeying current gun laws just may be the shock troops/brownshirts (offered blanket pardon/immunity) of his citizen army. Our authentic military already has enlisted some undesirables over the past several years. Those are probably some that would fire on us Americans for practicing our rights. I want to believe most of our military wouldn't, though. I wouldn't want to fire back on them, either.

Ero: I still have a lot of friends connected with the Military as well as Law Enforcement. They have told me in no uncertain terms will they either go door to door to collect guns, nor will they fire on American citizens defending their rights. That doesn't mean there wouldn't be some asshole that would. You and I know there's always a rotten apple in the barrel. I don't know who Obama is going to get to collect the guns, but if he thinks we are turning them in, he's going to be sadly mistaken. If he gets the UN to do his dirty work, well the fights on at that point and welcome to the new American Civil War.

5 My government wishes to outlaw by ability to protect my family but allow me to use pot. Wouldn't a certain element high on drugs create an even greater need for guns for self protection? Strange times we live in.
