Or at least he will if he is re-elected.
I have often heard from those who plan on voting for Obama this fall, that he has not moved for any gun control measures, that he is not against guns and that he is not a threat to the Second Amendment.
All of which are false. And I can prove it.
First of all there are the obtuse reasons. The fact that his Attorney General Eric Holder in 1995 is quoted as saying “we need to brainwash people against guns”. This from the same Attorney General who has stonewalled congress in regards to the Fast & Furious scandal that was reportedly a scheme to promote gun violence in order to pass new gun control measures.
Then there are the words of the President himself who said, while on the campaign trail in 2008, of Pennsylvanians that “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion”. Well, as a Pennsylvanian myself I will tell the President this, I cling to my religion because I am faithful, I cling to my guns because I am an American. If that makes you bitter Mr. President, I think the issue lies with you.
Now for his voting record. While it is true that he has not overtly passed any legislation against the Second Amendment in his first term a look at his past will show that he is a consistent and constant believer in the disassembling of that right.
So, on the quick rundown of votes and quotes above. He respects the Second Amendment but also feels that any town or city can completely ban firearms. That’s like supporting the First Amendment…as long as no one says anything. He has consistently backed the banning of firearms. Wanted to allow the bankruptcy of the firearm industry by allowing frivolous lawsuits and just to top it off, limit the purchasing of firearms to one a month. He has a track record of being anti gun long before he became President and when he doesn’t have to worry about re-elections he will show his true colors once more.
But as I think about it, he didn’t even wait to get re-elected before he starting making his move. As he told told Sarah Brady in regards to gun control when he dropped in on a meeting to “fill [them] in that is very much on his agenda.”
Obama: “I just want you to know we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
If you are wondering what “under the radar” means, I would wager a guess that it has something to do with submitting American sovereignty to the United Nations
Other under the radar type moves. Lets take a look at his Supreme Court nominees. Both Justice Kagan and Sotomayor, in testimony before congress flatly claimed that they believed in the Second Amendment. Sotomayer even said she would follow the precedent set by Heller…that lasted until she voted against McDonald.
So, with a record of voting for and supporting extreme gun control measures, with the appointment of 2 anti gun Supreme Court justices, the appointment of an Attorney General who believes they must “brainwash people to turn against guns”, the promotion of a treaty that would give up American Sovereignty for worldwide gun control, and for his casual and utter disdain for gun owners in general, can anyone honestly believe, that without having to be re-elected that President Obama, in his second term, will not be the terror to the Second Amendment that he is so eager to be?
