Barack Obama’s Gun Control Record Revealed

Barack Obama’s Gun Control Record Revealed

Somehow, there are people who confess they are gun owners, who keep saying that Barack Obama is no threat to the Second Amendment.  They actually go so far as to say that he has strengthened the Second Amendment during his first term.

Short post today, first, as I have discussed before, he HAD to accept the Amendment to the Credit Card Reform bill that allowed carrying of firearms in National Parks.  He had the chance to allow guns in parks on its own and he refused.  That means HE WAS AGAINST THE BILL.

Then there are his Supreme Court Judges, specifically Sotomayor who lied to congress about her belief in the Second Amendment only to rule against its definition of an individual right the first time it came up.

Now, lets look at a quick rundown of where the President really stands on the issues:

  • Renews support for gun control through UN Arms Trade Treaty (Nov 2012)
  • Calls to renew the Assault Weapons Ban (Oct 2012)
  • I believe in 2nd Amendment, but not war weapons on streets. (Oct 2012)
  • Fast-and-Furious: no prosecutions for Mexican gun/drug snafu. (Jun 2012)
  • Tells Sarah Brady will continue to push gun control “under the radar” (March 2011)
  • Opposed bill okaying illegal gun use in home invasions. (Aug 2008)
  • Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
  • FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
  • Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
  • Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing. (Jan 2008)
  • 2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month. (Oct 2007)
  • Concealed carry OK for retired police officers. (Aug 2007)
  • Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities. (Jul 2007)
  • Keep guns out of inner cities–but also problem of morality. (Oct 2006)
  • Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban. (Oct 2004)
  • Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions. (Jul 1998)
  • Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)

That is Obama’s REAL record on the issue of the Second Amendment from his time in Chicago through this past week..  Lip service saying he “believes in the 2nd Amendment” but does everything he can to marginalize and eliminate it.  Voted for bans and draconian limits on purchasing.  Opposed measures to protect firearm industry from frivolous lawsuits hoping to bankrupt them. Pushing a treaty that will impose gun controls from a foreign entity.  And refuses to hold anyone accountable for a gun walking program that has killed Americans that was, despite his lies, begun under HIS administration to foster a public outcry for more gun control.

So if you are reading this and are a Obama supporter, that’s fine because you are free to support whosoever you choose in this country.

Just stop trying to pass off Obama like some 2nd Amendment Champion when in reality he is a gun grabbing Chicago politician who will be a gun control champion now that he doesn’t have to be re-elected anymore.  If you can look at a mountain of evidence of word and deed and keep your head buried in the sand then even Obama coming to your home, ripping the gun from your hand and pistol whipping you with it because he doesn’t believe you should have it, wouldn’t be enough to get your off the kool aid.

He hates the Second Amendment and has a record fighting against it that goes back 15 years. I fear if left unchecked, his reach into the future will be much longer.

    Some of the gun laws are good, most are bad and The President needs to leave them alone. we have the right to protect our life and home. simi-auto weapons are a good gun for protection, not machine guns. machine guns should be banned personally speaking. Tell Our president to please leave the gun laws alone and let us choose what we want to do. Thank you.

      Obama, the Government, Law Enforcement can not protect us. We need to be able to protect ourselves. Illegals, criminals on the loose. B & E, robberies, attacks. Leave my guns alone. I will protect my family since you can not and WILL not.

      What machine guns are you speaking of? Please describe what you are referring to as a “Machine Gun” please

      “Personally speaking,” is right. You may not want a fully automatic weapon, but why should that mean that I don’t have the right to get one? Please, repeal the bogus gun restrictions and let me do what I want to do.

    “The Second amendment is not about hunting deer or keeping a pistol in your nightstand. It is not about protecting oneself against common criminals. It is about preventing tyranny. The Founders knew that unarmed citizens would never be able to overthrow a tyrannical government as they did. They envisioned government as a servant, not a master, of the American people. The muskets they used against the British Army were the assault rifles of that time. It is practical, rather than alarmist, to understand that unarmed citizens cannot be secure in their freedoms.”

    I wonder why folks think it’s smart to ignore facts and history?

      To answer your query Joanna, I think that many people would rather hide under their blankets, write off facts and dismiss the danger of history repeating itself as the paranoia of rabble rousers. It is easier to live in ignorance than it is to remember Reagan’s words: ” Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” and fight to maintain it.

      “Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the numbers of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it.” -Patrick Henry

    It’s a myth that the Democrats are attempting to disarm Americans and abolish the second amendment but believe what you choose to believe.

    • Tony Oliva

      A myth? Blue dog democrats are all but extinct. What you have left are the Dianne Feinsteins of the world and i quote: “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them — Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in — I would have done it.”

      So, is the Democratic Senior Senator for California in on this “myth” as well tommy?

      Then why did Obama call for a permanent ban on “assault weapons?” (Note: not the real selective fire military weapons, but self-loading firearms that look scary to democrats, including .22 rim-fire Olympic target pistols?

      Right on, Tommy. But the paranoia in the Right runs hopelessly deep. We democrats should arm ourselves so that when we run across the militia types whose real desire is to kill us and our president off– who happens also to be the country’s president– we can just shut them up. j

        “In 1921 Adolf Hitler formed his own private army called Sturm Abteilung (Storm Section). The SA (also known as stormtroopers or brownshirts) were instructed to disrupt the meetings of political opponents and to protect Hitler from revenge attacks.”

        Sounds like you’d fit right in.

    Just remember, when a seconds count, a policeman is minutes away. We have the right to defend ourselves. The Police will not and are not able to be everywhere at once. We need to be certain that we keep our rights to bear arms not only against the criminal that may harm us but the big government that will try to do the same. The right to bear arms is the last line of defense against a tyranical government that will try in every way to insure that we have no rights whatsoever. They go after the guns first because they know as long as we have them, they cannot force anything. Pray for each and every leader of each and every state and nation. Pray that God works through them to do His will.

    You already said Obama Supporters. The rest is pretty much easy to understand. If they had a clue they wouldn’t support Obama in the first place.

    Fully auto guns are alread illegal. Obama wants to make semi auto only AK’s and AR’s illegal too. He classifies them as (assault weapons).

    First your AR’s/AK’s, then later, all your other semi auto guns. Even your plinker 22 LR.

    What a shame that someone so illiterate has the other Constitutional mandate– freedom of speech. What are you little boys doing with your guns? What do you need them for? I mean, maybe this slogan is the right one for you guys: “Does this gun make my dick look big?”
