    Obama Opposed Gun Ban Exception to Defend One’s Home
    by KEITH KOFFLER on JANUARY 11, 2013, 9:58 AM
    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.

    Obama’s vote would have maintained the status quo, which made it a violation of municipal gun ban law to use a firearm to save your own life in your own home. But the bill was passed anyway without his support.

    The vote is a sign of how committed Obama may be to strict gun control measures.

    Some would still defend themselves, law or no law. We have a right to use whatever force necessary to stop someone from harming or killing us. Not just whatever means some dictator says we can have. We have a right to own a gun and the right to shoot anyone who breaks in and tries to harm us. I laws to the contrary are made, they are against our rights and merely the whim of dictators.

    Smart people who value their rights and their lives will tell you that the would-be murderer deserves to die, not the intended victim. Intelligent citizens would rather be judged by 12 people than carried by 6.
