    This sounds like the fearmongering the Roe v Wade extremists have been crying since 1964 and nothing has been done to change the decision.

    Sounds good to me. Anything to convince Americans not to vote for Obama is fine with me. Well as long as it is truthful and not made up shit like Nomdeplume posts.

    Obma ought to come right ans say this:

    "I will veto any law brought before me which changes the current laws regarding gun rights"

    Gun rights is NOT an important issue for this nation, anyway, folks.

    We can pass laws till we're blue in the face but as we can't (or won't) enforce them, why bother?

    If you're referring to “Our members understand that if Barack Obama is elected president, and he has support in the Senate to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court nominees, [the District of Columbia v. Heller decision] could be taken away from us in the future,” I agree. Total FUD.

    They most certainly are. Guns cost the Dems the house in '94 and the presidency in '00 and '04.

    Well, I don't doubt that played a significant part in those defeats.

    But when I say it is not important, I mean that the passing (or not) of those guns laws won't significantly change the quality of life for most Americans.

    The democrapic party is foolish to make an issue of this.

    People who think this issue is really the most important issue facing Americans are just damned fools no matter what side of the debate they are on.

    "If a politician isn't perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash—for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything—without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn't your friend no matter what he tells you."

    in your mind maybe, in my mind, and in the mind of Most of the framers of the Constitution it is very important.

    Infact it was Washington who said something to the effect that the right to bear arms is second in importance only to the constitution itself.

    Many many quotes from our founding fathers in favor of private gun ownership can be found. Nearly non against it can be.

    the Public bearing arms is our most important and last defense against tyranny, not to mention stats show public gun ownership actual lowers violent crime. Don't believe me? look at what happened to Australian Violent crime rates when they passed their anti gun laws. Up by 44%, or look what happened when southern states tried their hand at gun control after the Civil war. Near anarchy with armed gangs running around.

    The right to bear arms is one of our most important rights.

    Charles.
