    I googled Obama and Guns and couldn't find decent story about it, it doesn't seem that CNN is covering it. So yes, I am posting a foxnews story. Below is a site that was hyperlinked on CNN.

    This is what will happen to your guns if Obama is our next president. Say good-bye to all of the fun stuff. I guess I'll have to convince my wife to let me by an assault rifle before they're banned. LOL...:eusa_dance:

    I heard a clip where Obama said something about being a proponent of stricter gun laws.

    Which means the states where they have guns with few restrictions (and crime rates are low) can look forward to having them taken away, and crime rates escalating.

    yeah, he's changing his tune now into saying that he is Pro-gun. He'll be in Pennsylvania soon, which holds over 1 million hunters.... 600,000 of the population have concealed carry permits, more than any other state, from what the article says. He's changing his tune to rack up votes. Which I'm sure the other candidates do too. As far as guns go, McCain is the only Pro-gun candidate there is. OTher than Ron Paul.....

    Well, here's one liberal that supports loosening restrictions upon, and impediments to, firearm ownership - BUT if you need a license and registration to drive, shouldn't you also need one to carry and use a gun? - Even those areas that have seen crime rates fall as a result of looser gun-control laws still require permitting and registration, no?

    Um... yes. I'm opposed to the AWB.

    But why would any normal person be opposed to registration? You register to vote and you register your car. I want to know if a psychopath has a gun.

    *cough cough*

    I've put just as much shoulder into gun threads as you and i'm sure as hell no conservative. I realize Heston died the other day and all but maybe some evidence is worth more than the same ole routine talking points about the gun issue this time around?

    You only need a license to drive a car on public property.
    You only need to register a car that is used on public property.
    You dont need a license to own a car or use it on private property.
    You dont need to register a car to own it or use it in private property.

    Further:
    Licensing and registration are preconditions placed on the exercise of the right to arms not inherent to same. That is an infringement.
    The right to arms shall not be infringed.

    I didn't vote for registering my vehicle, either. Nor would I today if it were up for the vote. Nor did I vote to require insurance.

    Just because we've done stupid things in the past is no reason to continue to make the same mistakes, over and over.

    Did you really mean to imply that insuring a motor vehicle is stupid?
