    As gun sales shoot up around the country, President-elect Barack Obama said Sunday that gun-owning Americans do not need to rush out and stock up before he is sworn in next month.

    "I believe in common-sense gun safety laws, and I believe in the second amendment," Obama said at a news conference. "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear. I said that throughout the campaign. I haven't indicated anything different during the transition. I think people can take me at my word."

    But National Rifle Association spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said it's not Obama's words — but his legislative track record — that has gun-buyers flocking to the stores.

    "Prior to his campaign for president, his record as a state legislator and as a U.S. Senator shows he voted for the most stringent forms of gun control, the most Draconian legislation, gun bans, ammunition bans and even an increase in federal excise taxes up to 500 percent for every gun and firearm sold," Arulanandam said.

    It so awful to actually have strict guns laws in a country that says a kid at 18 can't have a beer but can have a handgun. You rednecks are so backwards and live in the 1800's and you wonder why we have thousands of more gun deaths per year than the rest of the world.

    God you gun people that are against strict laws are absolutely amazing to me. Why the fuck are you so in love with guns?

    I made purchases two weeks ago at the show and I will do so again next week and each show after. His voting record and many, many comments are out there for review.

    More crap from the NRA to boost gun sales.

    No one is powerful enough to take away American's right to own guns now or in the near future.

    The issue is much broader than that.
