    Now how many of these Toss Up states are pro gun?
    Colorado (9)
    Florida (29)
    Iowa (6)
    Michigan (16)
    Nevada (6)
    New Hampshire (4)
    North Carolina (15)
    Ohio (18)
    Pennsylvania (20)
    Virginia (13)
    Wisconsin (10)

    obama shot himself in the foot with North Carolina because of his support of gay marriage

    At the end of a long answer to the question, “What has your administration done or planned to do to limit the availability of assault weapons?” Obama said this:
    “My belief is that, (A), we have to enforce the laws we’ve already got, make sure that we’re keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, those who are mentally ill. We’ve done a much better job in terms of background checks, but we’ve got more to do when it comes to enforcement.
    “But I also share your belief that weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don’t belong on our streets. And so what I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced. But part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence. Because frankly, in my home town of Chicago, there’s an awful lot of violence and they’re not using AK-47s. They’re using cheap hand guns.”

    His last sentence says it all....Most of the violence in our country comes from our inner cities and the gang atmosphere. The weapons used are not assault weapons, generally speaking. An assault weapon ban would do nothing to alleviate this problem.

    I disagree with Obama on this.

    Gun ban is what obama wants. Most gun owners knew this was going to come. Play with fire and you will get burnt sooner or later. Time too tell this idiot good bye.

    Obama on guns is the least of our concerns.
    He's a parriah on the nation itself.

    You think it's just AK 47'S he's going after?

    There are all kinds of personal freedom/public safety trade-offs that conservatives have absolutely no problem being fascist assholes over except this one. On guns they seem to think that we should be ridiculously libertarian while locking people up for camping in the park or feeding the homeless or having the gall to protest things they happen to like or just smoking a damned joint. The 2nd amendment is apparently absolute and non-negotiable, the 1st is in serous trouble when they get the power.

    You're right the second amendment is non-negotiable and absolute
    However that is besides the point and irrelevant, how many of those swing states are pro gun?
