Sapp, show me one thing your boy obama has ever done that could be interpreted as pro 2nd amendment. He has voted against the gun industry, he is against concealed carry, against semi auto weapons, against so called assault weapons. Other than an after the fact statement, he has NO history of being pro gun owner. Please give me ONE instance of his support of gun rights. Obama is the most dangerous man to seek the presidency since Long. Redistribution of wealth,mandating companies to provide health insurance, increasing taxes, cuts in defense systems. I hope some how the American people will wake up before he gets to the White House.

I wonder if that's his idea of a 527 ad?

I have to agree with Sappy for the first time ever!

He has said the same rhetoric 527 times even when he is proven wrong!

Debjack:

What you see is anti-gun, I see as pro-gun control. Scalia is also pro-control. One can be pro-gun control without being anti-gun. Obama is pro- 2nd Amendment. No matter how hard you try or what you cite, you can't make Obama into someone opposed to the 2nd Amendment. He's neve said a word about overturning the 2nd amendment, and he has said much in support of the 2nd Amendment. Yet, you, in your crazed-wacko way, keep trying to insist Obama is anti 2nd Amendment.

It will be curious to see what Obama does about gun control and the 2nd amendment after he's elected. I'm sure he will continue to express support for the 2nd Amendment, and Dick Cheney will still be able to buy a gun that could be used in a way that shoots someone in the face.

Would you want to go on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney?

Sapp, How am I "distorting" his view? I have only posted what he has said, voted on, and proposed. I have posted directly from ontheissues and factcheck. So where have I distorted anything?

In your opinion is banning all semi-automatic weaopns (shorguns, rifles and handguns) reasonable restriction?

In your opinion is banning CCW permits reasonable? Nationwide.

In your opinion is telling someone that they cannot defend themselves and their family reasonable?

In your opinion is it reasonable to ban all handguns?

Sweetbutt & AZQT:

We can debate what is a reasonable form of gun control, and I see Obama in favor of reasonable forms of gun control.

We can also debate what is a wacko opposition to gun control, and I see both of you committed to wacko anti-gun control positions.

You both continually distort, in wacko ways, Obama's positions on the 2nd Amendment.

...The outcry of the Illinois public was heard all the way to the state capitol. As a result, the Illinois House and Senate passed legislation in May 2004 to protect citizens who use handguns in self-defense in their homes or businesses despite local handgun bans. The House accepted the DeMar self-defense bill by a vote of 86-25 and the Senate moved the legislation on a 38-20 vote. And here lies the seminal moment for State Senator Barack Obama. When Obama turned thumbs down on the bill, he voted against the most basic element of the Second Amendment—the right of defense of self and family—the reason that millions of Americans own firearms. When the governor vetoed the bill, Obama once again voted against a citizen’s right to self-defense. Despite his vote, the veto override passed the Senate and the House by overwhelming majorities, thereby enacting this bill into law. Now, fast forward to today’s slippery oratory of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama just three years from being an unknown state senator—now morphed by the media into a spellbinding U.S. Senator seeking to be President of the United States. Using words like “protecting sportsmen,” Obama is now saying that he believes in the Second Amendment ... but with almost universal exceptions, all of which he lists under the heading of “common sense gun safety laws.” “Common sense gun safety” and the Second Amendment? Like endorsing the D.C. gun ban, which outlaws armed self-defense in the home—now being challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court. Obama, who as President would be in the position to nominate justices to that high court, has declared that the D.C. ban doesn’t violate the Second Amendment. “Common sense gun safety” and the Second Amendment? In a “1998 National Political Awareness Test,” he pledged to support a “Ban [on] the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons”—meaning most handguns and many rifles and shotguns that you and I own. “Common sense gun safety” and the Second Amendment? Like demanding that the federal government preempt the 40 hard-won state laws creating Right-to-Carry. Here’s how the Chicago Tribune put it: “Obama said he opposed allowing ordinary citizens to carry concealed weapons and that a federal law banning concealed carried weapons except for law enforcement is needed.” “Common sense gun safety” and the Second Amendment? Like the draconian proposals funded to the tune of $18,000,000 by the rabidly anti-gun Joyce Foundation while Obama was an activist member of its board of directors. Obama’s alleged support of the Second Amendment is utterly cynical and false. Barack Obama is not for the right to keep and bear arms; he’s out to destroy it.

FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, "No, my writing wasn't on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns." Actually, Obama's writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:

35. Do you support state legislation to: a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes. b. ban assault weapons? Yes. c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.

Obama's campaign said, "Sen. Obama didn't fill out these state Senate questionnaires--a staffer did--and there are several answers that didn't reflect his views then or now. He may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire, but some answers didn't reflect his views."

Concealed carry OK for retired police officers Obama voted for a bill in the Illinois senate that allowed retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons. If there was any issue on which Obama rarely deviated, it was gun control. He was the most strident candidate when it came to enforcin and expanding gun control laws. So this vote jumped out as inconsistent. When I queried him about the vote, he said, "I didn't find that [vote] surprising. I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry. This was a narrow exception in an exceptional circumstance where a retired police officer might find himself vulnerable as a consequence of the work he has previously done--and had been trained extensively in the proper use of firearms."

It wasn't until a few weeks later that another theory came forward about the uncharacteristic vote. Obama was battling with his GOP opponent to win the endorsement of the Fraternal Order of Police.

Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions Principles that Obama supports on gun issues: Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons. Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms. Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.
