Barack Obama on Gun Control Democratic Jr Senator (IL)

Keep guns out of inner cities--but also problem of morality I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities, and that our leaders must say so in the face of the gun manfuacturer's lobby. But I also believe that when a gangbanger shoots indiscriminately into a crowd because he feels someone disrespected him, we have a problem of morality. Not only do ew need to punish thatman for his crime, but we need to acknowledge that there's a hole in his heart, one that government programs alone may not be able to repair.

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.

A bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse of their products by others.

Obama is a poster child for how ineffective stricter gun laws really are. You don't have to look much farther than Chicago with it's zero tolerance toward legal ownership of handguns as a tool of self defense. Surely these laws have proven so effective at controlling crime, that one need not fear walking through any part of the city, day or night, right?

I'll support tighter gun control on criminals and children... the first time I see an 8 year old rapist purchase a 357 magnum from a gun shop.

Obama, when he recently spoke in Idaho, articulated support for the 2nd Amendment, and said something to the effect that he's not trying to take guns away from people.

Here's his quote as reported in the LA Times:

"And then there are people who say, `Well, he doesn't believe in the Second Amendment,' even though I come from a state — we've got a lot of hunters in downstate Illinois. And I have no intention of taking away folks' guns."

Obama does support gun control and has a record of voting for it in the Illinois Senate. He backed limiting handgun purchases to one a month, but he made no attempts to ban them.

Obama stands by his support for controls while trying to reassure hunters that he has no interest in interfering with their access to firearms.

Obama has suffered Swift Boat attacks claiming that he's trying to take away people's guns and right of self-defense. Indeed, I think I've seen something like that in the the SLS Forum.

fjep: "But neither on of those candidates voted to take away a individuals right to protect themselves. Obama in the Illinois senate voted to take away the right to self defense in ones own home."

Nonsense. Cite me the specific legislation that Obama voted against. Show me that Obama said citizens have no right to self-defense in their homes?

Give me the source of your cite.

Let's see how two leading Republican candidates for the GOP nomination line-up on gun control.

Romney, of course, does a flip flop.

From Boston Globe, January 14, 2007

ORLANDO , Fla. -- Former governor Mitt Romney, who once described himself as a supporter of strong gun laws, is distancing himself from that rhetoric now as he attempts to court the gun owners who make up a significant force in Republican primary politics.

In his 1994 US Senate run, Romney backed two gun-control measures strongly opposed by the National Rifle Association and other gun-rights groups: the Brady Bill, which imposed a five-day waiting period on gun sales, and a ban on certain assault weapons.

And as the GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2002, Romney lauded the state's strong laws during a debate against Democrat Shannon O'Brien. "We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts; I support them," he said. "I won't chip away at them; I believe they protect us and provide for our safety."

From "On the Issues" website:

McCain favors outlawing cheaply made handguns called Saturday night specials, and favors mandating safety locks on certain guns. McCain rallied Senate Republicans behind a Democratic measure requiring background checks at gun shows. Source: Scott Lindlaw, Associated Press Aug 17, 1999 McCain said he was open to voting for an assault weapon ban, depending on the details. Source: Los Angeles Times, “McCain Calls for Hearings” Aug 17, 1999

McCain spoke generally of the need for some tighter gun controls on hardened criminals and children.

In 2004, Obama said he supports a national ban on concealed carry because the states that allow it are "threatening the safety of Illinois residents." Never mind the fact that concealed carry laws have improved the safety of citizens in the states that have enacted such laws

Barack Obama's Gun-Related Votes The U.S. Senate Debated: Obama Voted: Supporting concealed carry for citizens Anti-gun Banning many common semi-automatic firearms Anti-gun Disallowing self-defense in towns where guns are banned Anti-gun Imposing one handgun a month restrictions Anti-gun Requiring lock up your safety trigger locks Anti-gun Protecting gun dealers from frivolous lawsuits Anti-gun Squelching the free speech rights of gun owners Anti-gun Restricting the interstate sales of firearms Anti-gun Repealing the gun ban in Washington, DC Anti-gun
