    Don't believe Obama on 2nd. amendment.

    This from the National Rifle Association...




    The presidential primary season is finally over, and it is now time for gun owners to take a careful look at just where apparent nominee Barack Obama stands on issues related to the Second Amendment. During the primaries, Obama tried to hide behind vague statements of support for “sportsmen” or unfounded claims of general support for the right to keep and bear arms.
    But his real record, based on votes taken, political associations, and long standing positions, shows that Barack Obama is a serious threat to Second Amendment liberties. Don’t listen to his campaign rhetoric! Look instead to what he has said and done during his entire political career.


    FACT: Barack Obama voted against the confirmation of 2 of the 5 Justices that affirmed an individual right to keep and bear arms.

    FACT: Barack Obama supports local gun bans in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and other cities.4

    FACT: Barack Obama voted to uphold local gun bans and the criminal prosecution of people
    who use firearms in self-defense.5

    FACT: Barack Obama supports gun owner licensing and gun registration.6

    FACT: Barack Obama refused to sign a friend-of-the-court Brief in support of individual Second Amendment rights in the Heller case.

    FACT: Barack Obama opposes Right to Carry laws.7

    FACT: Barack Obama was a member of the Board of Directors of the Joyce Foundation, the leading source of funds for anti-gun organizations and “research.”8

    FACT: Barack Obama supported a proposal to ban gun stores within 5 miles of a school or park, which would eliminate almost every gun store in America.9

    FACT: Barack Obama voted not to notify gun owners when the state of Illinois did records searches on them.10

    FACT: Barack Obama voted against a measure to lower the Firearms Owners Identification card age minimum from 21 to 18, a measure designed to assist young people in the military.11

    FACT: Barack Obama favors a ban on standard capacity magazines.12

    FACT: Barack Obama supports mandatory micro-stamping.13

    FACT: Barack Obama supports mandatory waiting periods.2

    FACT: Barack Obama supports repeal of the Tiahrt Amendment, which prohibits information on gun traces collected by the BATFE from being used in reckless lawsuits against firearm dealers and manufacturers.14

    The NRA published a peice in the new American Rifleman about Obama too - baciscally the same thing you posted.

    It's scary what he wants to do, like ban the states from issuing Concealed Handgun permits, closing virtually all legitimate gun dealers, etc.

    I'm sure some people wouldn't believe what the NRA prints, but I've never known them to lie about stuff like that (why would they? If he was a gun rights supporter, they'd endorse the heck out of him). I've also seen a lot of hints about what he wants to do in some of his speaches.

    The only reason Obama said that he agrees with most of the Supreme Court's decision on the 2nd admendment is that the Supreme Court gave the nod to regulation, without spelling out the limits.

    Because of that, you can probably count on another lawsuit sponsered by the NRA to challenge "regulations" which are almost bans but not quite.

    Chuck, if you go see the web link, you can see that the little numbers at the end of each line item are the source notes for the claims.

    I took some time reading through each one, and it looks like the NRA-ILA did their homework.

    I have a bad feeling that OB-wan Bama doesn't like too many of the rights spelled out in the BOR. It'll be a fun ride if he gets elected.

    But, he is the answer to all of our ills. Just ask him.

    That came off of the IRA Legislative Action web site you can see the links there.

    The NRA always does their homework - I was just saying that a lot of people still won't believe them, because they think the NRA has some hidden agenda, such as letting criminals have guns - I've heard arguements to that effect from otherwise sane people, but in reality that is just the opposite of what the NRA stands for. Those people who think that are also blinded by the light from Obama's halo.
