But I see your true colors

Well, someone finally got Barack — what was that middle name again? — Obama to actually comment on guns...I guess his minders were out to lunch, or maybe out scouring the local Pennsylvania bookstores for a copy of Das Kapital so the candidate can refresh his economic positions.. You're probably not going to be surprised at his gun positions, either. This from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review this week, through Alphecca:
Candidates' gun control positions may figure in Pa. voteWhat a moron, but what can you expect from Richie Rich from Chicago...no guns, but "friends" who'll buyt half your house!
Clinton and Obama favor some kind of ban on assault weapons, something McCain opposes.
"I ... think we should reinstate the assault weapons ban (that expired in 2004) in order to give our police officers a fighting chance against the criminals on the street with these military-style assault weapons," Clinton said Tuesday.
All three candidates oppose creating a national handgun registry.
Rather than create a national registry, "I do think we have to do a better job sharing information between local and federal officials," Obama said yesterday. He differs with McCain and Clinton about whether people should be allowed to carry concealed guns. Clinton and McCain oppose outlawing it.
"I am not in favor of concealed weapons," Obama said. "I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations."
