Obama's Cindy Lauper Moment on Guns

But I see your true colors
shining through...
— Cindy Lauper
"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. vote

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."
What a moron, but what can you expect from Richie Rich from guns, but "friends" who'll buyt half your house!

In his answers to the 1998 Illinois State Legislative National Political Awareness Test, Obama said he favored a ban on “the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.” Obama’s strident stand would also ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, whatever their previously legal purpose.

He's proposing restricting gun purchases to one weapon a month and banning the sale of firearms at gun shows except for "antique" weapons. Obama is also proposing increasing the licensing fee to obtain a federal firearms license.

He's also seeking a ban on police agencies from reselling their used weapons even if those funds are used to buy more state-of-the-art weapons for their agencies. Obama wants only those over 21 who've passed a basic course to be able to buy or own a firearm.

He's proposing that all federally licensed gun dealers sell firearms in a storefront and not from their homes while banning their business from being within five miles of a school or a park.

Do these dimwits actually think we believe their crap anymore?
They're politicians ferchristsake!!

Hitlery would oppose breathing if the winds of polls told her upraised wet finger that's what people wanted to hear today.
BHusseinO would approve of executions of fathers over the age of 35 if it meant he could have the Big Desk.
McLame would have us think he's going to lead us back to our land of milk and honey - while the taxpayers get milked and the honey flows to another corporation that threw some cash his way. (They could afford it - they just moved the plant to Chihuahua.)

I'm so sick of holding my nose to vote!
Of course, as gun guys, Mclame is our only hope. The other two are pure poison. Geez, this is best this country can come up with?
