The following is a quote from Senator Obama's website:
PROTECTING GUN RIGHTS
Respect the Second Amendment: Millions of hunters own and use guns each year. Millions more participate
in a variety of shooting sports such as sporting clays, skeet, target and trap shooting that may not necessarily
involve hunting. As a former constitutional law professor, Barack Obama believes the Second Amendment
creates an individual right, and he greatly respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms. He will
protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport, and use guns for the
purposes of hunting and target shooting. He also believes that the right is subject to reasonable and
Why does he want to eliminate concealed carry permits for law abiding, background checked citizens?
If Obama thinks the 2nd Amendment is subject to regulation how does he feel about the rest of the Bill of Rights. How does he feel about civil rights? Is "all men are created equal" subject to commonsense regulation?
Scary stuff, folks!
