Hope for Obama's Gun Bill

It may seem impossible, but Mr. Obama can enact new gun law AND satisfy the gun lobby with his proposed "assault-weapon" legislation.

If he bans criminal misuse of these firearms, he'll earn support from NRA-types and the half of America that owns guns, a great accomplishment.

If he instead bans firearms that millions of Americans own in homes, apartments and farms, he risks an uprising. However he spins it, people have the right to these tools now. If new law confiscates these rights, it will go down badly.

Assault is a type of behavior, not a type of hardware. Outlaw criminal behavior -- big win. Outlaw people's property -- big problem.

He says "these" firearms (Clinton included normal magazines like police use for protection), belong on "foreign battlefields." God help us if they're needed on domestic battlefields against a government confiscating rights. Mr. Obama -- I know these people. Disarm criminals, mobilize robust support, disarm the public, mobilize robust resistance. Please choose wisely.




all I have to say about taking my guns, and my conceal carry permit,is over my dead body! the average gun owner has the same attitude about this as I do and there will be hell to pay if these gun grabbing idoits get their me.

My problem... thanks to the scare created by obama, it is making it hard to even get the items I need as a Law Enforcement Officer. Ever since the election, tactical weapons and components are in such short supply, it took three months for my patrol rifle (ordered through and delivered to my agency) to come in. I am still waiting for the extra magazines for it. Thanks obama for hindering Law Enforcement rather than crime...
