Will Obama Take Your Guns Away?

| 30 Comments

My going assumption was that Obama would wind up guiding most facets of federal government policy slightly -- not severely -- to the left, meaning more taxes, more spending, more restrictions on employment, guns, and incomes. But his campaign's ceaseless advertising about his vision of change has made me look up his plan.

So how seriously does Obama take your second amendment rights? Well, Obama's website discusses guns under Urban Policy, not Civil Rights.

Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

In general, I prefer well-thought-out constraints to civil rights, not just what politicians believe to be "commonsense" restrictions. So Obama MAY take your guns away if you or they run afoul of to-be-determined "commonsense measures".

But does it sound to you like Obama and Biden are perfectly OK with keeping already-manufactured assault weapons on the street? It appears to me that Obama MAY take your guns away, if he pushes to ban not just the sale of assault weapons to civilians, but also their possession by civilians.

And I leave it to you whether he'll take your guns away if they cannot be made "childproof"... Who knows?

HE BETTER NOT STEAL ME OR MY DADDY'S GUNS!!!

He can TRY... :-)

He will not take my dad's guns away even when i go in the army and tell me to take my dad's guns because obama want's to be like "Hitler" and i will stop it!!!!!!

XxRowensxX oh dear God you are so ignorant its not even funny anymore. I'll tell you something that people told me after Bush was reelected 4 years ago, If you don't like it get the fuck out you ignorant pig.

I have all the guns I want. 4 semi auto hi cap handguns in .40 cal, .45 cal, .9mm, and 10mm. a .38 special revolver. I have a DPMS Panther .308 assault rifle with all the goodies. A mossberg 12 gauge with both barrels. And a bolt action 30.06 scoped.

All i can say is they can try. I just got my favorite gun tuesday night my ar-15 with red dot scope and hopefully barrett m107 .50 cal and ak-47 and my license for full auto weapons and go in my back yard and have fun. why would someone want to take away something people love for a hobby thats stupid and the fact that osama obama what a terrorist sounding name anyway want to raise ammunition price 300%, um dumb fuck that is going to cause robery of gun stores like crazy. I dont think that this guy needs to be president!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he wont take my dads

First of all, what dumb fucks like the general population of gun owners do not grasp is that he can try to take guns away, but there is another branch of government in this country its called the judicial branch. One of the courts in this branch happans to be the suprume court, and as long as we have the suprume court both state and federal, the likly hood of a gun ban even being passed wihout being constitutional is slim and none. Obama simpaly does not have the power to take away guns. We must also remember that when clinton was in office, no one lost their guns.

He has more important things to worry about before gun laws. Besides, if anyone asks, I must have misplaced my guns somewhere.........:)

I like obama as being president, but my stepfather told me that obama was going to be taking away firearms... My mom told me that he wasn't taking away firearms... They both had proof to back up their statements so now I don't know which to believe.. I am against Obama taking away our firearms, I'm a hunter and so is most of my family... Its a tradition that has been going on for many years... Him taking them away would only upset America.

Shit he wont dare take my guns... I can tell you one thing they will have to kill me to take my rifles away. Im not letting anyone do that. I dont care who they are. Fuck them all!

Are you serious politico? Do you seriously believe the government isn't behind what Obama or any President does. The President is just a figure put there to look like the leader of the country when in reality the government is running everything in the background. I am not for or against Obama I am willing to wait it out and see what he does with what he has been given. Bush messed it up because he just wasn't a smart guy but all of his decisions weren't only his decisions, the government itself including all the branches backed his decisions. If Obama is going to take guns away, if and when it happens and he announces it I guarantee you that announcement will be made because he has the backing of the government "judicial branch" included. If they do decide to do this, it would only be the beginning and people are not going to go down without a fight. We have the right to bear arms. Be realistic anything is possible, your being close minded by critisizing people for being aware of what can or cannot happen.

Ask anybody who is up for their FFL renewal. They will tell you that they are getting the run around from ATF agents and not getting their license renewal approved. The are not given a reason other than it was "denied". These are dealers who have passed all ATF inspections in the past and have a clear record.
Also, go online to the ATF and order a form 7 (application for FFL). It was removed from their website, within a week of Obama taking office, and changed over so you have to call them to request it. It use to take less than 10 days to receive the application, now people are waiting 3 months just to get the paperwork. Even if you call the ATF and speak to someone, you get the run around.
Don't fool yourself, Obama will slowly choke the legitimate gun dealers out of your neighborhood. He will not be so blatant to say "You cannot own this or that", he will just make it impossible for you to buy ammo or a gun. This will eventually cause firearm and ammunition manufacturers to close their doors (losing yet more jobs).
Wake Up America. The government has the national guard and secret service to protect their family and their position. If Obama's statement was true that certain firearms belong on "foreign battlefields" ask yourself, what kind of weapons does his security force have to protect him? Why do they have them on homeland soil? Is America outside Washington now considered a "Foreign battlefield"? Look in the rear of the black SUV that is always in front of Obamas limousine...it has a 50 caliber machine gun and dont think that the person manning it would hesitate to kill you if you made the wrong move. Do you have that right to protect your family? No! If you shoot someone in your house, you are the criminal.

The government is taxing without representation. They represent their party and interests, not you.
Anyone care for a cup of tea? March on April 15th to show you wont take it anymore.

he can try but he will have a hard time in the redneck town i live in

I think you all just need to chill. Do you all have amnesia or something? Obama respects California's right to legalize pot by telling the federal agencies to back off. He will do the same for Montana in terms of gun control. Don't assume Obama is extreme about gun control. He has merely recommended that CITIES enforce somewhat stricter gun laws. Quit assuming that all liberals want to take your guns away!

Hey Billy Jack I don't assume Liberals want my guns I know they do, and if they keep fucking around with me they're going to get them.

It'll be a cold day in hell before Obama gets his hands on my guns

It'll be a cold day in hell before Obama gets his hands on my guns

The NRA and the one dimensional morons who populate it will NEVER quit believing that SOMEONE in power is going to take their guns away. What a bunch of loons.

he wont take away our guns. don't be stupid THEY will slowly tax their accessories, parts and munitions till they're unaffordable(like cigarettes are close to now)the tax will be for something noble like a childminding program or something. that way its acceptable. then like the cigarette tax the non smokers (and non shooters) wont care. it will just be a step toward the ban of the sale of certain calibers. then all guns. they wont take the guns away. they wont because they tried that withe prohibition. they've learned now they'll slowly choke the gun business without taking any rights. there wont be a fight or a riot. they wont announce NO GUNS they'll still be legal as paper weights and that's all they'll be.in the end the peaple will look at people who continue to shoot and pour money into the hobey like they look at smokers now. it wont be a ban it will be a slow change of perception of guns to the piont where they are cast into the shadow of bad morals. the only way to win is to be educated and know wat going on. dont just sit around and say "they wont take my guns" because they wont.read, learn, be aware. they're counting on gun owners being to stupid to realize wats happening.dont let that happen. fight, but with your mind and your voice.

Nope, he's gonna take all of your guns away. He knows to look 'neath the trailer at Uncle Remus'. And then he's gonna give 'em all to Gitmo terrorists. And then he's gonna poop on the flag and a picture of Clint Eastwood. Apply to the University of Alabama so you can learn why this is not true.

let the fuckers try please ill blow thier fucking heads off

Funny... all you people who posted this a year ago....

still have your guns...

Must be exhausting trying to keep the tension up for years....

He hasn't taken your guns...

Still got your guns...

What next??

Obama is a big dumb ass idk how he got elected.I can't afford my guns now cause of that dumb nigger

it will never happen. who supplies the military with guns and ammo? if they can't stay in business (by selling us said guns and ammo) then who will supply the military? it's all about the money!!!

Give them your guns. Bullets first.

In all seriousness, it won't happen, Americans would not stand for it. There are over 80 million gun owners in this country. There is no way they would all just sit back and let it happen.

I think, perhaps, if you added up all the IQ's belonging to these bloggers, you would have a problem reaching 100. These are the Americans who couldn't find their butts with both hands.
Dangerous people.

Just a stupid question: What IS the solution to keep guns out of the hands of gangs(terrorists) and criminals, yet not infringe on the 2nd amendment? No seriously a SOLUTION!

If you're ok with gangs, terrorists and criminals having 50-cal or AK-47's riffles shooting your children while they sleep, then your post doesn't matter.

Obama, like all Liberal Fascists, is a liar. He blatantly diregarded the Constitution with the so called "healthcare reform" along with his Nazi allies such as Feinstein and Pelosi. He refuses to defend US borders and is even switching sides with the war on the jihadists. it is time to leave the Union. Let the liberals gather in California and let the rest of us REAL Americans defend outselves and keep our rights
