Watch the other hand... Obama and new gun laws
Libs, atheists, anti gun, pee shooters, and pond hoppers welcomed...
Obama claimed in his op-ed: “My administration has not curtailed the rights of gun owners, it has expanded them, including allowing people to carry their guns in national parks and wildlife refuges.” But he conveniently forgot to mention that he never initiated or supported this legislation. Instead, it was forced upon Obama by a large majority of Congress passing an amendment to a bill that he wanted passed, the “Cardholders’ Bill of Rights Act of 2009.” Just because Obama wasn’t willing to veto a bill he wanted hardly shows support for the right to self-defense.
I’m certain of one thing… such a back door plan to “change” guarantees an absolutely stunning defeat in 2012 leaving very few liberals in office, for generations.
What is coming is another banding of states… much like we have already seen… which by 2012 election is settled by the 3rd branch. IMHO, is why CCW laws are moving swiftly, and being passed by states… because the constitutional challenge is coming.
Herein is the utopia view... and reality...
Everyone wants a perfect, almost magical solution that will stop criminals from getting their hands on guns. But, unfortunately, background checks do not stop bad guys from getting their hands on guns. Not a single academic study by economists or criminologists has found that the Brady Act or any state background checks has reduced violent crime.
