Obama is Unfit for the Office of POTUS

From Cryptic:

Obama Positions on Gun Control:

• Ban semi-automatics, and impose more restrictions on other types of firearms possession;
• Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons;
• Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms;
• Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.
• On the issue of prohibiting citizens from carrying concealed weapons, Obama said he believes national legislation should be passed to “prevent other states’ laws [allowing citizens to conceal their guns] from threatening the safety of Illinois residents.”
• “I believe we need to renew–not roll back — this common sense gun law,” [The Clinton “Assault Weapons” Ban]
• Proposes several gun-control laws, including restricting purchases of weapons and ammunition at gun shows, establishing a national database that would capture and record imprints left by bullets, and making gun locks mandatory
• Obama said concealed weapons should be allowed for retired police officers and some military personnel.
• “Ordinary citizens should not be allowed to own military assault weapons, such as AK-47s and Uzis.”

Big hat tip to Michael Bane for the details. Seems like Obama is a typical statist- okay for ex-cops to carry guns to defend themselves, but not civilians. Note to that he wants to keep law abiding citizens disarmed in the highest crime areas- the inner cities. Much more here.

This is a blatant disregard for our rights. Anyone who is this far gone from the Bill of Rights should be no where near the Presidents office, never mind being in it. . . . He does not was citizens, he wants serfs. . . . . Yes Lord Obama, we do as you say My Liege. . . .

He also voted against a 2004 measure allowing a self-defense exception for people charged with violating local weapons bans by using a gun in their home.

Obama did vote in favor of the 2006 Vitter Amendment to prohibit the confiscation of lawful firearms during an emergency or major disaster, which passed 84-16.

They only reason he voted for Vitter is that he was already thinking of the 08' elections and knew he had to hide his old image and anti thinking or it would come back to haunt him.

He is a danger to our rights, no questing about it. . . and don't get me started on his fixing my soul. . . I had enough religion with Bush II
