Barack Obama on Gun Issues

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I am an avid outdoorsman and passionate about gun issues. I am a Life Member of the NRA and subscribe to several gun-related forums, such as G.O.A (Gun Owners of America) and PFOA (Pennsylvania Firearms Owners Association). I believe that the Second Amendment not only protects our right to keep and bear arms, but also secures for us the guaranteed freedoms laid out in the U.S. Constitution. The idea that our government may, in the future become more restrictive and tyrrannical is the very reason the second amendment was conceived...to give "we the people" the means to overthrow and replace an oppressive government.

A great friend of mine likes to put quotes on his emails. They are both interesting and insightful and always make me think...especially today. The quote for today is:

"Ideas are far more powerful than guns. We don't allow our enemies to have guns, why should we allow them to have ideas?"
-Joseph Stalin
What I immediately thought was this...if, by some oddball chance, Obama is our next president, how would he be judged on gun issues? The link below gives us but a small view of what Barack Obama really is all about.

Be prepared to lose both your guns and the ability to think for yourselves if Obama prevails in November.
