Barack Obama is now running ads telling us that he supports gun rights:
He bases this claim in the fact that he voted for SA4615 the bill which has the purpose:
To prohibit the confiscation of a firearm during an emergency or major disaster if the possession of such firearm is not prohibited under Federal or State law.
Good. But not good enough. This ignores all his other votes and support for the complete handgun ban in Washington D.C., and support for a ban on “assault weapons”. Hunting, which is what Obama and Biden focus on, has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. Unless you include hunting government employees in the definition of hunting. Hunting is not a protected right except under some state constitutions. Yet that is what Obama and company seem to think is the entire basis of the Second Amendment.
