It’s amazing to me. I’ve been reading more of the comments on mainstream news articles about Obama and guns. People say things like “Obama has clearly stated he supports the Second Amendment”.
Well, yes, he has said that. But he also says on his website:
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.
He clearly states he supports a gun ban. That is his way of supporting the Second Amendment?
One commenter wrote:
Also, Obama doesn’t want to take your gun away. He has stated that he does not see why citizens need semi and fully automatic weapons. That’s it.
My response was:
“That’s it.”?? That would eliminate about half the the firearms currently being sold and nearly all of my guns. Let’s translate that into 13th Amendment infringement language instead of Second Amendment infringement language: “Our candidate just wants to enslave Jews, Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, Muslims, Catholics, and homosexuals. That’s it.”
It just doesn’t get any more clearly stated than that yet they can’t seem to get why we are upset with Obama’s position on guns.
Here is a video with Chris Cox of the NRA on Fox News and Fox only quotes the part of Obama’s website where he says he supports the Second Amendment. Not the part I quoted above where he says he wants to ban guns.
What media bias?
