Ironmaiden, you say that Obama doesn't want to ban guns, but you admit that he wants to ban semi-autos. Isn't that a gun ban?
Thats a ban on a specific type of gun, not all guns. What is the big suprise with that anyways? Obama is a liberal, liberals never expand gun rights ever. Anyways gun regulations have been getting tighter everywhere within the past 30 years. Texas, Oklahoma, NC, SC, Utah, Kansas, Georgia, which are very conservative areas run by conservatives, bills created by conservatives. Why, safety.
Also, I never said that that Obama would ban ALL guns. What concerns me is that without constant vigilance the right to bear arms will be slowly erroded over time and eventually regulated out of existance.
Again which will take adding another AMENDMENT which is not a very easy task and the president has NO say in it, he can express his opinion but he can not veto a proposed amendment. Interestingly enough I can't even find a proposed amendment to ban all guns. In July of 2008 they (supreme court) just uplifted the ban of weapons in DC for being unconstitutional and also dont require the dismantling of weapons or safety locks so the system does work.
You can't solely blame liberals if some how they accually pass another amendment banning all guns, restrictions on guns have also been sought by conservatives as well. Your mindset seems to be set in another dimension. What are you scared of, liberals holding power? Do think that they will take away all ur rights and we will become a fascist country? And all this is based on a parties ideology and not on their actions?
It also concerns me that four of the nine Supreme Court justices don't even agree that there is an individual right to keep and bear arms. ..... And guess who appoints suppreme court justices.
There is 4 liberal 4 conservative and 1 moderate on the supreme court, you have no argument with that one.
