I’m a Second Amendment nut. Just like I’m a First Amendment and a Fourth Amendment nut. Meaning, I’m a Bill of Rights nut, a Constitution nut. And, while most in my immediate circle are going into a lather trying to convince me that Obama’s the lesser of two evils when it comes to foreign policy and the economy, there’s one place he most definitely ain’t the lesser of evils: the Second Amendment.
From Obama’s President-Elect website.
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.
The difference between Republicans and Democrats?
Which rights they choose to strip you of.
