So, as all the chatter on the gun sites has it, President Obama will be doing everything he can to repeal the Second Amendment. From his website (tellingly posted under Urban Policy and not, say, Civil Rights):
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.
So, with a big, hearty Fuck You to the Obamanation, I’m heading down to the Tanner Gun Show this weekend to pick up a little something. Perhaps a new Romanian AK-47 variant, though word has it those are getting pretty steep in price. In which case, I’ll probably snag myself a 1911. Specfically, either a Springfield GI.54 or Mil-Spec. Or, if I see one for a real nice price, I might take a chance on a Taurus PT 1911.
I suggest you do the same.
