Well, I just finished watching the 2nd Presidential Debate and although I do not hear the lamestream media discussing it -Obama made a very honest and foretelling statement. For me – it was the most surprising admission of the night.
President Obama said the following:
“…….weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don’t belong on our streets. And so what I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced, but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence, because frankly, in my hometown of Chicago, there’s an awful lot of violence, and they’re not using AK-47s, they’re using cheap handguns.”
Now – I know many of you have had long time beliefs that if Obama is reelected that gun control will be a wide open topic and I share that belief. Performing my own research several months ago after several readers took me to task stating that Obama would institute additional gun control measures upon reelection, I found that indeed, I could not find any information which pointed to a direct policy or action which showed Obama’s anti-gun beliefs. Maybe I needed to look harder.
So, President Obama has made it clear that he would like another Assault Weapons ban instituted. To what extent this new ban would diminish the available firearm supply in this country is not known. The potential is unnerving and flat out scares me. COuld ammunition come under control? All semi-automatic rifles? Any pistol capable of accepting a high capacity magazine? Who knows?
Notice that he mention that the violence in Chicago is NOT a result of assault weapons – that we must “at other sources of the violence”. Other than what? Other than assault weapons? Cheap pistols? Sounds like nothing is off the table to me.
The statement highlighted above should clear up any confusion regarding Obama’s intent. If he is reelected he has every intention to disarm law-abiding citizens in some manner.
You should be concerned. I have little doubt that gun sales – after this clear anti-gun admission – will skyrocket to new record levels.
Take care all –
