Attention to anyone who has joined the giant gun-buying spree for fear of a Democrat in the White House. I know you’re all afraid that President Barack Obama is going to take all your guns on Jan. 20, but guess what? NOT GONNA HAPPEN.
Seriously. If you’re trying to get away from that whole “gun nut” or “clinging to guns” stigma, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG. Nobody wants to take your guns.
It might suprise you to know that a number of folks who voted for Barack Obama are responsible gun owners. It might even surprise you to know that Barack Obama supports the second amendment!!!
Yes, yes, I know you guys like to quote that survey he responded to back in the mid-90s in which he said he would support a ban on handguns.
But the world today is much different than it was then, and as my opinions and your opinions have changed on a number of issues, so has his on guns.
Obama initially voiced support of Washington DC’s handgun ban. Following the Supreme Court decision that the ban was unconstitutional, he revised his position in support of the decision overturning the law, saying, “Today’s decision reinforces that if we act responsibly, we can both protect the constitutional right to bear arms and keep our communities and our children safe.” He also said, in response to the ruling, “I have always believed that the Second Amendment protects the right of individuals to bear arms… The Supreme Court has now endorsed that view.”
Futhermore, seriously. I don’t want to take your guns. If you want to go out and kill your own food, that’s awesome. With the economy as it is today, I’m more and more in favor of growing your own and killin’ your own to save money and live better. However, I don’t think it’s necessary for you to have a hand grenade, an assault rifle or a cannon to kill a deer or to protect your family from crime.
Just pipe down. I hope all of you guys will be happy on January 20, strapped down in your basements looking all Rambo-like because Obama will pry a gun from your cold, dead hands.
Here’s a preview of what life will be like under an Obama administration to those of you who are so freakin’ scared out of your wits.
