Most of Obama's anti-gun voting record, if you'll notice, is from his tenure as a state legislator. His opinions on the issue seem to have changed a
bit once he went from the state legislature to the US Senate - suddenly he found himself representing and talking to a bunch of Illinois gun
When in the US Senate he voted alongside Republicans to make gun seizures after emergencies, as we saw in New Orleans after Katrina, illegal. If he
was such a die-hard anti gunner as the NRA (of which I am a member) likes to pretend, he would have voted the other way.
As far as "gunbanobama.com" goes - I'm sure that's a very unbiased source LOL.
I'm not a huge fan of Obama's gun control positions, but at least he supports the Second Amendment as an individual right - even though much
of his party has endorsed the idea that it confers a "collective" right to participate in a militia.
If the Second Amendment was the only issue at stake in this election, I might not be voting for Obama, even though I think the NRA propaganda
is way overblown.
But as I see it, I won't be voting against the guy who is wrong on one issue, while his opponent is wrong on just about everything
That's why this gun owner will be voting for Obama this year.
