I just read through various interviews of Obama on the gun issues and what is posted on the Internet site. He is very evasive and never gives actual
details on this issue. In other words he is another Politician dodging direct questions. No surprise there.
I grew up in a community were we all owned guns, hunted and enjoyed target shooting for sport. I often went to High School with a rifle on the rack in
the cab of my truck and so did many others. Nobody thought anything of it.
The Game we shot was part of our family income. For a few pennies worth of ammo you could get a couple of hundred pounds of meat. High quality healthy
eating meat at that. There is nothing more Open Range than wild game and birds. The food we gathered on our own was important to us.
My first experience with people who are afraid of inanimate objects was when I started College in the Los Angeles area. I was out on a date, came home
to the girls apartment and her Baby Sitter was sitting there with a group of Police Officers.
While we were out, this Baby Sitter had rifled through all of her belongings and actually picked the lock on a box in the closet that contained a
handgun. Perfectly legal but she was so terrified of just that gun being in the apartment she called the police screaming and they waited out of
concern for the child.
Of course no laws were broken, so the Police did not care. They did however refuse to arrest the Baby Sitter for breaking the lock on the box and said
since she was there with permission it was implied consent for her to rifle through whatever she wanted.
Since that time I've noted that most anti-gun nuts are control freaks. It is not truly the guns they are after it is the control of others they want.
They know that the gun advocates are right about the criminals, not the guns being the problem. They don't care as it is a simple control issue. The
farther Left you go the higher level of control freaks they are. Same goes for the Far Right but on other issues. This just happens to be a Far Left
Obama is Far Left, so even though he evades all the questions, you could safely surmise he would like to take all guns away from citizens. If he gets
the chance, he will do it, or try too. My guess is after he replaces a couple of Supreme Court Justices and gets control of the final remaining branch
of government, he will then do whatever he wants and we can kiss gun ownership goodbye. Giving one Party that much control will blow up in our faces
I'm fairly sure. How can it not. Look at the current Leaders, Obama, Pelosi and Reid. It just does not get any farther Left than that. Say goodbye to
the America that once was and hello to the new foreign country that is soon to be our home.
I know now how my Father felt when we sat up together and watched the first Moon Landing and he saw the world he was born into herding Cattle on
horseback dissolve before his eyes. Farmers who no longer know how to grow seed crops. People who no longer know how to hunt of fish for their own
food. Robots totally dependent on others for everything in their lives.
