Obama Thinks You Shouldn't Be Allowed To Own A Gun has an old story that I think is worth revisiting. Barack Obama is by far the most anti-gun candidate in the recent history, maybe all of U.S. history.

Below is an excerpt from this article on

Obama has consistently supported gun control legislation that came up while he was in the Illinois state legislature and the U.S. Senate.

For example, when Obama ran for the Illinois state senate the political group, Independent Voters of Illinois (IVI), asked him if he supported a “ban [on] the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns” and he responded “yes.”

Realizing how damaging this could prove in the general election, his presidential campaign “flatly denied” Obama ever held this view, blaming it instead on a staffer from his state senate race.

But then IVI provided Politico the questionnaire with Obama’s own handwritten notes revising another answer. Members of IVI’s board of directors, some of whom have worked on Obama’s past campaigns, told Politico that “I always believed those to be his views, what he really believes in, and he’s tailoring it now to make himself more palatable as a nationwide candidate.”

Buy your guns now just in case. If our economy tanks you may need them. If Obama wins you may need them. Actually, if Obama loses you may need them (according to James Carville).
