BBC News - Newtown shootings: Obama 'backs assault weapons ban' http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...a-carney-newtown-assault-weapons-ban/1777793/ http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324461604578188680585236550.html Rather then condemning the naive people here who thought Obama was pro-gun and voted for him and defended him and swore that he would never dare want to take our guns and our God given right to keep and bear arms.. No, that could never happen. Yeah right! I am not shocked at all about this and saw it happening.. I just didn't think it would happen so fast. I knew Bammy Hussein was smart and was waiting for the next mass shooting to push forward the anti-gun legislation Thank you for everyone who did their best to try to keep Obama Hussein from having a 2nd term in the White House. Now, him and his thugs in DC will do everything in power to strip us of not only our right to bear semi automatic weapons, but eventually to remove our rights to own any type of firearm, deemed not appropriate for "sport". All I can say is I am disgusted, disgusted so many who cherished their freedom thought it was not worth uniting to keep him out of the White House, but rather we spent so much time fighting our selves. I don't think Romney would have sided with the Democrats on this issue and would have backed off from any AWB. However, Obama is all too happy to embrace it. I highly doubt party pressure is what has enticed, one of the most anti-gun politicians in our nation's history for pursuing an Assault Weapons Ban. It's time to stand up for our freedoms.. I was going to buy another AR-15, as I felt it was a good time to stock up, but it appears the gun buying frenzy is the largest on record. Now the greedy gun dealers who are responsible for a lot of the buying frenzy and price gouging are reselling many of these ARs for prices well above retail. I refuse to pay inflated gun prices, so now I am going to have to search hard for a sane deal or just forget about it. Supposedly 16,000,000 or more ATF background checks performed since the time of the shooting. Some have reported this is a record number of gun purchases made in such a short period of time. I wish I had better words to say.. Those who voted for Obama, well I don't think there is anything I can say to you that you already don't know.. I don't want to get political or live in the past.. I rather focus on the present. The 2nd Amendment is not for sale.. It's not adjustable or not applicable in the 21st century. Rewriting the Constitution will not only result in the deaths of 30 more school children, but 1000s more of innocent children. Our government makes a mockery and shame of those innocents who were murdered to push their vile and draconian agendas.
