I'll give the mainstream media this: They're consistent. They're consistently ignoring Barack Obama's statements that he "supports" the Second Amendment, and they're also consistently ignoring Senator Obama's repeated calls for the kind of gun control that would spell the end of the Second Amendment as we know it.

Back in 1999, Obama called for a laundry list of gun control, including a 500 percent increase in taxes on firearms and ammunition. He called for bans of affordable handguns. He called for mandated "smart gun" technology. He demanded that FFLs not be allowed to maintain their business within five miles of a school or a park. In short, he wanted to regulate the Second Amendment out of existence.

To my knowledge, not one reporter has asked Obama about the positions he took back then. Nor have they asked him about the position he's taking now, "supporting" the Second Amendment in speeches while refusing to sign on to the congressional amicus brief opposing the District of Columbia's gun ban. Fifty-five of his fellow senators signed on to that brief, but Obama still pretends the issue is about "local control," not constitutional rights.

When the mainstream media refuses to ask a presidential frontrunner about his position on an issue, you can't help but wonder why. When the issue is the Second Amendment, it can't be because the press doesn't like what Obama has to say. Maybe it's just that they don't want you to hear it.

Don't trust the liberal Democrats. They have failed gun owners
time after time after time since 1963.

[FONT=&quot]"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." George Washington[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence The Church, the plow, the prairie wagon and citizens firearms are indelibly related" George Washington[/FONT]


[FONT=&quot] … now really, how can this be misconstrued so badly? Do we need to send the politicians back to basic English comprehension? Are Liberal Democrats so smart that they've become this stupid?

I agree nathangdad... we are in agreement here. I have never voted Democrat and will not even consider a Liberal. There are a few exceptions within the Democrat ranks that are pro-gun... however, most are so fearful for their jobs they are anti-gun.

Of course, as a general rule the conservative Republicans haven't tripped over themselves running to help us with anything but lip service, either. We've gotten a lot more talk than action from them...:sad2:

Troy, if they did nothing to protect the 2nd amendment, that would be 1000% better than what the democrats do to dismantle it. :hitwithrock:
