I could care less who became president. The week before election their policies started looking a lot alike. I mean it doesn't matter, whoever is in office has to fix the economy deal with the populations indecisiveness in Iraq consider what to do with Afghanistan and stay alive for the next 2 months. The only reason I didn't vote for Obama is that Biden looks like a ***** Either way Palin is running for Pres next election with McCain the Undead as her VP against Kerry, Edwards

Actually Obama is pro 2nd amendment (minus assault rifles and **** like that of course). so your guns are safe.

and I am ok paying the taxes (less with obama) but I'd pay more if it meant I'd get him as president.

If you like Obama, you're considered a socialist. This **** goes back and forth for days. And if America is fucked, you can GTFO and the intelligence of our voting population will become ever-so-slightly higher

I'd tell you to get fucked because you're a racist piece of ****, but it doesn't matter. There are enough Americans who are willing and able to put race behind them and vote for the guy who they think will lead this country best.

So **** you, we got ours. Obama's the next president, and you're still a lowlife *******.

+1, voted Obama in person today. Also voted no on CA props 1A, 2, 4, 8, and a coupe of others I think (basically all the bond measures). Voted yes on 5.

Where did you get the KoolAid at? Must be some GOOD ****...


Obama is Anti-2nd Amendment | United Liberty | Free Market - Individual Liberty - Limited Government
Quote:
While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family (Illinois Senate, S.B. 2165, vote 20, 3/25/04).
Barack Obama -- GOA 2008 Presidential Candidates and the Second Amendment
Quote:
It sounded like a report from the National Enquirer. Dick Cheney and Barack Obama... cousins?
Say it ain't so, Mrs. Cheney.
But in fact, the Vice-President's wife revealed this bombshell in her recent book, Blue Skies, No Fences. According to Lynne Cheney, the current veep and the Illinois Democrat Senator, who wants to be the next president, are distant cousins -- eighth cousins, to be exact.1
When hit with this revelation, the Obama campaign took the news in stride, saying that, "Every family has a black sheep."2
All kidding aside, it's too bad that Dick Cheney and Barack Obama didn't do more shooting and target practice together in their youth, because today, they couldn't be more polar opposites when it comes to the Second Amendment.
Whereas one would be hard-pressed to find an anti-gun vote on Cheney's House record -- as he served the state of Wyoming for many years -- Obama's gun record is just simply atrocious.
Oh sure, Obama told Iowa radio listeners last year that he is a "strong believer" in the rights of hunters and sportsmen, and that homeowners should have a firearm "to protect their home and their family." But then in the next breath, he says, "It's hard for me to find a rationale for having a 17-clip semiautomatic [sic]."3
Good thing the ban on magazines that Obama supports was not in effect during the Los Angeles riots of 1992. That's when Korean merchants successfully used their semi-autos -- with large magazines containing multiple rounds -- to keep looters away from their stores. Their businesses remained standing, even while many others (which were left unprotected) burned to the ground.
Obama supports the existing gun control laws on the books. Nowhere in his literature or in his campaign speeches does he stake out a position in favor of repealing any gun control measure that has passed into law.
Not surprisingly, Obama supports the gun ban in the nation's capital, saying the "DC handgun law is constitutional."4 And he is opposed to people using guns for self-defense, when those guns are owned in localities like Washington, DC and Chicago where firearms are banned.
Illinois resident Hale DeMar was prosecuted by the town of Wilmette for using a handgun in his home to defend his family in 2003. Because Wilmette had imposed a ban on the possession of handguns, several Illinois state legislators introduced SB 2165 to protect the right of self-defense for residents like DeMar.
True to form, Obama voted against the pro-gun legislation.5
It is very telling that Obama moved further to the left than most of the liberal legislators in his state. The self-defense bill protecting gun owners like DeMar passed the state senate 41-16 and was later enacted into law over the governor's veto (and over Obama's opposition).
The concealed carry of firearms is another important issue for gun owners, and yet Obama is not only opposed to citizens carrying guns, he supports using federal laws to override those states which currently allow the practice.
In 2004, Obama said he supports a national ban on concealed carry because the states that allow it are "threatening the safety of Illinois residents."6 Never mind the fact that concealed carry laws have improved the safety of citizens in the states that have enacted such laws.7
Obama has also taken a strong position in favor of the Clinton semi-auto ban which sunset in 2004. "I believe we need to renew -- not roll back -- this common sense gun law," Obama said.8
Well, there's nothing that's "common sense" about the Clinton ban. Not only did it outlaw almost 200 types of firearms, legislators like Senator Chuck Schumer of New York tried to amend the law (before it sunset) to include additional types of semi-autos -- even banning classic (wood-stock) long guns such as the Remington shotgun which Senator John Kerry received as a gift during his 2004 presidential bid.9
Bottom line: Senator Obama may not be as gun ban-crazed as the infamous Chuck Schumer. He may not lay awake at night dreaming of ways to disarm honest gun owners. But sure enough, Obama is a committed anti-gunner.
The chart below lays out the key votes and positions that Sen. Obama has taken over the past few years.

5Illinois State Senate, vote on SB 2165 (41-16), May 25, 2004.

8John Chase, "Keyes, Obama are far apart on guns; Views on assault weapons at odds," Chicago Tribune, September 15, 2004.
9Senators Chuck Schumer and John Kerry had both cosponsored S. 1431 in 2003, a bill that would have banned any semi-auto shotgun that also contained a pistol grip, which the bill defined as "a grip, a thumbhole stock, or any other characteristic that can function as a grip." According to that definition, just about any semi-automatic shotgun would be banned.
10See supra note 6.
11About the so-called "assault weapons" ban, Obama says, "I believe we need to renew -- not roll back -- this common sense gun law." See supra note 8.
12See supra note 5.
13As a state senator, "Obama regularly supported gun-control measures, including a ban on semiautomatic 'assault weapons' and a limit on handgun purchases to one a month." "Obama Record May be Gold Mine for Critics," Associated Press, January 17, 2007.
14On July 28, 2005, Senator Obama voted for a provision requiring gun dealers to include the sale of a lock-up-your-safety device with every handgun sold. The amendment, offered by Sen. Herb Kohl (D-WI), passed by a vote of 70-30. The provision amended the gun makers' protection act (S. 397).
15On July 29, 2005, Senator Obama voted against S. 397, a bill that was designed to put an end to the frivolous lawsuits that were threatening to put many gun dealers out of business. While an argument could be made that a pro-gun Senator might vote against this bill because it contained a lock-up-your-safety provision (see supra note 14), the fact that Obama voted in favor of that trigger lock amendment (but against the overall bill) indicates his real animus against helping gun dealers protect themselves from the anti-gun lawsuits that were aimed at driving them into bankruptcy.
16On July 13, 2006, Sen. Obama voted for Emergency Powers language that saw only 16 of the most ardent anti-gun senators vote against it. The amendment provides that no money can be used by federal agents to confiscate firearms during a declared state of emergency. The amendment was added to the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill (HR 5441).
17On January 18, 2007, Senator Obama voted against a pro-gun amendment to strike language in S. 1 that would infringe upon the free speech rights of groups like Gun Owners of America. The amendment, which passed, struck requirements that would have required GOA to monitor and report on its communications with its members, and could easily have led to government demands for GOA's membership list (a.k.a. registration).
18Obama has frequently made statements which indicate that he would restrict the interstate sale of firearms. For example, he told the NAACP that, "We've got to make sure that unscrupulous gun dealers aren't loading up vans and dumping guns in our communities, because we know they're not made in our communities. There aren't any gun manufacturers here, right here in the middle of Detroit." Senator Barack Obama, at the NAACP Presidential Primary Forum, July 12, 2007.
19See supra note 4.
In RED indicated the only thing I've found where he votes to support 2nd Amendment Rights. If you can find more I'll gladly reconsider my opinion about his Anti-Gun voting.

Assault Rifles aren't used in "violet" crimes NEARLY half as often as Bill Clinton would like you to believe. The "Federal Assault Weapons Ban" was enacted on Sep 13th 1994.

Federal Assault Weapons Ban - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would like to quote an important part of the AWB:

Quote:
The act addressed only semi-automatic firearms, that is, firearms that fire one shot each time the trigger is pulled. Neither the AWB nor its expiration changed the legal status of fully automatic firearms, which fire more than one round with a single trigger-pull
Other portions of what was regulated was high capacity magazines:

Quote:
Depending on the locality, the cutoff between a "normal" capacity and "high" capacity magazine was 3, 7, 10, 15, or 20 rounds. The now defunct federal ban set the limit at 10 rounds.
Now I'm sure you're asking yourself why am I mentioning this? Well, quite simply, drugs are illegal.. Yet strange enough, they're easier to get your hands on than an Assault Rifle.. Odd.

Now I'd like to make reference to something that happened in North Hollywood in 1997;

North Hollywood shootout - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quote:
The North Hollywood shootout was an armed confrontation between two heavily-armed and armored bank robbers, Larry Eugene Phillips, Jr. and Emil Matasareanu, and patrol and SWAT officers of the Los Angeles Police Department in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California on February 28, 1997. It happened when responding patrol officers engaged Phillips and Matasareanu leaving a bank which the two men had just robbed. Ten officers and seven civilians sustained injuries before both robbers were killed.[2] Phillips and Matasareanu had robbed several banks prior to their attempt in North Hollywood and were notorious for their heavy armament, which included automatic rifles.
Now, I've done a lot of searching over the years for reported violent crimes with ANY sort of Assault Rifle... This is one of the ONLY instanced I could find, and nearly every weapon Phillips and Matasareanu were armed with Bill Clinton banned, along with the Firearms Control Act of 1934 (National Firearms Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)... Interesting..

I read a study a few years ago on the most used 'weapons' in violet crimes, and it sure the **** wasn't a Semi-Automatic AR15 or AK47. Unfortunately I can't locate that article right now.

Gun Control takes firearms from rightful legal owners and places them in the hands of violet criminals. I don't care what Obama SAYS about his 2nd Amendment views, I'll believe what he VOTES now and VOTED in the past which say different. I could stand here and tell you I'm the next Prince of Spain until I'm blue in the face, but that doesn't make it true.. Does it?

You're right about one thing though, MY guns ARE safe. Locked in my safe and I'll shoot anyone dead who tries to take them from me.

YOu people have a ******* religious problem with gays marying each other. Guess what; The fuckng constitution says that gays can marry each other.

if you want to deny that it is a religious thing, TELL ME WHERE THE CONSTITUTION STATES THAT YOU CAN DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE FOR TRYING TO LIVE THEIR LIVES, AND BE HAPPY LIKE THE REST OF US.

for the record, I like to **** chicks, but I dont see why 3 good friends of mine should have to have their marriage(WHICH IS NOT AFFECTING YOUR LIFE IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER)declared invalid.

btw: **** civil unions too. We may as well just tell all the **** that they have to sit on the back of the bus

Wow guys this is going to far...

#1-I voted for Obama

#2-the picture IS funny, sorry but it is..... we've all seen much worse than this in the forums, so let it go.

#3-It's come up before, and I said the same thing. Not getting along with someone because of their different political/religious views, is just ridiculous... People have different views on things based on their experiences/education/upbringing, get over it. Otherwise if you ask enough people about enough topics, you'll be **** outta friends
