Barrack Obama claims to support our Second Amendment rights. Do you believe him?

"I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry"
-Chicago Tribune, April 27, 2004
"...just because you have an individual right does not mean the the state or local government can't constrain the exercise of that right..."
-2008 Philadelphia primary debate
(If this quote itself does not make you change your mind about Obama, you truly don't know how to vote).

No surprise to find his attitudes reflected in the District Court upholding of the right of states and municipalities to take away Constitutional rights.

What do you think would happen if states and municipalities tried to take away First Amendment rights?

I guess it would depend on whether the power brokers approved of the speech being controlled, huh?

This is why I didn't vote for Obama--his attitudes about CC tell me that he supports the idea that elders, queerfolk, women, people of color, poor people, indigenous people, short/small people, and disabled people should lie down and take their role as victims if someone decides they are. As a friend once said to me, "Fighting back isn't what liberals do, we REASON with our attackers!"

Good gravy.
