Change I Can’t Believe

on November 6th, 2008 | Filed under Asides, Optoblog

So just over half the country elected Obama. I seem to recall him saying:

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.
So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said

Well, guess what, he now has the votes in both the house and senate. So, what is on his agenda?
Taking away our guns. This just in from the “Office of the President-Elect” at Change.gov:

Address Gun Violence in Cities: …Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn’t have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

First of all, the Second Amendment issue is not just an urban issue. Also, why would a black rifle or AK-47 be on the agenda? How many crimes are committed each day with an AK? Even if it were 100%, when you outlaw the AK, the criminals won’t care because they get their guns illegally anyway! Also, our beloved “assault weapons” are the ones we need to protect us against government tyranny. AKs aren’t meant for deer hunting. They are meant to kill the bad guys. Us law abiding folks only use them in a self/family defense situation. Why would the government want to take that away? What does Obama’s government have in store for us that they want our defensive rifles taken away ahead of time?

Look, I’m just an optometrist, but I know there’s a reason why the Second Amendment was placed directly next to the First Amendment.

Also, he speaks with two tongues. You can’t “respect the Second Amendment” and in the same breath ban private sale of firearms and ban entire classes of firearms commonly used for self/family defense. He’s a big liar. Thank you, America, for being so in love with Obama that you failed to identify exactly what change you were voting for.

Hey, Obama. Arming law-abiding citizens keeps America safe. Disarming law-abiding citizens makes America unsafe and ripe for tyranny and oppression.

    according to the news, Walmart told many of their employees not to vote for Obama. Question is… is this your opinion, or did walmart put you up to this?
    Can we expect an anti-union rant next? stand by..Bentonville will be in touch.

  2. “mojo,” I don’t work for Wal-Mart. I rent a very nice location from them.
    As for your claim that corporate WM told employees who to vote for, I call BC (that’s a little Utah lingo for bull crap). I eat my lunch in their breakroom, and I never heard anything like that.

    Anyway, future commentors, the subject of this post is supposed to be the second amendment. Thank you.
