Obama Calls For New ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban In 2nd Presidential Debate

USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Almost on a weekly basis I read somewhere that Barack Obama and the Democrats will not pursue more gun “control” should the President be reelected.

President Obama’s supposed “inaction” during his first term is brought up as “evidence” of this.

Yet, as I pointed out back on September 6, the Democratic Party’s 2012 National Platform that was approved at their National Convention called for “reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole.”

Excuse me, but that’s pushing for a gun ban and more gun “control,” if I’m not mistaken!!

Any remaining doubts about President Obama and the Democrats wanting more regulations placed on firearms should have been dispelled last night in the second of a series of U.S. Presidential debates. When asked what his administration has “done or plan to do to limit the availability of assault weapons,” the sitting U.S. President replied:

So my belief is that A, we have to enforce the laws we’ve already got, make sure that we’re keeping guns out of the hands of criminals, those who are mentally ill. We’ve done a much better job in terms of background checks, but we’ve got more to do when it comes to enforcement.

But I also share your belief that weapons that were designed for soldiers in war theaters don’t belong on our streets. And so what I’m trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced, but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence, because frankly, in my hometown of Chicago, there’s an awful lot of violence, and they’re not using AK-47s, they’re using cheap handguns.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

“Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.”

Once again, calling for a new gun ban. Two times. Two months.

At this point, no one can honestly say Barack Obama and the Democrats don’t plan on pushing for more gun “control” should the President be reelected without looking incredibly stupid.

Our right to bear arms is a God-given right that which mustn’t be taken away by man. Barry Soetoro (Barack Hussein Obama) has absolutely no business doing this. Even if he took away guns there would still be criminals and much worse criminality. There would be a thriving black market. We need firearms to defend ourselves and our properties. The truth of the matter is that people must learn on their own individually what’s right and wrong even in abusing a firearm. I’m sorry but this is slow and tedious process, no quick way about it. The Human Race still… Read more »

I think a lot of ppl over-looked his implication of going after handguns with his comment, "… but part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence, because frankly, in my hometown of Chicago, there’s an awful lot of violence, and they’re not using AK-47s, they’re using cheap handguns." This was a VERY telling statement. Also all of those ppl saying that these recent shootings i.e. Colorado, etc. was not going to give Obama a platform to push for gun control was proven wrong last night as well. This was the very excuse he used for his… Read more »
