Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Somehow, there are people who confess they are gun owners, who keep saying that Barack Obama is no threat to the Second Amendment.

They actually go so far as to say that he has strengthened the Second Amendment during his first term.

Short post today, first, as I have discussed before, he HAD to accept the Amendment to the Credit Card Reform bill that allowed carrying of firearms in National Parks. He had the chance to allow guns in parks on its own and he refused. That means HE WAS AGAINST THE BILL.

Then there are his Supreme Court Judges, specifically Sotomayor who lied to congress about her belief in the Second Amendment only to rule against its definition of an individual right the first time it came up.

Now, lets look at a quick rundown of where the President really stands on the issues:

  • • Renews support for gun control through UN Arms Trade Treaty (Nov 2012)
  • • Calls to renew the Assault Weapons Ban (Oct 2012)
  • • I believe in 2nd Amendment, but not war weapons on streets. (Oct 2012)
  • • Fast-and-Furious: no prosecutions for Mexican gun/drug snafu. (Jun 2012)
  • • Tells Sarah Brady will continue to push gun control “under the radar” (March 2011)
  • • Opposed bill okaying illegal gun use in home invasions. (Aug 2008)
  • • Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
  • • FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
  • • Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
  • • Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing. (Jan 2008)
  • • 2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month. (Oct 2007)
  • • Concealed carry OK for retired police officers. (Aug 2007)
  • • Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities. (Jul 2007)
  • • Keep guns out of inner cities–but also problem of morality. (Oct 2006)
  • • Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban. (Oct 2004)
  • • Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions. (Jul 1998)
  • • Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)

That is Obama's REAL record on the issue of the Second Amendment from his time in Chicago through this past week.. Lip service saying he “believes in the 2nd Amendment” but does everything he can to marginalize and eliminate it. Voted for bans and draconian limits on purchasing. Opposed measures to protect firearm industry from frivolous lawsuits hoping to bankrupt them. Pushing a treaty that will impose gun controls from a foreign entity. And refuses to hold anyone accountable for a gun walking program that has killed Americans that was, despite his lies, begun under HIS administration to foster a public outcry for more gun control.

So if you are reading this and are a Obama supporter, that's fine because you are free to support whosoever you choose in this country.

Just stop trying to pass off Obama like some 2nd Amendment Champion when in reality he is a gun grabbing Chicago politician who will be a gun control champion now that he doesn't have to be re-elected anymore. If you can look at a mountain of evidence of word and deed and keep your head buried in the sand then even Obama coming to your home, ripping the gun from your hand and pistol whipping you with it because he doesn't believe you should have it, wouldn't be enough to get you off the kool aid.

He hates the Second Amendment and has a record fighting against it that goes back 15 years. I fear if left unchecked, his reach into the future will be much longer.

    Banning, registering, regulating…….etc., are some things. TAKING them is an entirely different animal.

    The FedGov made 2 mistakes regarding yours truly: 1.) They let me stay in the military. 2.) They let me retire (after all of that VALUABLE training, which they can’t take back). And there are millions like me.

    Let ’em try to take our Liberty Teeth. That’s when the SHTF BIGTIME.

    I don’t think Obama has any plans for anything. His handlers and script writers don’t trust him enough to explain Their Plans to him. His sole talent is reading someone else’s words from a teleprompter. It would be nice to know who is really running the White House.

    “THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”
    Amendment II
    “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

    Anyone care to elaborate?

    I found this same article on JPFO yesterday when I was on the site looking at articles. I found this one and I shared it on Facebook. I’m a Member of JPFO. And I also have signed up to get Alerts from them. And this is one of many reasons why Obama needs to be IMPEACHED. He has constantly abused his POWER OF THE PRESIDENT by writing Executive Orders that he is not suppose to do without going through Congress. And these mostly are also UNCONSTITUTIONAL yet he does it anyway. Plus there are all of the scandals that he… Read more »

    The 2nd Amendment, like other things this regime seeks to subvert, is about your personal freedom and the lifestyle choices you make. Should I own a gun, should I buy health care, should I smoke and/or drink? America is in this situation because most of us made the choice to sit on the couch and let others make choices. It’s time make the choice to get off the collective couch. That choice is up to you!

    I have always thought ,like many others, that the Constitution was our stand, our values, our rights as American citizens of the free republic. Brokeback Obama has opened my eyes and mind. We must all get involved in conserving our rights as American citizens, before its to late! or is it ?

    As a veteran, I have seen tyranny in action around the world. To those that say what is going on in third world countries is wrong and that those leaders need to be replaced. I say to you now, Wake up and look at what is going on in America.

    Wake up that Patriot inside and lets restore America’s greatness and caring for those less fortunate.

    I dont believe he is after our guns for the sake of public welfare, no matter how much he spouts that garbage. An unarmed citizen is easily controlled. An unarmed nation is cannon fodder. This president, and that pains me to even say it, has plans for this country we havent even guessed at, in my opinion. In order to enforce gun confiscation, it will take military support and there is no way OUR military will support it. That leaves a foreign military presence on our soil to accomplish his goals.

    I will admit one thing. For this I thank our President. Before him I never thought much of our amendments, nor did I consider myself a Patriot. Congrats and thanks, Mr. President. You reawakened my interest in the Constitution, our rights, and reawakened Patriotism in me that I thought was long dead. I will not take my rights for granted anymore. As long as there is a breath in me, a fire will be lit to defend our Rights as human beings with Free will, and the Right to Freedom that was laid down by our Founding Fathers.
