Obama’s First 90 Days

Posted by Gunner on November 11, 2008

“My first priority will be to reinstate the assault weapons ban as soon as I take office. Within 90 days, we will go back after kitchen table dealers, and work to end the gun show and internet sales loopholes. In the first year, I intend to work with Congress on a national no carry law, 1 gun a month purchase limits, and bans on all semi-automatic guns.”

–Barack Obama, VPC Fund Raiser, 2007

If the above quote doesn’t scare you nothing will. Please don’t hide your head in the sand and wait to see what happens. Be pro-active and if your not a member of the NRA join NOW! Time is short to mobilize our combined voices to stop this attack on the constitution and our second amendment right!
Just think what will happen. Your local gunshop will close from the banning of all semi auto guns of any type as well as the one gun a month restriction plus increased cost of ammo from Obama’s initiative to place a federal tax on ammo that will put ammo prices out of reach of the average shooter. Most gun makers that don’t have large government contracts will be out of business. Names like S&W,Colt and Ruger as well as many other smaller companies will be a footnote in history.
I’m not being an alarmist this can happen if we don’t band together and petition out congressmen and support organizations that protect our second amendment. Normally I try to leave politics out of this blog but this is serious and it’s time to get off the fence and say what I think. I hope you will join your fellow sportsman in stopping this attack on our God given rights set down by the framers of the constitution.

    That quote succinctly expresses Obama’s positions, but I’ve not been able to find a source for that particular one, although I’ve seen it referenced a number of times on forums.

    It’s especially significant because that quote shows anti-2nd Amendment policies are a priority for him – at least in 2007 before the financial problems in 2008.

    Were you able to find a reference for it?

    H i Paul,

    It’s apparently been pretty buried by the media I guess but I did verify it on I’m not through looking for other references yet but Snopes has always been pretty accurate.
    I did hear a speech on the radio he made back in 2005 in IL that had a lot of the same statements. The references to the gun issue were not as explicitly spelled out as far as what and when but the message certainly did come through.
    When I find the reference I’ll sure send it along. Pretty scary stuff though!
