Find the Flip-Flop: Obama on the 2nd Amendment

June 29, 2008 at 2:28 pm 2 comments

Months ago Barack Obama predicted the SCOTUS ruling on handguns which was handed down last week in a 5-4 decision.

Here he is in December 2007 at an event in Mt. Vernon, Iowa:

If you don’t want to hear it straight from him, here is a transcript of the pertinent text:

“The 2nd Amendment Right is an individual right and not just a right of militia and that’s where I expect the Supreme Court to rule. I think that is a fair reading of the text of the Constitution. I respect the right of lawful gun owners to hunt, fish, protect their families.”

I’m not so sure he would still say that gun owners can shoot fish, but I don’t hear any flip-flopping on the right to bear arms.

The Illinois Senator taught Constitutional law at the college level.

He probably has a pretty good grasp of the legal concepts in the 2nd Amendment.

    The NRA has planned to put $40 million into adverts before the election this fall.
    More than a third of that will be devoted to attacking Barack Obama on the issue of gun rights.

    -from 7-3-8 NY Times

    My question is:
    Where exactly is that other 2/3 of $40 million going to be used?

    Well what are you saying ? having a gun locked up in a cupboard is gun ownership ?nearly every crime is committed by owners of illegal guns not legal gun owners ,if you look at his body language you can tell he is lying ,like the green scam which of cotse we know is a scam now .
