Because he is hostile to the 2nd amendment???? Just a guess. The only thing preventing him from destroying that freedom is that it would be a political death sentence.

Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director, Richard Pearson, has this to say about Senator Obama-

While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners to forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family (Illinois Senate, S.B. 2165, vote 20, 3/25/04).


Obama personally voiced support for the D.C. ban at other times. In February, Leon Harris, a news anchor for the ABC affiliate in Washington, said to Obama: “One other issue that’s of great importance here in the district as well is gun control … but you support the D.C. handgun ban.” Obama’s simple response: “Right.” When Harris added “and you’ve said that it’s constitutional,” Obama again said “right,” and he is clearly seen on tape nodding his head in agreement.

he can claim to support gun rights all he wants, but his campaign speeches and voting record say other wise

That's a Bush era law that he hasn't rolled back.

If you doubt his 2nd amendment creds....look at Chicago's gun ban. :rolleyes:

Well, either Obama is a terrible president who apparently had his fingers crossed when he swore to uphold the Constitution, or the NRA is filled with backwards racist hicks. I know which one YOU believe is true.
