Obama on hunting and fishing

What is your take on this quote: I could not help myself I had to go to the whitehouse.org website and see what is going on .
I came across this quote which contradicts a lot of the laws I have been hearing that are going to be put into effect now that Obama is in the house. Just wondering what others thought, or heard anything else on this issue.


Sportsmen

President Obama did not grow up hunting and fishing, but he recognizes the great conservation legacy of America's hunters and anglers and has great respect for the passion that hunters and anglers have for their sports. Were it not for America's hunters and anglers, including the great icons like Theodore Roosevelt and Aldo Leopold, our nation would not have the tradition of sound game management, a system of ethical, science-based game laws and an extensive public lands estate on which to pursue the sport. The President and Vice President recognize that we must forge a broad coalition if we are to address the great conservation challenges we face. America's hunters and anglers are a key constituency that must take an active role and have a powerful voice in this coalition.


EDIT: I found on the site a contact for president. I sent questions about hunting, gun control, conceal carry, and various other aspects about gun manufacturing
Lets see what kind of response I get.

Re: Obama on hunting and fishing

Since we don't have a working crystal ball, only time will tell. Just more lawyer lip service as far as I'm concerned. He may be an eloquent speaker but talk and no substance is like making a cake without sugar. It's there, looks good, but tastes like crap, which is the real litmus test. I am a conservative person for the most part, but I intend to give the man a chance. If he's as smart as he thinks he is, he will be placing himself more right center. He's already pissed off a lot of left wingers by appointing Clintonites.

My hope is that he ran a campaign and told voters what they wanted to hear just to get elected and what he does from this day fwd is to be more center. He knows he'll be under the glass for the next 4 years, although most of the country will be tolerant, if he becomes a squeak in the wheel too many times, he'll be another Carter.

48 months of testing: ready, set, go....

I would almost bet that ban is going to be rewritten with a more accurate description of what an assault weapon is. I read an article published by the military about what is considered to be an assault weapon. If he goes by the military recommendations we should be alright because it was stated in that article that the AR-15 and semi auto rifles in hunting cal. are not assault weapons, they are manufactured to resemble assault weapons but not to the same specifications. They are manufactured in such a way that the components needed to become an assault weapon are missing and not able to be installed. I assume that meant fully auto.

Again I have no Idea if this is true as I do not own one, I do however have a m-16 that has been set to semi auto only. I am sure it will be on the list.

I do now the conceal carry crowd I chat with are very concerned over this issue. They believe he is trying to ban it also or at least take it away from the states. I do know that after the few colleges got hit many more people and states adopted conceal carry. Conceal carry permit for OK allows you to carry in 31 states now.


If anyone else read that article please chime in I can't find it anywhere.

Re: Obama on hunting and fishing

I hope that I'm wrong, but I was born and raised in Chicago. Their gun laws are pretty restrictive i.e. no projectiles sold in the city - down to bb's for bb guns. If he or his appointee's try and bring any semblence of those laws to the Federal level we'll all be in trouble.

The amount of graft and corruption that goes on behind the scenes is just amazing. What the Govenor did is nothing!
