Received This email earlier today.

This morning, Barack Obama held a press conference confirming our greatest fears...

He's launching an all out campaign to pass comprehensive gun control:

1. A so-called "Assault Weapons" Ban,

2. A "High-Capacity" Magazine Ban, and

3. A ban on ALL Private Firearms Sales without government permission.

And he wants the legislation on his desk as early as January.

How in the heck is the gov't gonna enforce #3?

'nother thing? Are box cutters assault weapons?

Our gov't is stupid!!!!! IMHO

Yeah, well wait till they go after "long range weapons," "sniper," and "tactical" rifles.
As I've said in other posts, SUPPORT people, and organizations who support the constitution. Man, it is time.

I quit using stupid, and incompetent in reference to the government. They don't desire to be leaders, they desire to be rulers. These moves are calculated, and well financed. Evil perhaps, but do not think for a moment there is not intellect and purpose behind these moves.

Re: Received This email earlier today.

No one should be surprised. There are probably more than 50% of the population that couldnt give a hoot about gun rights. The NRA and other orgs need to be PRO-active and come forth with solutions BEFORE the anti's do. Registration etc isnt far fetched. Gun owners need to be sensitive to the fact that average people dont understand or get Assault type rifles, or Mil type stuff at all. You cannot argue any longer that its a "right", the argument must be to agree on the regulation. It is coming, the only thing to do IMO is to try and moderate it.
