Liar Liar…

… he’s on fire.

Obama.  Really.  Please.  Stop.

What a joke.

Obama: ‘I’m Not Going to Take Your Guns Away’
Christopher Cooper reports from Duryea, Pa., on the presidential race.

The Obama campaign talks a lot about new ideas and expanding the political map, but in the swing state of Pennsylvania, which the campaign has focused on almost exclusively since the Democratic convention, old-school issues still rise to the fore.

The latest example came Friday during a small political event at SCHOTT North America Inc., a glass factory in Duryea, Pa., where even a hand-picked crowd threw Barack Obama a curve ball.

A woman in the crowd told Obama she had “heard a rumor” that he might be planning some sort of gun ban upon being elected president. Obama trotted out his standard policy stance, that he had a deep respect for the “traditions of gun ownership” but favored measures in big cities to keep guns out of the hands of “gang bangers and drug dealers’’ in big cities “who already have them and are shooting people.”

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.

So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said. “This can’t be the reason not to vote for me. Can everyone hear me in the back? I see a couple of sportsmen back there. I’m not going to take away your guns.’’

    A person who supported the DC gun ban and voted for legislation banning all semi-automatic firearms, plus the author of the assault weapons ban aren’t going to take away my guns?

    I guess in one sense he’s right. They are /not/ going to take away my guns.

    i *really, really* hope there’s another reason you’re supporting McCain/Palin other than for 2nd amendment rights..

    i need the number for the dentist, btw. Thanks.

    Quite the contrary. I really don’t “support” either ticket. I don’t like McCain/Palin almost as much as Obama/Biden. But my vote will count and it happens that it will go to McCain/Palin on the basis to secure pro-US Constitution SCOTUS judges. This is to ensure the continued validity concerning Heller v. District of Columbia.

    I’m voting for the better of the two evils. No more, or less. But to fully address your concern, I don’t have faith in Obama that he is ready to be the President of the United States.

    Then again, with Russia gearing up in Venezuela, I feel a tad more comfortable with McCain. But that isn’t saying much.

    You really should buy a firearm anyway… You’re an Eagle too. Be Prepared.

    so you are voting for McCain/Palin because of 2nd amendment rights. I suppose I can see where you’re coming from, but I’m glad we can agree there are “two evils.” I’m very much considering to vote third party. I’ll be purchasing a firearm in the future, but not now. I don’t have time.
