Obama position on Gun Control

The Second Amendment: Individual or Collective Right?

Obama agrees to an individual's right to bear arms, in principle, but does not take it as an absolute right and considers it as a negotiable subject.

“I think it’s important for us to recognize that we’ve got a tradition of handgun ownership and gun ownership generally. And a lot of law-abiding citizens use it for hunting, for sportsmanship, and for protecting their families. We also have a violence on the streets that is the result of illegal handgun usage. And so I think there is nothing wrong with a community saying we are going to take those illegal handguns off the streets. And cracking down on the various loopholes that exist in terms of background checks for children, the mentally ill. We can have reasonable, thoughtful gun control measure that I think respect the Second Amendment and people’s traditions.”
This is From, April 16, 2008, Democratic Primary Debate, National Constitution Center in Philadelphia


These are his own words. I believe it states loud and clear the views.

From the Presidents of the United States of America
to add to Obama and his support for guns back in 2008

"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
- Thomas Jefferson

"... arms ... discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.... Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them."
- Thomas Paine

"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
- Samuel Adams

To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
- Richard Henry Lee

"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms."
- James Madison

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country."
- James Madison

"To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them."
- George Mason

"Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense."
- John Adams

"The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
- Thomas Jefferson

Since: Feb 12

Pretty loud and clear.

He wants to take illegal guns off the streets and close loopholes that allow minors and/or mentally ill persons to purchase guns. What's the problem?

Lack of reading comprehension is my first guess. Did you expect THEM to use common sense? Buy them books, send them to school and what did they do?

the guns used in these crimes everyone is talking about are not "illegal," but many want to make them illegal. maybe you should use some common sense and open up your one sided mind. if they are made illegal he becomes a liar and hypocrit. the only ones who dont comprehend are a few, the hen, the old dog who watches the hen, and farmer tom who likes to grow the funny tabacci. the hen although smart get his feathers ruffled for a cause he thinks deserving. the old watch dog just follows anyone who throws him a bone.
