I am about 60% certain at this point that Obama will win a second term. The Republicans are quite disorganized and frankly are losing the the spin on the national debt. The question is, will they do enough damage to themselves that they lose both houses of Congress by substantial margins (filibuster proof majority in the Senate for example) and enough pro-gun legislators (either party) lose as well. If they do, then there is no check on the Democrats agenda and we will see more laws passed. If the Republicans do manage to hold at least one house, then chances are pretty good that Obama will be reduced to implementing rules changes only.

No matter how you slice it, I see a repeat of 1995 for the Republicans where they lost the budget mess to Clinton and the Democrats. Their intransigence gave Clinton a second term.

Most pigs will vote for pro-union Obama. And then Obama will continue to destroy the economy and help eliminate police jobs. Who would've thought antigun Obama would help eliminate Amerika's police state.

If Obama wins a second term he will go after the gun issue with a all out war on firearm ownership and our second amendment.

He swore a oath to up hold the constitution of the united States, he has not !

God help us all if this maniac is reelected !

Yep,
Agree with most here.
It's all about control and has nothing to do with the U. S. Constitution, which I doubt many in Congress and administration has ever read, let alone thought about or actively seek to support.
The fear mongers should jump on this, eh?

We got a real treasure when this clown got voted in. He is doing everything he can to assure himself a second term where he will run roughshod over our rights. He will go to every measure possible to disarm Americans "for our own good"

Do it now, why wait? If gun control is such a noble thing get it done. You got 16 months until the next election.

I don't believe he'll do it. He knows he would loose votes if he took any stance publicly on the issue. However, his voting record while he was in the senate speaks volumes.

He won't do anything THIS term. It's NEXT term where he would. We have to make sure he only has ONE TERM to damage this country. The guy is clueless on so many levels it's not funny. Amazing how he appears from nowhere and becomes president.....

Fourteen months after I wrote this, I am now 98% certain that Obama will win a second term. There are six weeks left to prove me wrong but frankly, short of the RNC paying individuals for each and every vote in the swing states, I cannot see Romney winning.

Start buying your firearm supplies now because I see a 100% increase in prices on November 7, 2012.

If the Congress keeps a republican majority, Obama may not be able to do a Klinton seize.

The public wants the govt to seize the assets of the wealthy class and give it to them.

Obama is a closet communist. Oh well.

Surprised? Not me...

In fact, all the autopsies I have been reading on the election I have been thinking for over a year and a half. If the Republican Party would only listen, especially in New York!

America as a nation comitted suicide on November 6th 2012. Obama will have more Supreme Court nominees which will drive us even further left. Kagan & Sotomayor are just the start. Ammo and firearms will be heavily taxed and outright banned in many cases. These traitors think the bigger the government the better for the citizens (read subjects)... It amazes me that America was so stupid a second time. The "gimmes" voted and want the "Gots" to pay for them. Obama says "You didn't build that"... He destroys instead in the name of bigger government.
