Obama just has to be a Republican. Seriously I believe he was never a liberal and the conservatives pulled off the greatest political hoax of all time. Let's look at the facts. In the 5.5 years he's been in office he has sold more guns than the last 4 presidents combined. Gun laws have actually consistently diminished each year he's held office. He's threatened all these executive orders but done zip. As of yesterday he has all the blue-dog democrats shaking in their boots by suggesting we enact a ban like Australia did (this will absolutely return control of both house & senate to republicans in November). He's over 4 years past his promise to close gitmo AND has the lowest approval rating of any President since Jimmy Carter. Oh, and there's that fast-n-furious debacle he bungled. I'm telling you guys he's a neo con. You've been deceived and even if I'm wrong you still can't have the guns. Why? Because its against the law for the government to ban guns. Oh and he yanked the rug out from under Hillary Clinton back in 2008 when she was the perceived front runner. What a master conservative. I don't know who thought this plan up but it is the most ingenious idea in American political history.......but all the libs saw was that he was black. They never ever suspected a thing. They took the bait hook, line, and sinker. Brilliant!

. If by pushing for an Austrailian style gun confiscation results in Republicans taking the Senate and the Presidency, does this not represent the will of the people these political clowns are supposed to represent? I hope your analysis is accurate.

There will be more of this until it starts personally effecting the small arms industrial complex and their lobby, the NRA. Believe it. You know, like the Vietnam war was called off because upper class kids didn't want to fight in the Meatgrinder. So better lock up your guns Daddy, cuz Junior wants the real thing after a day playing video games. But also remember that working class schools like RHS don't count.

--Gun Owner but most emphatically not NRA.
