Shamelessly stolen from Vilmar
Looks like the guy so many swoon over wants to take away your guns…….while simultaneously having a soft spot for criminals. (Isn’t that so like liberals?)
In his answers to the 1998 Illinois State Legislative National Political Awareness Test, Obama said he favored a ban on “the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.”
By definition, this would include all pistols ever made, from .22 target pistols used in the Olympics to rarely-fired pistols kept in nightstands and sock drawers for the defense of families, and every pistol in between. Obama’s strident stand would also ban all semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, whatever their previously legal purpose.
In 1999, Obama proposed to make it a felony for the gun owner if a firearm stolen from his residence and used in a crime was not “securely stored” – effectively negating the homeowner’s right to self-defense.
On going soft on criminals:
Let’s also note that Obama opposes mandatory minimum sentencing, and was given a rating of 75 by the National Criminal Justice Association in 2005, which is the bare minimum to qualify for a “mixed” record on crime; 74 or lower is deemed a “soft on crime” record by the organization.
