I don’t know how much clearer it needs to be for gun owners and non-gun owners who respect and revere the Constitution and the freedoms described therein, but Barack Obama is a flat-out gun grabbing absolutist and his election would be a giant step toward destroying your constitutional rights. There is no question or doubt about this. Obama knows it, and he has done everything he can to obscure it by intimidating any media outlet that dares to air the truth.
I have written on this issue many times over the campaign, but maybe not enough times. This is the reason why activists like Sebastian rightly and successfully pushed for the ouster of rifle company president and Obama donor Dan Cooper after his support of Obama came to light.
Obama is not just anti-gun; he is an anti-gun zealot. Despite his attempt to paper over the writing on the wall surrounding this issue, there is no doubt that Second Amendment rights would be severely diminished under an Obama administration. Obama’s goal is to have no law-abiding way to exercise your right to keep and bear arms.
Obama has made a lot of promises he has no way to keep if elected, but having huge majorities in both houses of Congress for at least two years provides ample time to seed the federal benches with anti-gun absolutist judges in his own image, tainting the judicial pool for higher benches and tilting the balance of the courts for years to come.
All of this became even more evident yesterday, when audio from a 2004 Obama interview with Chicago Public Radio surfaced. Obama says in no uncertain terms that he supports a federal ban on Concealed Carry (CCW).
The audio below is culled from an interview that can be found here (find September 13, audio link to “Campaign Notebook, Obama on guns and crime”).
