Investors Business Daily has a interesting article on Obama's views on Concealed weapon permits and those who own guns for hunting...
"Barack Obama says he won't take folks' guns away as long as they're hunters. But when the hunted are his constituents, well, that's different: He opposes concealed carry and the right to self-defense."
Very good article and well worth the read. Some of the interesting points made:
"It's no surprise, then, that Sen. Obama has come out in opposition to concealed-carry laws. In anticipation of an April 16 debate in Philadelphia on the anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings, Obama told the Pittsburgh Tribune: "I am not in favor of concealed weapons. I think that creates a potential atmosphere where more innocent people could (get shot during) altercations."
"According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 65.7% of the U.S. population lives in the 39 right-to-carry states, and there's no indication such laws have turned our neighborhoods into the O.K. Corral. To the contrary, all the stats we've seen show a steep decline in murders and violent crimes after a state adopts a right-to-carry law.
Virginia is one of those states, but the only one who had the right to carry last April 16 was Seung-Hui Cho. He shot 32 people to death on a Virginia Tech campus that had declared itself gun-free."
Let us not forget Senator Kerry with his trusted, brand new, just out of the package, ready for the photo op, shotgun and wardrobe during his campaign in 2004. Dont recall if he "bagged" anything during this hunt but it would have been interesting to know how Theresa prepared the game...
