Four More Years of Obama: Gun Control ‘Under the Radar’ No More

President Obama is pro-gun control to his core, and his past is full of anti-gun legislation and anti-gun rhetoric that provides a clear indication of where the Second Amendment is headed in the next four years if we’re silly enough to give him a second term.

For example, as a state senator in Illinois, Obama supported one-gun-a-month purchase limits; he supported legislation that banned the use of handguns for self-defense (even in one’s own home); he supported an Illinois bill that would have not only banned but also confiscated “assault weapons” had it passed; and he supported a total ban on handguns.

As a Senator in DC, Obama opposed every pro-gun Supreme Court nominee he had the chance to vote against. He supported the Assault Weapons Ban and even joined Senator Ted Kennedy in attempting to pass huge increases on ammunition taxes in order to discourage gun ownership through cost inflation.

During his candidacy for the presidency in 2008, Obama filled out a candidate questionnaire in which he indicated his support for a national handgun ban. He also supported micro-stamping legislation while on the campaign trail and came out in support of DC’s handgun ban.

Candidate Obama knew he had to conceal his anti-gun tendencies; thus, he not only voiced support for the DC gun ban but also for the Supreme Court decision that overturned it (Heller, 2008). He would do the same thing as president in 2010 when Chicago’s gun ban was before the Supreme Court (McDonald, 2010).
