    Just one of many, many reasons why Obama MUST be defeated this November.

    Since Obama will have nothing to lose in his "final" term, he will call for an assault weapons ban from congress.

    Congressional democrats will do his bidding and the limp **** republicans won't lift a finger to oppose them.

    The gun grabbers learned a valuable lesson from the last AWB.
    The next ban will have teeth and WILL take your guns away from you.

    There will be little if any grandfathering existing weapons, so don't think just because you have it now you can keep it.

    Go to the polls and vote AGAINST Obama.
    Your vote is desperately needed to send his gun grabbing ass back to Illinois.

    How long before the truth squadders show up to say that we shouldn't believe Obama would do this, but should believe that Romney and a Republican Congress would do this?

    Not long, I bet.

    Obama and his Chicago mafia don't even know what an assault weapon is.

    You cannot legislate the maniacs off the streets, they can only be shut down by an armed citizenry.

    How is this news? Has anyone ever had any doubt Il Duce doesn't like firearms?

    We are talking about the same president who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize before he ever took office and subsequently won.

    Who now has a 'kill list' and ordered the execution of an American citizen overseas without due process.

    Assuming the balance in Congress remains at least as it is now for Republicans (a pretty reasonable assumption), the House doesn't have to lift a finger to oppose the Democrats. The Democrats can't do squat on their own. All the Republicans have to do is not actively help them pass a gun ban. Do you think they're capable of that? If you don't, it doesn't really matter who's in the White House, does it?

    How about a link to a credible news source?

    You do realize that if Obama wanted a AWB all he would have to do is sign an E.O. banning AWs, right?

    The White House spokesman himself said it, so there's no doubt it's Obama's position. (Not that we didn't already know)

    Obama can't ban AWs by executive order. He can make it more difficult to build them, like Bush did, but he can't ban ownership of them. That would require a law.

    So if this same video was posted on NBC the content and what Jay said would be different? Don't be ridiculous.

    Either we have a bunch of Obama supporters on this forum or none of you own guns?

    I've never heard so many limp wristed responses to possibly losing your firearms, and one of your constitutional rights.

    It doesn't matter one hoot in hell that we already know Obama is anti-gun, or that you can't legislate criminals off the streets.

    Where's the fire in your belly about a future assault weapons ban? ALL gun owners need to rise up and make your voice be heard about this attack on our right to keep and bear arms.

    We should be raising holy hell about this, instead of just bending over and getting ready for it.

    We the people (individually and collectively) will decide if we will be disarmed...not the gov't. The gov't my think they can disarm us but that would prove to be a losing proposition on their part.

    If O wins another term, bank on this being front and center for the next year or so. Think "Obamacare", only with less explanation and more hand wringing.

    What attack is that? The President admitting he'd sign a ban? Bush said the same thing. If Romney had an honest bone in his body, he'd say the same thing too. (ETA: Oh wait, Romney did say this in 2008. I guess he once had an honest bone in his body, but since he lost his presidential bid in 2008, he figured that pesky honesty is holding him back)

    It's not an attack until the law gets written and passed by congress. If you have any faith at all in the Republican-led House, you needn't get all worked up about this.

    He had a Democrat controlled House and Senate to get 0bamacare passed. He's likely to have neither in January if he's reelected.
