Tester Pulls a Biden

Tester is trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Montana gun owners too:

“I feel very secure in my Second Amendment rights with Barack Obama in the White House,” he said. “I honestly do. And if I didn’t, I’d say it.”

Tester added, “I’ve got a lot of guns, and he ain’t going to take one of them away from me.”

He follows up with hopes to bring unprofitable, taxpayer subsidized Amtrak lines back to Montana, that were closed in 1979.  You know what happened to the last batch of Democrats who surrendered our gun rights for promises of pork?  Go ask them.  They’ve been out of office in 1994.  I can forgive Democratic politicians doing what they need to do for the sake of party, but going out of your way to cover up his atrocious gun record?  That’s not how I expect an A-rated politician to behave.

    “he ain’t going to take one of them away from me”

    I find this irrefutable Obama strawman argument really annoying.

    Nobody ever said that they even thought Obama would or could “take away” guns. So asserting it should not gain him any 2ndA stature.

    Obama will, OTOH, do everything possible to make it more difficult buy a wide assortment of new (or used) guns. He will do what he can to make it harder to use the ones you have. He will do what he can to “gotcha” on malum prohibitum gun technicalities.

    It’s not the point that “he’ll take away guns”. Why do so many give a pass to such and inane stance.

    And the only vote the Obama campaign can cite on its “NRA life member” TV ad is the Vitter amendment — the one that make is more illegal for police to confiscate legally owned guns during huricane-type emergencies. How’s that for 2nd Amendment support — big whoop.

    The way pro-gun democrats are giving cover for Obama is proof that just like in 1994 democrats put party over principle. I remember (ex) speaker of the House Foley, though it seems like the voters (and Testor) do not.

    I was just going to leave a comment about how Biden and Tester’s statements are technically true, but Joe already said what I was going to say. I doubt any gun control legislation would remove any guns from people’s homes, but it’d just make it hard to impossible to get new ones.

    Obama’s supporters have to stop saying “Obama’s not taking mine away from me!” with that feign outrage/fake cowboy tone in their voices. No one said Urkel himself was going to take your guns. We’d all die laughing first.

    Clinton didn’t go after Waco or Ruby Ridge himself, either, but that doesn’t mean those people are any more alive.

  5. Milquetoast says:

    Obama doesn’t want to take away anyone’s guns. He just wants to give people the choice of turning in their guns or becoming a felon. In the Illinois General Assembly, he voted to make a felon of “Any person who knowingly possesses a semiautomatic assault weapon (read the expansive definitions), large capacity ammunition feeding device, or assault weapon attachment must, within 90 days after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 93rd General Assembly, destroy the weapon or device, render it permanently inoperable, relinquish it to a law enforcement agency, or remove it from this State.”
