Conservative View: Flip-flopping like a Beached Trout

by CJFosdick on December 5, 2008

Conservatives need to take a hard look at Obama’s stand on Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. President-Elect Obama now says he will protect the Rights of Americans to Keep and Bear arms, which is the conservative view. Don’t let him fool you! His own words, votes, and actions of the past scream out just the opposite. His record shows that he wants to change the Second Amendment, advocating as much gun control as he can get. He seems able to change like a chameleon to suit the moment. He is flip-flopping like a beached trout on the gun issue.

Here are some of his quotes: “I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing the concealed carry laws.” • “I think it’s a scandal that (Bush) did not authorize a renewal of assault weapons ban.” • “I think local jurisdictions have the capacity to institute their own gun laws.” • “I believe in keeping guns out of our inner cities, and that our leaders must say so in the face of gun manufacturers’ lobby.”

Going further, Obama has consistently voted or taken stands to restrict private ownership of guns. Here is a sample: “Voted to allow reckless lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearms industry. • Opposes the Right to Carry laws. • Voted to ban almost all rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting. • Supports gun owner licensing and gun registration. • Voted to limit gun purchases to one per month.

In case some of you don’t know, one of the main ways Hitler got control of his own people was to have gun registration. Then, using these records, he confiscated all privately-owned guns in Germany. No one had the means to resist Hitler. And yes, Obama wants gun registration here in America. Make no mistake; Obama wants to get our guns. This is change we can count on if we are not vigilant.

With a Democratic Congress and Senate, we here in Folkland must be especially alert to make sure this fundamental Constitutional Right is not eroded under our very eyes. This is a vital conservative issue and we must let our government know we stand behind our right to keep and bear arms.
