Also, it seems as though none of the politicians ever mention protecting our 2nd Amendment rights anymore. What's the deal with that? Did the polls say that's not the issue they should talk about?
On the contrary, Obama will be VERY HARD to remove from office. They are already starting to talk about removing the 2 term limit for him. He very well may be President for Life, with Michelle next in line.
People in this country have no idea about how serious he is when he talks about "fundamentally changing" this country.
Obama will be VERY HARD to get rid of. He may end up President for Life. They are already talking of removing the 2 term limit for him.
Bans will be VERY HARD to "get rid of". The last one was only "gotten rid of" because a Congresswoman from Washington State, Jennifer Dunne, stood up to the Dems and Clinton and demanded a 10 year "sunset clause" or expiration on the ban when it was voted on in 1994. Congress (the Republicans) refused to recind the sunset clause so the law "expired".
Trying to actually REPEAL a law is incredibly difficult. There must be OVERWHELMING political support for a repeal otherwise it will just be used to extract money from an interest group. Far better to NEVER have the bad law than to attempt to repeal it.
As for supporting the 2A, the press (mostly New England, northern east coast ) will either suppress or attack ANY congressional member who even mentions the 2A.
You have a Congressman in Georgia who, just today, was viciously attacked for expressing concerns about Obama and the 2A. His name is Paul Broun and he deserves your support.
Here is a quote from his website:
"I believe that any law – whether at the local, state, or federal level – which restricts or infringes upon law abiding citizens’ ability to own a firearm is unconstitutional and should be repealed. Unfortunately, there are numerous gun control laws on the books today that I will work to repeal." Paul Broun
