Factcheck: Did Obama flip-flop on gun control?

The NRA's Wayne LaPierre incorrectly claimed Obama pulled a bait-and-switch, promising during the campaign not to take away anyone’s guns, but now supporting an assault weapons ban. Obama is not now seeking to take away anyone’s existing guns, and he has for years consistently supported a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban.

Obama said assault weapons “have only one purpose, to kill people,”

Ummmm…..isn’t that true of any gun? I don’t understand…

While on the topic of not understanding, here’s another one…

...that a mentally unbalanced individual should not be able to get his hands on a gun so easily

I am STILL waiting for one of these types pimping the mental health angle how we diagnose those who do not wish to be diagnosed, while still maintaining both their Constitutional rights and their right to refuse medical treatment. If someone else knows where I can find that explanation, I’d love to read it, so post a link please.

Here’s what Obama and his sheep either don’t get, or don’t want to get…

The whole idea of the Second Amendment is based on keeping the government in check. Should the need arise to overthrow the government, we’re not going to do that with handguns and slingshots.

King George III didn’t want us to have guns, either. If we laid down and gave him what he wanted this country wouldn’t exist today.
