While you all pat yourselves on the back and are passing out huzzahs for what your supposed leaders may be saying you have all already set precedent whereby the imperial government can strip you of your right to bear arms.

Say drug posession, or pick your poison, anything but murder/rape/ or a brutal crime, I would be stripped of my right to bear arms even if my life or the lives of my family are endangered. Just because I committed a crime, and lets be clear, a crime other then murder/rape/ or some other brutal crime, I am stripped of my 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Cont'd

"I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them a reality," Obama said. “The most important changes we can make will depend on Congressional action.”

In addition to calling for a ban on military style assault weapons, Obama demanded universal background checks and a ban on ammunition magazines holding more...
