    whats this civilian army Obama wants?

    which will be

    "as strong as the US Army, and just as well funded"

    is that going to be like the fingermen in V for Vendetta?

    are we going to be running around worried about who might be watching?

    Dark days lie ahead im afraid

    Anyone reading into this is being desperately and deliberately obtuse. He's talking about police, firefighters, FBI, TSA, NSA: civilian agencies that are supposed to protect our country here at home that have been so underutilized.

    Honestly I have heard nothing about this. Even from my more conservative associates.

    That's because there's nothing here. No story. He's trying to talk about community service, peace corps type stuff, volunteering, and what red up there mentioned.

    Seeing as I can't get concealed carry in my area to begin with, he certainly won't. :rolleyes:

    Why would you need to carry your gun around with you concealed, and more importantly, do you really trust everyone else doing that as well? :confused:

    I'm still seething at the idea I can't buy an M32 grenade launcher for home defense. Those liberals took our guns!

    Many states allow concealed carry and, to the best of my knowledge, none of those states have wild, wild west style shoot outs. ;)

    The people I probably wouldn't trust carrying a concealed weapon carry regardless of the law so a ban does little more than just to keep the honest people honest, IMO.


    I know you can buy an M203 legally you just can't buy any ammo for it w/o jumping thru a lot of hoops and background checks from the Feds. I'd imagine the M32 would be the same way.

    Obama has said in an interview earlier this year that he would like a federal ban on CCW permits...

    Also, anyone who does not believe that Obama, Pelosi, Reid, et.al. will push for more gun controls, and another AWB is a moron...They are all vehemently anti-gun.

    No, no, I believe Obama wants a civilian army.

    He is, at this very moment, laying plans to have Ravenwood invade Jericho and New Bern.

    Can the gun-toting "idiots" (when they talk uninformed and using tactics worthy of propaganda) please stop doing this EVERY election cycle?

    THE DEMOCRATS WILL NEVER TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO OWN ARMS!

    No one is proposing a new amendment repealing the second amendment.

    So quit your whining and just be happy you can have a gun at all. Look into other country's gun laws and then talk about your own in a new frame of mind.

    Just thought it was worth repeating :)

    If anything, the Democrats look at the constitution as gospel.
    Hence the uproar every time Bush whittled away at it.
    That includes the right to own arms.

    we just prefer them out of the hands of idiots...
    although the constitution doesn't deny them the right :D

    haha...

    I just think its naive to say that Obama, reid, Pelosi, et.al wont try to pass new anti gun legislation...They are all very anti-gun...

    At the very least I see a renewed AWB without a "grandfather" provision...and possible a federal ban on CCW permits, although that may turn out to be a states right issue...

    Im not saying you are wrong, they are certainly anti gun (as well as I). but I can 100% guarantee you they wont take away your right to own them

    Well, thats clever. Your saying they wont take away ones intrinsic right to own firearms, but they will more than likely enact legislation so that the only legal firearm one can own is a single shot shotgun...

    Well, I guess I'm a moron.

    I don't think they'll spend their political capital on an issue that's nothing more than a meat-grinder. They know the NRA would push against it hard and doing such will help the GOP in 2010.
    Remember that Biden is gun-rights supporter, so there's may be some mitigation from the White House on such an issue.

    Considering the history democrats have of trying to impede law-abiding citizens from owning firearms you'll forgive me freeny if I don't share your complete optimism that the dems won't have another misguided go at it again.
