Facts about gun rights

Published: Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 04:43 PM.

 President Barack Obama believes   the Second Amendment creates an individual right, and he respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms. He will protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport and use guns.

  Ted Kennedy's bill had nothing to do with hunting ammo. The bill sought to ban protective body armor piercing ammo. I have not seen any deer roaming around wearing body armor and I'm sure law enforcement is not in favor of bad guys having such ammo. Maybe Sheriff Nugent would care to comment on that.

President Obama signed a bill allowing loaded firearms in most national parks.

As a US Senator Obama has not pushed for a five-mile limit on gun shops and it is not part of his presidential campaign.

Obama has made no statement for a Second Amendment test for his Judicial appointees.

The Obama administration has agreed to talk about writing a UN treaty to regulate arms imports and exports which in no way bans their possession.

Most of this stuff is put out by the NRA which receives a great deal of it's funding from gun and ammo manufacturers.  Some folks believe it and run out and buy another couple thousand rounds of ammo and maybe another assault rifle, more profits for the manufacturers who send another big check to the NRA.
