Obama 2008: “I Am Not Going To Take Your Guns Away, That Just Ain’t True” (Video)

Barack Obama in 2008 made this promise to his supporters.

“I believe in the Second Amendment. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away… But I am not going to take your guns away. So if you want to find an excuse not to vote for me, don’t use that one because it just ain’t true. It ain’t true.”

Via Free Republic:

Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Sunday the president will soon have legislation “to lead on” in the gun control debate, announcing she will introduce a bill next month in the Senate to place a ban on assault weapons. The senator added she believes President Barack Obama will support the legislation.

    Obama’s ‘welfare case’ space pioneer buys $17 million mansion

    [“Taxpayers footed the bill for a $465 million loan to troubled electric
    car-maker Tesla as part of President Barack Obama’s ‘green energy’
    stimulus. But Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is now riding high with the purchase
    of his new $17 million mansion,” Wynton Hall reports at Breitbart.com.]

    i still believe AUSONIUS states the case extremely well:

    The pure argument (which few have the guts to say and defend
    these days) for private weapon ownership was, and still is, so
    that a population can remain citizens and not subjects to tyrants.

    Run from it if you must, but this was, and still is, the truth. It is not
    about hunting, “sporting use”, or the like. Once you buy into these
    notions, you get boxed into a corner from which there is no escape.

    The argument for possessing modern weapons is simply that those
    are what you will face should tyrants wish to “compel” your compliance.

    We have an open marxist party which holds the Senate, the White
    House, and much of the courts. They are making their plans very clear.
    It will not stop with compelling you to purchase health insurance, eat
    “right”, drive eco-cars, practice their “approved” religions, and the like.

    Marxists in the 20th century murdered tens of millions of their own
    citizens who disagreed with them. Why would anyone believe the
    21st century marxist will operate any differently?

    I wake to a country that I do not recognize.

    If we believe that line of crapola, I’m sure he has a deal on some fine beach front property in Nevada.

    But I don’t believe you any more.

    Elizabeth, I would LIKE to think you’re right, but from what I’ve seen recently, I have my doubts. Constitutionality doesn’t matter to this administration. If it did, we wouldn’t have Obamacare. It all comes down to interpretation of the law, and when we have Justices caving in to political pressures instead of doing their job and upholding the Constitution, all bets are off ….

    Obama 2008: “I Am Not Going To Take Your Guns Away, That Just Ain’t True …”

    So that means he’s going to try to take them, right?

  • DecentAmerican

    Just makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

    The demon in the whitehouse used to say that American guns were being trafficked to Mexico, and that was a reason for the need for more gun control. When he was proven wrong, he then was determined to make it happen….that resulted in Fast and Furious. Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican citizens died because of the demon. It was outright treasonous to arm our border agents with beanbag bullets, and arm the enemy with assault rifles.

    So what is the worst thing that can happen that would make Americans demand gun control? It would have to be a massacre on innocent children. Nothing could be more heinous and induce more anger. I’m not saying that the demon caused Sandy Hook to happen. But in light of him causing Fast and Furious to happen, you have to ask, can someone be truly that Evil? And would this Evil be willing to sacrifice Anerican lives in Benghazi? He was.

    And would this Evil be willing to sacrifice children’s lives to advance his political goals?

    No one can truly be that Evil, can he?

    Makes you wonder……doesn’t it?

    Two words: Expiration date.

  • Jack

    Who gives a damn what he said four years ago. Does it really matter? Does it really matter what he says now? If you comply then you deserve what you get.

  • Truth Teller

    Obama and Feinstein can pass whatever they wish.

    Compliance relies on their false assumption that we give a fu(k what they say.

    Legislate what you want, you traitorous mother fu(kers…implementation is going to be a bit(h.

    Why Gun Control is Unconstitutional

    One of the biggest arguments and dividing lines that come between Democrats and Republicans is the topic of gun control. The Republicans are staunch in their beliefs that the right to own a gun is protected by constitutional law while the Democrats believe that there should be so many stipulations and laws placed on gun ownership that it should be more or less illegal to own a firearm.

    The bottom line is that gun control is unconstitutional. Why? The Founding Fathers signed a document back in 1787 that according to the Second Amendment of the Constitution that the people of the United States have the right to ‘form a militia and the right to own and bear arms’.

    When looking at the Second Amendment in the day it was written and in today’s world, you have to study it hard. Back in those days, guns and militias were needed to protect ourselves from possible invasion from the British. Over the years, the right to bear arms has been a time honored tradition where even Presidents themselves have lavished over hunting rifles and the such. Fast forward to today and now you have murders and reckless gun handling. Laws have been put in place to curtail such things. There are waiting periods and background checks to be able to purchase firearms. These are not unconstitutional. In most cases these laws are needed to protect society. What’s unconstitutional is the outright banning of gun ownership.

    That is the thing. There are people out there who want to actually ban guns all together. You have to look at it in common sense terms. The responsible gun owners far outweigh the ones who break the law with firearms. The reason that the bad ones get all the limelight is because it is the first thing that you see on the nightly news. Liberals feed on that kind of stuff. I seriously doubt that a person who commits a robbery or triple murder took gun safety classes and is a member of the NRA. Like the NRA says, when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will own guns.

    Gun control is unconstitutional because that right for people to own guns has been around too very long. There should be laws for safe gun ownership. There shouldn’t be any to ban the outright owning of firearms. http://learnarms.com/why-gun-control-is-unconstitutional/

  • Jack

    Just by the fact that I exist and am not a felon gives me the right to defend life, liberty and property against people and tyrants that wish to do me harm any way I choose.

  • Highlander

    Patty, gun control is UNCONSTITUTIONAL, because the Constitution says “the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. Period. All the arguments about militias and advances in weaponry are irrelevant. If you read the writings of the founders, it’s perfectly clear what they intended to do with the second amendment. They knew that firearms would always be the only thing between the citizens of this country and a tyrannical government, and they wanted to make sure that we would always be capable of throwing off such a government. Anyone who argues to the contrary should be considered an enemy of the people …

    Thank you, mg4us!

    barry hussein soetoro saebarkah is a SERIAL-LIAR!

    His name is a lie. His citizenship is a lie. Every word out of his COMMIE mouth is a lie.

    “…unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated…”

    This is part of hussein soetoro’s PLAN FOR US, it’s intentional
    and part of his Firearms Confiscation Plan!

    barry soetoro’s real plan for us:
    Life in the USSA will become like life in Communist nK.
    Complete with forced labor camps!

    Anybody want to argue this is far fetched? Anyone want to argue that I’m “full of it?”

    Anyone want to argue that the White House isn’t a seething cesspool of Communism?

    Oh, and another thing …

    Advances in firearms technology are no reason to limit the peoples’ choice of weaponry. In fact, those advances are all the more reason why the PEOPLE should be able to own equally advanced firearms. There must be limits of course … nobody is in favor of putting WMD’s or artillery in the hands of the citizenry, but allowing the government to limit us to shotguns and single shot pea shooters when they have M16’s at their disposal is nothing short of a recipe for tyranny …
