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.

    no matter what the Constitution says if obama gets a few more Supreme Court appointments they will do whatever they wish and nothing can stop them


    correct, add to this ignorant voters, spineless REPUBICANS, we are doomed.

    King Hussien and Dianne Liberalstein have plans up their sleeves but unless they send an army to take guns away her little fantasy ain’t gonna happen. Besides Homicide-Chicago, Illinois needs some guns in the hands of ordinary citizens to defend against King Hussien’s thugs.

    But how will 0bama implement the communist utopia on the populance if they resist
    and armed with guns massacre all the 0bamabots?
    how will 0bama make sharia the law of the land and gay sex with 5 yr olds – and take the rights of infidels, and women away – he’ll have to take your guns first

    Pay no attention to his words. Pay close attention to what he does.

    [The Obama administration is making a two-fold argument for why it can force Christians to act against their faith in complying with the regulation it has issued under the Obamacare law that requires virtually all health care plans to cover, without co-pay, sterilizations, contraceptives…] key word force. eventually everyone may be called on to comply to the dictates of a tinhorn dictator. when you no longer have the freedom of choice. this is a big warning shot.

    […I think pledging to end “life as usual” ought to be sending up red flags. Barring us from going back to our “lives as usual” is not in the job description, and shouldn’t be.] you can say that again and again. now he can demand with a lot more fire power than what he had as a mere second rate politico. after 4 plus years. i’m tired of waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    He’ll let the cong minions do the dirty work, then deny any involvement. This a-hole just can’t lose.

  • suzanne

    I wonder if those Democrats who voted for 0bama and hunt and want to protect their family will be clinging to their guns like the rest of us now? Let’s hope we make it through 4 more years!!!!!!

    listen carefully.. he’s saying a heck of a lot more
    than he’s pretending to be at a loss for answers..

    btw, haven’t heard him address the need to make sure the “criminal” or
    certain that the “mentally deranged” don’t get their hands on guns, etc,
    re: Newtown, all i’ve heard from the “politicians” is a call to take away
    “law abiding sane folks” rights to bear arms..

    “He’ll let the cong minions do the dirty work..” that’s all he’s ever done. even voting present rather than actually putting himself on the line with a yea or nea vote.

  • usamopatriot

    Damn right you won’t, you POS. I’m not going to let you, I don’t give a rats @ss what legislation you and your commie democrat @sswipes in dc come up with. F you.

    bg ” re: Newtown, all i’ve heard from the “politicians” is a call to take away law abiding sane folks” rights to bear arms..” i think there’s some push back of blame by the mental health care community. i wouldn’t even go there if i thought there would be an even handed discussion with mental health care shortcomings leading the way. “Our system in mental health is designed to respond at the very last minute,” Wolfe said. when you try to control the uncontrollable in a system that doesn’t give you the tools to atleast make a decent attempt.

    Did he swear on a stack of Korans? When are those spineless cretins in Congress going to address the fact that he is not eligible to hold the office, he has violated the Constitution innumerable times, he was elected and re-elected by massive voter fraud, he has violated US law again and again and his “papers” are forgeries.

    Just prove he is ineligible and you can invalidate everything he has signed since taking office. The way to fix the mess is plain and simple- but there isn’t any backbone in Congress. They’re either complicit or cowards and they, along with John Roberts, will go down in history as traitors.

    just a sample:

    Was the Connecticut Shooter Adam Lanza
    Also On Hardcore Psychotropic Drugs?

    [In mass shootings, the usage of pharmaceutical drugs, particularly
    psychotropic drugs, is one of the first things that should be examined
    when attempting to piece together the incident. Adam Lanza, the
    Connecticut shooter, was most likely dosing up on outlandish levels
    of pharmaceutical drugs just like shooters before him.

    that’s because mental illness is not the problem per se,
    toxic drugs are, that is the mental illness connection to
    violence (bit more here & here & here)..



    Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest. – Mahatma Gandhi, in Gandhi, An Autobiography, p. 446

  • bobmark

    Citizen arms – individually operated, solid firing, home kept, sporting and defensive
    State arms –crew operated, shell firing, arsenal kept, defensive and attacking uses
    2nd amendment denotes the right of citizens to their arms without state interference

    The dividing line is pretty well established under current court decisions and traditional usage. Few arms crossover between the two.

    Right on, Truth Teller!
    Let the commies pass whatever p-ssy a$$ laws they wish, it won’t effect me one GD bit..until they come to try to confiscate, and then they will incur tremendous casualties. This is not a game, uncle Sammy, err, I mean uncle Bammy.

    Ever wonder how the Jews felt in Hitler’s Germany? We’re about to find out. There is no such thing as ‘gun control’- just like there is no such thing as being ‘a little dead’ or ‘a little pregnant’.


    Gun control in Obamaspeak means they have total control and Americans have no guns. Not the ‘approved” guns, not the ‘grandfathered” guns- no guns-none-period. Think it won’t be that way? How about a little recent history- like Obamacare. We were told if we liked our insurance we could keep it. We were told our premiums would go down. We were told it was a”penalty”, umm, no, it was a “tax’, no, a “penalty”. Were we told the truth? No. And we aren’t being told the truth this time either. We’re on the verge of a total dictatorship, and total elimination of our rights and freedoms. They have to get the guns away from us to do it. And guess what trolls……………you don’t get a free pass. Your life, if they let you keep it, will be just as bad as what the rest of us are headed for. You’ll be just as cold, just as hungry, just as controlled as the rest of us. Once they take the guns they don’t need you, your approval, your cruising blog sites and extolling the virtues of Lord and Savior Obama, or your vote. So welcome to Hell comrades……..you get to share all the opression you wished on us and worked to ensure we get.

    A socialist president which is Obama 12/30/12:
    “”I think there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can’t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids. And, yes, it’s going to be hard.”

    A true patriot president who loved America-Ronald Reagan 1980;
    “We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather then the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions”
