    •  Push? (0+ / 0-)

      He didn't push anything. He was asked what he supported and what he did not support.

      You're full of crap, as usual.

      Calling other DKos members "weenies" is a personal insult and therefore against site rules.

        I don't think he can panic the herd by saying "Obama if nothing to promote gun control".

        That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".

      • the reason for a spike in gun purchases (0+ / 0-)

        after Obama's election wasn't because of...
        Obama saying, in writing, that he supported state legislation to:
        ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns
        and ban assault weapons.

        Nor was it for hissupport of banning the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic firearms, increasing state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms and requiring manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms, while he was a state senator in Illinois.

        Nor was  it while he was in the U.S. Senate,  when he supported the re-authorization of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban & voted against legislation protecting firearm manufacturers from liability suits.

        And, of course, ignoring the fact that people that bought guns were flat-out correct that Obama would try to push to ban guns & the far larger spike after he did try to push for the AWB...

        The real reason for the spike in gun sales after his election--based upon the impeccable credibility of your clairvoyance is.....because he's black.

        Top notch argument, Bob.
        Hats off to you.
