Obama: "I Don't Have the Votes In Congress" to Take Your Guns Away

The Messiah Barak Hussien Obama promised a crowd in Duryea, PA, that he would not take guns away... after all, he doesn't have the votes in Congress. From the Wallstreet Journal:

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.

So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said. “This can’t be the reason not to vote for me. Can everyone hear me in the back? I see a couple of sportsmen back there. I’m not going to take away your guns.’’

So, if he had the votes in Congress would he take guns away? Probably.

The other thing to note in his statement is his wording, "if you have a gun in your house, I'm not taking it."

So, as long as the gun is "in your house" he won't take it. So much for the right to "bear arms."

He also never says he "doesn't" want to take guns away. He states specifically, "Even if I want to take them away." Note he is not saying, "I DON'T want to take them away." Some may say I am parsing words here, however, The Messiah Barak Hussein Obama is perhaps one of the most eleoquent speakers of the day. The man is nothing but careful with his words. The way he made the statement is intentional.

As John at Stop the ACLU points out, he also specifically addresses his comments to sportsmen. So although The Messiah Obama MAY allow an exception for hunting, he definately is opposed to all other ownership. Just look at his record.

There is of course, one last statement to look at- "I’m not going to take away your guns." Of course HE personally won't take them away- He will leave that to the BATF.
