But there's a reason why he put up the policy goals that he did, and I assume that he still wants to enact that change, even if he's not brave/foolish enough to leave it on his website.
So the gun one, eh? It said this:
[Obama and Biden] also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.
I don't have an assault weapon. I don't plan on buying one. But I still don't like this.
My husband and I were talking about this via IM today. I copied and pasted this part from change.gov, and he took my breath away with this:
and then they came for the assault rifles but I said nothing because I only owned a pistol....
I read this entire Daily Kos thread on the matter, and it was interesting to see the Democrat gun enthusiasts get belittled. Stuff like this:
because you're a democrat that owns/collects guns, no one should fear you?
that makes no sense to me.
guns have only one use, and that is to kill. but that's nothing to be afraid of, by any means, right?
Luckily there were a few people who batted down all the arguments. This line by GTMule was genius:
Liberals (a club of which I am a (usually) proud member) want to have teachers help make education policy, engineers make energy policy, and people who are completely ignorant about guns make ALL gun policy.
Not once did I see anyone explain the 2nd Amendment the way I understand it, though. And strangely enough, several people referred to it as the 4th Amendment.
Interesting peek into the Democrat world though.
