Guns and the Presidential Candidates – Scary!

12 10 2008

Okay, now I’m not one to completely promote guns.  I was raised around them, know how to use them, clean them and how to keep them locked up away from kids.  I don’t own one – yet.  I’ve been doing a lot of research on our two Presidential candidates.  And I’m not liking what I’m seeing.

It’s obvious that McCain is for the Second Amendment.  No real surprise there.  And no surprise that he wants to keep certain bans and restrictions in regards to assault weapons.  Lovely.  No problem there.

What I DO have a problem with, however, is Obama’s views and actions.  He’s all for banning guns at all.  Even in your own home.  Sorry – but I have a real problem with that.  A man’s castle is his home and should therefore be allowed to keep guns.  Preferably locked up, but again, that’s a personal choice.  What’s next?  Not being allowed to walk naked around your home?  Give me a break!

Yes, I do believe in restrictions in the sales of guns, such as background checks and no sales to felons that have used guns in crimes, but this country was started with guns, and I think that’s just going to be a part of  our way of life.

A friend has this saying on his RV:  When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns….
