I have never been a gun owner. However I strongly believe in the right to bear arms.

I have thought about getting a shotgun in the house for home protection. But I never got around to it. I believe with Obama I better do something about it now while I still can. I believe this right may go to the way side in the future.

In addition if this country falls into a Depression like it did before when Taxes were raised in a Ressession we could be looking at the next Great Depression and again home protection would be vital

I personally feel my first objective though is to get a gun safe. Then I can think about getting the home protection.

I wonder how many others may be spured to do like wise with an Obama Presidency.

I think buying a safe is a good start. maybe a class in self defense might be the next best thing. then you can decide on what type of gun you really want for home defense. you might want to take up a shooting sport. shotgun, target, hunting, etc.

How silly is this question?
Don't you think we have bigger problems at this time as a legacy from bush?
Might want to look at the economy and eternal war as higher priorities; I'm sure the president elect is more concerned about those issues.

Chiel you are right on the money. I am a gun owner and was very upset then the 94 gun ban took affect. But we now have so many problems that over shadow any gun issue one can not vote on that issue alone. I voted for Obama. Another thing that the idiots do not realize is that that one bill cost Bill Clinton and the Congress in the election that year. Most Democrats have said that they do not want to sacrafice any more blood on the alter of gun control. I think you will see things like the war in Iraq come to and end, The economy focused on, and a real energy polocy be enacted. He will souround himself with people that are smart in solving problems in stead of smart in dirty tricks.

Its not important what he's concerened with. Its important what the legislature is concerened with. I'm quite certain theres reams of antigun legislation just waiting for this moment. One thing is certain, he WILL sign it if it crosses his desk.

Buy a semi-auto AK-47, some 20 or 30 round magazines and some ammo. The stuff he wants banned.

Sorry, but I'm not one to be willing to give up my civil rights everytime the economy takes a bad turn. And a lot of people in this country will not take another gun ban kindly.

You always forget to include the ones who facilitated bush.
Senate and congress and both parties.
Did Bush send troops to Iraq with the approval of congress? senate?
Did bush write all the bills that he passed?
Did Bush write in all the Pork?
And it was Clinton who made NAFTA a reality.
It was Clinton and comapany who deregulated the banks.
Barney Frank and Chris Dodd turned a blind eye to looming crisis. I wonder why? Could it have been to help blind the voters to Obam's obvious faults as well as those of a do nothing congress?
1 man did not create this mess. He had lots of help and from both Parties including Obama,Biden and Hillary clinton.

I bought 17 civilian military lookalike firearms (liberals call them assault rifles), 6 pistols and 5 shotguns in the last week, plus lots of ammo to go with them and plenty of hi cap mags too, and got all of them from private sales, so no paperwork there.
