NRA To Spend Millions In Campaign, Nobody Surprised

Posted by Non-Hamster on July 2nd, 2008

U.S. Supreme Court building.Image via WikipediaA recent CBS news item went into detail about the fact that the NRA is planning to spend some 40 million dollars during this campaign, with 15 million of it dedicated to portraying Obama as a threat to the second amendment right to keep and bear arms.

I am not a hamster, I saw the very carefully worded response that Obama gave to the recent District of Columbia v. Heller Supreme Court decision.  He was indeed very careful to not take any position one way or another, which in itself has lead many to believe that he in fact is very much opposed to that decision and would, if elected, make an effort to nominate Supreme Court judges that would be inclined to reverse the recent ground breaking decision.

McCain on the other hand, didn't hesitate to come out in full support of the decision which confirms an individual's right to own a gun and defend themselves and their property in their own home.

I don't pretend to know a heck of a lot about Obama's stance on gun rights and gun control, but I have to say that his being so careful to avoid taking a position is nearly as bad as taking the wrong one from the start.
