Today an AP Article confused me into believing (for a moment) Obama might actually be a Pro-2A guy.
Then I got to this paragraph:
Yikes!! Are people really this naive? Is traceable ammo really going to help us stop violence on school campuses? It'll make it more expensive to buy ammo, reducing the amount of time we can spend at the range. Reduced range time equals reduced accuracy equals increased friendly fire. And with increased friendly fire, Anti-2A lobby can say gun owners are irresponsible and bad shots. And who's going to fund the increase PD and Military will need to come up with to buy this more expensive ammo? You got it, higher taxes.He said he would support federal legislation based on a California law that would facilitate immediate tracing of bullets used in a crime. He said even though the California law was passed over the strong objection of the National Rifle Association, he thinks it's the type of law that gun owners and crime victims can get behind.
Obama later goes on to say he supports the DC gun ban. Because, like his home state of Illinois has learned, gun control reduces violence.
