There it was. The paper handout that I had brought home from the gun show over three years ago was still hanging on my bedroom door.
I remember the sorrow I felt when I found out about Barack’s “plan” to take away my rights to go hunting, a tradition that was very important to me and my hunting state of Wisconsin. I was only thirteen at the time, just old enough to claim my first ten-point buck! I knew that Kenyan Muslim Barack Obama would make it illegal for me to join in the tradition that had been in my family for generations.
I looked over the Plan over an over again. I just couldn’t understand. Here is what the handout claimed to be Obama’s Ten Point Plan:
Ban use of firearms for home defense.
Pass Federal laws eliminating your Right-to-Carry.
Ban the manufacture, sale, and possession of hand-guns.
Close down 90% of gun shops in America.
Ban rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting.
Increase Federal taxes on guns and ammunition by 500 percent.
Restore voting rights for five million criminals including those who have been convicted of using a gun to commit a violent crime.
Expand the Clinton semi-auto ban to include millions more firearms.
Mandate a government issued license to purchase a firearm.
Appoint judges to the U.S. Supreme Court and Federal Judiciary who share his views on the second amendment.
Since then I have become an Obama supporter, and I decided to remind all of us of the 2008 accusations brought against our president. On another note, I never did go hunting (and no, Obama did not prohibit me from doing so) and I am a strong believer in Government gun regulation. It has been shown to work in the UK, which enforces some of the toughest gun regulation laws in the World.
