Obama Linked To Gun Control Efforts

Over the weekend, Kenneth P. Vogel wrote in Politico that Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has worked to assure uneasy gun owners that he believes the Constitution protects their rights and that he doesn’t want to take away their guns--but before he became a national political figure, Obama sat on the board of a Chicago-based foundation that doled out at least nine grants totaling nearly $2.7 million to groups that advocated the opposite positions.

The foundation funded legal scholarship advancing the theory that the Second Amendment does not protect individual gun owners’ rights, as well as two groups that advocated handgun bans. And it paid to support a book called “Every Handgun Is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.”

Obama’s eight years on the board of the Joyce Foundation, which paid him more than $70,000 in directors fees, do not in any way conflict with his campaign-trail support for the rights of gun owners, Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Obama’s presidential campaign, asserted in a statement issued to Politico this week.

FYI, Obama's full legal name is as follows- Barack Hussein Mohammed Obama. I don't know if ya'll are aware of the meaning of the name Hussein so I'll let you in on it. The name Hussein means "THE MUSLIM". Now we all know that he is a muslim and that the Church of Christ affiliation is just a smoke screen but, I'm of the opinion that we don't need a muslim President. Especially one who's name is Barack THE MUSLIM Mohammed Obama. I wonder if he will be sworn in on a Koran if he is chosen? Just something to think about...
