I am sick and tired of hearing the hysterical, baseless, maniacal, misguided, insidious fear mongering about how "Obama is going to take our guns!" It's utter bull sh*t, designed to "excite the base". Candidate Obama had no plans to take people's guns. President Obama, and his administration have no plans to take people's guns or to mark their ammunition with a federal law.
I've owned fire arms for more than 30 years, having been certified as a marksman, pro-marksman, and finally as a sharp shooter by the NRA back in 1978 back at Boy Scout camp - I spent the entire week of camp at the shooting range. I have no fear that the firearms I and my relatives and friends own will be "taken" by the Feds, but then again I have an IQ over 130. I do NOT understand how millions of Americans can be so gullible as to fall for the hysteria that the NRA and right wing-nut websites and AM radio have whipped up.
I was in the Glendale AZ Cabela's 2 weeks ago, and I was astounded to see the rows and rows of shelves nearly empty of every type of ammunition, and the 100 foot long gun counter crowded with citizens desperate to buy a weapon. I overheard 3 different conversations of misinformed men telling their wives, buddies, or son how "Obama wants to laser etch all ammo, we won't be able to afford it!" or "Obama wants to make it illegal to own a gun" or "Washington ain't gonna get my gun!". As I was out-numbered about 400 to 1, I held my tongue.
If anyone has FACTUAL evidence that PROVES the ATF, the Obama Administration, Congress, or anyone else is planning in causing all ammunition to be laser etched, or taking away legally purchased fire arms, or any of the other hyped hysteria about fire arms in America, PLEASE, put a link to a non-partisan, factual website here in the comments section so I can stand corrected.
