#GunControl: As State Senator Obama Opposed Gun Ban Exception to Defend One’s Home
Why am I not surprised
[ZIP]As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home.The bill passed anyway much to bronco bamas dismay, I suppose.
Just eight years earlier, in 1996, Obama answered “Yes” to a survey question asking whether he would support state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.” The Obama 2008 presidential campaign claimed the form had been filled out by an aide who mischaracterized Obama’s position, even though Obama’s handwriting was found on survey.
