Although Obama is proclaimed as a 'new face' in the Democratic party, he parrots the same gun control mantras common to old line Democrats. In fact, he may go publicly further than the average Democrat by advocating for a ban on all semiautomatic firearms.

Sportsmen should find Barack Obama's stand on gun control to be reprehensible.

Five Mile Exclusion - Denver
Friday, 07 March 2008

In 1999 Obama suggested a law that would prevent all gun stores within a five mile radius of schools and parks (See Obama's Draconian Gun Control). The white area is the calculated exclusion zone for a 50 mile radius around Denver for just schools. Parks have not been brought into the equation yet. Each pushpin represents a school.

It is interesting to note that all of Boulder County east of the mountains is in the exclusion zone as is the entire city of Denver.

Update: The map has been updated and covers the I-25 corridor for all of Colorado. The exclusion zone extends from north of Fort Collins to south of Colorado Springs varying from about 5 miles to probably 60 miles wide.

Pot Meet Kettle
Monday, 10 March 2008

Sportsmen for Obama? has been picked up by at least one Hillary supporter to influence gun owners to vote for Clinton.

You can find references here , here and here

What a joke. Claiming that Hillary is better on gun rights is like saying that liver cancer is better than lung cancer.

Perhaps we should go over and post links to Sportsmen for Clinton? on all these sites. 

One Handgun a Month & Obama
Monday, 10 March 2008

In May of 2003, the Senate considered House Bill 2579. The bill was about secret compartments in cars. Quickly the bill was completely gutted and replaced by language criminalizing the acquisition of more than one handgun in a thirty day period.

Obama felt this to be a particulary important piece of legislation and goes on for more than a page about this "very measured, modest regulation" starting on page 120 of the day's transcripts.

Obama voted for House Bill 2579, as amended. The bill failed to pass the Illinois Senate. 

The Illinois Years - Obama's Gun Control Votes
Tuesday, 26 February 2008

 April 4, 2001



  Obama voted against a bill that would have allowed concealed carry by those who had an order of protection issued against another. 

You can find his hostility to concealed carry in the transcripts starting on page 100.

 May 30, 2002 SB-1936

 Made it legal for someone to possess a firearm without an FOID card as long as they were in the direct supervision of someone with an FIOD card. The bill became law.

Obama voted against it.

 March 24, 2003

 From the legislature site:

"Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that the Department of State Police shall publish a list of handguns having a barrel, slide, frame or receiver that is a die casting of zinc alloy or any other nonhomogeneous metal which will melt or deform at a temperature of less than 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Provides that a building used for the unlawful sale of firearms may be abated as a public nuisance only if the person using the building for the unlawful sale has been convicted of the offense and the Department of State Police has published the list of prohibited firearms. Effective immediately."

Obama vote for this bill. It died in the House.

 March 25, 2003 SB-2163

 Would have lowered the age for FOID card from 21 to 18. The result is that some men in the military are not able to own firearms.

Obama voted against it.

 March 27, 2003 SB-947

 A "Gun Show Loophole" bill.

Obama voted for it.

 May 7,  2003 HB-1096

 Would have legalized handgun deer hunting.

Obama did not vote.

 May 15, 2003 HB-515

This bill was to notify gun owners when their gun was the subject of records request or search. The bill would have allowed the owner to have his trace information destroyed under certain circumstances. During this time Daley was trying to use trace information to use in gun manufacturer lawsuits.

Obama voted against the bill. It passed but the governor vetoed it.

 May 16, 2003



House Bill 2579 evolved from a car "secret compartments" bill to a one handgun every 30 days bill.

Obama goes on for more than a page about this "very measured, modest regulation" on page 120 of the day's transcripts .

Obama voted for the bill. 

 May 24, 2003 SB-257

 A House Amendment would legalize handgun deer hunting.

Obama voted in favor of the House Amendment. He did not vote for or against SB-257.

 March 25, 2004 SB-2165

 From the Illinois Legislature site:

"Amends the Criminal Code of 1961. Provides that it is an affirmative defense to a violation of a municipal ordinance that prohibits, regulates, or restricts the private ownership of firearms if the individual who is charged with the violation used the firearm in an act of self-defense or defense of another. Effective immediately."

Obama voted against this bill twice. It passed anyway. The governor vetoed and the legislature overrode the veto. 

There may be more bills that I have yet to find. If you know of any or find any searching the legislature's site, please email me. 

Looking for Info
Thursday, 21 February 2008

I am always looking for information on Obama from Obama himself. This morning I ran into this little video:

Apparently 64 pages amounts to "boxes and boxes of specifics"! So, I did as instructed and went to and looked for his blueprint. It is tough to find, but click on "Issues".

Searching the 64 pages, you will find "gun" and "firearm" exactly zero times.

That is why this site exists. 

California Firearm Law Obama's Standard
Thursday, 21 February 2008

In the Huffington Post, we finally get clarity from Obama himself.  Taking on The Lobby makes it clear that Obama thinks California gun law should be taken national.


After the horror that was Northern Illinois University Thursday afternoon, Barack Obama announced Friday morning that, as a constitutional attorney, he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms, thinks it doesn't only apply to the militia, and that he also plans to use California gun control legislation as a paradigm for a national policy to contain the spread of gun violence.

But, is it really possible to have it both ways? Can one support the right to bear arms, as well as implement the kind of national gun control legislation that will stem the flood of shootings on our nation's campuses, streets, and homes? Essentially, the question is, should Senator Obama become President Obama would he be prepared to take on the most powerful, and influential, congressional lobby outside of the tobacco industry, the gun lobby?

After the spate of campus killings at Columbine, Virginia Tech, and now at Northern Illinois, there is little doubt that the former president, and his attorney general brother, Robert F. Kennedy, would be hard at work on gun control legislation now.
Obama is fond of this quote from President John F. Kennedy: "Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate," but is he any more ready for hand to hand combat with those who put their rifles next to Gideon's Bible in Motel 6's from Idaho to Alaska, those who are the most obstinant opponents of restrictions on the possession, manufacture, and sale of firearms? He suggests that he would support legislation on the order of gun laws implemented, in California, during Gray Davis' tenure as governor.

So, what does that mean? As a start, how about:

  1. Handgun registration.
  2. Approved firearm lists determined by politicians.
  3. Assault weapons registrations and bans.
  4. A fifty caliber ban.
  5. Discretionary concealed carry.

And the list is expanding. California has passed an ammunition encoding requirement recently to go into effect January 1, 2010. So expect registration of ammunition purchases.

If this is Obama's concept of "supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms", I would hate to see what would happen to any right he does not believe in.

For a more complete view of California gun law, I suggest Calgunlaws as a start.

h/t to Alphecca.

From DirtCrashr I have learned that California also has:

  • A lead ammo ban,
  • and a microstamping law coming into effect.

Additionally, in the works are:

  • An anti "Sniper Riffle" law (any scoped hunting rifle).
    and an "Assault Pistol" Ban.
Between the high cost of living, traffic congestion, taxes, would somebody please tell me why anyone would want to live in California.

Obama Speaks!

From Obama Says US Must End Gun Violence:

Feb 15, 12:14 PM (ET)
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Barack Obama says the country must do "whatever it takes" to eradicate gun violence but believes in the right to bear arms.
Obama says he's offered his Senate office to help Northern Illinois University with the investigation into a campus shooting rampage. The shooting happened in his home state. Obama was campaigning in neighboring Wisconsin.
The senator, a former constitutional law instructor, says he believes the Second Amendment to the Constitution grants individual gun rights.
But he says it's subject to commonsense regulations like background checks.

I just have to ask: After everything he has said and done, does he actually think we believe or trust him? 

More on the Constitutional Right to Sporting Goods
Monday, 04 February 2008

From the AP:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Democratic Sen. Barack Obama assured Western voters Saturday he believes in Jesus as well as the rights of gun owners.
The presidential candidate warned people about hoax e-mails they may get saying he’s secretly a Muslim who might want to destroy the United States.
“I’ve been going to the same church for 20 years, praising Jesus,” the Illinois senator told more than 10,000 people packed into Boise State’s basketball arena. He is a member of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago…
…”And then there are people who say, ‘well he doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment,’ even though I come from a state — we’ve got a lot of hunters in downstate Illinois. And I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.”
Obama didn’t mention that he does support gun control and has a record of voting for it in the Illinois Senate. He backed limiting handgun purchases to one a month, but he made no attempts to ban them. Today, he stands by his support for controls while trying to reassure hunters that he has no interest in interfering with their access to firearms.

Well I have a few questions:

Barack, do you support my right to carry bowling balls? How about those extra-heavy, 15 pound, assault balls?

Do you support my right to shoot someone in my apartment who has invaded, unannounced and uninvited pointing a knife or gun at me?

How about if I live in the Chicago slums?

How about if I live downstate a mile from my nearest neighbor, 20 miles from the nearest cop?

These questions may seem completely unrelated, but according to Barack, they are not.

According to Barack, the Second Amendment is about hunting traditions from rural areas and has nothing to do with individual's rights.

And according to Barack, hunters should have access to guns while those in the inner city should be restricted because of the danger.

I am not sure where is he going with this or how he might attempt to accomplish it, but it sounds like we are heading back towards the racist roots of gun control.

Updates and News

How hunting and hunters are affected by gun control?

Hunting is a very serious profession and there are many things that a person needs to know before he jumps into this profession. There were different kinds of weapons used in the past centuries for hunting purpose.

The guns have become popular in the past few centuries and many hunters have started using guns for the hunting purpose.

There are some hunters who still use the old ways of hunting because they believe that using a gun for hunting is an injustice with the animals.

We don’t understand that why they think so because there are many others who say that hunting is an injustice with the animals. So, how these so-called hunters would respond to such statements.

However, this is not the point of discussion today so we’re not going to talk deeply about it but we’ll discuss this topic some other day. Our today’s topic is to discuss that how the gun control affects the hunters and hunting.

Gun Control is a set of rules and regulations that allow a particular group of people to use a weapon in a certain way.

These rules and regulations are approved by the government and every citizen needs to follow these rules otherwise, they may suffer from several problems for breaking the rules.

There were no particular rules designed for the animal hunting before but when the Government realized that the guns are being used wrongly for the hunting, they prepared several rules for that.

Shot guns

In some countries, hunters are strictly forbidden to use the shot guns for hunting as a shot gun can kill a group of animals just by one shot. This was causing the lack of different species of animals due to which different authorities took action and restricted the use of shot guns for hunting.

Now, if a hunter is found using a shot gun for hunting, he’ll be heavily fined and he’ll be imprisoned for a specific period of time. This will help in saving different species of animals.

The use of range finder

In some countries, hunters are required to use the range finder to hit the target. This rule is specially designed for the safety of hunters as it allows them to hit the animal from a distance.

There were several cases in which hunters got killed by the animals as they were not standing on a standard distance.

In order to save the hunters from being killed, the authorities have made the use of range finder essential for the hunters. Now, hunters can easily target the animals without any fear of being killed.

If you want to buy a range finder for hunting, we strongly recommend that you buy the Best hunting rangefinder as it will come several helpful features. You can buy the range finders from several local sellers or you can buy them online from different reliable stores.

Make sure that the range finder, you’re going to buy, fulfills all the requirements that are essential for focusing the target accurately.
