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.
