Hot Air has the background-
If Obama really believed that the DC gun ban “went too far”, as he said last week, then why did he vote against SB2165, which didn’t even go as far as Heller in its scope? Protecting a citizen who successfully defended his home against a criminal who could have done great harm to his family seems like a reasonable, moderate position to take — especially for someone who now professes opposition to outright gun bans such as the one in Wilmette. Instead, Obama voted to allow victims like DeMar to get victimized a second time by a criminal-justice system more interested in disarming law-abiding citizens than in prosecuting the real perpetrators of crime in the community.Barack Obama’s record looks clear on guns. He not only supported gun bans, but he supported prosecuting acts of self-defense.
Despite his rhetoric- and as we've seen before he thinks nothing of telling a group of voters one thing while privately reassuring others that it's all lies- the evidence shows that Obama is no friend of the Second Amendment or of the right to defend yourself against criminals who actually break into your home.
