Change Is Coming

David Codrea at War On Guns notices a detail on Obama's website that Second Amendment advocates should be aware of. And a startling illustration of the staggering hypocrisy of anti-gun politicians.

Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

Unless of course, your name is Barack Obama, in which case, assault weapons- real ones not the lookalikes the bill would actually ban- are perfectly justified on the streets.

Obama- in favour of assault weapons in the hands of his 24/7 security detail to protect him en route to the gym. Opposed to law-abiding Americans possessing semi-auto rifles to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Hypocrisy you can believe in.
