I just ran across this Google link posted 12 minutes ago and thought I would read the linked article. Silly me. Of course FOX cannot allow their readers access to this information. The page is no longer available.

1. Re: Gun Control: FOX News: We Report, You Decide. Not exactly.

That's why I hate FOX News. They just wanna bitch about Obama all the time. Has FOX News forgotten about (once upon a time) a wonderful man and president named George W. Bush. Please, they wouldn't know a good president with their eyes closed.

My grandpa is as right-wing as can be and says that FOX News isn't wrong, they are just actually willing to admit Obama's bad.

"Quick draw Republicans in Congress, intent on stopping any gun-control proposal from the Obama White House, are way off target when they accuse the president of violating gun ownership rights under the Constitution.

Gun control is completely consistent with the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. And President Obama is on target with the great American tradition of proposing gun control laws for Congressional approval as well as by issuing executive orders on gun control.

The Court reaffirmed this interpretation as recently as 2008 in the landmark case, District of Columbia vs. Heller.

I'm glad to see that it is available but not sure why the Google link led to a FOX News page that said the article was no longer available. Odd.
