12. that doesnt mean
i think that obama is a total putz when it comes to the 2nd amendment (but is not close to the total putz in general that McCain is). I think biden generally supports gun rights- except in the nature of assault weapons. Biden continually has been on the record saying he does not support licensing/registration- which is in my belief the way a right turns into a governmant granted privalege.

But obama on the other hand in my view, views the second amendment as a suggestion. He believes in teh rational standard interpretation of the second amendment- which means as long as there is a rational reason for infringing on that amendment- its A-okay.

But in the end i dont think either of them will have the chance to sign an AWB...presidential candidates once elected only get a fraction of what they want done, done. They have to pick and choose which battles to fight- and frankly i dont think gun control is one of them

Also unlike clinton- obama isnt pushing gun control....gun control was an important peice of Clinton's agenda- only a minor one of obama's.
