I sure would appreciate it if someone could email me the quote. Post here or PM, whichever.
I just want it for posterity's sake.

Is this an accurate quote?

“As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. 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.”

Wayne laPierre says he will break his promise to protect the 2nd. Well, thats a big suprise! Anyway, if someone could verify the quote...

The President-Elect's plans - as they were originally posted - can be found here: Annotated Change - Ron Paul Forums (http://www.ronpaulforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=116).

From the Urban Policy page we have:
CRIME AND LAW ENFORCEMENT

* Support Local Law Enforcement: Barack Obama and Joe Biden are committed to fully funding the COPS program to put 50,000 police officers on the street and help address police brutality and accountability issues in local communities. Obama and Biden also support efforts to encourage young people to enter the law enforcement profession, so that our local police departments are not understaffed because of a dearth of qualified applicants.
* Reduce Crime Recidivism by Providing Ex-Offender Supports: America is facing an incarceration and post-incarceration crisis in urban communities. Obama and Biden will create a prison-to-work incentive program, modeled on the successful Welfare-to-Work Partnership and work to reform correctional systems to break down barriers for ex-offenders to find employment.
* End the Dangerous Cycle of Youth Violence: As president, Barack Obama will support innovative local programs, such as the CeaseFire program in Chicago, that have been proven to work. Such programs implement a comprehensive public health approach that implements a community-based strategy to prevent youth violence. He will also double funding for federal afterschool programs and invest in 20 Promise Neighborhoods across the country to ensure that urban youth have meaningful opportunities to succeed.
* Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. 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.
* End Racial Profiling: Barack Obama cosponsored federal legislation to ban racial profiling and require federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to take steps to eliminate the practice. He introduced and passed a law in the Illinois State Senate requiring the Illinois Department of Transportation to record the race, age, and gender of all drivers stopped for traffic violations so that bias could be detected and addressed.



cpileri, your quote looks spot on

Clinton did this. It did not help crime stats, but it certainly did increase the number of speeding tickets they gave out. It sounds like a government make-work boondoggle. More police = waste of money.

Hahaha. This will work when his constituents on the south side of chicago stop stealing cars.

Yes, I read that on Friday, November 7th. The web address WAS:

It is no longer there. Down the memory hole. Welcome to your brave new world.

Clinton did 100,000 new cops in his COPS program. Just a way to pay back the UNIONS. Small towns got more cops than they wanted and people complained. Some counted cops were nothing but a computer. When the 3 year program was meant to terminate as usual the UNIONS and cities complained that the mean Republicians cut the program that was meant to be temporary to begin with. Same ole .gov spending and wasting as usual. More midnight basketball anyone??? Ceasefire my butt has not been shown to work. LIE LIE LIE.

YOu can find that information cached by web crawlers. Many people here have also saved it as a PDF file. Also click to check out what the NRA has to say about that quote. (http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=4227) If you aren't a member I suggest joining.

We also have today's announcement that there's the 'gun owner' question on his application form, revealed by the NYT here. (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/13/us/politics/13apply.html?hp)

"Applicants are asked whether they or anyone in their family owns a gun."

Things sure may be different in Cheyenne or Chicago but it's obvious he doesn't want our kind there.

let's hope they go in order from page one down until one is accomplished they can't move on... they should be on page 4 by the time the 4 years is up.

I can only hope that people say

"Fix the economy first and then get us out of Iraq like your promised"

My gut is that Iraq and the Economy where just code words for Liberal Rule and Agenda.

wouldn't closing the gunshow "loophole" in its simplest form be restricting the right of free trade? The law would have to illegalize private sales altogether, and that is an infringement on a whole new level.

I'm quite certain 'they' know this. 'They' know there is no loophole. The target is all slaes not recorded on a 4473 and going through a dealer. The loophole thing is just clever wording.

They absolutely want to criminalize private sales that are not on paper.

Think about it. Gun control is about control. Difficult to control something if you can't track it easily.

It seems to me that there is a typo. "Fourth" is misspelled as "Tiahrt".
