    Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions


    Principles that Obama supports on gun issues:
    *Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
    * Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of
    firearms.
    * Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with
    firearms.

    Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
    A bill to prohibit civil liability actions from being brought or
    continued against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, or importers
    of firearms or ammunition for damages, injunctive or other relief
    resulting from the misuse of their products by others. Voting YES
    would:


    * Exempt lawsuits brought against individuals who knowingly
    transfer a firearm that will be used to commit a violent or drug-
    trafficking crime
    * Exempt lawsuits against actions that result in death, physical
    injury or property damage due solely to a product defect
    * Call for the dismissal of all qualified civil liability actions
    pending on the date of enactment by the court in which the action was
    brought
    * Prohibit the manufacture, import, sale or delivery of armor
    piercing ammunition, and sets a minimum prison term of 15 years for
    violations
    * Require all licensed importers, manufacturers and dealers who
    engage in the transfer of handguns to provide secure gun storage or
    safety devices

    Political discussion is not permitted on THR. Try APS.
