Obama goes for gun vote?

I remember Charlton Heston. I admired Charlton Heston. And you, Senator Obama, are no Charlton Heston:
Barack Obama did not hunt or fish as a child. He lives in a big city. And as an Illinois state legislator and a U.S. senator, he consistently backed gun control legislation. But he is nevertheless making a play for pro-gun voters in rural Pennsylvania. By highlighting his background in constitutional law and downplaying his voting record, Obama is engaging in a quiet but targeted drive to win over an important constituency that on the surface might seem hostile to his views.
You know, sometimes I start to suspect that liberals think we’re stupid.
Actually, liberals thinks Pennsylvania Democrats are stupid, and they have some pretty strong evidence on that: Gov. Ed Rendell.

  1. I've never hunted and only fired my first gun last summer. Can I talk about gun control? I'm against it, but I don't think you have to have had fired a gun to understand the issue.
