Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

President Obama is in a fix over firearms. He needs to win undecided voters in the swing states to be re-elected, but these areas are largely pro-gun. So after years of trying to dodge the issue, Mr. Obama let it slip in Tuesday's presidential debate that he'd push a gun ban in a second term.
Should President Obama win in November, it's a certainty he'll try once again to ban lead ammunition. Just two months after he moved into the White House, the National Park Service suddenly announced it was banning lead bullets from its parks.
Washington politicians are so anti-gun that they oppose a mere photo of a paper target. With D.C.'s gun-grabber laws under fire and pressure rising to allow concealed carry, the city's liberal political establishment is panicking.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is in charge of determining whether a gun model is legal, but the agency won't say much about its criteria.
"It would just hurt people who live in high-crime, poor areas and can't spend more on a firearm," said Mr. Keane.
