In the given topics I have decided to direct my attention to Obamas’ stand on the ‘Gun Control Issue’.

http://www.gunbanobama.com/Default.aspx?NavGuid=530ecfa4-ae4e-4819-97e6-892463d99f08Has a number of facts that indicate Obama is against guns and is affiliated with several groups to aid in stopping the sale of firearms.
