This means the Remington and Berretta line of semi-autos would be banned in Canada.
Unitied States Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama also supports such a ban.
Barack Obama on Gun Control - Democratic Jr Senator (IL)
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.
At some point, I'm sure he will issue a clarification and state he only wants to ban semi-automtic weapons that are dangerous and not used by hunters and sport shooters, as he will quickly realize he cannot take a public position on the banning of the Remington 1100, as he would not be elected.
Don't be see surprised to see a list of semi-automatics that he deems exceptable...
If elected president, do you think he would not sign a bill to ban semi-automatic weapons, if given the opportunity?
For those that consider themselfs moderates on firearm laws and consider the NRA too far right, and not willing to compromise...
I assume that as long as you can keep YOUR GUN, you will vote for Barack Obama.
Where the Liberals are going with this, and it may take them 50 years, is that all hunters and targets shooters will use a bolt action rifle or a hinged shotgun. Handguns owners will be limited to a revolver or a single shot handgun.
Give an inch...
