It's Back!

It's back. The obominations' disgusting statement in favor of trampling on our rights is back at change.gov, albeit re-worded as follows, under the Urban Policy section:

Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt
Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access
important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the
tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and
Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights
of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They
support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country
childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban

Yeah, great, gee thanks Obama. I suspect he doesn't realize that "respecting gun owner's second amendment rights" is directly at odds with "commonsense measures to keep guns away from children and criminals" Here's some common sense: a 13 year old child with access to a gun is able to defend life, limb, and property against criminals but a 17 year old child (as I'm sure Obama defines "children" as anyone under 18) without access to a gun (because their parents dutifully locked them up) is defenseless against robbery and home invasions.
