The President On Gun Rights


I found it encouraging that at last night's televised "Gun Town Hall" President Obama re-affirmed Americans' right to buy guns, and even said his wife, Michelle Obama, turned to him while the two drove through Iowa during the 2008 campaign and said that if she lived in a farm house with a sheriff's office far away, "I'd want to have a shotgun or a rifle to make sure I was protected and my family was protected."

 "And she's absolutely right," he said.

It is certainly an interesting image to conjure with.
