Do It Again, Only Harder

Looks like Obama, who never met a gun control measure he wasn't instantly in love with, will be even better at selling guns than Hillary.

Here's an excerpt from the President-Elect's transition platform. Note that there's not a thing in here about punishing criminals -- all the measures are intended to make things tougher on law-abiding gun owners, a group who's level of gun crime is statistically close to zero:
"As president, Barack Obama 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 who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets."
