Barack Obama's Five Mile Gun Control

Why walk 5 miles to get a pistol?
What was Barack Obama thinking when he proposed (as an Illinois State Senator in 1999) that "all federally licensed gun dealers sell firearms in a storefront and not from their homes while banning their business from being within five miles of a school or a park."? Obviously, BO wanted to ban gun stores entirely from every municipality in America. James Taranto stirred up this muck at the Wall Street Journal yesterday. Read more at the Volokh Conspiracy and don't miss Michelle Malkin's take on this blast from Barack's not-so-distant past.

Naturally, now that Obama is running for White House blockbuster, some people say he won't stick by his absurd, unconstitutional scheme. He has matured, and is a big Second Amendment supporter now, don't you know, with infringements allowed only in the name of "common sense". Such as his support for banning those cheap Saturday Night Specials, which might be purchased by the poor and oppressed to defend themselves from the Marxist thugs in their 'hoods.
