The Redistribution Speech

It seems that our President gave a speech in 1998, way back when he was a state Senator that reveals what he truly thinks about many issues.  One of those was his redistributionist leanings and much is being made about that.  What is also revealing is his ideas on gun control.
The recording also shows Obama in 1998 identifying with what he said was an American majority angling for new limits on the Second Amendment. “The vast majority of Americans would like to see serious gun control,” the future president said, noting that “it does not pass. Why does it not pass? It doesn’t pass because there is this huge disconnect between what people think and what legislators think and are willing to act upon.”
If he believes that the vast majority of Americans would like to see serious gun control, then he's misread the issue.  This might stem from his filters, those advisors who talk to him and his news sources, but I think, fourteen years later that we can say that the vast majority of Americans have seen that gun control is a misnomer for government control and that most people are not at all interested in government control.  

We really need to put this bozo on the unemployment line in November.
