Obama Questions Would-Be Appointees About Their Gun Ownership

Gun Question to Potential Appointees Might Explode Debate

Barack Obama is firing away seven pages of detailed questions to wannabe presidential appointees, but one inquiry has gun rights activists upset. The question states:

“Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.”

Politico reports that the Obama team says it just wants to verify legal ownership of firearms, but others accuse Obama of potentially denying employment based on an applicant's gun ownership.

Do you think Obama is putting Second Amendment rights in the line of fire or just trying to avoid embarrassing situations (think Dick Cheney shooting a man in the face)?

As a regretful NRA member tired of constant pleas for money, I believe Obama in in cahoots with the NRA to help them raise money from conspiracy nuts and those who are generally paranoid.

He knew what he was getting when he chose the A of D above all others!

He says he does, but I don't know how seriously I should take his words when he's cowering in the corner trying to hide from me ;)
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
He does. One thing about that man is he knows when to say that he appreciates me. He knows how to make a big, house of a woman feel good about herself right now! Marrying or not marrying the right person is so important to your future happiness. I hope your guy realizes what a gem he has too.

"Who's been denied a job after answering yes to the question?" I agree with Steph. There is no reason to worry or get upset just for worries sake. Let's just all give this man a chance and see what happens. And you all know how I felt about Obama, but I think we should all grab our big erasers and clean the board. I really don't want the next four to eight years to be like the last eight. Constant bickering and worry before anything has even been done. Obama being blamed for things he can't possibly be responsible for, etc. Anyone with me on this?

And I would SO whine about the rain and slow down! Isn't it great to get along so well?!? (You might want to buy some silver bullets, apparently your neighborhoods are invested with undead.)

There you go, glad I could help! I'm sure you are a very lovely person, but I do what I can to keep more people from moving here and driving up the price of our real estate, complaining about the rain, and refusing to drive faster than half the speed limit when it starts sprinkling.

Ha! My "Twilight" crazy daughter was asking why we can't move to the Pacific Northwest - now I have a reason better than mom hates rain!

I think it's Federal laws regarding not keeping the purchase information on file, but as far as registration goes I think that might be the state? I'm not sure, I get so mixed up on who regulates what!
