In the upcoming presidential election, much about American life will be discussed. What may not be is something perhaps many will not consider when they vote. That is gun control.

Despite the terrible misuse of guns for mass murders recently, millions depend on guns for personal protection. Many, the elderly for example, would be completely defenseless without a gun. Since Obama is on record as saying Americans “cling” to guns, we can certainly guess what he might do if not facing re-election. Why wouldn’t he simply issue a presidential directive outlawing private gun ownership? Don’t bet your life he wouldn’t and couldn’t – because your life just may be exactly what you’re betting!
