“On the other side of the aisle, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, campaigning in Idaho over the weekend said “there are people who say, `Well, he doesn’t believe in the Second Amendment,’ even though I come from a state — we’ve got a lot of hunters in downstate Illinois. And I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns.”
In 1996, however, Obama said in a questionnaire that he “supported banning the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns” — a fairly extreme position.
“Well he has to speak to his own record, which has obviously changed over a relatively short period of time,” shot Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.
HOWEVER, it should be pointed out that this appears to be yet another example of Obama not being able to get good help.
You guessed it — his campaign says this questionnaire was filled out incorrectly by a staffer. (Read more on that HERE.)
