FLASHBACK: Obama: I Will NOT Take Your Guns Away

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | December 28, 2012 | 10:39am EST

At a campaign event in Lebanon, Virginia in 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama said that he will not take Americans' guns away.

"When you all go home and you're talking to your buddies and you say, ah 'He wants to take my gun away.'  You've heard it here,  I'm on television so everybody knows it.  I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people's lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away."
