OK, it is short notice, but I just found out about it today. Write a fable blog post and submit it by tonight.
Don’t know if you get the NRA newsletter, but they included a PDF of President Obama’s “Plan to Stimulate Urban Prosperity” page in the last email. It was the google cache for Nov 7.
In the Crime and Law Enforcement section, between “End the Dangerous Cycle of Youth Violence:”and “End Racial Proï¬ling” was this section on guns.
Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police oï¬ƒcers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and ï¬ght the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn’t have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battleï¬elds and not on our streets.
He has taken down his detailed agenda from the change.gov site now, but it is still available in PDF form on his campaign page.

I bought an AR-15 last Wednesday. I named it Barack. It is sweet. Pictures to come.
