Barack Obama won't take away your guns, not without the votes to do so

Whoops. But still this is campaign is freaking sweet.

“If you’ve got a gun in your house, I’m not taking it,’’ Obama said. But the Illinois senator could still see skeptics in the crowd, particularly on the faces of several men at the back of the room.

So he tried again. “Even if I want to take them away, I don’t have the votes in Congress,’’ he said. “This can’t be the reason not to vote for me. Can everyone hear me in the back? I see a couple of sportsmen back there. I’m not going to take away your guns.’’

Those skeptics in the back of the room are just the skeptics that could FIT into the room.
