Obama's Job Application,Questions on Gun OwnershipSubmitted by JeffD on Fri, 11/14/2008 - 22:06
NEWTOWN, Conn., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If you want a job in the Obama administration and you own a gun, you may be out of luck. Here is Question #59 on the application:
"Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage."
The tone of the question aside, it implies that we have national gun registration, which is, of course, not (yet) true.
"The question demonstrates that this administration does not truly respect the Second Amendment," said Lawrence G. Keane, Senior Vice President and General Counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation. "It seems the message is 'Gun Owners Need Not Apply.'"
A total of 63 detailed -- some might say intrusive -- questions delve into the professional and personal lives and backgrounds of the applicants, their spouses and other family members. After reading the questionnaire, one TV pundit wondered if anybody in Washington could qualify.
