Owning A Gun

With the gun deer season opening tomorrow in Wisconsin, I had to post about this, and ask my self the same question, why?

Fine, Obama is going to be our next president, and no, he is not who I voted for. We are a republican town up here, we do own guns, and we do use guns to hunt, as we also eat the that food we hunt for. So, please tell me why in all the questions, what does it matter if someone owns a gun?

But even some Democrats and transition experts are baffled by the inclusion of the question.

Tucked in at the end of the questionnaire and listed under “Miscellaneous,” it reads: “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.” …

It’s just one question on a lengthy personnel form — No. 59 on a 63-question list — but the furor over the query is a vivid reminder of the intensity of support for Second Amendment rights and signals the scrutiny Obama is likely to receive from the ever-vigilant gun lobby.

Obama’s transition team declined to go into detail on why they included the question, suggesting only that it was done to ensure potential appointees were in line with gun laws.
