Well, it’s almost the second Tuesday of November, isn’t it? That means that we’re all reading up right now on all the political stances of our presidential candidates, including the incumbent candidate, President Obama. While we have had four years of Obama to get to know him, some of you may not be fully aware of where he stands on firearm policy. As such, we thought we’d do our small part and help you understand the Obama/Biden Gun Stance to help you make a good decision as you’re considering the future of our country.
