Obama Ducks And Weaves on 2A In Last Week's Debate

I missed this part of last week's debate between rival democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Apparently, Sen. Obama was ducking and weaving to avoid talking about his position on the DC handgun case -- Heller.

Various politicos have some observations on this. Some of it here, and more here. Interestingly, last fall he told reporters he felt the existing ban on handguns in the District of Columbia was constitutional. He would not use those words during last week's debate.

Ostensibly so he would not offend Pennsylvania voters, many of whom are staunch supporters of an individual right to keep and bear arms.
