Obama's new web site

From Obama's new web site: http://www.change.gov
Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.
1. Repeal Tiahrt, 2. Those pesky locks required, 3. Eliminate Face to Face sales, 4. Make the expired AWB permanent (and proabally on steroids).

Sounds like the NRA will be working harder than ever... Hope everyone supports them.

I read that as "repeal the Tenth Amendment" at first and wondered why bother when SCOTUS doesn't know it exists.
