The Candidates on Gun Control

This of course may or may not be a moot point by the time of the election due to the Supreme Court case coming up regarding this later in the month but there are their positions anyway:

Hillary:

Supports tough gun control laws.
Supports licensing and registering all handgun sales.
Voted No to prohibit lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

Personally, if you don't already know this, I am okay with the licensing and registration of handgun sales but I do not support lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

Obama:

Voted No to prohibit lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
Supports banning semi-automatic weapons.
Cosponsorted a bill to limit handgun purchases to 1 a month.
Support a national law against carrying concealed weapons.

McCain:

Opposes restrictions on semiautomatics.
Supports requiring safety locks at gun shows.
Voted Yes to prohibit lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
Supports legislation requiring background checks at gun shows.
