Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said during a speech Friday that President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies would ban guns and ammunition if they could get away with it.The former Alaska governor said in a speech to the National Rifle Association that political backlash is the only thing stopping Obama from gutting the Constitution’s right to bear arms. Palin said the public needs to stop Democrats in their tracks, starting with the November elections. Palin praised the anti-tax tea party movement as a grassroots effort “to get government back on our side.” She left the event to travel to South Carolina for a campaign rally with a Republican candidate for governor who is popular with tea party activists.Addressing an anti-abortion group, the potential 2012 presidential candidate said she understood how some women might consider abortion, citing her own experiences as the mother of a child with Down syndrome and the parent of an unwed teen mother. Last year, Palin said that “for a fleeting moment” she considered having an abortion when she learned of her son Trig’s prognosis.
Palin said Friday that abortion is morally wrong and women should carry a fetus to term.
“It may not be the easiest path, but it’s always the right path,” she said.
Lady, you’re my kind of candidate!
