Picture of the Day


Believe it or not, this picture isn’t some political statement or wingnut rant. I just think it’s kinda funny how the NRA has gone into fundraising overdrive. Today I got a mail-out telling me that I had to “ACT NOW to STOP the most sweeping GUN BAN in American history.”

(Yes, I’m an NRA member*, and yes, the mailing really had uppercase and underline. That’s an exact typographical quote. I just thought it was funny… and a bit shrill. But I digress.)

Now, I realize that Obama is a Democrat, and Democrats are Liberal Swine™ who routinely trample on the Second Amendment, but… Wait, that can’t be right. I mean, a substantial number of gun owners are Democrats. So Democrats aren’t the problem.

Okay then, who is the problem? The Coastal Elites—that’s East Coast Yankees and Califuckwits to you and me. They’re doubleplusgood idealists, gun-grabbing do-gooders who think that making guns illegal will actually stop the criminals from using them. ’Cause everybody knows that criminals obey the law, right?

On a side note, my guns aren’t any more dangerous than your average Precious Moments figurine. I’m the most dangerous thing in my house, armed or not. I can think of more ways to hurt someone without using a gun. But again, I digress.

Then why today’s pic and non-rant? Oh, I just thought the pic was funny. (It’s true, by the way. Gun sales skyrocketed the day after The Obamanator won the election.) Throw in the NRA’s shrill message and over-the-top typography and you have the perfect POD commentary.

So relax, all you wingnuts. Obama isn’t going to take your guns. And when AG Holder made the mistake of mentioning the Assault Weapons Ban, 65 freakin’ pro-gun Democrats wrote an open letter opposing it.

Then again, scare tactics make for great fundraising. During the Bush years the lefty moonbats did it all the time for Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, etc. (See footnote.)

In the meantime, don’t we have bigger problems to worry about? I mean, sure, I don’t want the Coastal Elites Fuckwits to ban anything, much less my next purchase (a Rock River Coyote, in case you were wondering). But until the economy picks up, I think Obama has bigger “problems” than how to trample the Second Amendment.

And that’s why I’m not worried about “the most sweeping GUN BAN in American history.” Feh.

Anyway, that’s probably enough politicking. The picture is funny enough on its own. I just thought I’d add my 12¢ (adjusted for stimulus inflation).
