Wouldn’t it be easier to just act conservative during your term than puss out to the tyrants 24/7/365, then try some fake, gimmicky ploy to make it all better at the end?

The Senate minority leader is in an odd spot at the annual conservative conference.

Since he's not actually a conservative, but just another crony-fascist bellying-up to the feral government trough.

“...Wouldn’t it be easier to just act conservative...”

One would think so.... however, career politicians are very smooth and adept at ACTING one way, and BEING another way.

A muzzleloader, while it IS a rifle and part of our heritage, makes NO statement whatsoever.

Show up with an American-made AR15 - THE Homeland Defense Rifle of OUR day, and you make a HUGE statement of where you stand, and what you believe.

While I appreciate the gesture, that’s all it appears to be - a gesture.

“You can put lipstick on a pig...”

What a moron. I would have had more respect for him had he shown up with a well worn Sig 220 on his hip.

As it is, poser is posing... but not fooling anyone.

RE Heston:

Yes, because he had the guts to become the NRA president and take the flak, fury, and psychosis of the leftards.

In some states, you are correct. It’s not considered a firearm.

In a state like NJ, however, it’s STILL evil! But so is a BB gun.

Too bad he forgot the red rubber nose, size-15 floppy shoes and the flower boutonniere that squirts water. He must have been rushed for time.

Under FEDERAL LAW, it is not considered a firearm.

Some states, of course, have their heads up their butts.

CPAC 2014 is being held in the Glorious Peoples’ Democratic Republic of Maryland (Why?) ... even that benighted domain does not subject the trade in muzzleloaders to any restrictions not imposed by Fedzilla.

“... held in Maryland...”

All the more reason he should have shown up with an AR15 and drum mag. It would have made THE statement of statements.

But spinelessness is a symptom of the species “RINOSITIS Termlimititus”.

I’m not certain what model of muzzle loader that is/was but I don’t think it was a rifle.

Even sadder when you stop to consider that people WOULD follow and back him up if he actually remembered he had a spine, a pair of onions, and acted like an American MAN should in the face of the all-out assault we’re undergoing.

I guess asking our elected hired help to actually DO their jobs though is another one of those old-fashioned notions - you know, like Duty, Honor, Courage, Integrity, Fidelity, Patriotism...

Can’t have any of THAT anymore now, can we... why, people might actually start to remember they have Rights, if so.

It looks like a “Hawken” style, such as is available from Traditions, Pedersoli, Thompson-Center or a variety of other manufacturers. It’s definitely a rifle.

Hey Mitch: Bring an AR15 with a drum mag, and maybe I'd believe ya.

That’s pretty much my reaction.

My best reaction – great, he’s supporting the Commonsense civil right of Armed Self-defense [CASD]

My worst reaction: Oh Great, Mitch McConnell is reinforcing the old tired line about the 2nd amendment being about MUSKETS!

I recall the stupid cable show, “1000 Ways To Die”.

They had a short story of someone they called “Musket Mary”, a way-too-obvious parody of Sarah Palin, who shot and killed herself with a loaded muzzle-loader during a stump speech.

The comments on the video went over a thousand variations of the same sentence: “Republicans must DIIIEEE!!!”

They no longer hide it or rephrase it, and they dare you to call them on it.

They Want You Dead.

“...but I don’t think it was a rifle...”

Well, it appears to be a percussion lockplate, rather than a flintlock - I blew up the picture as much as it will go before it pixelates and distorts. I don’t see the frizzen or flash pan on it.

It looks a bit like one of my Hawken rifles, but the barrel does not appear to be octagonal.

Either way... if he wanted to make a REAL statement - and grow his flagging political stature - he should have brought an American-made AR15 Homeland Defense Rifle.

No guts, no glory...

Agreed.

I would have rather he just stood up to Harry Reid at every opportunity.

In HIS position, the word “NO” - and the balls to back it up - is more powerful than a rifle.

Good point. Hence, the AR15.

“...They Want You Dead....”

“Wanting” it and “making it happen” are, unfortunately for THEM, two different things.

Like Mike Vanderbeough over at Sipsey Street Irregulars says... Don’t poke a wolverine in the balls if you don’t want your arm ripped off.

They are working up the courage to - or, rather, ready to have someone else - poke the wolverine.

“Old Turkey Neck” - that’s good!

Old Turkey Neck’s time to be tough is when he’s supposed to be going eyeball to eyeball with Old Prune Face Reid.

And he failed that.
