Why gun owners are running scared [while their wives visit male strippers]
Gazette Extra ^ | 11-25-08 | JOEL MCNALLY

Posted on 11/25/2008 6:01:32 PM PST by SJackson

When deer hunting season opens this weekend, Wisconsin’s poor deer hunters are going to be at even more of a disadvantage than usual in their annual attempt to match wits with highly intelligent animals.

This year, deer hunters are going to be burdened by carrying heaping armloads of guns into the woods with them.

Deer hunters and other gun lovers have been absolutely terrified ever since Nov. 4 that President-elect Barack Obama is going to swoop down on their homes and confiscate all their guns.

In a panic, thousands of gun owners have raced to their nearest gun dealers to stock up on handguns, semi-automatic assault weapons and enough ammo to level the entire state of Wisconsin.

One gun dealer called Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden “the most anti-gun people ever to be in the White House.”

Golly, you’d think the late President Lincoln would have been pretty anti-gun. Certainly, his widow sitting next to him at the theater wasn’t a real big fan.

In the first two weeks of November, gun sales and background checks nearly doubled in Wisconsin compared with the same period a year earlier when scary Democrats weren’t being elected. What comes through from these stories is just the opposite of the image gun owners want to project—that they are tough guys ready to shoot it out with any wild thing—man or beast—who crosses their path.

Instead, it turns out gun owners are big scaredy cats.

A majority of us were dancing in the streets celebrating a historic new direction for our country after pointless war abroad and economic disaster at home. But, for gun owners, their first thought was heart-pounding terror that they might not have enough guns and ammo to fend off all the demons that keep them awake at night.

It sort of proves the point Obama once made in an off-hand remark when he said small-town people who feel powerless in our country “cling” to their guns. The National Rifle Association itself was the first to celebrate the clinging phenomenon in a famous bumper sticker about prying guns from “cold, dead fingers.”

If you live in constant fear that someone is going to take all your guns away, you aren’t going to be foolish enough to leave any of them at home when you go up north to hunt deer this year, are you? That’s just what Barack Obama and Joe Biden want you to do.

While your wives are out getting drunk and tucking dollar bills into the g-strings of Chippendales, the Democrats are going to sneak in and clean out your entire arsenals. Gun owners still wake up trembling with fear, remembering the 10 horrible years after 1994 when semiautomatic assault weapons were banned in this country. Not only were assault weapons banned, but so were pistol grips, flash suppressors and bayonet mounts that could be used to convert hunting rifles into military assault weapons.

For 10 long years, gun owners lived in constant fear that godless hordes would attack their homes and get in close enough for hand-to-hand combat at a time when law-biding citizens were forbidden to buy bayonet mounts. President George Bush allowed the ban to expire in 2004 so Vice President Dick Cheney and other hunters in America would once again have the freedom to use any weapons they wanted to shoot their friends.

Actually, President-elect Obama, like most other Democrats, has always proclaimed his support for the Second Amendment and the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to buy, own and use guns. But the gun lobby considers any politician an enemy unless he supports arming every American, drunk or sober, sane or insane. Let the chips—and the bodies—fall where they may.

That’s why really cautious deer hunters are going to be lugging every weapon they can carry into the woods with them. We hope no one drops one on his foot. We wouldn’t want anyone to get hurt by a gun.

Classic progressive view of apelike gunowners.

Finally, we've reached the time of The One.

His wife has taut arms, she doesn't need to tuck dollar bills in the waistband of male strippers.

Lots of folk here know Joel, some don't, but on behalf of my wife, who is not a drunk, Joel, you're an *sshole

They have every reason to be concerned. Oboma can't create his own "civilian" police state and forced labor "service" camps while Americans are still armed.

Oboma thinks like Joesph Stalin, so can blame them?

The left is full of hateful people like this. They're still stuck at the bottom of Maslows Hierarchy, and this is how they express their inner rage.
They try to force others to feel their pain, because they have to live with it on a daily bases.
They feel if they can make everyone else miserable, they'll feel better about themselves. They think it'll make life more "fair."

He says that like it's a bad thing. Although I don't feel the need to level Wisconsin, other opportunities may present themselves.

I'm willing to bet Joel couldn't shoot a slingshot straight to its target, much less a gun.

Mocking gun owners is Part 1 of the One's Agenda. This little comrade is just falling in line with the program. When the day comes that Joel will need a gun, he won't have it. Tough luck Joel your karma is coming when your gun-toting neighbor will remember this mocking piece of trash and makes a decision not to shoot to save your sorry life.

Honest Abe and the 2nd Amendment, nothing rings a bell, but knowing FR, someone may turn up with some information.

It is a fact that he accepted a gold plated Henry lever action. I'm sure he wouldn't had he not felt it was a citizens right to own the most advanced military weapon. Without the gold plating, of course. Other than bailout beneficiaries.

Given their tendency to plow into the side of moving vehicles in mating season, I'd say that they aren't all that bright. Now, if they were torpedoes and cars were enemy carriers, they'd be quite useful as "intelligent weapons". But as it stands now, they are most useful as food.
