Obama Disrespects the 2nd Amendment, AGAIN

It's official, Holder confirmed that Obama wants to ban the manufacture of perfectly normal magazine fed mid powered semi automatic rifles that happen to have an adjustable length stock (great for sharing a single rifle among multiple family members) and a barrel shroud (which protects the rifle holder from burning themselves on the hot rifle barrel), a pistol grip (great for hanging on to your rifle), or a bayonet lug. So much for Obama's lame promise to "respect the 2nd Amendment," not that I ever believed him for a second.

What do Obama & Holder have against barrel shrouds? Does Obama own stock in an Aloe Vera burn cream company or something? What is so wrong with having an adjustable stock? Does he prefer me to have one rifle for every member of the family, each sized specifically for arm length? What exactly is wrong with a bayonet lug? Has there been a surge in drive by bayonet stabbings that I'm unaware of?

Talk about lame. More from Uncle.

the idea is to basically ban a few small thing at a time and then people won't raise such a big fuss. If you throw a frog into boiling water it will jump out, but if you throw a frog into cool water and heat it up, by the time it realizes it is in trouble it is too late.

Exactly. Let us not act like frogs. Let us work together to jump out the second they throw us in, or even better, we'll just shoot anyone who attempts to throw us into a pot of water, cold or hot. :)

We must all hang together so that we won't hang separately. :)

Indeed. You knew it was coming. Gun control is not about guns, it's about control. Bumper sticker wisdom though it be, it's truth.
