Barack "Barry" Osama has gone and done it now. He actually said it. The Big Lie that every gun grabber has to say sooner or later because if they don't say it, they know their careers are over:
"If you want to go hunt, go hunt. Nobody is trying to take your shotgun or rifle away . . ."
. . . except Barack Obama, who has publicly called for a ban on semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, as well as handguns for good measure. But why let the truth get in the way of a good sound bite?
Well, and there's also Diane Feinstein, who famously said that if she could get the votes for, in her words, a law stating "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in" she would do it.
And in Illinois, Dan Kotowski, the Reverend James Meeks, Dan Cullerton, Antonio Munoz, Kwame Raoul . . . . the list is too long, but all these people are sponsoring legislation to take away what they mislabel "assault weapons"--just about all of which are rifles and shotguns.
And then there are people like Pete Shields and Sarah Brady of the Brady Campaign, formerly called "Handgun Control Incorporated," who have both called for widespread bans and now claim they don't want to take anyone's guns because that's just too extreme and radical.
Am I supposed to be fooled by this?
Well, we know the answer to that, don't we? I'm NOT supposed to be fooled. Obama supposes that most people who own guns are uneducated rednecks who wear polyester pants, don't live in mansions, and like to get drunk and shoot animals for fun. That's why he kindly gives us permission to go hunting.
Listen, I love hunting. In a few years, there will be four generations of my family in the field during deer season. Four! It's a big deal to us. That said, I would gladly give up hunting for life if these grinning liars would stop telling me how much they respect hunting.
