Barack Obama, Greatest Gun Salesman in History

“Citizens, turn in your weapons”
James Porter, the incoming NRA president, said Obama's gun control efforts have created
a "political spontaneous combustion" that has prompted millions of Americans to become first-time gun owners and created a national outrage that will manifest itself in next year's midterm elections.... LaPierre said the NRA now has a record 5 million members, but he urged for increased membership and added that it "must be 10 million strong" in its battle against gun control. -- - ABC News

Your Say

I have a friend and former colleague who moved to the U.S. with his family from the former U.S.S.R. in 1993. He and spouse became U.S. citizens on 9/11/02.

Despite his experience growing up in the U.S.S.R., surviving the collapse, and his choice to emigrate, his politics have always seemed inexplicably socialist to me. Despite that, we have always found ways to synthesize our ostensibly incompatible ideals into policies that made sense to both of us. Maybe it's because we treat the issues as engineering problems where human behavior and governing policy are the software, and people/society/infrastructure are the hardware.

Two years ago - to my complete amazement - he bought an AR and taught himself how to reload ammo.

One data point is worth 1000 words.

Is it my imagination, or does the commie soldier in the poster look drunk? Socialist Realism, I guess.
