Hm. Barack Obama, Stealth Freedomista?

Naw. More like Barack Obama, really incompetent totalitarian. But still, you could kind of make the case. If he were trying to spread gun rights in the face of leftist opposition, what would he do differently?

Got to thinking about this while reading Tam

By any metric you care to use, the Obama years have been salad days for American gun culture. CCW permits exploded, gun sales keep spiking, multiple states have gone to Constitutional Carry, the number of FFLs has increased by 25%…

That’s a hell of a legacy.

Of course more guns don’t really equal more freedom, he’s been awful on internal surveillance and we’ve got that Obamacare thing to thank him for good and hard. But sometimes when you’re trying to make a point, reductio ad absurdum is the way to go. Y’know? I mean, who doesn’t believe this bathroom edicts nonsense will make for years of entertaining courtroom drama? Whacky fun…

No … I don’t really believe that either.

    I thought it was a funny twist on the “Thanks, Obama!” meme. 😀

    Obama is like any other politician. Göring said:

    Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.

    This is the way Obama acts only this time the target is the law abiding gun owners.

To the stake with the heretic!
