Camouflage Christmas

Check this article out!

MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – When 10-year-old Austin Smith heard Barack Obama had been elected president, he had one question: Does this mean I won't get a new gun for Christmas?

That brought his mother, the camouflage-clad Rachel Smith, to Bob Moates Sports Shop on Thursday, where she was picking out that special 20-gauge shotgun — one of at least five weapons she plans to buy before Obama takes office in January.

Like Smith, gun enthusiasts nationwide are stocking up on firearms out of fears that the combination of an Obama administration and a Democrat-dominated Congress will result in tough new gun laws.

"I think they're going to really try to crack down on guns and make it harder for people to try to purchase them," said Smith, 32, who taught all five of her children — ages 4 to 10 — to shoot because the family relies on game for food.

There are a few ways to look at this I guess. Hey, just like he promised he is stimulating the economy even before he takes office. The other way to look at this is, I hope the secret service has an arsenal on hand to protect our nations first black President. I don't know if you noticed or not, but the places where more guns are sold are also the states that didn't vote for Obama.
Obama will have the secret service. That means like most black people in D.C. he will be constantly surrounded by white guys with guns.
Comforting?

OK. Who, in 2008, relies entirely on hunting for their food? What white trash little boy asks for a "new" gun for Christmas? What do the parents teach these kids?
"Mama. Whats Christmas all about?"
"Jesus was born into the world! We rejoice at his message of love and peace for all mankind!"
"Can I have a machine that is designed for the sole purpose of killing?"
"Of course you can, Baby!"
I don't remember, did any of the wise men bring ammo as a gift?

The oldest kid in this article is 10 and she is buying guns for all of them? Yeah. That seems a lot safer than letting gay people take the same 50 50 shot at marriage as any of those little white trash rug rats will have when they grow up. That is, if they make it through another camouflage Christmas without incident.
I would hate to be Santa coming down the chimney of that house!
House.
Ha! I mean trailer.

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that "myrrh" comes from the same Aramaic root word meaning "banana clip"

Obama's got enough worries figuring out how to make banks give loans so the gun shops can stay open. Relax, Mrs. Smith.

I imagine sales of white sheets have also gone through the roof since his win. Its going to be a fun four years watching America sort itself out around race and class.

As a related note to your comments on kids with guns...

I was quite saddened and then befuddled to read approximately a week ago a story on Yahoo about a kid whose folks took him to a gun show and allowed him to fire an automatic weapon. The kid, not being used to the recoil of the weapon, lost control of it and it turned back on him, killing him.

In the story, it said that yes, it was supposed to be supervised by someone who is supposed to make sure the kids are handling the guns safely. I don't really care what they say...is it ever a good idea to give a child a gun, much less most adults?

Unfortunately, while a bit crude and obviously a bit sarcastic...I feel your "corn and retards" line might have a little more truth to it than I wish to believe.

BT,
It is sad when a kid dies from something so preventable as a gun shot while the parents stood a few feet away.
Americans have the same kind of relationship with guns that we have with cars and fast food; we know it is not a very healthy one because we make excuse after excuse why these things must be every where no matter what the cost.
On a radio show I heard a hillbilly call in and say that owning a gun was a "God given right!"
Funny, I don't remember reading that any where in the Bible.
I do remember, Thou shall not kill.
People also fail to keep in mind that when the second amendment was written, a gun was little more than a musket. I doubt the Founding Fathers envisioned an AK-47. There is protecting yourself and then there is dealing with your little dick.
