At some point between Barack Obama declaring his candidacy for president and…now (?), gun owners across the country went insane. Sites like Gun Ban Barack Obama launched, and the specter of Obama creeping into houses under the cover of dark to take people’s guns prompted an unprecedented surge in firearm purchases.
It was all a bit strange at the time considering Obama never really talked about gun control and never during his time in the Senate introduced legislation that affected weapons — in any way.
Now a year later, the country’s leading gun control group issued its grade for Obama’s first year in office: F.
President Barack Obama on Monday received a failing grade from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence for running away from gun control.
The group, which endorsed Obama in 2008, gave him an “F” on every issue it scored, including background checks, gun trafficking, guns in public, the federal assault weapons ban, standing up to the gun lobby and leadership.
“It’s been a very disappointing year for us, especially considering what he campaigned on,” the group’s president, Paul Helmke, said during an appearance on MSNBC.
Good thing you bought those guns, though, crazy people! Keep fighting those red herrings wherever you see them. Keep fighting “Socialism” and “Naziism.” Stay vigilant because Obama’s real goal is taking over all private enterprise, and whatever you do, don’t stop looking for Barack Obama’s birth certificate! At some point, we’ll certainly get our country back.
