If that were the case I'd get no exercise at all! :lolhammer:
Btw, guns are nothing like signs.
A sign will deliver a clear message, a gun is a message open to interpretation.
Okay then what was that whole Obama as the Joker with the socialism thing saying? Cause dude they totally lost me there!
Just saying a sign can be as open to interpertation as anything else. Diffferent strokes for diffrent folks. Thats why it's good to be an American. You have 1st amendment right to express your opnions on the 2nd amendment!
Note: What the guy had at the demonstration, is NOT an assault rifle.
"Assault rifle" has a specific, technical definition: It's a light-weight, selective-fire (semi or full auto), magazine-fed rifle that fires an intermediate-power cartridge.
That AR15, being semi-only, is not an assault rifle.
Let's make sure we know we're talking about, here.
How dare you bring logic and definitions in here and ruin a perfectly propagandizing article!! Christ people like you are what is standing between the meek(read unemployed, lazy, shiftless, anti-american, socialistic retards) from inheriting the earth. Where do you get off??
First, I think it's awesome that people are exercising their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
However- doing so at a Presidential rally is pretty stupid in my opinion. The attention they have brought will likely bring about legislation (Federal?) further restricting our gun rights.
You have to weigh the good vs. bad before you act.
I always thought that attempted assassination of the President of these United States was an act of treason. And that a traitor gave up his rights (upon conviction and appeals) as a US Citizen.
Apparently not- Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme (Charles Manson Family) was just released from prison Aug. 14th. She was convicted for attempting to assassinate the President with a pistol that didn't go off when she pulled the trigger.
The people (there were several) carrying coordinated with the PD and USSC the night before. There were officers there, in case one was a loon (usually, only leftists are loons - Lee Harvey Oswald is the classic example). They all were several blocks away from the president.
BTW, just what is the Constitutional authority for the USSC to block traffic and impede citizens in their (civil rights protected) activities?
A friendly reminder that this thread is walking a fine line of the slippery slope kind. Remember the Golden Rule. Thanks.
Out of interest, which part of the article can you consider propaganda? Calling the AR15 an assault rifle is a standard, if incorrect, description of it and to label the article propaganda for a simple error on fact checking is extreme.
Its an extremely balanced article that would have been more balanced if the NRA had decided to do their job and returned their calls for comment.
Let's take a look at the sources of all the most controversial protest displays:
Obama as The Joker: created by Firas Alkhateer. A palestian democrat from Chicago who supports Dennis Kucinich.
Obama as Hitler: created by LarouchPAC.com (read the bottom of the posters). LaRouch is a seven times candidate for the democratic presidential nomination.
Handgun carrying protester: William Kostric, a libertarian Ron Paul voter who castigates both parties at the start of his Chris Matthews interview.
"Racist" AR15 carrying protester: "Chris", a black libertarian.
It's shameful how far the media is going to "miss" these facts in their effort to portray the "extremists" as republican plants at the protests. How do you use video that includes the LarouchPAC.com posters at the same time you are saying it's the republicans behind it? Even worse is using cropped video of a black man with an AR15 to try to prtray second amendment supporters as a buch of racists out to kill the president.
every year influenza affects much of the U.S. it is prevalent, and yet we continue to fight it.
although propaganda is wide spread, it is still propaganda, and it should still be labeled as such, and acknowledged as wrong
I was exaggerating the authors ignorance of the definition of an assault rifle to cover the entire article just to be a smart . You are correct that article was actually a balanced piece considering the controversy surrounding the subject. BUT difference between an AR-15 and an "assault rifle" is night and day, 3fgburber actually hit it right on the head with a correct definition.
I heard tell he was strapped with a Klingon de-stabilizer and therefore an evil kinda alien type guy.....
Well, actually I jest, I read about it and I know the President is covered pretty well, so there's no real threat from small arms fire. I just worry that one of those lovely lock-step union-ites might think of pulling a cute one and causing a fire fight or staging one. That would not be good press, since most people think the press is still a watchdog and not biased at all.
I'm sympathetic with that view. But you know the Secret Service will jump on anyone who does something
like that, and the media will have a field day.
Was it a good PR stunt? Will the intended message get across?
Time will tell.
White House Backs Right to Arms Outside Obama Events
...Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local laws allow it. "There are laws that govern firearms that are done state or locally," he said. "Those laws don't change when the president comes to your state or locality."
I wonder why katie couric didn't get the message. She described the man with the AR-15 as a white man, and he is clearly not Caucasian. I believe his last name is Gallegos, and he's fairly dark for a white man, but I guess even the best of us make mistakes from time to time.
There were two people with AR15s.
To show i have said this before:
Second reminder: Play nice, be civil, or avoid posting in the thread.
