Gun control activists call for stricter gun control legislation that would prevent assault weapons from getting into the hands of criminals. Paranoid gun loving fanatics , vehemently oppose such legislation , claiming that criminals will get them anyway , and claiming that any gun control is an infringement of their second amendment rights. It would seem that they care more about their guns than saving the lives of others from gun violence. After a shooting takes place , in typical fashion , gun fanatics often blame the victims for not being armed , the mentally ill , liberals , or Obama … anyone and everything but the shooter. They repeat the same nonsense that gun free zones attract gun violence , and that more guns are the solution.
Jan Morgan is a typical Tea Party paranoid gun loving patriot. She represents thousands of paranoid gun fanatics all across America who share an unhealthy obsession with firearms , and who view themselves as “true patriots” for their fanatical love of guns , and their intense hatred of liberals , progressives , Barack Obama , and anyone who doesn’t subscribe to their radical views on guns. She is a gun range owner and a self professed second amendment expert. Recently she sparked a bit of a controversy when she announced that her business was Muslim free , vowing to refuse weapons training to “the next potential Muslim terrorist” , but obviously not too concerned about the possibility of training a non Muslim terrorist. At a 2013 Gun Appreciation Day rally , she proudly – and falsely – pronounced that ninety million gun owners with over three hundred million guns , killed no one the previous year … conveniently ignoring the fact that events like Sandy Hook , and the Aurora Colorado theatre shootings , were carried out by gun owners , whether they were sane or not.
She’s written a book – Hands Off My Guns! How Obama And Liberals Are Destroying The Second Amendment God Given Rights Of Patriotic Gun Loving Americans – bashing liberals and Obama for taking her guns away , even though Obama has shown no indication of coming close to doing so.
“My book is a sequel to Dana Leoschs’ book , Hands Off My Guns Obummer!” She told Rachel Maddow. “Dana asked me recently if I would like to do a sequel to her book , and since she and I are so much alike – we both love our guns , you know , so much that we would rather die than let the communist leftist liberals and Obama get their hands on them – I told her I would be thrilled to help her write a sequel. We both know how important it is to get the word out that the communist liberals and Obama can’t wait to take our guns away. They’re just itching for Obama to use executive action. And since the Oregon State University shooting , we knew the book would be especially important since Obama’s remarks about the shooting were so unbelievably appalling , which obviously is to be expected since he’s a Muslim lover.”
Rachel : “What do you mean , appalling?”
Jan : “When he said the deaths of the students were routine , trivial , as if they meant nothing to him.”
Rachel : “I don’t think that’s what he was talking about , Jan. Correct me if I’m wrong , but I believe he was saying that every time something like this happens , Americans and especially the media have become numb to it. We’re used to reporting it because it happens so often , but feel helpless to do anything about it , or don’t really want to do anything about it , because so many in congress – the majority of them republicans – have been bought off by the NRA and gun manufacturers – and those of us in the media are afraid we’re going to offend gun owners if we speak out , and that’s exactly what happens. Liberals and president Obama call for stricter gun laws , and the NRA and many of their members feel like it’s a personal attack on them , and I don’t think that’s the case.
Jan : “You’re wrong. Obama is the worst president in American history , and he’s proved it ever since he set foot in the White House. The deficit is way up , spending is way up , unemployment is sky high , five times higher than when George Bush was in office , and the national debt is at an all time high. The economy is in a complete shambles. Plus , he has pledged his undying support of Muslim , and gay jihadists , he’s unlawfully persecuting Christians by supporting gay rights , denying Christians their religious freedom not to serve homosexuals. And now he wants to rewrite the second amendment to suit his socialist agenda , which to take guns away from all of us law abiding patriotic Americans , and throw us all into Wal -Mart stores that have been converted into Fema prison camps. What does he expect us to do? Save more and live better at your friendly Wal-Mart Fema store?”
Rachel : “Wow , Jan. I fail to see what most of that has to do with what I previously said , but anyway , those are just your opinions and they are highly debatable.”
“It’s the truth and you know it.”
“Whatever , Jan.”
