VIDEO: ‘I Believe in the Second Amendment’

The NRA asks: is this "gun owner" who doesn't know how to hold a rifle actually an actor?

Yeah, right. Via John Hinderaker of Power Line, and courtesy of the NRA, comes this counter-strike against the Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ transparently phony “gun control” ad. Naturally, this gang of criminals won’t answer the question:

What does this tell us about the dishonest Left? That there is no lie they will not tell, no misrepresentation they will not offer in their single-minded pursuit of power. Their breathtaking mendacity is no accident; it’s not only the means to their ends, it’s who and what they are. Shame on us if we fall for it.

So whenever a fascist Regressive proposes a power grab in the name of “common sense,” “reasonable restrictions ” or  ”the children,” call them on it — what part of “shall not be infringed” don’t they understand?

Good for NRA for exposing these frauds, and would that congressional Republicans could must enough testicular fortitude to do the same. But no, they’re too busy reaching across the aisle.

Let’s hope they fail.

****

I don't want to sound prejudiced, but that guy is too clean to be a real redneck. I mean, it looks like his little redneck costume has never been worn before. And there's a barn and little kids playing on a tire swing. It's straight out of The Waltons. Scripted? You bet.

In any event, who cares what a shotgun-totin' redneck thinks about gun control? Shotgun-totin' rednecks are not the problem.

The debate isn't about rural hunters and tin-can-plinkers. It's about everybody else - everybody who, for their own good reasons, might want to own a firearm.

Anybody who does not know the difference between a Free Citizen and a Slave hasn't read any world history and that person is the one who will fall for these silly and stupid adds put up by Liberal Progressive fools.

For me it was an obvious ruse. Not just for the improper finger-on-the-trigger posture but the whole "look like a redneck" ensemble. My first instinct was, as you say, that the guy is an actor and even if he WAS familiar with proper firearm safety, having the finger on the trigger scares the bejeebus out of the lefty kooks.

But the whole, pickup truck-bearded-flannel-shirt-wearing-rolled-bill-ball-cap sittin-on-the-tailgate bit.

Wonder if the national socialists know how many gun owners are suit-and-tie-wearing businessmen and other "professionals" and even doctors and such? Nope, the fact that they immediately targeted a stereotype (another clear signature by the left) gave it away that it had to be a bogus, scripted "endorsement" for gun control.

Goebbels would be proud.

Anyone heard why Napolitano is buying millions of rounds of hollow points, while the Executive and Legislative Branches are trying to disarm the populace?
Will Homeland Security come and detain me for asking about this?

They're option contracts to buy millions of rounds over the next five years, for training the thousands of federal LEO's under DHS. Most of the ammunition hasn't even been manufactured, much less delivered. The real controversy is FedGov locking in today's prices despite low official inflation.

I just thought it was to make them unavailable to everyone else. They can't ban em but they can make em hard to get if they keep the stores sold out.

Not exactly. The shortage is the result of several factors, but primarily the drastic upswing in firearm purchases and the hoarding response to threats of legislation or confiscation. The last is self perpetuating, people buy to ensure they have enough, creating an appearance of scarcity to the next purchaser. When the next lot is available, people buy even more under that influence. The manufacturers, who maintain a production plan to meet the expected need, are likely in the process of increasing their production runs, while also avoiding over investing into capital that won't be needed when the frenzy calms down.
