Armed Idiots

Not that this will come as news to any of you, but gun nuts are a bunch of dolts. They're so gripped by the nonexistent threat that Obama will take their guns away that they're overbuying ammunition, with the result that there's a shortage, and thousands of people can't get ammo for their guns. Which means, in practical terms, they'd be doing Obama's job for him, if he had any interest in getting rid of guns, which he doesn't. Fucking stooges.

Here's my favorite part of the article:

Jason Gregory, who manages Gretna Gun Works just outside of New Orleans, has been building his personal supply of ammunition for months. His goal is to have at least 1,000 rounds for each of his 25 weapons. "I call it the Obama effect," said Gregory, 37, of Terrytown, La. "It always happens when the Democrats get in office. It happened with Clinton and Obama is even stronger for gun control. Ammunition will be the first step, so I'm stocking up while I can."


1. What in God's name would you need 25,000 rounds of ammo for?

2. If it's something that's always happened wit Democrats in office, why does he call it the Obama effect? Did he call it the Obama effect when Clinton was president?

3. Why would ammunition be the first step?

4. Best of all, this guy sounds like he lived through the Clinton administration, and so he presumably remembers that there were no gun bans during that entire eight years. And he's around for Obama, so he presumably knows that Obama hasn't banned guns either. So all he's really saying here is "I'm so dumb that every eight to ten years, I waste a bunch of money stocking up on ammo, even though I know that nothing's going to happen." I mean, if he lived through Clinton, he's probably still got all the ammo he stockpiled then in his shed, since Clinton didn't take away anyone's ammunition.

What a bunch of fucking chumps. Small wonder I'm pretty much constantly embarrassed to be a gun owner.
