Why The Gun Industry Secretly Loves Obama

Rick Perry’s emergence as the front runner for the Republican Presidential nomination would seem like a coup for the gun industry. The Texas governor’s enthusiasm for firearms rivals Yosemite Sam’s. He has an A+ rating from the Texas State Rifle Association and packs a laser-sighted Ruger pistol when he jogs. Last year, he famously shot a coyote that threatened his dog during a run.

To commemorate his act of valor, the manufacturer, Sturm, Ruger & Co., produced a lightweight, limited-edition “Coyote Special” with the words “A True Texan” emblazoned on the barrel. Collectors snapped them up. Perry would be as ardent a champion of gun rights as has ever occupied the White House.

There are aprox. 60 million gun owners in the USA, just imagine if every one of them joined the NRA! Talk about a voice that Washington would listen too! If we could just get them to take a day off work and March on Washington to let all of our Government officials know that, “Were mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore”! We are going to take our country back, “For the people, by the people”, no more left wing crap, stop foreign aid, expel all Muslims, bomb the hell out of the sand ni&&ers and take the oil! Jail employers that hire illegal’s, reward folks for turning in illegal aliens. Make America great again, for real Americans!
