Hypocrisy of gun grabbers

I don't think that this guy was wrong in doing it. Like the article says, the timing may have been off. Still, this is a terrific opportunity to show the hypocrisy of gun control.

“Really? If my post was inappropriate talking about ‘crock pot control’ then where is the outrage from the left when they push for gun control after the Sandy Hook shooting? Im [sic] sorry if I exposed your double standard….Well, not really.”

I'd like to hear your thoughts. Do you think the timing was off on this or was it a good opportunity? I thought it was funny as well. It showed the ridiculous nature of labeling too. I'd love to hear your thoughts as well.

I'm not sure if I find the execution insensitive, but I'm glad someone in the higher-ups is saying it.

The APO needs a Picatinny rail for accessories.

KyJim, "The APO needs a Picatinny rail for accessories"

Ha! It could go between the "Folding Stock" and the "Muzzle Break Thingy that "Goes Up!""

The concept is entirely appropriate and the timing is also appropriate.

The grabbers just hate it when someone points out the follies of their position and their arguments.

The timing is unfortunate, but the illustration does show the foolishness of focusing on inanimate objects instead of the persons who use them to commit crimes.
