Obama’s Gun.

with one comment

In lieu of a complete entry, this post from over at thegrio.com will suffice.
It has probably one of my new favorite pictures of all time in it.
Yes, that’s Barack you see there with the pump-action.
Probably the only thing that scares the folks that think that he’s trying to take their guns from them more?
The sight of him with one shooting the shit out of some skeet.
I will put a picture of it next to the Huey Newton one.
Just kidding.
Or am I?
Anyway, this has to count as the second entry for Black History Month.
Simply because this a) frightens a lot of people for all the wrong reasons, and b) makes a very interesting point about guns for sport, blacks owning guns, and gun culture, all at the same time.
Which reminds me of the point I’ll be making tomorrow.
Back with a complete entry then.
