Gun Lobby Becoming Too Politically Correct?

By Javier Manjarres

gunsHave you ever gone to a shooting range and picked out a target printed in the silhouette of a human being? Answer is, yes. This past weekend a few friends and I decided squeeze off some rounds at a local gun range in Pompano Beach, Florida. Upon arriving at the rage, I couldn’t help but notice that one of the targets the range was using, was that of a Terrorist armed with a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG), and wearing the traditional terrorist garb.

What is the big deal? The Terrorist’s skin was painted blue. Any part of the image that displayed the terrorist’s skin was painted in blue. God forbid that we  shoot at an image of a person who’s skin is darker, like an actual black person or from Middle Eastern decent than the paper the image is printed on.

Is the gun lobby being too politically correct here?

 Here are the targets in question, and one of the targets I shot at with my Mossberg 500 Tactical Shotgun. Just an FYI, I shot at this target using slugs, at a range of 35 feet.

    They should make the targets to look like Obama

      While I certainly have no use for the Marxist in the White House, making targets that look like him or any political figure would be a very bad idea. That’s the kind of thing that offers the media a chance to get into things and turns off the general public. The media and the left in general are looking for every opportunity to portray all gun owners as right wing extremists that should be disarmed. Let’s not make it any easier for them.

    The cartoon below by Kansas City Star cartoonist Lee Judge, was originally published on Feb. 9 — three days before Kyle’s memorial and ran in the Charlotte Sun Herald (how disrespectful). Please remember that Kyle’s friend, Chad Littlefield was also murdered on the same day. Political Cartoon Mocks Murdered Navy SEAL to Make Point on Gun …

    Fellow Patriots, the main purpose of The Chris Kyle Statue is to pay Tribute and Honor a True American Hero, the absolute best US Sniper in American Military History. However, I believe, this Statue can also be Our “rallying cry, a cry to arms” for Our 2nd Amendment Rights.

    Please see the attached and read the below, we must make this GO VIRAL and get ALL AMERICANS PATRIOTS behind the Chris Kyle Statue Project.

    I am reaching out to various individuals, groups and organizations for their participation in our efforts. I have secured the transportation of the statue to Texas via a special “climate controlled” trailer operated by Carl & Carol Walin, the very same couple that brought the WTC Beam from JFK Airport to Sarasota (for the 9.11 Memorial in Patriots Park in Venice, Fl) Reliable Carriers, Inc. | Vehicles Taken Seriously. a nationally known carrier. I’m in discussions with Bronze Castings Foundries in Texas asking them if they are interested in providing the Lost Wax Process (Lost Wax Casting Process – YouTube) to complete the statue. I am also speaking to Structural Engineering Firms in Texas if their interested in designing the foundation/base for the statue. I have contacted the National Media Outlets, Glenn Beck, Dr. Bill Bennett, All the FoxNews Talk Show Host’s, etc.

    The statue is in our American Patriots in Art Studio in Sarasota, Florida, we will be hosting a Fundraiser Showing of the Chris Kyle statue within the next few weeks and will make a formal announcement of the date, time and place.

    Please contact me for additional information and details.

    Everything with Obama has become a political issue. This is how he aims to make this a socialist country. If he and his lackeys take all legal firearms away from Americans, the next day smugglers and the Chicago hoods will have them flooding the streets again. Obama turns any new “situation” into a hysterical debacle, using little kids and grieving families to further his agenda. He is a total waste as a president.
    I haven’t seen or heard anything from the liberal media about his lack of concern for all the murders in his native Chicago. He doesn’t dare offend his hood brothers.
