Wel today's been fun. My rabidly pro-Obama co-worker--the one who thinks that Barry walks on water and who supports the so-called "Assault weapons ban" for you and me and everyone else--is now perstering me again to help him find two AR-15 rifles, or, failing that, to help him build two.
I have explained to him that the legislation that his "dear leader" wants shoved down our collective throats would make such weapons illegal for everyone, him included, and he replied that existing ones will be "grandfathered" so that he'll be able to keep his. He expects the ban to become a reality, and he's fine with that. He just wants two of them for himself first. And like a majority of Americans, including 41% of liberals like him, he has no plan to comply with any surrender requirement that this new legislation might come to contain.
He then went on a rant to tell me that these bans were not Obama's fault because Obama isn't calling for anyone's guns to be taken. I pointed out the actual pending legislation outlined in Sen. Feinstein's bill and he exclaimed: "Well that just what she wants! It's not what President Obama wants!"
Oh yeah...and it's always "President Obama" with this guy. He has actually dressed others down for just calling him "Obama", or "Barry" or "B.O." in the past.
Well I told him that even if there were AR-15 rifles available for sale at a decent price, I, as a rule, do not arm Obama supporters or assist in such foolhardiness. "You wanted him, you live under his utopian dreams," I told him.
Thinking that we were done, I went on about my business, only to have him come back around later and tell me that a gun shop near him has two AR-15 lowers that he wants to buy. He wanted my advice on how to build them up as he knows that I work on such things. He wants to build one up and sit on the other one to see if it increases in value down the road.
"Do you know anything at all about how to build something like that?" I asked him. "Do you have the required tools?"
"Well no," he admitted, smiling broadly. "But you probably do, and you can do it for me, right?"
"What part of 'I don't arm Obama supporters' do you just not get?" I asked him.
"Aw, come on, man. That's just talk. You KNOW me, man," he argued.
"Yep. I do know you. And I know that you're an Obama supporter and therefore all of this current mess is your fault. You voted for this and it's on you, now."
Unfortunately this tool put it on the rest of us too, and he's still proud of that despite not wanting to personally accept the loss of freedoms that he is willing to see others subjected to. He's like any one of a number of anti-gun Democrats and Liberals who have fought for gun control only to be exposed as a closet gun owner themselves. The only difference is that, unlike Sen. Feisntein or any of the other hypocrites, he doesn't have a gun yet. Now he's realized that the boat's sailing and he's scrambling desperately to get on board himself, all while enthusiastically screaming "bon Voyage!" and cheering on the departure of the good ship "Individual Liberties". I'm going to do what I can to preserve my own rights and freedom and that of my pro-freedom family and friends, but I'll be damned if I fight the fight on behalf of this guy or steer one of the few remaining "liberty teeth" AR rifles into his hands. Not gonna happen. But despite my telling him so repeatedly, he's been pestering me about it all day.
Five gets you ten that if and when such a ban passes, this is the Quisling who will anonymously report me for owning weapons in defiance of the ban even though he has no idea about what I own or have owned or will own then. He's just that kind of bitter spoiled man-child. And knowing him, he'll have one tucked under his own bed even as he makes that call naming me and other proud gun owners that we work with.
"Useful idiots" indeed. Obama never could have gotten elected or re-elected without them. Sadly, the rest of us will likely pay the price forever, but that's also partly our fault for letting them do it.
