As you can see, this is the third consecutive post from Mario Piperni’s website. I am absolutely in awe of Mario’s artwork and try to dispaly it as often as possible. Out of all of Mario’s posters, this one stands out. Not so much as being his best work, but certainly his most powerful work. It’s an attention grabber and eye opener, indeed.
The right-wing rag, The Washington Times, finds nefarious motive in the U.S. blocking South Korea from selling vintage World War II MI rifles stateside.
It’s more likely that the administration is seeking to win the admiration of gun grabbers. Mr. Obama has a history of supporting gun control as a state senator and U.S. senator, but he’s been limited in his ability to implement this anti-gun agenda as president. Democratic members of Congress remember the federal assault-weapons ban as one of the lead issues motivating voters to turn Congress over to Republicans in 1994. Senators facing tight races in pro-gun states don’t want to see a repeat of that midterm landslide. Therefore, the best way for Mr. Obama to appease the gun-grabbing fringe is to take actions that won’t bring too much attention to what he’s doing. As long as the destruction of these rifles stays under the public radar screen, he will have achieved his goal.
Too ridiculous. As the DailyKos notes, if the President was seeking the “admiration of gun grabbers”, why would he keep the ban on MI rifles “under the public radar screen”? Why not shout it out from the mountain tops?
There’s just no end to this crap.
