"Gun Appreciation Day": the con stupid hurts.

I mean, you just can't make this up. I gets better and better...
"Political Media, a conservative action group, decided to try to make an appeal to win the hearts and minds of Americans everywhere by declaring (Obama Inauguration Day) January 19th – previously known as Martin Luther King Day, to the rest of us – to be "Gun Appreciation Day."
But even before their excellent idea gets out of the gate, it stalls out, as obnoxious reporters check the list of "Gun Appreciation Day" sponsors and find that the "American Third Position," a group that purports to represent the "unique political interests of White Americans," is one of the event's sponsors.
So now, Political Media has not only decided to hold its Gun Appreciation Event on a holiday meant to celebrate the life of a black leader who was a symbol of nonviolent protest and who was killed by a white man with a gun, it's done so with the financial help of some yahoo white supremacist group.
So far, so good, right? Well, then they go and actually hold their "Gun Appreciation Day" rallies all over the country, on Martin Luther King Day. And what happens? Five (gun loving NRA) people get accidentally shot!
The [NRA] then responded to Obama's inaugural speech by doubling down on the "elitist hypocrite" ad that earned them near-universal condemnation previously. So how could things get worse?
Well, you could have a spokesman for Political Media, which organized "Gun Appreciation Day," tell the Hollywood Reporter that Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is the perfect argument in support of gun rights. The idea is, get this, that there wouldn't have been slavery if slaves had had gun rights.
Are you people completely stupid?
Before anyone allowed slaves to have guns, they would have had to have other rights, like for instance being considered human beings. You'd have to have hoovered more coke than even Quentin Tarantino to imagine a world where white slave owners denied black people freedom of movement, denied them education and freedom of speech and dominion over their own bodies, but then for some reason also allowed them to buy guns. Jesus Christ! The whole point of slavery is that slaves didn't have any rights, much less the right to bear arms."

Gun appreciation day??!!
Are they serious? And why are we supposed to "appreciate" guns? The saddest part of this is that Sinclair stations had to run a mandatory package about gun appreciation day. Yeah, there goes that librul media again...
