    Oh no doubt that they timed their indignation for maximum effects. Doesn't change the story, though.

    Since this is the latest gun thread:

    link to the image since it's rather large. Essentially, the gun crime rate matches up almost perfectly with the Obama voting county data from 2012.

    I don't really care, but I do find it interesting.

    Violent game = ok.
    Hundreds of alcoholic ads = ok.
    Beyonce wearing skimpy clothes at halftime = ok.
    GoDaddy commercials = just fine.
    Violent Hollywood blockbuster commercials, often times with guns = ok.
    Gun ad that doesn't show any guns or violence = too far!
    The problem with the commercial is that it's wholesome, traditionally American, self-empowering, promotes the family, promotes the father as a protector of the family, promotes the FACT AND NATURAL RIGHT that YOUR children are YOUR children, not the state's and are the FATHER'S responsibility to protect.

    THAT is what the tyrants/leftists see wrong with this commercial. That it actually shows the power of individual decency and responsibility that living with Liberty brings.
    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    You are either with Our Constitution or you are with The Terrorists!

    Government...if it leans to the left it eventually means theft. - tlc
