I'm sorry, i just don't get that.
Let me be clear about a few things first: I support the second amendment and I don't support Obama for the presidency.
Now, with that out of the way, what's funny about a 'joke' where someone is aiming a gun at a presidential candidate...and a black one at that???
Moreover, this wasn't made by Joe-Blow in the street of Arkansas, but by one who has the national stage as a political leader.
You really think that's funny? Is that what we want as a representation of our national political discourse?
And the joke itself is even more preposterous in the context of an NRA speech whose position has always been the RESPONSIBLE use of firearms.
Why is aiming a gun at anybody funny???
Finally, what should
someone do when a gun is pointed at them? Stand their ground???
This is so pathetic from so many angles, I can't stand it.
