This one has some interesting twists and turns. The perception that our new pres is against gun rights has increased sales of guns. Gotta get them before the socialist tries to take them away, you know. Not only that, but states have loosened gun regulations in response to the perception that Obama, being a Marxist and anti second amendment and all, wants to restrict guns. Meanwhile, the president has been silent on the issue. The result? Violent crime is at its lowest point in 50 years, proving.. proving?? Perhaps that the gun advocates are correct about the benefits of law abiding citizens having weapons, but what else? Could it be that perception is far more important than actual actions and substance? Fearing Obama Agenda, States Push to Loosen Gun Laws Isn't all that a delicious irony?
