A petulant President Barack Obama demanded that Americans talk about gun control over Thanksgiving.
Citizens responded by buying enough firearms in one day to field an entire new military the size of the Marine Corps, with guns left over to equip 2-4 Army divisions.
Mr. President you have you answer.
It was a rousing “screw you.”

Exploitative members of the mainstream media and the Democrat Party have attempted to use the Islamic terror attacks in France to frighten Americans into passing “Minority Report” legislation for the past few weeks. This legislation would strip American citizens of their core rights without a trial, or without them even being accused of committing a crime.
Rather than discuss the renewed threat of Islamic terrorism or the thousands of Syrian refugees that will soon be streaming into the country, President Obama wants families to focus their conversations on gun control while they are enjoying their turkey dinner this Thanksgiving.
In a press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest continued to push the president’s gun control agenda. The White House is now focusing on an effort by Democrats to ban Americans who are on the “no-fly” list from purchasing a firearm.
“As people sitting around the Thanksgiving table talking about these issues, as they should, and I’m sure they will all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised and asked by members around the table,” Earnest said, referring to the bill sponsored by congressional Democrats.
A stunning 40% of the people on this so-called “terror watch list”—somewhere between 280,00-300,000 souls—have no ties at all to terror groups. The FBI, CIA, NSA, and other intelligence organizations find the list to be almost worthless, and have not called for Congress to pass this legislation. this is nothing more or less than an attempt by one political party to amass power for itself at the expense of the citizenry.
Indeed, Americans are painfully aware that the mainstream media and the Democrat Party are itching for the power to declare more than five million Americans are terrorists for merely belonging to the Republic’s oldest civil rights group.
