Anyone who follows my writing knows how I feel about gun nuts. In short, I think they’re mentally ill lunatics who shouldn’t even be allowed to own guns. Gun fanatics often claim that it’s not guns who kill people, but people suffering from mental illness who do. Well, in my opinion, people who obsess over inanimate lethal objects and seem to live in such constant fear that they feel the need to carry a loaded gun with them while running basic errands are mentally ill.

Especially those individuals who think gun ownership is meant for some kind of violent overthrow of our government.

Well, Moms With Guns Demand Action founder Kathy Perkins posted a picture on her Facebook page of President Obama’s recent trip to Texas, with the caption “Where is an assasin (sic) when you need one?”

Yes, even while posting something as ignorant as that, she apparently couldn’t even spell “assassin” correctly.  Apparently the complexities of spellcheck have once again eluded a right-wing fanatic.

According to the Moms With Guns website, their mission is:

By Remaining Armed Moms of America We will NOT be Victims!!! Our Mission is to Normalize the Open Carrying Of FireArms in the State of Texas and Inspire Other States to Normalize the same. We are Law Abiding Citizens of this Great Republic of the United States of America from ALL walks of life.

In other words their mission is to take our society back to the 1800’s, similar to the wild west where people often carried guns holstered to their hips.  You know, when deadly shootouts were a common way to settle a disagreement.

The image itself was a side by side of President Obama at a local restaurant in Texas next to an image of Rick Perry getting photo-ops at the U.S. Mexico border for his 2016 presidential campaign assessing the situation at the border, with the statement, “President Obama snacks on some TX BBQ while Gov. Perry tours TX border.  So who’s really out of touch here?”

You know, because riding around on a boat at the Texas border with a backwards hat on and a bullet proof vest really has a lot to do with the law signed in 2008 by President George W. Bush detailing how legally we have to handle immigrants from non-contiguous countries.

Which is the real catalyst as to why so many immigrants from South and Central America have been coming here the last few years.

And while I’d say this woman’s post was shocking – it’s really not.  I’ve heard people say similar things here in Texas quite frequently.  Just the other day while I was out I heard a woman tell a man, “Yeah, that fucking assh*le Obama is to blame for it. I wish he’d just die.”

Not exactly sure what she was referring to, but the statement itself is the general feeling I get from many conservatives here in Texas and I’m sure all across the country.

I say with absolute certainty had this image not been taken down there would have been plenty more comments in agreement with the notion expressed by Perkins.

Then again, what should we expect from a bunch of people who are so mentally unstable that they feel the need to carry semi-automatic assault rifles with them nearly everywhere they go?
