Because we are, after all, a gun-crazy nation.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an emerging conservative folk hero, got a speaking slot at today’s NRA convention, which he used to rile up the crowd by suggesting that the arrows in the talons of the eagle on the Great Seal of the United States be replaced with a semi-automatic rifle…

“There is nothing else I would rather hold in my hand when fighting government tyranny than a Bible in my left hand that I use to swear to uphold the Constitution, and in my right hand a Winchester rifle, a symbol of freedom and liberty in the United States of America…

“In fact,” he continued, “I propose that we change the Great Seal of the United States, you know the one with the American bald eagle holding an olive branch in one claw and arrows in the other. We should take those arrows out of the eagle’s claws and replace them with a semi-automatic rifle, preferably one that shoots M-855 ammunition.”

    Only if we have the eagle engaged in gay sex, if that is a no then the gun is a no.

    Obama was right — these right wing clowns really do cling to their bullets and Bibles.

    This is what happens when one is lacking in brain cells….they start book thumping and looking for ammo.

    How can we tell the ones who are “fighting government tyranny” from the insurrectionists?

    Considering we are such a war mongering nation, he’s right, we should honor machineguns, knives and swords, even the Abomb. maybe a nice mushroom cloud on the back of the silver dollar…
    How many more examples will they give us to convince us we need to rid ourselves of these right wing fruitloops from the government?
