Barack Obama Was Not Welcome at This Miami Gun Show

On Sunday, Banana Republican stopped by the Victor Bean's Southern Classic Gun & Knife Show at the Miami-Dade County youth fairgrounds to gauge the mood of Second Amendment acolytes in the wake of Barack Obama's announcement last week that he wants to clamp down on guns.

For all his blustering about stemming the flow of firearms in the land of the free and home of the brave, Obama has set off a nationwide gun buying frenzy. The gun show was packed with customers looking to arm themselves against the tyrannical Commander-In-Chief, who they claim is using the horrific tragedy of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to further erode Americans' rights. And by God, they will not let anyone, especially Obummer, take away their freedom!
