Wonder If A Georgia GOP Candidate Would Do This?

Conventional political wisdom sweeping through the nation right now is that Republicans can maintain their House majority – and even retake the Senate – simply by taking aim at ObamaCare.

Now, a congressional candidate from our neighboring state of Alabama is doing just that … literally.

“We’re down here to have a little fun today and talk about two serious subjects: the Second Amendment and see how much damage we can do to this copy of Obamacare,” says Will Brooke, running in the GOP primary for Alabama’s 6th district, in a new video posted earlier this week to YouTube.

We’re wondering if any Georgia GOP candidate would take “shooting down ObamaCare” so literally.

Loved it! Charlene, Me and “the boys” were just marvelin’ at it. Course, some pencil-necked librul will probably be after him to see if he had a permit for all them guns! If that is an open seat, he can go ahead and measure that office for drapes!

I’ve always thought you know what would make Georgia better? If we could just be more like Alabama. Huzzah.

Everyone should see the video that demonstrates what “assault rifles” do, compared to hunting rifles.

Sure, provided you accept 7.62×39, which fires a round considerably slower than most any other assault rifle fielded in the last 50 years or so, is representative. The video also assumes ballistic effects on watermelons are somehow representative of what people, you know, shoot at. Basically, that video’s informative only to Gallagher.

I’d suggest taking a gander here and comparing wound channels:

Or a direct comparison of the AK-47 to other rifles here:

Note the Soviets moved away from the AK-47 decades ago, when they went with the AK-74, which fires a 5.45x39mm round not entirely unlike the 5.56×45 round.

Of course, real men shoot 7.62x54R. More information is here:

Now that’s the way that ObamaCare should be handled!

Nearly two minutes to make points about the 2nd amendment and Obamacare, and the message is that we got to resort to more extreme measures like grinding up paper instead of shooting holes in it to get rid of Obamacare so we can replace Obamacare with a market-based solution.

He understands the intricacies of GOP policy, and can explain it at an intellectual level comprehensible to the general GOP base. He’s a natural!
