Bogus anti-gun "sportsmen's" group endorses…Obama!

This has been percolating through several of the blogs I read–a “sportsmen’s group” dedicated to the right not to own handguns has plumped for the Obamessiah. The delightfully snarktastic S. Weasel is not particularly surprised:

Well! Who would ever have thought? The American Hunters and Shooters Association has endorsed Barack Obama.

Who they? you may ask. Ignoring your appalling grammar for the moment, the AHSA is a flakey-fakey “gun-rights” organization set up solely to endorse far left entities like Barack Obama so all you beery gun-humping rednecks will think he’s a bit of okay.

It was founded in 2005 by Ray Schoenke, a Kos diarist who, in fairness, really does shoot ducks, apparently. At least, most of his conversations seem to take place in a duck blind. Schoenke has pissed away thousands on Handgun Control, Inc., Americans Coming Together and a dozen of the sleazeballingest Democrats ever to run for public office. So when Schoenke says “nonpartisan” you can be sure he’s just said a word that has four syllables.

The AHSA domain was originally registered to DCS, a Democrat new media operation, but they must have realized that didn’t look good.

Check the rest of her post on that. Others looking into the AHSA are Confederate Yankee and Say Uncle.

They really think we’re stupid. I think this is more Thomas Frankism at work. They believe rural and small-town people are gullible and will believe anything that conservatives tell them, so therefore they can put up their own bogus liberal gun rights group as an endorsement and fool them too.

Curious how, just like the Democrats, the American Hunters Who Don’t Like Icky Guns believe the Second Amendment only guarantees ownership of certain hunting rifles and shotguns. Then they give their reason for supporting Obama as his only vaguely pro-gun act, ever: his support for returning confiscated guns to Katrina victims. Apparently that was so they could resume their…alligator-hunting, or whatever sort of hunting goes on in downtown New Orleans.

HEH UPDATE: Commenter Harris likes the copy on the American Sportsmen’s Arms Are For Hugging (or whatever it’s called) website:

Heh, that site is pretty funny. I love the part saying Obama “gets it”.

“Well son, this pistol would go to you when grow up, but now Obama gets it.
