Sarah Palin spoke to the NRA Members’ Meeting yesterday and, among many choice qoutes, had some words for Attorney General Eric Holder on gun control.
“Attorney General Eric Holder recently he revels this idea to have government have gun owners wear bracelets, special bracelets that would identify you as a gun owner. Well, hey Holder. You don’t want to go there buddy.” (around 2:10 in the video above)
Palin brings in common sense objections to liberal gun control nuts, such as how so many of them hide behind guns themselves. “Our children? They’re protected by a thin tin sign that reads ‘gun free zone.’ Yeah, like that’ll stop the bad guy. That is stupid on steroids.” Outstanding.
She also throws in some great bumper sticker favorites like “don’t waste a bullet on a warning shot” and “I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.”
“I do have to apologize for that, I am sorry. Not all intolerant anti-freedom leftist liberals are hypocrites,” Palin says before a well-timed pause. “I’m kidding, yes they are!”
She also laments how America under the left’s political correctness regime fails to put the “fear of God” into our enemies. “If I were in charge,” says Palin, “they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”
Per usual, Palin delivers a terrific speech that appeals directly to conservatives, blue collar workers, and middle America. Suck on it, Charlie Gibson.
