Get Your Gunn

The BBC reports:

A pastor in the US state of Kentucky told his flock to bring handguns to church in what he said was an effort to promote safe gun ownership.

The whole idea is loopy enough, but what really bugs me is this:

He said he acted after church members voiced fears the Obama administration could tighten gun control laws.

Ummmm... Gun control is so far off the White House's radar, the only way that anyone could be worried about the Obama administration trying to muscle through strict new anti-gun control legislation is if they are a reactionary conservative moron.

(Yes, I know Congress was recently looking at a bill that would force gun owners in all states to have a license, but #1 it has a snowball's chance in hell of actually passing, #2 it was sponsored by an Illinois congressman and has absolutely nothing to do with Obama, and #3 it kind of seems like a good idea to me... This is not about banning guns, this is about saying that you have to be licensed before you can own one, which doesn't seem like an unreasonable request to me. If that makes me a commie, then break out the hammer and sickle!)
