    Shooting Sports Safe? Preposterous!
    Posted by vpcadmin on June 16, 2008

    Our good friend Mike Magnum over at the Gun Guys discovered that the Gun Blobby claims the “shooting sports” are safe and enjoyable, as long as certain rules are followed. Needless to say, Mike Magnum tears that argument to pieces. It doesn’t matter if high schools and colleges had rifle teams in the past; that was the past. This is the future; we know what the hell we are doing. We also agree with his decision to violate the copyright of Oleg Volk. Gun Blobbers don’t deserve to profit from their creations.

    Another kudos goes out to Mike Magnum, yet again, for his coverage of D.C. versus Heller. In this post, he explains that Second Amendment applies to the States only, obviously nullifying the Militia Act of 1792 and the Freedmen’s Bureau Act of 1866, both passed by Congress. He also discusses the bringing of assault pistols onto airplanes. We agree with his position and point new readers to our article on the first assault pistol ever made. Mauser C96 pistols definitely do not belong on airplanes.

    Sounds like it's time for a lawsuit.

    Uhh, the VPCBlog is a parody. It isn't written by anybody in the VPC.

    I must admit I found the entire site to be disjointed and disturbing, like a Tony Scott movie.

    What do you expect from a site that bisects the world into "good guys" and "gun whackos". Must be nice to see everything as black-and-white.

    Yeah, some of you folks may need to have your sarcasm detectors checked out- they seem to be malfunctioning.

    I have to admit it took me a minute to "get" the sarcasm. Once I did, that site is hilarious.

    That site is hilarious! I can't believe I had not heard of it before now. It's like Phil Hendrie for guns.

    VPCBlog is a parody, but the Gun guys site he links to seems to be real, and they do indeed have one of Olegs pics on it, sans credit.

    that site is great :d

    about JM Browning
    Turned a lever-action rifle into an assault weapon. He probably used Black Magic in order to accomplish this feat.
    He created six deadly pistol cartridges: .25 ACP*, .32 ACP, .38 ACP, .380 ACP, 9mm Browning Long, and .45 ACP.

    *ACP stands for “Assault Combat Pistol.”

    It's a very good parody on the very sad reality of the "policy centers"

    That has got to be one of the worst parody sites I've ever seen - not because he's doing a bad job, but because those VPC folks are so damn difficult to parody. Parodies work (in part) through gross over-exaggeration and statement of actual intent; he's got the over-exaggeration down, but not the statement of actual intent, which is marginally understated, if at all. And, of course, gross exaggeration (ie making a big fuss about nothing and being as radical as possible) is about par for the course for the VPC idiots.
