We all watched as President Obama gave an impassioned plea explaining his Executive Order attempting to implement common-sense gun regulations. There wasn't a single proposal that would revoke Cletis and Bobby Sue's guns. Except they didn't get that memo in Texas.
The right-wing freak out was predictably awful, with no consideration given to the true raw emotion shown by President Obama. The man has had to comfort the nation too many times, thanks to all the mass shootings, mostly carried out with automatic weapons.
It shouldn't be surprising that a few days after Texas was hit with deadly tornadoes and Governor Abbott begged the Federal Government for aid for the afflicted areas, that he would be imperiling the president's life over Second Amendment disparities. But it is rather appalling, especially when you consider that he's the Commander in Chief of the United States.
Even after seven years, it's hard to get used to all the disrespect thrown at President Obama, but threatening his life is just plain insane. Of course, it makes him very popular with the wingnut demographic in the Lone Star State.
Here is his recent tweet that threatens our Commander in Chief if he wants to impose sensible regulations on guns designed to save lives.

The man is a religious fanatic and avid Creationist. He's also very, ignorant of the difference in population between California and Texas, as was evidenced by this bird-brained tweet, no disrespect to birds.

Separation of Church and State is very alien to Mr. Abbott. Everyone is a Christian as far as Governor Ammosexual is concerned.
I bet there are many Texans out there, and other sympathetic Americans, who wish Molly Ivins or Ann Richards were alive today to tell this bumbling idiot what's what. Too many brainwashed religious fundamentalists, who are addicted to the power of a firearm, are really dangerous. If someone like Wendy Davis were governor, I guarantee that the Texas economy and social problems would be a helluva lot better than they are under this man. If you think a Governor can't get worse than Governor Oops, think again. There's always someone worse in the GOP. Always.
