January 19, 2003, is official Gun Appreciation Day, 2 days before Obama's inaguration. No coincidence there. The website says it's a "Chick-fil-A Style 'Gun Appreciation Day,'" but it sounds more like an attempt to reinvigorate and reshape the Tea Party around the gun fetish to reinstate the hate for Obama's second term.
The chair of the event is Larry Ward. He's the president of Political Media, Inc. and, according to his website, "burst onto the political scene in 2002 under the tutelage of world-renowned political consultant, and Fox News commentator Dick Morris." He brags about his connections to Dick Morris.
Gun. Appreciation. Weirdly inappropriate phrase, the kind of thing Stephen Colbert and his writers would come up with. But these people aren't kidding.
