"It's just insensitive," Bielamowicz said.

Shut up pussy!

Fifty years is still "too soon"?

Now, a commemorative JFK Mannlicher-Carcano would be in poor taste.  This?  Well, it's a bit gaudy for my tastes, but I don't have a problem with it.  The Kennedy memorial is in Dallas, and the rifle commemorates Dallas.

Now Teddy Kennedy may have had a problem with it because it's chambered in that well-known cop-killer caliber, the .30-30 Winchester, but seriously, this is a tempest in a tea pot.

Good, it will go well on the shelf next to my Ronald Reagan commemorative "Memory" board game.

A majority of people in the States think it is perfectly normal to commemorate the torture and execution of their messiah by displaying replicas of that very torture device just about everywhere they can, even wearing them as pendants, and a Kennedy Memorial Rifle is a problem?

In this case I can see commemorative helmets, celebrity impersonators, and/or ducks working.

Paging dittybopper to tell us how awesome this rifle is.

Christians show crosses all over the place. Hell, they even show bloodied dead Jesus hanging from the damn thing.
 
2013-07-16 10:20:32 AM
It's subliminally marketed as the rifle that killed Kennedy.

The brochure needs to include the statement:

Due to the historic nature of the piece, this is the only firearm that can legally be in your carry-on luggage when flying from DFW to New York, so you can entertain fellow passengers with tales of what each depiction on the gun means to you.

A representation of the Messiah dying for sins and a rifle representing the murder of a us president isn't exactly the same, but whatever.

I'd buy one.

Who buys this crap? Like the limited edition handgun commemorating Rick Perry's story about shooting a coyote while jogging?

Clad in stunning genuine craponite, presented to you in a diamond style encrusted storage chamber for your family to cherish for generations.

And if you act now, we will double your offer for just the original purchase price plus one additional price and separate postage and handling. Please note that there is a strict limit of 1 per caller.

"It's just that it's on there, and the president was killed with that," Bielamowicz said.

The president was killed with a Carcano bolt action rifle, not a lever action carbine.
He was also a 2nd amendment supporter (as most presidents claim to be).
So there isn't anything particularly unusual about commemorating him on a weapon.

/Granted that the weapon should have been the AR-15 pattern his administration converted us to.
/And it should have commemorated him rather than his memorial, which is also odd.

They aren't equal. One is in far worse taste than the other.

People remember Jesus with a cross, so why not?
It could have been a Lee Harvey Oswald commemorative rifle.  I have seen a few John Wilkes Booth themed pistols.

It's a Dallas commemorative rifle. It's a celebration of his assassination.

But you already knew that.

Is that a fake ad from National Lampoon? It looks too genuine to be a photoshop, and sounds like the tasteless humor I remember National Lampoon for.

Of course that was the 1960s NRA. Before they changed it into a political wing with most the contributions and kept a little leftover for actual promoting of firearms.

Indeed it is. I was eating a turkey sandwich in the student union when I was reading this issue and when I turned the page and saw this ad I laughed so hard I almost choked.

It's the Ted Kennedy commemorative amphicar.

The Gerald Ford commemorative staircase.

But then there is the 9/11 twin tower commemorative coin thingie with the towers that fall down.

Of course that was the 1960s NRA. Before they changed it into a political wing with most the contributions and kept a little leftover for actual promoting of firearms.


Do you know why the NRA changed?  The "Cincinnati Revolt" that changed the direction of the NRA happened in 1977, *AFTER* a bunch of new gun control laws had been passed and gun control groups organized in the decade previously, such as:

Gun Control Act of 1968
Creation of the ATF to administer the GCA '68 (1972)
National Coalition to Ban Handguns (formed 1974)
National Council to Control Handguns (formed 1974)
Handgun Ban in Washington DC (passed 1976, effective 1977)

That's just a partial list, hitting the major highlights.

The NRA got political in reaction to threats against gun rights and gun owners, not the other way around.

Can't seem to find it on the linked web site. There are several blank spots for pictures on the "Rifle" page, though.

My first thought was "Is it a Carcano?"
