On Monday, Downtrend reported that Attorney General Eric Holder suggested gun owners should wear bracelets. Sarah Palin doesn’t think that’s such a good idea.
On her Facebook page, Palin explained that she already wears identifying bracelets.
“One honors our military,” she said. “One honors independent Americans who have a healthy distrust of Washington’s permanent political class and who will fight against elitists hell-bent on fundamentally transforming the USA; And one celebrates the year 1791 – that glorious year our Bill of Rights came to be, with the cross and bones symbol representing our Founders’ ‘Death to Tyranny’ commitment, and on each side you’ll see symbols of my faith.”
And she doesn’t seem interested in replacing them with one of Holder’s choosing.
“Eric, you can replace my identifying bracelets with your government marker when you pry them off my cold, dead wrists,” she said.
And there you have it. Gun owners shouldn’t be treated like children or criminals who cannot be trusted with weapons. And if enough of them follow Palin’s lead, ill-advised ideas like this will be difficult to impose.
Meanwhile, the former governor of Alaska also took a jab at Holder’s recent exchange with Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX). After Gohmert commented that contempt “is not a big deal” to Holder and that it is important “we have proper oversight”, Holder said: “You don’t want to go there, buddy.”
Palin used those very words in her Facebook post. This is how she finished it off:
“And, Eric, ‘You don’t want to go there, buddy.’”
