Obama's Blaster

I am also going to past in the text in case the page disappears.

An Oceanside-based gun parts store has incited nationwide controversy over an item dubbed “The Obama’s Blaster” – controversy the store’s owner welcomes.

Ares Armor owner Dimitrios Karras told NBC 7 he has received a slew of death threats after naming a $550 AR-15 gun barrel “The Obama’s Blaster” as a joke.\

"I mean, we had one guy who literally said he wished he had a rocket launcher to shoot rockets at us because we named a product after the president,” said Karras. “He's so anti-gun that he's become pro-rocket.”

In a YouTube video and description dripping with sarcasm, Ares Armor thanks President “Barrack” Obama for being “the distinguished firearms industry spokesman and salesman of all time.”

The video’s description compares the president to Marvin the Martian from the cartoon Looney Tunes, whose goal is to destroy Earth to get a better view of Venus. It says the United States is blocking Obama’s social and political views of our “pesky Constitution.”

Although the post includes a disclaimer saying it’s a parody for the purpose of symbolic speech, many people aren’t laughing.

“So you're making not so subtle hints at killing the President. Congrats! You're right up there with ISIS, you unpatriotic pieces of s***,” one viewer commented.

Karras defended the name, explaining the apostrophe means it’s not a threat.

"It is 'The Obama's Blaster.' It's a singular possessive, which means it's a blaster that would be used by Obama,” he said.

The former Marine said he knew the name would make people talk, but he was surprised with the amount of pushback it has caused. Across the country, The Washington Times recently caught wind of the controversy and called Karras.

He told NBC 7 the store is considering an entire presidential line so our current commander-in-chief isn’t the only one singled out. Karras threw out names like “Bush’s Revenge” or “Slick Willy” for follow-up parts.

In San Diego, opinions are split on the gun barrel.

"I feel like that crosses a line on a whole bunch of different levels,” said Neal Carlson, who works for a marketing firm. “I'm not really too into politics that much but to have a barrel attachment for an AR-15 named after our president is very intense. I don't think that that's at all OK.”

But others see it as a nod to Obama’s position as the leader of our military.

“He gave the order to take out Osama Bin Laden. I mean, he's just showing him some honor. What's wrong with that?" said Job Seth Davidson, a former Marine.

Clearly Ares Armor customers don’t object. “The Obama’s Blaster” is completely sold out.

Ares Armament. I remember those guys.

A year or so ago they were in trouble with their local City Hall because they refused to take down their business sign, (it has a picture of a scary AR on it). Seems like the city was also trying to use the fact that they sell mail-order 80% lowers as a excuse to shut them down, (Obviously didn't work).

Nutnfancy did a whole, hour long segment in their shop. One of the owners was/is a law student, might be a full-fledged lawyer by now), seems like they kind of get off on being the center of attention.

Hey, if they're fighting in the courts and media for all of our freedom while increasing their visibility and selling more products, more power to them.

Rock on Ares.
And why don't people actually learn the English language? Oblama's Blaster clearly refers to a blaster used by oblama.....

UD
You are asking too much of people.
Just because you were born and educated in an English speaking country why should you bother to learn the language.

Especially In Oceanside. If they're not a Marine, married to a Marine, or trying to sleep with a Marine, they're probably an immigrant. That accounts for at least 75% of the population of that grimy little city.

Last summer it wasn't that way. Lots of Marines from Camp Pendleton live there though so it's a mixed bunch.
