Gun part manufacturer’s ‘Obama’s Blaster’ for AR-15s leads to death threats

A California gun-parts manufacturer is making a big noise with his latest product:

An upper receiver for an AR-15 he’s christened “Obama’s Blaster.”

“We stirred up a very liberal hornet’s nest,” Ares Armor owner Dimitrios Karrras told the San Diego Union Tribune.

obamasblaster0922And how. He’s been on the receiving end of a barrage of Twitter postings criticizing him for daring to use the president’s name in vain, and says he’s even gotten death threats from more wacked out Obamaphiles.

But he’s keeping his sense of humor.

In introducing the gun part, Karras said Obama deserved the honor for contributing to gun sales. Every time the president talks up gun control gun sales soar.

In the official introduction, Ares Armor poked fun at some of Obama’s other “qualities,” too, and compared him to the Bugs Bunny cartoon character “Marvin the Martian,” who wanted to blow up the Earth for obstructing his view of Venus.

We would like to thank President Barrack Obama for being the distinguished firearms industry spokesman and salesmen of all time. We are now producing what we believe he would really want in an “Blaster.”

Much like Marvin, Barry is believed to be an alien and also was in possession of an illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator. Unfortunately for us, Barry believes that the United States is not only blocking his view of Venus, but is also blocking his social and political views with our pesky Constitution. Luckily, after 2,000 years of research and when he was finally ready to use the Illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator to destroy the Constitution and the United States, Bugs Bunny saved the day and destroyed this device!

If good ol’ Barry had been in possession of a “blaster” such as this, maybe things would have been different for Bugsy. It might have actually been Rabbit season.

“Obviously it’s a joke,” Karras said. “It’s funny.”

Naturally, not everyone thinks so.

The libs at Talking Points Memo didn’t like it, noting darkly that the Marvin the Martian joke hints at “birtherism” and a boatload of paranoid Twitter posters accused Karras of being a right-wing nut who advocated harm to the president.

Karras doesn’t seem worried. He survived a raid by the ATF in the spring that he says was unjustified and resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory being confiscated. He’s fighting to get it back.

As to the Obama’s Blaster upper receiver?

“It’s to celebrate his status as the world’s greatest gun salesman,” Karras said.
