Branson talk show host to Obama: Do you not understand pry it from my cold, dead hands?

Branson talk show host Eric Farris issued the following open letter to President Barack Obama today:

Your Vice President Joe Biden said today that you are considering bypassing Congress to implement gun control by Executive Order. Does the declaration sworn by Charlton Heston that "I'll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands" not mean anything to you?

We are fed up with you treating us like subjects in some sort of a banana republic. This is the United States of America and the Founding Fathers didn't codify in the Constitution our God-given inalienable rights for you to decide which ones we get to keep.

You have the audacity, while your home city has the worst murder record while under the toughest gun control laws in the nation, to tell us that law-abiding people are now law-breakers and that you want gun control for our safety? That is the height of arrogance, deceit and ignorance.

The American People are allowed by the Constitution to carry, bear and use our guns to defend ourselves against -- robbers, intruders, people who threaten violence against our families -- AND -- any government, foreign or domestic, that would seek to subject us to tyranny.

Understand that We The People will protect our families, property and the liberties that we enjoy which are memorialized in the Constitution.

That said, you should uphold your oath to abide by the Constitution and govern our Republic accordingly.

Eric Ferris comments are about as relevant to this situation as a distant crowing rooster.

Who cares.

Temper, temper, Eric. No one's denying you the right to own a hunting rifle to shoot quail or a handgun to shoot intruders at your "castle". Take a couple of chill pills and call me in the morning.

Never liked Heston' attitude either. ollywood Stars are often just blowing wind! Too bad Heston didn't take some chill pills before blowing off steam. Some folks forget thatt ifg you don't hit the rabbit on the first single shot you mostly likely won't get the second chance. Doubt there would be anything left to take home after a barrage of an A15..Oh Well!

Never heard of this guy until your post. Is he an entertainer? Why does anyone care what he even says?

Ferris is a Branson attorney, but now apparently he thinks he is an entertainer.

Silly comments from a Branson idiot! Does this guy know what he is really addressing or just a chance to attack our President?
