It’s irritating enough knowing that the government wants you to use Thanksgiving as an opportunity to talk to your family about Obamacare. Now, Mayors Against Illegal Guns is trying to co-opt Turkey Day to push gun control. But don’t worry — MAIG’s campaign arm Demand Action has graciously come up with a handy-dandy placemat to help you out:

Guess not.

Twitchy coverage of Mayors Against Illegal Guns

  • Sonya A. Willis

    Saying that liberals are mentally disturbed is an understatement. Everything is political to them. No wonder they walk around angry and constipated. They won’t be happy until everyone is as miserable as they are.

    • Ed McDowell


    • Spiny Norman

      They have been taught that way since childhood.

      • Swagner

        Pulling yourself up, pulling others down, when reality is relative, they’re the same!

    • rssllue

      And this political climate in our country currently so feels like being caught in a Chinese finger puzzle and we are not able to get out!

  • Jefferson Tea Party

    Lesson? Alienate and shun all liberal family members while there’s still time before Thanksgiving!!!

    • Texan357

      Where’s the follow-up; “How To Enjoy Spending Christmas Alone?”

      • Jefferson Tea Party


  • mickeyco

    We live in a very strange place & time.

  • QueenB ✓certifiable

    So if your family doesn’t beat you down after spewing Obamacare talking points, keep it going with gun control?

    • alanstorm

      Didn’t you always suspect that liberalism was a disease that had more than a little masochism in its makeup?

      • Adela Wagner

        Of course, ’cause they’re ALL victims whaaaaaaaa!

  • WhoDat

    Our Cajun fried turkey is already enough of a killer.

    • NRPax

      “Cajun fried turkey”? How…intriguing.

    • DavidKramer

      Just started the brine for my smoke turkey WhoDat. If you want to come over I could throw a crow in just for you.

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    See, my aunt may be an annoyingly rabid, straight-ticket Democrat, but at least she has the basic human decency to not derail Thanksgiving with this crap.

    • Spiny Norman

      I first read that as “straight-jacket Democrat.”

      How odd…

      • Fairfax51

        Not odd….Freudian.

      • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

        She’s not quite there yet.

        • Swagner

          I love the qualifier! I’ve actually got an aunt like that too (possibly more so), at least she’s coming to family gatherings again now!

          • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

            Well, most of our extended family is in Alabama, so we tend to stay at my aunt’s house for the holidays. Since the rest of my immediate family (both parents, brother and his wife) are all Tea Party Libertarians, we try to avoid political talk with her, especially because she seems to think we’re all naive for holding our beliefs.

            At one point she did ask my mother/her sister why we always change the subject on her, and Mom responded “Because when you get on politics you just rant for a while and make things uncomfortable.” Sadly, that didn’t serve as a wake-up call. She still does it, but not quite as often.

      • Noah

        me too

  • Joe W.

    Say…that would make a keen target I can use for sighting my new scoped 30.06….Just aim for the pumpkin pie in the middle, and I’m good…..

    • TopCat_Texas

      You beat me to that comment. I would it they would ship me about 100 copies? I could share them at the range.

  • SpaceRacer423

    if 90% of Americans supported background checks on all guns sales,
    then why hasn’t that become law?
    You can get 90% of people to say yes to anything if you word the question correctly.
    I’m willing to bet I can get 90% yes vote on drawing and quartering child rapists,
    however I doubt Demand Action is ok with that.

    • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

      Their 90% quote is off of a pole done in upper New York of 2200 people right after new town. Hardy a cross section of the country and how they feel. Unfortunately they don’t need to let anyone know that in their campaign against civil rights.

    • TopCat_Texas

      I would not be so sure. Based on some the names that the people in Arlington and San Antonio were called, I think there is nothing beyond their scope. The MDA group is probably the most vile group of people I have ever heard about.

  • Clayton Grant

    Demand Action and OFA both want to swap the heavenly scents of family cooking for the pungent smell of desperation.

    • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

      more like swapping turkey with the smell of BS but either will work.

  • Off A Cough

    Any push to waste your holiday with family by being a parrot of some asshat’s political goals should receive the ultimate hash tag: #GetBent

    • Kimihiro Watanuki

      I foresee some arrest this Thanksgiving.

  • V the K

    I really hope Democrats believe the “90% of Americans support gun control” meme and make national Colorado/New York/Maryland style gun laws the centerpiece of their 2014 campaigns.

    • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

      Their 90% quote is off of a pole done in upper New York of 2200 people right after new town. Hardy a cross section of the country and how they feel. Unfortunately they don’t need to let anyone know that in their campaign against civil rights.
      That is why they won’t run on it. The truth will come out and then they will….what am I saying they don’t give a crap about the truth. Carry on.

      • V the K

        If Democrats really believe it, they will run commercials proclaiming, “Elect us, and we’ll enact Mike Bloomberg’s, Chris Christie’s and Andre Cuomo’s gun laws nationwide.”

        And I would like to see them run on that. Come January 2015, the Democrat Caucus would be reduced to Charlie Rangel and Sheila Jackson Lee.

        • Jay Stevens

          You forgot Nancy Pelosi.

      • TopCat_Texas

        And 2000 of the people interviewed had names with Bloomberg.

  • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

    Yes I want to talk about gun control with my family while eating a Turkey I shot myself with my unregistered, nonback ground checked shot gun. THAT is what I live for on Thanksgiving.

    • John Taznar

      If you hit the turkey, you should brag about your gun control. I would.

    • arttie

      At least you didn’t Biden the bird on the front door step.

      • IBXNJ

        “Would you like to shoot me now or wait till you get home??”

        • Cantbelieveyouthinkthis

          SHOOT HIM NOW, SHOOT HIM NOW!!! I miss Warner Bros cartoons.

          • IBXNJ

            “Be quiet, he doesn’t have to shoot YOU now”..

  • Ed McDowell

    Not one Pilgrim/Native American in sight.

  • NRPax

    I am thankful that even the liberals in my extended family aren’t religious zealots like these idjits.

  • DavidKramer

    Someone at Ace of Spades in the comment section said it best.

    For all the regular people coming to dinner, they get turkey, any liberals show up, they get crow.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      I got a friend who is a prison guard. I convinced that person(see what I did there?) to bring me a 2# chunk of “loaf”. It is what inmates now eat. Everything mixed together and cooked as a loaf. It is truly awful…..harmless, but awful. That is what the libs get if they open their pieholes about this….

      • DavidKramer

        I have a sister that just started this year as a prison guard. Hey, the government can create jobs!

      • ToyZebra

        What a beautiful idea. Instead of food stamps and EBT, there should be a weekly distribution of “loaf”.

        • ceemack

          Didn’t they make a movie about that in the 70s?

  • Bernie Candide Gilbert

    In my experience, it has always been a good idea to start a fight with someone who has a gun.

  • grais

    Shouldn’t they transpose their nonsense onto Michelle’s food-group placemat?
    And shouldn’t we be able to color it ourselves with a govenment-provided box of crayons?

    silly-ass kids

  • Right Wired ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I’m going to use a copy of the Bill of Rights instead.

  • interestedobserver2

    Maybe we should do a placemat with talking points on why all liberals ought to be committed to insane asylums immediately. I’m sure it would have to be printed on BOTH sides to accommodate all the data….

    • TopCat_Texas

      Oh, do not forget ObamaCare also has a place mat for your enjoyment.

  • Macsen Overdrive ✓re-rolled

    It would make more appropriate toilet paper.

    • arttie

      Too harsh.

  • garygramscom

    I was planning on talking about how armed citizens can stop the knockout game…

  • FilleGitane

    Dear Democrats please run on Obamacare and gun control. #WINNING

  • $29561723

    Can we get Bob Costas to read this to me in a stern, unflinching voice?

    • John Alvarado

      He will be helping people talk about it at halftime during the Steelers-Ravens game.

  • Tre

    In the South there’ll be people coming home from deer hunting with their high-powered rifles. Then some idiot will try to put one of these placemats in front of them.
    Not a good idea!

  • Lindakl

    And we have to pay for all of this crap!!!

  • Zakasnak

    “90% of Americans support background checks for all gun sales. That’s about the same percentage of Americans who enjoy eating pie.”

    Looking at the pie graphic, it looks like only 10% enjoy the pie…….

  • Evin

    Let’s talk about the benefits of obamacare and gun control at Thanksgiving this year y’all.

    Good talk.

  • BigRed

    That placemat just screams for some crayons and boogers all over it.

  • Rick Hess

    Looks like it would make a great plinking target, since that’s about all it’s worth.

  • ToyZebra

    The left keeps trying to get families to kill each other over Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Leslie Lesaroo

    OMG! What desperation they stoop to! ROFL!

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    God wins in the end, until then we will use what is necessary to protect us from the physical evils here on earth, it is our birthright!

  • Spasmolytic

    Is there anything liberals wont do for political gain?

    • Fhalkyn Phoenix

      Probably not, no.

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    We will be sure to discuss with our neighbors how much you, your buddies, commies and Obama have destroyed the Constitution, America, Freedom, Liberty, Privacy and Private Property, Jobs, Hospitals, Doctors, Insurance Industry, and the Stealing from the children and grand-children’s future…

  • Derek Penner

    To Demand Action I say: “Have a very unhappy Thanksgiving, pilgrims!”

  • Jim Roberts

    I’ll print one and stick it to my self-healing gong target

  • $6565218

    The only thing my family would be talking about is how this admin sucks.
    I’m still not understanding where they think they are going with the background check thing. Every gun I have purchased, whether at a gun shop or gun show, pistol or rifle, has had a background check done and I live in a state that not only offers a concealed permits but anyone over 21 can carry concealed without a permit.

  • al hunt

    if you even notice a place mat, you need to get better cooks in your family!

  • Swagner

    Somehow I suspect that this was intended for indoctrinating children (as though liberal parents needed more tools).
