Now Available: Obama 2012 Lower Receivers

As we reported some time ago, Palmetto State Armory has made their Obama 2012 lower receivers for the AR-15. They’re now available will start shipping on the 15th of August. The price tag is a modest $119.95, and still no word on whether proceeds will be going to either campaign. More info after the jump…

In Celebration of our dear leader’s historic presidency, we are proud to announce the pre-sale of a very limited edition commemorative lower. Crafted from Forged 7075 T6 aluminum, anodized and hardcoated black per mil-spec, these feature a special rollmark and a serial prefix of “YES WE CAN.” In addition, the safe and fire positions are labeled “Hope” and “Change”. Your paid order reserves one of these special lowers. Lowers are expected to start shipping August 15th.

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA I have got to get my hands on one of those!

    I like the spirit of it…but honestly I could not deal with being seen having that in my possession. Having the Obama name on it. I’m truly hoping that Obama goes the way of Carter, as he is nothing more than a hyped up version of Carter. If like to get past this nutjob and just move on. Just my thoughts.

      It wouldn’t bother me if he went the way of Jimmy Hoffa.

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        It’s idiotic statements like yours that make us all look like a bunch of fringe lunatics. All we need is for some 60 minutes reporter to screen shot this and report on how every gun nut wants presidential blood.

        Aside from that, are you really dense enough to believe that if Obama went away there wouldn’t be a mile long line of clones waiting to replace him? Solutions come from convincing the other side that we are correct, not disappearing them.

        1. avatar theaton says:

          I don’t see anything wrong with TSgt B’s comment. He didn’t say he wanted Presidential blood. I don’t even recall that there is proof that Hoffa is dead. He just disappeared. TSgt B is using those wonderful things called Freedom and Liberty. They are enshrinded in the First Amendment to the Constituiton. All rights are important, not just the RKABA.

          Yes, you have the right to say what you want about his comments too, the freedom of expression is how this country was founded and its a damn fine country.

          If you’re not comforatable with the idea of a Tyrannt going away you might want re-think your ideas of Freedom and Liberty.

        2. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          I didn’t say he wanted presidential blood either. I specifically said “disappearing” and attributed “presidential blood” to the inevitable hyperbole of 60 Minutes or some other special reports show. And speaking of hyperbole, you think Obama’s a tyrant? Really? I think you’re going to have to come up with a new word to describe Hitler, Stalin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Bashar al-Assad then.

          I also didn’t say he didn’t have the right to say what he said. I said it was stupid. Amendment 1 says that Congress may make no law abridging free speech, it doesn’t say BlinkyPete shall not call dumb statements dumb.

          If you’re not comfortable reading and processing statements before responding to them maybe you should avoid responding.

        3. avatar theaton says:

          Hitler, Stalin, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Bashar al-Assad passed Tyranny long ago. They were/are evil, mass murderers.

          Since you used the words “Presidential Blood” and not 60 minutes, it was you that brought it up. To bring it up you must have thought about it. You can’t blame 60 minutes for words you put in their mouhts.

          Calling someone stupid for their beliefs is good discourse? Don’t you think it might make them think twice about sharing in the future? Don’t you think that could cause us to miss out on something great?

        4. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          Man you love those straw man arguments, don’t you? I never called him an idiot (though I guess that was the insinuation), I said the statement was idiotic.

          Obama is a shitty president, but he doesn’t wield absolute power, he didn’t seize power illegally (please don’t live up to my expectations by posting conspiracy theories here) and he doesn’t represent an oligarchy. Calling him a tyrant is a ridiculous exaggeration.

          In regards to 60 Minutes – really?!?!? Are you trying to protect them just because I said something mean about them? Did you happen to see their utterly fair, balanced and non-sensationalist take on fiddy call killers? Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKGo1NxIayk

        5. avatar theaton says:

          Wait, you’re telling me 60 minutes has a video out about the post above? They are good. I would never defend sixty minutes. They may do what you said, in the future but they probably haven’t even seen the comments on this blog yet, if ever at all.

          Calling someone stupid is protected speech and I’d die to protect your right to do so. However, it does not lead to good discourse and can limit free speech. The above lower and comments can’t limit the right to keep and bear arm. Nothing really can limit the right to keep arms but we allow legislatures to do it all the time.

          Have a good day.

        6. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          All I can understand is the last sentence, so you have a good day as well 🙂

    2. avatar shawmutt says:

      I hope you’re not banking on Romney to bring “hope” and “change”!

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        True this. Gary Johnson 2012!

  3. avatar jwm says:

    i believe there’s a big difference between carter and barry. i think carter was an honest man that was simply in over his head. i do not believe barry to be honest or have good intentions. i wouldn’t vote for either. ymmv.

    1. avatar GS650G says:

      Both were/are in over their heads. Carter actually had more experience as a governor, a Navy man, and businessman than our esteemed law professor.

    2. avatar Tominator says:

      I lived and worked during Carter.

      On huge difference, though you’ve pinned it, was that during the Carter years jobs were plentiful. I always had other job offers and had a 2nd job much of the time.

      There are no jobs in Obama’s America.

      Carter could only meander about mucking small things up but Obama has made a huge mess out of the economy.

      Hats off to Palmetto! I love their ‘in your face’ attitude…..maybe a presidential ceremony of some type is in order?

  4. avatar Sam C says:

    This seems a little childish to me.

    1. avatar Moonshine7102 says:

      Maybe. Whattaya say we let the market decide?

      1. avatar Felix says:

        I see you didn’t make the same response to those who applaud this lower.

        I also see he said nothing about whether anyone else should like or hate it, or that he wanted to take it off the market.

        A bit techy this a.m., are yee?

  5. avatar APBTFan says:

    I like it and think the insinuations are well done especially the Hope/Change Safe/Fire bit. Alas as an Arizona native I feel no need to replace my Arizona Armory lower. Good on PSA nonetheless.

  6. avatar Matt in FL says:

    The Hope=Safe, Change=Fire thing made me laugh when I first saw it, and makes me laugh now.

    Still don’t want one, though.

  7. avatar Joe says:

    I’m generally a liberal, although I suppose I’m more of a libertarian (with a small “L”). I can see the parallels between Carter and Obama, and I’m interested to see how the election goes, but I’m not a rabid politico like so many in our community here.

    I generally like Obama, and his policies (that doesn’t mean I’m a fanatic who thinks he’s perfect), so maybe I’ll pick one of these up…although that’s not why they’re made, I suspect.

    1. avatar Totenglocke says:

      As a libertarian, I’d like to ask – what policies do you like? Other than Obamacare, I can’t even think of any policies that liberals like.

      1. avatar Swarf says:

        We don’t like Obamacare either. Obamacare is all of the Republican ideas from the last healthcare debate/mess repackaged with a D in front of them. It’s a crap giveaway of taxpayer money to the insurance companies. Business as usual.

        As to this lower, it’s shit like this that gives people ammunition (as it were) to call all gun owners whack jobs who need to be restricted in order to keep the sane members of society safe. It is also petulant, childish foot stomping in gun form.

  8. avatar brigo50 says:

    If only I was rich enough to buy gag gifts I think my step dad would like it, yet wouldn’t know what it is without all the other things that make it a rifle.

  9. avatar Accur81 says:

    Ballsy, to be sure, but not necessarily in good taste. I can’t imagine BHO responding to this in a positive manner, which is obviously the point. I just don’t which to give the gun grabbers anything to work with.

    That being said, I love my ‘normal’ PSA Magpul MOE lower and continue to order ammo from them.

    1. avatar theaton says:

      Why do so many on the RKABA side seem so intent on walking on egg shells? The left doesn’t need anything to work with. They make stuff up all the time.

      Obama has done more to increase gun sales than anybody I can remember in my lifetime. Why not honor him for that? To quote Michelle Obama, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m proud of Plametto State Armory.” Well, not quite a direct quote but close enough.

      1. avatar Accur81 says:

        I’m just trying to keep the debate classy. Well, mostly classy. I admire PSA for having the stones to make the lower, I just wish there were more positive media outlets for the 2A than TTAG, Calguns, NRA, etc. Winning the Olympic gold is skeet was very cool, but didn’t seem to generate much coverage. The liberal media has been blasting gun ownership for decades (pardon the pun). I can see them slanting this in ridiculous ways. Then again, they do that anyway. So PSA might as well enjoy their freedom while they still have it. As I’ve said, they still have my business and I still have one of their fine lowers.

  10. avatar BlinkyPete says:

    This is idiotic. Wait until one of the talking heads get wind of this – it will be pure cannon fodder for anti’s.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      blinky, chill. they’ll make something up to use against us if they can’t find something. it’s what they do. i’m not going to censor myself in hopes of not giving the anti’s ammo.

      1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

        That’s a logical fallacy, and a weak one – essentially you’re saying two wrongs make a right. The other side will make stuff up, so we should live up to their expectations rather than combat them with logic and factual evidence.

        I understand that this is a gag, and I’m not unchill. It’s just an idiotic gag, and the response is utterly predictable – particularly the “hope/change” bit. I can convince four out of five anti’s that AWB is bullshit, “clip” size doesn’t translate to high body count and that gun control isn’t murder control with ten minutes of level and collected debate. Provocation for no reason is dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

        1. avatar theaton says:

          So free speech is idiotic? You are just as bad as the left. Just because you don’t like somthing means others shouldn’t do it. Did it infinge on your rights?

        2. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          Theaton, you’ve got to be the most pathetic individual I’ve encountered here. Just because someone has the right to say something doesn’t mean you have to agree with it, and disagreeing with something doesn’t mean you’re against free speech. You’re doing just that right now – are you so dense that you can’t see that?

        3. avatar theaton says:

          And there you go again calling names. I’m shocked!

        4. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          Hahahaha… one moment you’re extolling the values of the sacred (and apparently misunderstood) first amendment, the next you’re whining about name calling. Now THAT is shocking.

          And just a note, and more to my point on your other post – I didn’t call you a name. I said you’re pathetic, which is a descriptor, and asked if you’re dense, which is a question.

      2. avatar Not Too Eloquent says:

        BlinkyPete gets the whining Pu$$y of the day award.

        1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

          Thanks man; I’ve always preferred puss to the alternative, but I fully support your lifestyle choice.

          Thanks again!

  11. avatar Don says:

    this is a probably good product for people who think obsolete campaign buttons are valuable and/or interesting and/or not expensive enough.

  12. avatar Rokurota says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is FRIGGIN’ BRILLIANT. Go to the site and look at the lower. Nowhere does it say “Obama,” and it studiously changes the logo enough to avoid copyright infringement. The copy is completely serious. If PSA gets a call from a curious journalist looking to do a hatchet job, they should just read the copy verbatim. Plus, PSA makes good quality stuff at the right price.

    Couple it with a You Didn’t Build That LPK, a Fast and Furious full-auto BCG and a We are the 99% upper and we have a winner.

    1. avatar BlinkyPete says:

      Oh, okay, that’s not so bad then. I mean, the media never draws it’s own conclusions or fills in blanks when it’s convenient to do so, so I’m sure it will be fine.

  13. avatar Ralph says:

    I’d like to get me one of them Obama lowers. Also a Frank Lautenberg Model 1000 round clip and a Carolyn McCarthy thing that goes up.

  14. avatar إبليس says:

    Obama wasn’t exactly on Islam’s side at Khaybar, ya’ dig?

  15. avatar heavy says:

    The hope and change selectors are solid gold. The crescent moon in the logo, not so much. It’s a dog whistle for the (racist) Kenyan/Nigerian/Indonesian moslem manchurian candidate meme. I can and do laugh at the president without making myself into a racist birther toolbag. Apparently PSA can’t.

  16. avatar Luis says:

    “The Obama 2012 lower”….. I love it. It’s delicious irony that a gun parts maker would “honor” Obama by naming a part to be used with a (gasp) “scary looking” gun.

    Next up could be a Holder bullet, in 300 gr., made for .44, .454 and .50 caliber revolvers. Guaranteed to provide stopping power. Or, how about the Sunstein hunting rifle, the .700 caliber Hillary elephant gun, or the Brady flash suppressor?

    Does the Bloomberg/Feinstein universal rifle scope appeal to you?

    Palmetto is on to something. The possibilities are limitless.
