Build Your Own Joe Wilson Commemorative “You Lie” Assault Rifle!

Screen capture from Palmetto State Armory website, showing Joe Wilson endorsing the assault rifle component made in honor of his outburst against President Obama.

As we learn on Huffington Post, Palmetto State Armory in South Carolina is “honoring” Joe Wilson for his disruption of Obama’s health care address to a Joint Session of Congress in September, 2009.  From the website of the armory:

Palmetto State Armory would like to honor our esteemed congressman Joe Wilson with the release of our new “You Lie” AR-15 lower receiver. These lowers are the same great quality you have come to expect from Palmetto State Armory and feature “You Lie” as the first six digits of the serial number. Only 999 of these will be produced, get yours before they are gone!

These forged lowers are made using high quality 7075-T6 aluminum and are marked “MULTI” to accommodate most builds.  Finish is Black Hardcoat Anodize.

What is a “lower reciever”? It’s a key component in assembling your own AR-15, one of the most popular semiautomatic rifles around.

Nope, right-wing rhetoric in response to the health care bill has nothing to do with violence and is not at all related to guns.

And look!  If you go to the home page of Palmetto State Armory, you can listen to an endorsement by Glenn Beck!
