For one thing, nobody is trying to silence your freedom of speech. I'm only saying that I would not buy so much as a bullet from the company in question because I consider their ad to be an insult to my intelligence and to the office of Commander in Chief of the United States. Worse yet, I think the ad trivializes the horrors committed by the real murderers depicted next to Obama.
You are free to disagree with him, as do I. You are even free to depict him a Hitler, Stalin or even Satan for that matter. You have the right to be shrill, angry, ignorant or anti-American yourself if you want. I consider the ad to be all three, but I accept their right to advertize their product with stupid ads. But, just like the flat tire ad with the big busted model D&DH ran a year or so ago, don't expect free thinking people to sit quietly or spend money on such a company. You have a right to free speech, and so do we. This company has the right to sell guns, and we have the right not to buy them.
My only advice is that you avoid making such comparisons to those who actually survived real genocide or the wars to stop them. Or at least do so at your own risk. My Gramp is gone now but he spent 1944-45 eyeball to eyeball with real Nazi's. He'd slowed down a lot by the time I was grown, but I'd hate to see what he would have done if someone tried to make a buck off of him by playing the Nazi card.
