Check out what's in issue #4 of IDW's The Other Dead comic:
Yep, that's Boss Obama saying "I only said they (guns) should be properly regulated ... I never said I couldn't shoot one." But is that true?
Just as with his statements on ObumbleCare ("If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare") and just about anything else President Lemon says, Boss Obama talks a good game. Ever since his initial run for the presidency, he's said the "right" things ... like in the above panel. But look at this questionnaire from Obama's run for state senate back in 1996. Scroll to the last page. Question #35 asks "Do you support state legislation to: a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Obama's answer? Yes. When he ran for president, he had denied he answered thusly, blaming it on a staffer. (Boy, that sounds familiar.) Except that, if you look at the first page of the questionnaire, Obama's own handwriting can be seen.
If anyone still believes what comes out of this president's mouth now, well, let's just say that (to paraphrase Marvel Comics) you're a true believer.

Indeed, that panel gave me a chuckle, to be sure. Obama has always been anti-gun. And not surprising to see the independent comics companies sugarcoating Obama and his presidency.
I know their Godzilla title, which is supposed to be about giant monsters beating the crap out of each other, has an Obama analogue President who's always depicted as being right and has a straw man version of Rick Perry as the Governor of Texas. And there's the obligatory depiction of southerners as being one-dimensional racists, etc.
I tried and wanted to like the Godzilla comic... *sigh*
Actually I'm annoyed because the writing on the panel should be obvious (unless you're looking to shoehorn in politics).
Let's play a game! Make up your own or vote for replacements!
"I thought you were anti-guns..."
1) "I'm anti-zombie more."
2) "These former constituents have changed my mind."
3) "I know. Must be the end of the world, eh?"
4) "Well now might be time for a well regulated militia."
5) "My position's evolved."
1) "Let's go apply the 2nd amendment..."
2) "Hey zombies! Got your healthcare right here!" (take two and stay down)
3) "I'm about to go full stereotype on their rotted asses."
4) "As I said at the start of my dissertation: 'Prepare to have your mind blown'."
