Default Citizen Of The Year Suggestions??

OK, Obama is looking for nominations for the 2013 Presidential Citizens Medal, nominations close on March 31st. Typically these go to some community activist or other progressive shill. I am trying to think of somebody in the firearms community (the "Gun Culture" if you will) to nominate and would appreciate some suggestions. I already thought of Ronnie Barrett, but he would not qualify. Here are the requirements:

Quote:
In order for an individual to be considered for the Medal:

Nominees must be citizens of the United States, as required by the 1969 Executive Order.
The nominee’s service must have been performed outside of their regular job.
All questions on this form must be fully answered.
Nominations must be received by Sunday, March 31, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
If we all can agree on a nominee, we can submit it that nomination here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/citizensmedal/submit-a-nomination

Requires Citizenship Huh...

Well that rules out Obama... My idea would be for the gun community to nominate him as gun salesman of the year... It's "outside" his regular job of playing golf and embarrassing the United States... And no one can deny his effective at it.

Tack

He was my first thought, but the Socialist in Chief never even gave him a mention when he was murdered. But of course he had the flags lowered to half mast when that crack ho' Whitney Houston overdosed.

If not the late C. Kyle, then anybody who would have the honor to turn their back on the president, the white house, and this award.
