Now that the United States is nearing the point of one mass shooting incident per day and there are more than enough firearms to give every single person in the country a gun, let’s look a little deeper into the gun lobby’s bumper sticker solutions. Better yet, let’s apply NRA-style solutions to everything!
If we don’t need laws since only law-abiding people obey them, why do we need laws at all? Gasp, it’s true, laws will only be abided by the law-abiding. Ah, language can be such fun when you are arguing with the irrational gun-peddlers of the NRA. This would of course all be much more fun if people weren’t dying on a regular basis in our nation awash in bigger and badder weapons.
But our Founding Fathers! They were so absolute about guns that they wrote the clear-as-mud Second Amendment. Never mind the fact that both Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were part of the crew who banned guns on the campus of the University of Virginia. Those two must not have truly understood the originalist meaning of the very amendment they were involved in writing, poor misguided Fathers. Enjoy the cartoon, and stay safe!
