Family Circus? Come on. Doonesbury? D’uh. But Family Circus is as political as Shantal Monique (if slightly more authentic-looking). Well that’s the way it should be. I mean Family Circus should be apolitical. (I wouldn’t mind if Shantal walked back the whole Playboy pneumatic bleached blond thing.) Anyway, “Some of the nation’s best loved cartoonists are calling on Congress to not back down and take action to enact common sense gun laws that will prevent violence and save lives.” A little late there, guys. Saying that, it’s nice to discover cartoonists’ pro-gun control bias well ahead of Christmas book-buying season. Oh, and that’s Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman providing the narration.

    • Make a skit and get it narrated by Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

      That would be hilarious.

      • Could I request “A Family Circus Home Invasion” as an early episode?

        *snort* I’m already picturing the jaunty dotted-line trail showing where the knife-wielding rapist has chased down little Billy’s mom.

        That said, thanks for helping make this gun control ad, Jeff Keane. I didn’t think it was possible to hate you and your dad’s shitty, shitty comic strip any more than I already did, but damned if you didn’t manage to ooze under the extremely low bar I’d set for you. Good jerb!

    • What did you expect, a fair airing of contradictory opinions? That, to a totaliliberal, is like holy water to a vampire.

    • I guess they aren’t concerned about my pro-gun/ pro-freedom / pro-concealed carry / shooting the bad guy before he shoots multiple victims opinion. Because they have “common sense.”

    • I was going to write out a lengthy comment about how their campaigns always appeal to the viewers emotions rather than their reasonable, logical side, but comments were disabled. I guess I should thank them. These cowardly gun-grabbers are saving me from early onset carpal-tunnel syndrome.

  1. Waving the bloody shir…I mean sneaker again. Hollywood hypocrites can FOAD! Hopefully printed comics go the way of the dinosaur and the newspapers they are printed on. Disgusting

  2. Ah Doonesbury…that two inches of the comics section I religiously skipped in favor of the actual fun stuff as a kid. Because that’s what every child wants to read in his jammies on Sunday morning, leftist fascist political commentary.

    And Family Circus, which has all the depth of the gun-grabbers’ logical extension…that is to say, none. Another one I skipped as a kid. Seriously, how does one create a comic so vapid and corny that a 6 year old rolls his eyes at it.

    Then again, a six year old kid raised in a liberty-minded household is already more mature than a leftist will ever be.

  3. From the cartoon of the gun “scale”, it looks like they want to weight the needs of children against… the secret service? Maybe Bloomberg’s security detail?

  4. How many more vague, feel-good videos from people who don’t have a clue what they’re talking about?

  5. Ask Shantal if she will send you a thong to wear as around your neck at the next three gun. FN won’t mind and you would win or swoon.

  6. Oddly enough, I haven’t read any of these for many years. Doonesbury is the worst, and was first to be put on ignore, sometime around 1980. I would recommend taking a look at Day by Day, and Hope n Change cartoons.

  7. This makes me long for the time when my favorite cartoon showed L’il Abner drilling Daisy Mae Yokum on top of the hayrick.

    • And the Shmoos! Obama forgot to mention the Shmoos but I know he’s got them! They’ve got to be in the same place the free cell phones come from!

      He’s holding out on us!

  8. I was going to say something that probably only I would find profound, then I saw Ms. Monique.
    What were we talking about again?

  9. Because the artist for “The Fanily Circus” should be our go-to guy for firearms policy advice….

    Good grief.

  10. When we all saw Lucy pull the football from Charlie Brown, we all know she would grow up to be a gun grabber too!

    Elmer J. Fudd, as clueless about gun control legislation as he was about how to catch the rabbit!

    So sad they need to bring cartoons into the fight too.

    Honestly, with all the BS being funded by MAIG, I wonder how many do not really give a sh!t but happy to take Bloombergs money just the same.

  11. “Comments are disabled for this video.”
    “Ratings have been disabled for this video.”

    The difference between public discourse and propaganda is the silencing of opposing views.

      • Hey, he created Sheep in the Big City, he’s perfect for Bloomberg.

        Ho ho, nice! I’m gonna need a glass of milk to go with that Zinger.

    • That one hit me where it hurt. I mean, I’m not surprised, but I’m not happy about it.

      That said, I’ll keep buying Mo Willems books, and at this point I don’t buy them for my kids in as much as I buy them so I can read them to them.

      Pigeon Wants a Gun featuring Duckling.

  12. Hey cartoonist numbnuts, we did demand action. That’s why your shit anti-gun bills got shut down.

    Now please, how about giving it a rest. The lies. The half-truths. The melodrama. The obfuscation.

    Enough.

    And I’ll tell you, if I had seen Darby Conley in with all these other losers I would’ve lost complete faith in humanity.

    • “And I’ll tell you, if I had seen Darby Conley in with all these other losers I would’ve lost complete faith in humanity.”

      You beat me to it! You have good taste Fritz, I believe you have also mentioned once your love for the DeSantis Speed Scabbard.

  13. There was some comedian who did a bit on the comics page that ended “…and there in the corner is Family Circus… just waiting to suck.”

    Seems apropos.

  14. Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman have both been in movies using guns and doing bad things with those guns.
    PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH, STOP PROFITTING FROM PORTRAYING VIOLENCE OR STFU.

  15. Family Circus creator Bill Keane is rolling over in his grave. He loved freedom. Apparently those in charge of his estate do not. Good Lord know they love public money, though, as they are currently pleading for gobs of public money in Paradise Valley, AZ, for the public to pay for a bronze in Bill’s honor. They certainly don’t care about their dad enough to pay for it themselves.

  16. you notice that the comment section on you tube is disabled and it was put together by MAIG Coalition. They knew before hand all of the shit storm of 2nd Amendment supporters would post there.
