Reply Cliff H says: April 20, 2014 at 20:47 I love the imagery of this poster, but the faux Cyrillic lettering is just silly. Reply Sixpack70 says: April 20, 2014 at 21:51 As someone who can read cyrillic, it kind of hurts my brain. It is still funny though. Reply Layne says: April 21, 2014 at 09:53 I have the same brain hurt every time I drive by a Toys “Ya” Us. Reply Excedrine says: April 20, 2014 at 22:26 This only perfectly illustrates the mentality of the obstructionist civilian disarmament industrial complex. They frame us, each and every one of us who even so much as thinks of guns in anything but a negative light, as the culprit for every single murder and accidental death in America. It is all part of an increasingly futile attempt to mask up the undeniable and incontrovertible fact that it is their own knowingly ineffective and rights-destroying gun control laws that enable their protected criminal class to ply their trade as freely as possible, creating the mayhem and bloodshed they purport to be able to prevent — without which they would cease to exist as social constructs altogether from lack of the necessary fervor that would otherwise be generated amongst the populace. It is literally a modern-day self-fulfilling prophecy; a vicious and sadly self-sustaining cycle of death and destruction. It simply would not exist without gun control laws in the first place, and they lobby only for the continued dis-empowerment of the individual over their otherwise vulnerable protected criminal class so the murders can continue unhindered, thus giving them an air — an illusion, if you will — of credibility and need that is only ever accepted by the willfully ignorant and bigoted. It only dis-empowers women, who are disproportionately the targets of domestic violence. It only dis-empowers the poor, who are often forced to live in crime-ridden, inner-city cesspools. It only dis-empowers racial minorities, who nominally prey on each other and are most at risk for gang violence. It only dis-empowers the LGBT community, which has been repeatedly victimized by unimaginably brutal sexist hate crimes. It only dis-empowers the religious, as they too have often become victims of anti-Semite bigotry. It only dis-empowers the elderly and infirm, who are often incapable of fighting off typically younger, faster, and stronger street thugs. They literally need more innocent men, women, and children to die to justify their very existence, in so doing securing their fat paychecks, and they will go to any length to protect their interests against all those that dare defy them. It is literally indistinguishable from any other sophisticated criminal enterprise, both philosophically and operationally. They will even go so far as to commit murder for their cause, as was the case with the Arapahoe High School murderer, who was in point of fact an uninhibited and immensely proud pro-gun-control Socialist. Pass this on so that the world knows the truth. The real truth. Reply Spunk Monkey says: April 21, 2014 at 07:04 It always bothers me when someone strings a bunch of words together and throws “industrial complex” on the end. It makes it hard to take you seriously, regardless of how valid the rest of your argument is. Really, what industry is involved in the “obstructionist civilian disarmament industrial complex”? Reply JR says: April 21, 2014 at 07:18 If you don’t think contemporary “big government” is not also “big business,” you are missing some key, fundamental aspects of our present cultural reality. Power may not equal money, but each brings the other. Reply Excedrine says: April 21, 2014 at 15:25 @Spunk Monkey — It doesn’t whether you even believe me or not. The fact remains that I am only absolutely, inescapably, and demonstrably correct when I use the term obstructionist civilian disarmament industrial complex. It is in point of fact a multinational cabal of governmental and philanthropic organizations whose sole aim is only to harm our sacred civil rights in every which way they possibly can.

And, remember, that’s the short list. And just for organizations. Every last one of them has repeatedly called for, lobbied for, and offered monetary, material, and academic assistance to the absolutely civil-rights-destroying cause of gun control. As JR rightfully pointed out, there is big business in restricting your natural, fundamental, individual, civil, and Constitutionally-affirmed and protected right to keep AND bear arms — which is not, never has been, and shall never be subject to the democratic process nor to arguments based in social utility. Reply DV says: April 20, 2014 at 23:38 The image and text are fantastic. The font stinks. Reply Bob in Washington says: April 21, 2014 at 00:32 Nice job Justin S. Those that make make negative comments about your poster most likely never will submit one. It conveys the meaning clearly. Reply Fler says: April 21, 2014 at 06:47 Do you ever critique a movie or TV show, even though you’ll never make one? Do you ever critique a novel, though you’ll never write one, etc? Reply Gregolas says: April 21, 2014 at 07:23 Excellent depiction of the irony of the gun-grabbers message. Reply Another Robert says: April 21, 2014 at 11:44 Looks like an example of how the police will protect us from bad guys once we are all disarmed–for our own safety… Reply Chris says: April 21, 2014 at 13:42 FTW. The best and most concise thus far IMO. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
