I found this image above an article in Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitprop media machine, thetrace.org: These 9 States Have the Most Abnormally High Gun Death Rates in America. I have a sneaking suspicion that the study upon which it’s based is the same contextless hokum that the antis create on a regular basis. But there’s too much stats and math and TTAG’s stat and math man Foghorn is teaching TTAG’s resident war hero Jon Wayne Taylor how to fly an airplane. (Two key employees in a small plane…how great is that?) So I’ll leave that and focus on something I’ve noticed about gun control advocates’ anti-gun “art” . . .
They’re pretty good at it!
While the antis think this kind of “gun art” highlights the need for civilian disarmament, a lot of it warms the Second Amendment absolutist cockles of my heart. That image may be photoshopped, but I’d be delighted to put that design in my backyard as a sculpture. By the same token, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership’s “flag guns” — guns painted with the American flag — are a symbol of pride for me. Had one made up exactly to their spec, in fact.
Gun control is a culture war. Hollywood’s pro-gun action hero western sic fi stuff is a bulwark against the antis’ incursions. And so, I believe, is this sort of stuff. Which makes it even better because gun control advocates’ are shooting themselves in the proverbial foot. Yes?
