States United to Prevent Gun Violence – a self-professed “grassroots network of 30 state affiliates working to make our communities and families safer” – was last seen setting up a fake gun store in New York City to sell their message of civilian disarmament. An illegal operation to which New York City authorities turned a blind eye. Their latest “caper” . . .
Is this pro-gun? Anti-gun? Or just plain stupid. In any case, I’m glad that the zombie gun marketing trend is dead. You?
My main squeeze and I saw Batman v Superman [not shown] last night. I wasn’t mortally offended by it. Suffice it to say, the Affleck-affected flick wasn’t quite as silly as the Batman comic lovingly deconstructed above. I wouldn’t recommend it. But I wouldn’t not recommend it either. SPOILER ALERT. The Caped Crusader uses plenty o’ guns, although only one of the Dark Knight’s guns is his own. Still, it’s a bit jarring to sit the Bat wielding a .45. In a good way. Yes?
There are those who believe that gun control can stop “dangerous people” from getting guns. Now I’m not saying Twist the Balloon Man is a dangerous person, although there is such a thing as globophobia. Nor am I inviting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires) to classify a balloon gun as a prohibited AOW (Any Other Weapon). But anyone who believes that gun control will stop dangerous people from possessing guns fails to understand just how easy it is to make one. In short, you can’t stop the signal. But you can, on occasion, stop a dangerous person. With a gun.
“’The Daily Show’ took a disturbing turn on Tuesday night when Trevor Noah did a segment on the new law that the Iowa state House is working to pass allowing children under 14 to have handguns,” rawstory.com reports, intentionally misrepresenting the bill. As Raw Story previously reported, “The bill would allow anyone under the age of 14 to handle handguns under adult supervision, with no age limit.” But facts are but a minor inconvenience to the antis. And, as they say, you don’t cut funny. As above. Lke this . . .
