Need a Good Way to Explain Gun Control? This Cake Will Help by Luis Valdes | Sep 25, 2018 | 33 comments facebook twitter linkedin email This illustrated guide to gun control is sheer brilliance. Created jointly by LawDogFiles (text) and HSGCA. comments Green Mtn. Boy says: September 25, 2018 at 17:07 Brillant ! No More Compromise Ever. Reply Bearpaw says: September 25, 2018 at 17:26 Yawn. Guns etc. are always in flux just as guns and gun accessories are. Bumpstocks could not be in question last century. Nor could tanerite, incendiary rounds, and Magul HC mags. If you want to lock in the now, I assume the gun controllers would love a yes on that. But if you can open your minds and get with the program you might discover a parallel evolution in both the gun options and the gun resistance. Fighting history is a losing battle. Time to move forward rather than stand the collective ground. Reply Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says: September 25, 2018 at 18:23 “Fighting history is a losing battle. Time to move forward rather than stand the collective ground.” That’s what court-packing is for. And we are well on our way… Reply Green Mtn.

California Richard says: September 25, 2018 at 18:11 com·pro·mise Verb 1. settle a dispute by mutual concession. “in the end we compromised and deferred the issue” synonyms:meet each other halfway, come to an understanding, make a deal, make concessions, find a happy medium, strike a balance; give and take “we compromised” 2. accept standards that are lower than is desirable. “we were not prepared to compromise onsafety” They want us to do definition #2 by making it sound like definition #1.

Reply frank speak says: September 28, 2018 at 01:58 too late!…it’s been nibbled away by those who feel “we have to do something”…. Reply D says: September 25, 2018 at 17:09 Gun control is the PERFECT IQ test!!! Passing it takes the ability to research, reason and think. Three things libtards can’t do. Reply Green Mtn. Boy says: September 25, 2018 at 17:19 Speaking of cakes, how about a gay wedding Gun Rights cake,with AR’s and AK’s on it from a bakery in Boston or Berkley,yeah that’s the ticket. Reply Pacer says: September 25, 2018 at 17:23 Same with a “Discussion.” Nothing is ever a discussion. Reply Geoff "Mess with the Bull, get the Horns" PR says: September 25, 2018 at 18:24 “Conversation” is the word you’re looking for… Reply Pacer says: September 26, 2018 at 15:47 That’s a better one. My favorite is “We need to have a National Conversation…” I think Obama started that when he took office. It’s like a soft lead-in before they tell you what they plan on taking. Reply MeRp says: September 25, 2018 at 17:28 This totally misses out on the whole “but that cake is really just meant to feed the troops, and they are all fed directly by the Federal government now, so you don’t need the cake” argument. Reply Green Mtn. Boy says: September 25, 2018 at 18:57 “but that cake is really just meant to feed the troops, and they are all fed directly by the Federal government now, so you don’t need the cake” argument.” One might ask themselves that if they were a Leftard Moron,however Heller put a end to that fallacy,the right of the People. Reply Kenneth says: September 27, 2018 at 10:13 That’s not a debate, not even an argument. Its just some silly sod saying: “but the State does everything for me and for all others. Why bother? With anything? Unless I’m told to by the TV, OFC.” “Hunny bunny, is American Gladiators on?” Reply Ansel Hazen says: September 25, 2018 at 17:32 Should be a mailer sent to every politician. I don’t expect they will read it but at least we could say we told you so when they come for our guns and we don’t give them up. Reply frank speak says: September 28, 2018 at 02:01 It’s not going to happen all at once…it’s an incremental process designed to pick you off one at a time… Reply Kenneth says: September 28, 2018 at 17:38 Sheriff Mack and his CSPOA already did that. Passed out books to every Sheriff of every county in the USA informing them of their rights and duties as a Sheriff, and how to fulfill them. And, you guessed it, few indeed bothered to read it or take any notice. Reading is just so…. last century, ya know???? Why should I read when I have a TV? Anyway, if he can’t even get noticed with that technique at the county level, good luck with the beltway…. because you’ll need it. Badly. Reply skoon says: September 25, 2018 at 17:36 The cake is a lie. Reply Salty Bear says: September 26, 2018 at 21:18 You just keep on trying Till you run out of cake And the Science gets done And you make a neat gun Reply Ing says: September 25, 2018 at 17:36 This is great. Too bad the text is so hard to read… Reply dph says: September 25, 2018 at 17:43 The original text. No cartoons. http://thelawdogfiles.blogspot.com/2010/09/ok-ill-play.html Reply Ing says: September 25, 2018 at 18:30 Dang, that’s even harder to get through. None of the people we’d want to read it are likely to power their way through the poor presentation. Maybe I’ll exercise my (admittedly rudimentary) design skills and see if I can make a version where the text doesn’t give people headaches. Reply Pg2 says: September 25, 2018 at 17:40 That’s great. It was never about compromise or safety. That should be clear to anyone who can fog a mirror. Reply vvactor says: September 25, 2018 at 17:44 can someone make this a single image i can save? Reply The Original JohnO says: September 25, 2018 at 18:05 I can. How can it get it to you? Contact me at bosbison at frontiernet dot net Reply Ing says: September 25, 2018 at 18:33 It already is one. I don’t know what the procedure is if you’re on a phone, but on a computer you just right-click on it and choose “save image.” Good to go. Or someone could email it to you. 🙂 Reply TheOriginal JohnO says: September 26, 2018 at 23:20 It’s actually five separate images. I inferred VV wanted it in a single file. Reply Kenneth says: September 28, 2018 at 17:52 Can find it as one file here: https://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2013/11/08/cake-and-compromise-illustrated-guide-to-gun-control/ Reply American Patriot says: September 25, 2018 at 19:15 No More Compromising! Time to go Native on their A$$es, don’t need a $200 tax stamp for a crossbow & they are quieter than a suppressor. (just my thoughts) Reply Buddy says: September 26, 2018 at 07:51 The problem with this analogy. The antigunners have the same “rights” (cake?) the progunners have, but they’ve chosen to toss their rights (cake) into the garbage because THEY didn’t like it. NOW, they want you to throw away YOUR rights (cake) because THEY didn’t like (want?) THEIR cake! It’s selfish jealousy! If I don’t want mine, you can’t have yours! Reply Ken says: October 9, 2018 at 11:59 Right on the money. The cartoon should have shown the gun rights people tossing their cake in the trash and then asking for our cake. They can starve to death while I hunt. Reply Pete says: September 26, 2018 at 19:37 It’s an older meme sir, but it checks out.
