    Yup, the NRA has drawn a bead on common sense. They’ll fire at anyone who dares propose it. And the cowards of GOP kneel down and lick’s the NRA’s boots. No editor would accept a fiction story so unbelievable as what is happening in DC right now. Yet it’s true. It is actually true. It will be our ruin as a nation.

    Well, you have to give Congress some credit for staying bought.

    Or staying sane for once in the midst of emotional kneejerk reaction.

    Nice detail.

    In fairness, he does not single out the GOP here. Rather, he posits that the NRA has both houses nicely wrapped up and well manipulated, regardless of party.

    Howie, I enlarged the toon to read it clearly. Didn’t see anything about the GOP, just what cdward commented on.

    Gee rick.
    If barry and eric did their jobs, this would not be a problem. The prosecutions of this admin.are down 40% for the last 4 yrs. For firearms.
    The doj has never charged anyone with violating the “instant background check” law.
    And eric let a couple of armed blackpanthers go when they intimidated white voters in Philly. After they were convicted. Let them go free. No jail…..WTF.
    Whitey can’t vote anymore????

    By the way. NRA 5 million members. And growing. +1 million new members this year.
    That should tell you something.
    msnbc won’t tell you the truth. Change the channel.

    Maybe Clay is saying. Get used to the Double Barrel Shotgun.
    Approved for use by the US Senate and VP.

    That’s all Freemen will have after this debacle.

    BTW: for the ‘zippies" and “skeptics”, in my local small town paper, in the last three weeks, five folks have been picked up on other charges, and jailed for “convicted felon in possession of a firearm”, and gotten heavy new sentences for THAT offense. The Brady bill has been highly diluted, restricting the DOJ’s ability to deal with the “background check” rule, which BTW, part of that dilution is the fact the Feds can only keep a record for only 24 hours, while the NRA and gun manufacturers can use those “instant checks” to keep sending you material to join the NRA, or buy another weapon!!

    The roughly 300 ACTUAL “gun laws” on the books, which isn’t anywhere close to the thousands the NRA and JBS, and other “radical groups” claim exist, do need to be beefed up some, without necessitating any loss of rights under the Second Amendment, which DEMANDS “Well-regulated” possession of “arms”. (Which, btw, included swords, battle axes, and bayonets, not just “firearms”, which of course were all muzzle loaders at the time, and there were NO “auto loading” pistols or rifles around.)

    “Sure thing. polis, all the Republicans fault. …”

    You miss the point again. The cartoon has House and Senate, or didn’t you look that close. The last I heard, the Senate has a Democrat majority. You might check out Signe Wilkinson’s cartoon too.

    Ok, ok. Howie was talking about another comment, not the cartoon. Still tell me the knee-jerk support for the NRA isn’t overwhelmingly a Republican characteristic. As Wilkinson’s cartoon has it, Democrats are only semi-automatic.

    Tell it to the children of New Town. I’m quite sure they will appreciate YOU right to tote a gun. Oh, wait, they’re dead. Hard to make your point when you’re dead, isn’t it?

    More politically correct “bovine scatology”. It has become de riguer to malign the NRA.

    Well, you have to admit that a shotgun at 30 ft does a lot to discourage those who would enter your house, beat up the old man, and rape his wife which has happened three times in my area. Of course, the anti-gun whiners wil be against all guns until it happens to them, and then watch out! Make way for the left to the nearest gun store!!

    Ihope no-one comes knocking o my door after dark, but just in case the shotgun is nearby.
