    If all these people qualify for concealed weapon permits and actually carry, they’ll be a whole lot safer than they are now. Armed law abiding citizens are the worst enemy of the bad guys.

    I wonder if this strip was done before the Arizona shooting, anticipating it, or after, responding to it.

    Since I believe that the Reps in question all said that they would be carrying concealed after the Tucson incident, I would suspect that this was written in response and not before. But what do I know?

    @Coyoty: After, but not long after going by those names.

    Supersurfer, did you read about the armed Safeway customer who heard the gunshots at Rep. Giffords’ event, rushed outside, and came within a hair’s breadth of shooting the heroic innocents who had just disarmed Jared Loughner?

    Sigh.

    Another gun nut leads off.

    Carrying a firearm and being proficient in its use, is no guarantee of safety. The recent shootings in a Detroit police station and the deaths of four police officers in Washington state coffee shop are grim testimony to that. Without sufficient reaction time, all the firearms in the world will not avail you.

    I strongly support gun ownership, but the posturing by the Congressmen that Trudeau mentions is just plain silly. Absent knowledge of a specific threat by a specific individual, any public figure can be assassinated, as long as the assassin is willing to be caught or killed.

    I’m glad to belong to a country with hardly any guns … and no Fox News!

    I’m sure the NRA will be happy to sponsor those representatives.

    And I’m sure the “Brady Bunch” will be happy to punish everyone that DIDN’T DO the Arizona shooting…

    I think this is just slapstick funny-as alot of comics are meant to be. Why??? Because, given the environment of America, these days, we need a good laugh!

    This isn’t a strip about gun laws; it’s a strip about politicians posturing.

    And now lunatic Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) wants to carry his guns on the floor of the House of Representatives. What’s his plan? Pick off Democrats until the R’s have a veto-proof majority? Guns in congress. This must be the new civility I’m hearing so much about.
