    Kids stories do get updated over time. Not sure I like where this one is going, though.

    It’s already there, I’m afraid.

    Come on now: don’t be cynical! The NRA says when we have MORE guns peace will descend on kindergartens, churches and movie theaters like MAGIC. We just don’t have ENOUGH fire power yet.

    never had any kids can someone explain this panel without bringing the NRA into it? Thanks PS it is not magic sir it is hard and expensive to become proficient with a Handgun. If you choose to own and carry one you are putting a lot on the line. I view an armed and trained citizen like fire hydrants when you need one you hope it is close by.

    The cartoon is about the stupid proliferation of guns in American society. Guns kill their owners at far higher rates than they kill “evil doers.” See the recent volunteers guarding military recruitment centers — already two accidental discharges, thank God no one was hurt. Keep guns away from me, please, especially in the hands of self-styled neighborhood watchers.

    Actually it’s Chekhov and not Tolstoy.

    “Remove everything that has no relevance to the story. If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it’s not going to be fired, it shouldn’t be hanging there.”
    —Anton Chekhov

    125 school shootings since Newtown, but the GOP focused on Benghazi, and repealing the ACA, not on jobs, or protecting our children. everytown.org

    Goodnight Moon is a classic children’s book usually read to them before bedtime.


    It starts as the cartoon says, but without the handgun.


    And I’d love to be able to discuss guns without the NRA, but the NRA has inserted themselves into every gun discussion, Trumpeting that Obama is coming to take your guns! — or whoever wants gun safety.


    Kind of like trying to have a discussion about income tax reform without Grover Norquist.

    The FBI says 90% of gun deaths are criminals shooting other criminals,police or their would be victims shooting criminals.The rest are the ones the news nerds make political .They say if they can save 1 life their new and more restrictive laws will be worth it.But the same people don’t want to put and keep thugs in jail.Operation Exile cost to much Holder and Obama claimed.A federal program where people convicted of using a gun to commit a crime were sentenced to federal prison,and had to serve all that time before they began to serve their state time for the crime committed.
    How many black folks were shot by other black folks in Chicago yesterday?The lefty news nerds never say crap about that sort of thing.The Al Sharptons of the world don’t say anything either.
    Why is that?

    Kima on The Wire reading to her son: “Goodnight Moon. Goodnight Stars. Good night Popos (police cars). Goodnight hoppers. Goodnight corner boys.” Sad, but very effective.

    " I view an armed and trained citizen……"


    That’s our main problem in this country. There are to many guns, but to few of those….

    Could somebody else take a turn at dealing with the same old crap from the usual wing nut?
