    These are getting dumber by the day. I think both sides of this have exhausted their material.

    Admittedly an exaggeration, but that is the way of political comics. But there is always at least some truth behind such comics, whether they are right or left leaning. And if you actually listen to the likes of Wayne Lapirre, you would see that there is at least there is more truth to this cartoon than reasonable people would like to see!!

    Not even sure it would be alternative. But… what about hipsters? “I shot people before it was cool”.

    You don’t seem to realize that the larger the clip the more chance you have of fighting off Obama, the U.S. Government, the United Nations, and the Chinese Army when they come to your house to take away the guns that God and the Founding Fathers have given you.

    I lost 5 points of IQ just reading this cartoon. I haven’t seen a cartoon by this artist worth reading yet.
    Can’t wait to see how much IQ some of my ‘friends’ here think I have left. ;)
    Fortunately, being one of the hicks from the sticks of Bayou country, I’m not held to a high standard.
    and that joke is better than anything Sorensen has produced since coming to the Editorials.
    & facetiously,

    That is because there is no such thing and the wackos are the ones who flunked history and are the anti-gun nuts.

    The NRA has released a new app for those 4 and up that has them shoot an assault weapon at coffins. Time for those members who understand this to be abhorrent to resign their memberships.

    A good dissection of gun zealot “logic.” Well done, Sorensen.

    I think this is another ’toon where the point is lost in gross exaggeration.

    I wonder if “No Such Agency” is picking up on any of y’alls
    “march on Washington with our hunting rifles” rhetoric

    yeh, that’s the thing I don’t get.
    These beer swilling, aging good ol’ boys think they can collect a bunch of automatic weapons and lots of bullets and think they can repel a determined assault from Seal Team Six.

    “These beer swilling, aging good ol’ boys think ….”

    Seriously? Yes. There comes a point where shear weight of numbers would overwhelm them.

    I saw Honey Boo Boo for the first time this week — for about ten minutes, then I had to turn it off. Tell me, is American culture simply turning into the celebration of idiocy?

    When I read Mickey’s words, I saw frustration with the quality of the debate, not a boredom with how long it has gone on. These cartoonists have a powerful tool and a network. An editorial cartoonist brought down “Boss” Tweed’s political machine.
    I may be projecting, since I would like to see people made to open their minds and think rather than just pick a side. An article by JAMA, a medical journal, showed how when people smile, the connections between the left and right hemisphere’s of the brain open and it functions at a higher level. Did your best teachers make you smile or…?
    A more recent study shows smiling and laughing releases endorphins to improve your health, and a really good belly laugh burns calories.
    I enjoy the cartoons best when I can smile AND think.
    note-Saw a commercial for that poor child you mentioned. sad…just sad.

    “Time to stop paying attention to the problem and get back to Honey Boo Boo.”
    My comment is purely on what I (and I alone) see as the creativity involved in the cartoon. The media today works on the principal of quantity over quality and as far as peoples attention span to these issues? You are absolutely correct, America will do little of substance until there is some other outrageous action. A new crises almost weekly creates a short attention span. Then there will be outrage and calls for immediate action, politicians fighting for media attention so they can get on the “right side of the issue.” Pardon me if I sound cynical, I am. I had never heard of “Honey Boo Boo” but I guess I lead a sheltered life.
    IMO, we are a self indulgent, violent culture that has no more frontiers to conquer, and maintains our quest for bloodsports with football, hockey, mixed martial arts boxing, WWW, hunting etc. I know many find that repugnant but that is exactly the reason why it is such a hard fought battle to implement any regulation on firearms. The assault rifle was popularized by Hollywood and the Chuck Norris and Sly Stallone movies of the 70’s. Americans love the movies and they love the guns. It is one part of my belief that we are the modern day Rome. Better not to go down that road. You’re the philosopher, I’m just an accounting and finance instructor and I generally drop out early from the deep philosophical discussions.
    Actually, as a teacher and a person considered at least marginally intelligent by my peers, it saddens me to know that Americans watch that kind of tripe (reality TV). I don’t watch much TV and if I do it’s pretty boring stuff like the History Channel, PBS, Turner Classic Movies, How Stuff Works, C-Span, etc. Of course people don’t read anymore either. I almost felt the need to console one of my students when I suggested he go to the library and find a book I was discussing. He looked at me with a forlorn expression and asked, “It’s not online? The library, really?”
