    Some whacko is not going to put an explosive on the evil pipe when it is built?

    A disagreement? more guns.
    A conflict? more people with guns.
    Lose the argument? pull out all the stops, this means war.

    Society sure has made progress since the stone age.

    My private militia has more guns than yours does, so now I get to make the law in America.

    The right wingers want to arm everyone?
    I remember when the armed Black Panthers walked into the capitol building in Sacramento, the right wingers went nutz.

    Maybe this time. Next time the hippies will learn to shoot straight.

    Unfortunately, that would be the likely result. In this country, Rightie demonstrators can bring guns, beat up lefties, carry signs which viciously (even racially) abuse the President, whatever. Were a Lefty to bring a gun to a demonstration, there would indeed be carnage.
    That’s life in America, folks. Always has been.

    Incidentally, the Feds “backed down” in the Bundy situation to avoid casualties. The unfortunate effect of that will be to encourage more gun-totin’ wingnuts at future demonstrations and ‘actions’ against the government.
    And again, there’s that hypocrisy. I saw a picture of a Rightie sniper stretched out on a bridge and aiming at the demonstration. Is that guy in jail? Is there any doubt a Leftie wouldn’t be, under the same kind of circumstances? In jail, or DEAD.

    Wayne LaPierre gave us the ludicrous formulation that the ONLY way to stop a bad man with a gun is with a good man with a gun. This way lies madness…and lots and lots of gunfire.

    I’ve notice a lot of madness in America lately.That’s what happens when a John Birch family is worth over $100 billion dollars.

    Yep. I simply cannot believe that if Cliven Bundy had been black he would have gotten any support from right wing anti-America nut-jobs.

    Madness as the bad guy fires first. Lots of gun fire for about 30 seconds. Then it stops as the multiple good guys stop shooting at the neutralized bad guy.

    YOUR scenario has one bad guy shooting dozens of unarmed good guys before killing himself when the police finally arrive tens of minutes later.

    We’ve tried it your way dozens of times. It doesn’t work. Let’s try it our way and see how it plays out. I am thinking that the net number of innocent people killed will be much lower our way.

    Or we could try not shooting at all.

    There really isn’t any need to divide them into various sub-groups of nut-jobs. The majority of humanity is composed of nut-jobs. It’s just the way it has always been. Everything is a Major Deal and there is always outrage and righteous indignation and a need to control, silence or destroy others. The Way of I is always the only good way.
    But if you really like the music, go ahead and dance. Everybody else does.

    this cartoon is wrong on so many levels that it is hard to know where to begin.

    It was reported that the brave, brave militia guys put the women up front. Inspired by the Taliban?

    It’s a nice fantasy, fueled by too many bad cop shows.
    Even cops, trained to shoot under pressure, hit their targets perhaps one time out of twenty. Bullets go somewhere. They don’t just vanish because they don’t hit their target.
    How much worse, then, are amateurs shooting because they THINK they can take the guy out with one shot?
    YOUR scenario has any number of innocent by standards slain with no guarantee that the bad guy would even get hit. It’s like the old joke of the idiot’s firing squad: in a circle around the victim.
    MY scenario works quite well, thank you. There’s a reason why the US has an appalling handgun death rate, a thousand times that of the UK.
