    Huh? I’m usually a fan, Pat, but this one makes no sense at all.

    He’s accusing the NRA of being in favor of gun laws so loose that a person could own their own private artillery piece.

    This is nowhere near the case, though, and so it comes off as nothing more than ignorant alarmism.

    I’m a democrat but I think being able to have guns is good. Maybe the sale of guns with a good background check and some gun safety lessons would help though. And most mentally ill people are not the kind of crazies who will go on shooting sprees. Most are more likely to have anxiety or depression, mild stuff like that.

    Yeah, sort of like the same reaction to the suggestion of implementing reasonable restrictions on the number or rounds a gun can shoot without reloading as “they’re coming to take away all of our guns”.

    COULD people (if it isn’t too much trouble or anything) remember that the NRA used to be in favor of BOTH universal background checks and assault weapons bans? (You can look it up!)

    But we all know Wiki can’t be trusted because ANYONE (Ima?) can edit, right?

    I can go to any number (1,3,10) flea markets, “clubs”, swap meets within 2 hours and have a gun bought and paid for,NO QUESTIONS ASKED! There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to tell the intentions or background of the purchaser. And NO WAY to check under current law!

    Good work Pat, this cartoon may indeed be a repeat, but it still seems very topical and up to date.
    It may be satire, but it’s almost not satirical enough.
