    No, guns being used on innocent bystanders in large numbers is what drives us insane.

    I am sure that is what the British Monarchy called the Founding Fathers too.

    Odd that Benson should base the cartoon on the Life Magazine photo of Lee that appeared to be tampered with.

    Recently in Utah…two boys dead…slaughtered,shot by their fifteen year old brother. Utah, where cigarettes are currently being considered for a law restricting use to those over age 21, similar to alcohol restriction, but where gun use is encouraged among youngsters,

    The usual straw man arguments coming from the right. There are a few liberals who want to ban all guns, but most of us believe the Second Amendment gives us the right to have guns for protection, sport & hunting.

    What is insane, is that even the most reasonable attempt to have universal background checks or waiting periods, is met with utter contempt & rejection. The idea isn’t to ban guns, just make it harder for criminals & crazies to get them. Local gun laws are useless when guns are easily bought over a border.

    The NRA is the biggest threat to the Second Amendment.Their fundamentalist interpretation makes overturning it seem like the only course.

    @Uncle Joe

    You’re complaining of straw man arguments on a toon that uses a straw man argument that if guns were illegal a motivated communist assassin wouldn’t have been able to procure a firearm?

    The “crazies”, especially in mass shootings, are the extreme minority of homicides and gun deaths. Regulation, like sound background checks, knowing who DOES qualify for having weapons or “concealed carry” because they ARE sane, and non-criminal, is used in NewZealand and other places, and isn’t a bad idea. It does NOT equal seizing all firearms.


    With the number of firearms in the system, it IS difficult to put the cat back into the bag, but continuing to just release more unrestrained cats onto the streets, is NOT the answer.


    Oswald found it easy to buy a junk, cheap weapon, and it really isn’t much harder today, to lay hands on a much deadlier weapon, if you just have the money.

    Oswald used an obsolesent 6.5mm Mannlecher Carcano carbine, a WW 2 Italian weapon with a 5 (five) round magazine and bolt action. Even in California and Massachuttes such a rifle is legal.

    Thinking that banning guns will stop crazy people is insane.

    Funny, none of the gunnuts has a Scientific American backing THEIR views.

    NOTHING can prevent ANYONE from getting a gun. The only thing tat stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Gun free zones sure as hell do not.
