If my aging memory is correct, I’ve only posted a couple of Chuck Asay cartoons on concealed carry (here and here) and one Steve Kelley cartoon mocking the leftist tendency to focus on inanimate objects when a bad guy uses a gun.
So it’s time to correct this oversight.
And with Obama proposing a bunch of executive orders on guns, this Scott Stantis cartoon is very timely.
After all, who cares about the Constitution and the democratic process!
And here’s a cartoon with the same theme found in this poster.
Now let’s shift to a couple of cartoons that look at causes of death, starting with one from Michael Ramirez that shows that so-called “assault rifles” are a statistical asterisk (and no more dangerous than other types of guns).
And here’s a specific comparison for 2011. Obviously we need hammer control.
While all these cartoons are amusing, the attack on our Second Amendment rights is not funny.
In my poll on protecting the right to keep and bear arms, a plurality of respondents said the Second Amendment was worth preserving so people had some ability to resist tyranny.
I personally think that the risk of societal breakdown is a more pressing concern, as I explained in this interview on NRA TV.
But all that really matters is that we all agree that freedom is worth defending. So let’s close with this inspirational powerpoint presentation on the Second Amendment.
