The fallacy of the gun lobby


Although I admit that  I’ve never owned one,

They want to convince me to go buy a gun.

Says the NRA, armed,

I won’t likely be harmed.

But  common sense tells me I better own none.

  • The thing I figure is based on a backwards interpretation of a Fox News story. They were laying into the New York Daily News for saying that some San Bernadino victim had it coming because he was a racist NRA member. My reaction was "if we buy the NRA's line, why didn't he defend himself?"

    Speaking of racist gun toters, there was just this Tribune article.

  • Because it was a gun free zone, apparently the terrorist didn't take heed. I'm not sure if it was a pipe bomb free zone, but they didn't heed that either.

    Interestingly enough, we haven't had a condemnation of the terrorists here, though most of the Republican candidates, Bruce Rauner, Dennis Byrne, Dick Cheney, a murdered NRA member, Paul Ryan's beard and a franken-fish have recently made the list.

    As I said on Berkowitz, nobody had then said where Farook got the guns, although things are now pointing to the neighbor, who seems to be either a straw buyer or fellow potential terrorist. Nobody has said where the thousands of rounds of ammo came from.

    A murdered NRA member?

    Jack's first comment of this post, also I forgot George Lucas. Far as the terrorists go, you did mention the lawyers.

    Most of the references are pro or con the NY Daily News column, but I found this from The Daily Mail somewhat ironic:

    In July, the 52-year-old environmental health specialist from New Jersey took to Facebook to slam a proposed bill to tighten gun control in California.

    'This is an INVITATION to MASS MURDER — the BLOODBATH that will follow will be HORRIFIC!!!', he wrote, according to the Daily News
