Rifle Up the Ass


“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

– Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association, in a much-anticipated press conference Friday, the 21st, about the Connecticut school shootings.

With an invisible coon skin cap on his head and the ghost of Charlton Heston looming over him, LaPierre took the expected stance of the NRA: guns don’t kill, people kill.  Ergo, we need more guns.  With 50% of the world’s firearms therefore, the U.S. should be the safest nation on Earth.  Strangely, we’re not.  Like the Republican Party’s attitude towards taxation (giving the wealthiest citizens tax breaks to stimulate jobs), the NRA mantra is a perfect example of insanity: doing the same damn thing over and over, expecting different results.  It would be a hard-fought battle, but I hope the nation has finally come to its senses and will ban assault weapons.  Then, we reasonable-minded folks can tap-dance on Heston’s grave.
