Gun cartoon of the day

MothersBestArgument

This certainly isn’t the way the cartoonist intended it but when I saw this I thought, “I’m all for saner gun laws. Guns are how mothers protect their children.”

If the cartoonist had realized people would so drastically misinterpret it would they have expressed it like this? I assume they would not. If this assumption is true then doesn’t that say something about the mind of the cartoonist?

They must have difficulty in comprehending the mindset of others, right? Is that the type of person who should be driving our public policies? I say no. If they can’t comprehend there even exists another viewpoint how can they possibly weigh the pros and cons of an issue? They can only be advocates for their narrow-minded views.

  1. Interesting. I have 2 beautiful, healthy, well-loved daughters whose very lives were made possible by the fact that their father had a gun and was able to use it without the state interfering.

    Saner gun laws would be fewer gun laws, so I agree, right?

  2. If it could save the life of just one child, shouldn’t we all carry guns all the time?

    “Saner” in this sense I suppose means “that which agrees with me”. That’s certainly the old Soviet model. If you disagree with whatever the heads of state are saying today, it can only be because you are insane.

    • Indeed. That is the argument for banning many things that in prior years were common, including allowing children to ride in the front seat of cars, or indeed in cars at all without an expensive age- and size-appropriate child seat that you hope your child will out grow before it is recalled.
