  1. Thats funny! (Proportionally my revolver is a little larger, but a good likeness none the less.)
    And if they want to know how we see them? Go look at the new secretary in charge nuclear waste. That joke drew itself!
    And these morons want to be taken seriously?

    • Yikes! Looking at a few of those photos, one might think that perhaps the new secretary spent a few too many days sleeping next to strong gamma emitters.

      • Thinking it’s a “desperate cry for help” seems lacking on that one.
        Methinking there might have been a little child abuse in that one’s life. But no reason to take it out on the rest of us. Even visually.
        Sorry Defens, I shouldn’t do that to people.

  2. Suppose, for the moment, that’s true.

    So what? Why should I care? Much of it doesn’t like me anyway. Screw ‘em.

    • A lot of people care about other people think. Many, many books have been written about it. The most recent one I read was Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect. I found it a very interesting book. I think that as I get older, I care less and less about what people think of me. Or at least I care less about what large groups of people think. My “tribe” (a few friends and some family) is still important, but random people on the Internet are nice if they think well of me and forgotten about in a minute or less if they don’t.

      I can see the whole social thing being hard wired from evolutionary pressure being important when you are young. This explains why peer pressure and being a social outcast are so important to teenagers and younger.

  3. Having it built in does reduce some of the risks of appendix carry I suppose. But limits your field of fire significantly. Unlike those that think body mutilation is uplifting and cool, I think I’ll just retain my current organs and carry supplemental armory in a holster.

  4. It doesn’t explain, or even address, why the authoritarians want us disarmed. Nor does it explain why the American founders thought it important to include the right to keep and bear arms in the Bill of Rights. Nor does it explain what we’re supposed to do if we’re attacked by violent criminals.

    And so it becomes clear that this sort of propaganda comes from a pro-authoritarian, pro-criminal mindset.

    • Sure it explains it. It tells us that these authoritarians want to cut off our genitals if they don’t like our attitude.

    • Right, except for the fact that they apply those freedoms only to their own kind, not to us. In this they are no different from the oppressors you fled.
