Dum-Dums

bitter gun ownersMy heart goes out to the people of Newtown. They didn't deserve the deadly hand that fate dealt them on Friday but it was just their turn.

Yes, their turn.

Until we eliminate access to assault weapons from the general public it's just a matter of time before the next slaughter occurs. Which means that anyone against gun control is perfectly content with large groups of innocent Americans dying in a hail of bullets, whether in school, church, or seats of government. It's just the price gun owners are willing to pay in order to own a toy that goes BOOM.

The boilerplate libertarian view is that the Constitution places no limit on gun ownership, that anything which shoots bullets, preferably thousands per minute, should be at the ready the next time some teenager's music is playing too loud. But the fact of the matter is that the Second Amendment applies only to militias, not to the knuckleheads the NRA panders to.

Speaking of which, I'd like to add that for all the Tea Partier's talk of "watering the tree of freedom with the blood of tyrants" their total lack of action is this regard illustrates what total pussies these gun-loving retards really are. Clearly no amount of armed citizenry will ever have even the slightest effect against a government protected by a trillion-dollar military.

Guns are not the light that leads us out of the darkness of our savage society. They're the things that got us here. So allow me to leave you with Uncle Lefty's "Three Awesome Truisms About The Myth of Thundersticks":

(1) You cannot protect yourself from a gun with a gun. (If that were true JFK would still be alive today.)

(2) You are MUCH more likely to be shot by someone you know than by a stranger. (All the more reason not to keep a gun in the house.)

(3) The bad guys always shoot first. That's how you know they're the bad guys. (And, unfortunately, vengeance is rarely an option as you'll probably be dead.)

Gun control now, before your child takes the next bullet. No joke.

covenenant houseEvery day in this country young adults are forced into the streets with no place to go and little to eat. Luckily for them there's places like Covenant House. It not only meets the immediate needs of homeless kids but also helps guide them to a self-sufficient future.

So if you have a few bucks left over after buying Aunt Thelma that new snood please consider making a small holiday donation to this worthy organization. Thanks!
