The Gun-Free Zone Solution

Cartoon from BALOO'S STAND-UP GUY WEBSITE.
Now, why didn't I think of that?  I swiped this from the wonderful blog of Nicholas Stix right HERE!

More on gun-free zones HERE.

P. S.  It's come to my attention (see the comments) that some people are reading this post and not catching on that it's an exercise in irony.  The point of the cartoon and the video both is that gun-free zones not only do not work, but they actually attract killers, because the killers are reassured that everybody else in the "gun-free zone" will be unarmed and therefore easy prey.  The cartoon and the video make fun of those who believe that gun-free zones are safe.  For more on this subject go HERE and HERE and HERE.

  1. What kind of freaking stupid ad is that? Fox is really become the Gun-nut hill billie tv station. Shame on them.

    1. I hate FOX, but the ad was funny and true. Morons think that if we ban guns, or make gun free zones it's going to stop criminals.

      Hey man, I got this magic rock. It will keep gun violence away from you. I'll sell it to you for $100.

  2. Yes, I agree! The ad is dumb, along with the cartoon strip. Banning guns isn't eliminating all violence, it is just working to decrease a specific type of violence by making it more difficult to gain access to a gun.

  4. Not only hoplophobes, but obtuse ones. The whole post is about the idiocy of gun-free zones, not about banning guns.

  5. Freedom needs to much responsability....
    This ad is not responsable at all, is stupidity in his high ramp.

  6. Is it my imagination, or are some of these commenters so unfamiliar with English that they're not picking up on the irony>

  7. Agree Ex-Army: I think it's a sketch from MadTv and some are taking it too seriously...

  8. As long Americans continue to kill each other with their own guns I see no problems at all. Let stupid people who like guns kill themselves, good riddance.

    1. You're kind of a sicko for saying that.

  9. It's well known, internationally, that the US doesn't do irony. It would appear democracy is joining that list, too.

    War, yes. Greed, yes. International bullying, yes. but irony... erm... not so much...

    1. Oh, you're one of those people that make generalizations about 311,000,000 people based on second, or third hand information? I applaud you.

  10. It's true! Many killers emigrate to Japan to take advantage of their very strict gun control laws. This is why Japan has not only the highest murder rate in the world, but also the highest absolute number of murders.

    1. Well, this is spectacularly ditzy — Japan is VERY picky about immigrants, and they'd have a low murder rate no matter what their laws might be. Here's a blog post about just that:

  11. Intelligent people use their brains. Stupid people use violence.
    As long as we give idiots the right to bear arms we should appreciate and accept that the collateral damage of this freedom such as Aurora, Sandy Hook, Blacksburg et al will continue unabated...
