"In Guns We Trust"

From BuzzFlash:
It's about white males in America feeling threatened by becoming a minority and the gun is their last psychological reassurance of entitlement power against an encroaching demographic change in our democracy. After all, the City of Chicago allows citizens to own rifles, so there never was a ban on guns in Chicago; there was a ban on a certain type of gun, which didn't even exist at the time the Constitution was written.

But it is the handgun that makes so many white males feel impregnable, as if they were riding around with a turret gun in a Hummer

  2. “so there never was a ban on guns in Chicago; there was a ban on a certain type of gun, which didn't even exist at the time the Constitution was written.”

    That’s wrong.

  3. By the author's idiotic logic, a ban on internet access is constitutional since it's a certain type of free speech that didn't even exist at the time the Constitution was written.

  4. TS: It's actually not wrong.

    AzRed: You can't have it both ways--what do you think the Founders would have thought of the content on TV or the intertubes? They certainly would have declared it obscene, blasphemous, etc.

  5. TS, Jade knows everything about guns. If he says that there were no handguns during the Revolution then it must be true. Otherwise he will say "myth, urban legend, didn't happen", make a dick joke then blame the NRA.

  6. Well the fool who paid a thousand dollars for this must be pretty pissed considering it doesn’t exist.

  8. Just watched an episode of "The Revolution" on the History Channel. They should have consulted with Jade Gold before they showed pistols.
