Okay, who are you and what have you done with Chip?
Wow, a Bok cartoon that speaks truth. Now what are we going to do about it? Tougher red flag laws? No parental signature without full parental responsibility? Limited to .22 for target or varmit shooting?
Criminals/Mentally Ill don’t follow Laws (22,000 Gun Laws already in America)
Even a stronger case than the one in Michigan where the parents are still in jail
Why is the guy behind the counter frowning? It’s a sale, right?
Simple; If a parent signs off on a gun sale of someone under 21, and the kid commits a crime, the PARENT spends the SAME TIME IN PRISON AS THE KID!
Red Flag laws and focusing on mental illness won’t solve this. They are a panacea. The gun rights people have beaten it into our heads, a bad guy will always find a way to get a gun and do bad things. As for mental illness, are we going to lock up all the crazy people? This is America the land of individual freedom. We have to do something else.
I have said it repeatedly the little monster should have been in the NICS database. He had a record of making on and off line threats, cops had been called on him several times and he had been referred for mental evaluation. So many red flags. How about we actually use and enforce the gun laws already on the books. Instead of defunding the police, add funds to establish a domestic violence response team to investigate reports of threats and violence by little demons such as in this case. If Arrest, lock up and charge the father as an accessory to murder as he knew darn well how dangerous his son would be with a gun.
And the kid was a leftist. Monk can’t take over fast enough.
I’m prepared , I have a stone axe head (very sharp at both ends) on my night stand within arms reach, with which to bash in the head of anyone who tries to attack me while I’m asleep. I feel very safe.
Gun violence advocates, like those commenting above demand weak laws and weak enforcement.
Is Bok dropping out of their ranks?
Is Bok ready for real laws and real enforcement?
Mitch McConnell: “Gosh, we need to figure out a way to keep these troubled young men from getting guns.”
RWNJ Greg Kelley on the anti-American propaganda media NewsMax: “The July 4th killer looks a little ‘Antifa-ish’ because he was wearing LGBTQ clothes.”
On the one hand, says the usual right-wing troll, “Criminals/Mentally Ill don’t follow Laws”, while another laments that gun laws are not being enforced [with no source given for that assertion], and also says Red Flag regulations are needed [that are always, without exception, DOA with Republicans], and that “Defund the Police” was an actual thing [when exactly the opposite has happened, with a massive increase in police funding across the nation]. Hilarious, too, when that same person called for a “domestic violence response team” when the creation of exactly such a thing has been falsely attacked as ridiculed as some kind of “Liberal” failure resulting in even more crime.
Here’s yer sign: “And the kid was a leftist.”
FOX “News” loves to give both traitors and wackos equal air time. Case in point, contributor Bill Bennet suggested that “exorcisms” should be done to stop the mass shootings. “But I don’t wanna suggest something that would seem farcical to some of your audience,” he said, after host Bret Baier gave him the raised-eyebrow “seriously?” look.
Look at what one homemade gun can do in Japan! They had one firearms death last year 1 now they have a dead former PM. Crazy is crazy what will Japan outlaw next..pipes?
Someone else drew this.
Pen is mightier than the AK-47.
Add my name to the list of those colored “amazed” that Bok got something right AND correct.
Either Chip Bok had a rational brain implanted to replace his (clearly defective) conservative one before drawing this ‘toon, or somebody has him locked away somewhere and a rational replacement ‘toon creator is working here using Bok’s name.
Whatever has happened, I hope it is permanent.
^ @Isnrchrd.1 — I wouldn’t get my hopes up too high … we should remember Bok’s cartoon history….
Isn’t that adorable, bless his heart.
Funny that people could buy firearms by mail and we didn’t have this problem. Maybe it’s NOT the guns. Maybe it’s something trickier to address.
It’s also telling that you would abrogate Rights that pre-date the Constitution because a tiny fraction of evil-minded people misuse them. There are a few dictatorships around the world that might be more your cup of tea.
