I WANT that a lot of this crap didn’t happen. I’m pretty sure that we NEED it too. But neither option is going to change things until we put our collective shoulders to the wheel and start pushing. In the same damn’ direction!
The first T-Rex wished for a hand grenade. But with his short arms, it didn’t end up well.
Problem is, everyday they make it more legal and easier to get
You can have anything if you throw enough money at it, and at the people who can make it happen. The NRA supporting the GOP have made that painfully, or is that deadly clear.
Just be sure to check history for the results of disarming populations.
Like I wrote on Doonesbury, you flat cannot satirize this sh!t.
Can’t even like this one. Too bitter a truth.
I know those are supposed to be guns, but in the 8th panel it almost looks like the dinosaur is holding an oboe.
The dinosaurs died because a meteor hit the Earth. Some people don’t want to acknowledge it because then it might happen again to us someday.
I would have thought a whole pile of Kalashnikovs would’t have done the allosaurs much good – I simply wouldn’t have liked to live when they were around, firearms or not!
To quote parody news site The Onion, ""’No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens".
All of the recent ‘mass shooters’ were on SSRI medications, probably non-compliant at times. The mentally ill and criminals won’t follow our gun laws (22,000 in America 2022).
Thankfully, we don’t always get what we want (or think we need) or wish for. Sadly, sometimes we do (and it’s not what we “need”).
Today is Gun Sunday. Read Doonesbury for 7/10/2022.
THANK YOU, WILEY!!!
Of course, the Reich-Wingnuts will miss the point entirely…
So it wasn’t really a comet?
the kid in highlands park had a new dress he wanted to show off. some thing tells me he will be wearing a lot of dresses when he ends up in prison…
Once again, guns are not the problem. No one wants to look at how we got to this state. We (Americans) used to respect each other, were supportive of our country and were God fearing even if they didn’t believe. Now we’re Godless, less than patriotic and think it’s a good thing to kill babies, which also reduces our overall value of life. Mental health issues are at an all time high but that never seems to come into play in this discussion. We’ve always had guns, but mass shootings were rare. What happened? Address that question.
Has anyone else noticed that we aren’t hearing anything much about the poor victims of the latest mass murders?
Why stop with AR-15 and other semi-automatic, military-grade weapons? Let’s let people own flamethrowers and RPGs. After all, I have a right to self-protection. Too much is never enough. We need personal arms races.
As long a Leftist domination of individual Liberty is in the want well, guns will be in the need well.
Criminals and Crazies. First take all their guns away BEFORE you come for mine(who’ve never shot anyone). But then who determines ‘crazy’? Only the courts can do it now and they just turn the C&C’s back out on us now.
Need- security and credible self defense from a government that won’t protect us and seeks to oppress us.
Want- a utopian society that leftists think they can create if only the approved police state has guns and the citizens have no means of defending themselves.
Marching to Pretoria, or armageddon? BTW, those arms too short to load the magazines into the rifles.
And now Scientists are developing an ultra intelligent AI Robot. Guess what they will want for Christmas?
This is what happens when you tell your father that you are bored.
Stop voting for republiguns, they worship guns.
Allegory, al-le-go-ry, noun: The expression by means of symbolic fictional figures and actions of truths or generalizations about human existence*
For those supporters of right-wing candidates who got stumped on the “big” word.
No. It’s not how the dinosaurs became extinct. Nor was it smoking out behind the barn.
Not far from the truth!
Makes sense to me.
Really, really, really odd how y’all in the T*rd Reich completely, totally ignore each and every one of the gun laws in the vast majority of the rest of the industrialized world (as opposed to the third world the US is rapidly becoming) that drastically reduce the number of mass shootings, gun violence in general, and suicides as well, and golly gee! yet still allow hunters and sports people to own firearms. Of course these laws do require responsible ownership, proper gun safety education and proficiency training, proper safe, secure, and separate storage of both firearms and ammunition, background checks, taxes and fees, interviews, a mental health evaluation, and a regular re-evaluation and inspection of same. It’s the responsibility part that ticks off all y’all in the gun industry, the lobbyists, and especially the ILA branch of the NRA. Y’all really do stand to lose a crap lot of coin if that would happen here.
I doubt dinosaurs had the mental capacity to figure out how to use the weapons depicted in this strip. However, if they did and if they existed in modern times, who’s to say they might not have met their end with the help of such weapons?
As the old saying goes: “If Wishes were Fishes, we’d be up to our necks in fish guts.”
Pfft. As if the problem is people wanting more guns and ammo. Easy target, not getting to the real cause.
The real reason for the 2nd amendment and gun ownership is to prevent a government from becoming tyrannical. I hope we don’t need to do this, but it is best to be prepared.
Dinosaurs’ arms were too short to fire a gun.
So it’s amazing they’re not still here.
Meanwhile, in the wings, next one is looking at all the attention the previous one is getting and saying, “I can do better than that.”
Thank you for proliferating the meme.
Over the cliff?
