The Logical Solution: Ban Politicians Who Assault Our God-Given, Shoot-'Em-Up Rights, Not Guns, Blah Blah

Abby Zimet

Hoping to “strike the fear of God in the gun-grabbing politicians on both sides of the aisle" and thus prove they're not about to just roll over and die (no pun intended) amidst all this silly fuss about those poor children at Sandy Hook being massacred because there wasn't enough firepower available at that  school which we all know would have stopped it all even though that's never worked before, a new coalition of gun advocates and conservatives have sensibly declared Jan. 19, right before Obama's inauguration, "Gun Appreciation Day," wherein supporters are called on to line up “around the block” at gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges to protest the inexcusable "post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights" by an Obama administration that "has shown that it is more than willing to trample the Constitution to impose its dictates upon the American people” by denying us our right to die a bloody, pointless death at the unregulated hands of unbalanced gun-owners, much like our right to die from lack of affordable health care, and besides, freedom and values and tyranny and. The same day, the NRA is hosting a tutorial for Nevada elected officials only on the wonders of semi-automatics. Same justifications. Sigh.

"If, as this president claims, the American people are at risk from murderous rampagers, the logical solution is to arm, not present a docile target.” - the enlightened folks organizing this event.
