That’s hilarious and all, but I’m still waiting for an answer— from any gun control advocate ever— as to how people who are incapable of flight or physical self defense and don’t live across the street from a police station are supposed to defend themselves from violent attack without guns. Because until you come up with that answer, when you advocate for gun control you are essentially telling tens of millions of Americans that their safety doesn’t mean shit to you.
There are 300 million to 350 million guns in America. Making them illegal is not the same thing as making them magically disappear. Telling criminals to stop using something is not the same thing as magically making them stop using it. If they obeyed the law they wouldn’t be criminals.
Check your fucking privilege before you tell poor people who live on the bad side of town that they should have to give up their right to protect their families so that you can pat yourself on the back and pretend like you’re “safe” because you told criminals to stop being criminals and were stupid enough to think that was going to fix anything.
Ha ha ha! When I got to “check your fucking privilege” I just about lost it. Really? We’re throwing that phrase around here?
You are arguing against a strawman. No where in this cartoon is it advocating for the removal of all guns. No where does it say to “make all guns illegal.” It does seem, however, to be against using armed gunmen to protect schools from crazy jerks in lieu of any kind of gun control whatsoever. When society has to resort to that shit to keep kids safe from crazy jerks, I’m pretty sure that’s when society fucking fails. If you disagree, then… wow. Check YOUR privilege. You don’t need a friggin’ assault rifle to feel artificially safe and like a Big Man more than we need schools that aren’t war zones.
