It’s time to add some new material to our collection of gun control satire.
We’ll start with this clever use of rhetoric from the debate over illegal immigration.
Seems like a very humane approach.
Next, fans of Willy Wonka will appreciate this side trip into the land of make-believe.
By the way, I’m always happy to share clever humor from the other side, such as this depiction of an American breakfast.
So enjoy this German-language explanation of how to smuggle candy into an American theater.
Mit diesem genialen Trick kann man leicht einen Schokoriegel in ein US-amerikanisches Kino schmuggeln! pic.twitter.com/CMk4vlKxce— Johannes Köpl (@JohannesKoepl) August 24, 2019
This next bit of satire is amusing, though I wish its creator just used a random collection of David Hogg-types for the lower frame. As explained by the Pink Pistols, gun rights are especially important for sometimes-persecuted groups.
Three years ago, I shared an amusing comparison of how Europeans and Texans respond to terrorism.
Well, here’s a left-wing version of Paul Revere, warning neighbors of a looming terror attack.
Finally, let’s close with an amusing modification of the one-liner that Elizabeth Warren uses to denigrate gun owners.
We can safely assume that Ms. Warren has never seen this image. Or, if she has, she reached the wrong conclusion.
