Gun Control Humor

    I shared four editions of gun control humor (hereherehere, and here) in 2021, but none so far this year.

    Time to rectify that oversight.

    First, we have a message for leftists who think America is a horrible society, yet for inexplicable reasons always want government to have more power and authority.

    This next item made me laugh.

    In part because some people are dumb enough to think it’s easier to get a gun than vote and in part because Martin deserves and award for cleverest comeback.

    Our third item deals with America’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, which was the right policy but the wrong implementation.

    One consequence is that the Taliban gained control over billions of dollars of sophisticated weaponry.

    Needless to say, that made many Americans jealous.

    Here’s my favorite item from today’s collection.

    The United States arguably leads the world in gun ownership. That would not be good news for any invaders.

    The jab at Oregon was particularly amusing. People who vote higher taxes on themselvesobviously are incapable of self-government, much less self-defense.

    If anyone knows what is meant by “contractors” and “CMP people,” please let me know if the comments section.
