I see this rag is slowly but steadily [and finally] going out of business...it's income from advertising has fallen off so badly it must raise its subscribers' rates [known in federal circles as "taxes"]. But then that's how socialism works...drive off the businesses, sell off all the tangibles, and finally, enslave the people.

Well, there's your [non]answer, prarie_dog...such as it is.

Actually, it wasn't half bad [for a Progressive].

"Lock 'em away and feed them pinto beans for the rest of their days."

Cain't do that, alpo. Cruel and unusual punishment, you know. You Progressives have seen to that. Ah. You decided to erase that comment, I see. Doesn't matter...the quote above still stands...so that's what you would do to those who use a weapon to commit a crime, huh? Interesting, that.


...And it isn't just one person that will be the citizens' targets. Dr Leary was right when he said, "...Question Authority"

Then again, he was a shrink so what's that tell you?

Congratulations all you Socialist Progressives!

You have voted in another Hitler, another Pol Pot, another Mao TsiTung [however he spelled it], another Stalin, another Fat Little North Korean dude. Yes, you have voted in a soon-to-be dictator who rules his subjects by royal fiat...and damn the Legislature and the Supreme Court, too.

For those living in what are essentially Ghettos and the rest of you 47%ers, your wishes are coming true. Enjoy it. Meanwhile those of us who do NOT live in ghettos are well armed and will stay that way.

Except me, of course. I sold all my semi-auto guns last weekend to the highest bidder at a flea market/swap meet at absolutely premium prices. [All over 21, of course.] But my shotguns abide.

Now to get rid of the unneeded ammo...dumping it in the lake is probably the best way. All except the double-ought buck 12-guage stuff.

BigRidge -- " Except maybe a more aggressive president since he supposedly is done after this four?"

Reportedly, a bill has been introduced to repeal that Presidential term limit..

This just in: Congress is less popular than root canals and cockroaches but more popular than Ebola virus and gonorrhea...

It's interesting ...Bennett just might be liable to prosecution for his last few cartoons vilifying our government. He appears in violation of the US Constitution [as interpreted] on several occasions...

See http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/comm/free_speech/gitlow.html

Pay particular attention to the syllabus...it quite broadly damns and limits freedom of speech and of the press.

Assistant Justice Holmes' dissenting opinion wherein he stated, in part, "...every idea is an incitement" is also notable.

By the way, Gitlow is considered settled law.

You occasionally get it right, Bennett.

IMO, it would be even better if the curtain was labeled, "Current Federal Government".

Katie Pavlich byline...

Story Retraction: Authorities Say Newtown Shooter Did Not Use Assault Weapon

"Earlier today I posted an NBC News report about the type of weapons Adam Lanza used during his Sandy Hook rampage. That report was from December 15 and contained false information. According to the Newtown coroner, Lanza used a semi-automatic AR-15, not four handguns as the report said. The entire post has been retracted. I apologize for the error." [Emphasis mine]

Note: Ms Pavlich said the NBC News report she posted was incorrect, yet SHE apologized for the incorrect report. So...did or will NBC News send out a correction? Don't hold your breath.

So, easy, how do you defines an "assault rifle"? According to that law cited above, in the case of the two Rugers I cited, one of the mechanically identical rifles is an assault weapon, the other isn't. The ONLY difference is the stock.

So what say you? If you're gonna give another waffling, sakte-around-the-issue, BS answer, don't bother...in which case we will know you have no answer.

I'll remind you of this question on The Bennett's next toon.
