A crazy gun nut friend of mine sends along this poster – clearly, he should be arrested for the safety of the rest of us everywhere.

He’s a paranoid lunatic. We advanced thinkers know better.
Do you have to be a card carrying Brown Shirt to be an “advanced thinker,” or can you just be an ordinary indoctrinated Quisling?
Still hating Yankees down there, or do you live in the more sophisticated eastern Virginia where students are not allowed to shake hands because you never know what that might lead to?
Weakly, I’m afraid that many readers of this blog don’t get sarcasm – I’ve discovered that, and judging from some of the comments to your missive here, you now have too. Oh well.
out of that crowd – who was the most prolific mass murderer ..in the overall context..taking into account style, charisma and brutality …
…As gun stores currently enjoy land-sale business, some Americans are arming themselves to insure against circumstances as yet unseen. They justifiably worry that a government that aims gun barrels at Amish dairy farmers is capable of the unimaginable.
Wow – that was some article!
National Review; it’s read by many “advanced thinkers.”
So you’re OK with what the Feds are doing, but disapprove of the people who are reporting it?
nah, I’m still unkindly heckling weakleyhollow for his “advanced thinker” pretension.
Doesn’t seem crazy to me.
I thought the poster’s message was quite compelling.
FWIW: in 1956, Pol Pot was teaching French Lit and history at Chamraon Vichea College.
Not at Harvard?
Anonymous’s link, above, reminded me of an incident in which I was involved in Moscow in the summer of 1986 and how thing can change.
I was riding in a car not far from the Kremlin, the car driven by a Russian rock musician friend who was very well connected in the Soviet system. He was doing twice the speed limit when we were pulled over by the militia. He got out of the car and went to talk to the cops but ran into difficulties because he was not carrying any ID whatsoever.
A couple of minutes later he angrily stomped back to the car and got in, but before he could close the door a militia man reached in and grabbed the steering wheel. My friend simply put the car in gear and floored it. The militia guy hung on as we dragged him across six lanes of traffic before ending up on the sidewalk. The militia surrounded the car.
Being an American I got out with my hands up to avoid the expected shooting by the dreaded Soviet police. The militia captain gaped when he saw this, then doubled over laughing. When he recovered sufficiently he pointed a finger at me and gleefully yelled “American!” He then turned to my Russian friend and said “Tell him we don’t shoot people like that here”.
Eric Holder un guns.
i think this thread need to lighten up a tad:
Definitely compiled by a non-Asian history major.
The next row on the poster could be of lesser known “leaders” that have purged their societies of 10’s of thousands.
The row after that. could be the wanna be’s like obummers butt buddy, Bill Ayres.
Of course there would have to be a section for popes, Imams. and bishops as well
Did Fuddrucker write this??
More modern way of living

TO THE EDITOR:
Republicans and “so-called” conservatives are at it again. They are claiming that the Constitution gives people the right to have guns without the permission of the government. If that were true, then how could New York and Chicago have laws against it?
We Democrats are sick and tired of Republicans constantly using the Constitution to cover up their true plans, which are to make us all afraid of everyone else. Our great president came from a civilized part of the country where there is strict gun control, and he is only trying to bring the benefits of that more modern way of living to the rest of us. I don’t know the exact statistics, but I’m quite certain that Chicago is a lot safer that Morehead City, when it comes to gun violence.
But do Republicans and conservatives listen to the voice of reason? No, of course not. All they want to do is whine and complain about how gun control and wealth redistribution violate the Constitution, as if the Constitution were all that great, anyway. There are a lot of things that need to be changed about the Constitution, I’d say, and President Obama needs to change it.
The Republicans are just trying to stand in the way, because the president is black. They even dared to question whether he was born in this country. I think all this demonstrates that the Constitution needs to be amended when it comes to the qualifications for being president. Right now, it says that a person has to be 35 years old and be a natural born citizen. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C-section. But because the Constitution was written a hundred years ago, nobody even thought of the discrimination that would result from a doctor having to deliver a baby in this unnatural way. Now that we Democrats are in control of the government, that’s just one more thing we should change in our drive to make life fair.
Please withhold my name because I don’t want to get crank calls.
PROUD TO BE A DEMOCRAT
I think Chris wrote it as agit-prop
Walt is the author
Nah, it’s Emily Litella’s daughter who wrote it.
5 year old killing everyone on shooting minecraft game, I say to him, “shooting to kill is bad”, he replies, “it’s his job”,
Technically, the poster shows that we’re making progress, as less people are killed as history progresses. That’s good, isn’t it?
Are you intimating that Barack Obama is going to kill millions of people after he passes gun control laws? “What color is the sky in your world, Cliffy?” (ode to Cheers fans…)
