The Second Amendment has done more for humanity than the world will ever know. An armed populace has stood as a vanguard against a government that has been continually checked in their ability to seize unbridled power. It has created an atmosphere that makes all other rights possible. The protection of the population’s right to be armed has played no small role in our country having never been invaded since 1812.
However, for the narrow-minded granola-munchers of the left, the Second Amendment only does one thing: it allows children to be murdered.
Each and every time the left discusses the supposed need to further restrict our constitutional right to bear arms, they do so by pretending that it’s in the best interest of children. They frame the discussion in insidious terms and ask silly questions like, “Why do you need 30 rounds to hunt?”—as if the Second Amendment is a constitutional protection of hunting.
One such idiot is Marc Murphy, the cartoonist for the Louisville Courier-Journal. The NRA is hosting their annual gathering in Louisville. The event is huge and brings travelers from all over the country. To thank the NRA for bringing heaps and heaps of cash to the city, Murphy drew a cartoon depicting “our children” nailed to crosses labeled “Second Amendment” and tweeted the cartoon along with a welcome to the NRA.
I bet you didn’t know that the NRA hates children and wants to see them murdered, did you? Me neither. What monsters they must be!
The Courier-Journal maintained that it was not an official cartoon for the paper, but the paper’s name is included in the lower righthand corner.
After significant prodding, the Courier-Journal’s Neil Budde revealed that the cartoon was likely published in the paper in the past, but was not published in response to the NRA’s convention.
Oh, that makes it better…. Right?
Though it is undeniably true that children have been killed by firearms, it is also true that children are killed by automobiles and swimming pools. I have heard nobody clamoring for outlawing swimming pools or automobiles.
In fact, with so many children killed by automobiles, we should probably draw the same line of logic, right? AAA seeks to aid in the furtherance of these death machines called “assault vehicles.” Surely that must mean that they hate children and want to see them die, right?
If that line of “logic” seems ridiculous to you, that’s because it is. Likewise, smearing an organization dedicated to the protection of civil rights is similarly ridiculous.
