Self Defense

Rate: 4 Flag

This cartoon will have the same strong impact all my previous 500 or so gun cartoons have–none. Pushed hard by the gun-worshiping fundamentalists of the NRA, state legislatures have fallen all over themselves in a rush to adopt ever crazier laws legalizing guns everywhere you can think of–in college campuses, in shopping malls, in courtrooms, in church–and half the states allow perceived threat as a defense in case some trigger-happy idiot happens to shoot down an innocent teenager armed only with a menacing bag of Skittles, as happened in Florida the other day. Great law, that. Golly, judge, he was Black and holding a suspicious-looking ice cream cone; I feared for my life. Case dismissed. Along with any pretense of sanity.
