    Exclamation Doonsebury - -again.

    http://www.uclick.com/client/sea/db/

    Seems our hero can't get his numbers right; again.

    Or the reasons. Any use in refuting this kind of thing ?

    The people who write and believe stuff like that do so because of bigotry against gun owners because of sociological stereotypes, not because they base anything on fact. Being anti gun is the politically correct substitute for being racist--safety is their excuse, not their reason.

    Why is this called a "comic". Why is this on the Comics page? Why isn't it on the Op-Ed page?

    And most important, why is this comic not called Dingleberry?

    What part of "shall not be infringed" do *they* not understand?

    Ya gotta weaken them.

    Cause strengthening them in the preceding years, clearly had the opposite effect.

    Some people are too stupid to apply real logic.

    I stopped reading Doonesbury when Trudeau went on his unexplained (to me, anyway) vendetta against Frank Sinatra. That was what, twenty years ago?

    They're more accurate than not. However, if he were to have said, "accidental firearms deaths," a figure of 13,500 would have been closer to the mark than his "270,000."

    Not unless you enjoy banging your head against concrete.

    This guy has been a longstanding supporter of stupid.

    I read it once or twice, but it was never funny. He tries to glean an ironic laugh from being dead wrong about almost everything he has commentary on.

    He only looks cool to people who are more unintelligent than he is; everyone else can tell it isn't ironic, the points are invalid, and he defies logic and reason while trying to apply them. I picked up the trend quickly, never looked back.

    A one trick pony that can't get that one trick right. Why would anyone read that same pattern every day?

    Because you're smart and well-informed enough to see through his thick-headed rhetoric.

    Because the vast majority of the sheeple masses are not.
