    Go Grandma!!


    But really, that IS something a kid could/would say. I don't see anything wrong with it; relax, it was kinda funny, and something you could expect any kid that age to say "bear arms?" Easy mistake.

    It's not like they had the guy say 'no', then talk about his sandwich- he agreed, then ate.

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    Sounds "pro" to me. It was mentioned with other things that make our country great. Humor is a common marketing tool to make a commercial or advertisement memorable (increasing the likelihood that someone will remember the product or brand) and there are far worse things they could've done to bash the 2A if that was their intention.

    They don't want to teach it because if they did and, if they were to teach a fair and balanced curriculum, they would probably end up with well-educated, and discerning, people who would realize that government should not be the "nanny." But that would totally screw with their own system because it might have slapback consequences that they fear.

    I really do not care, but the commercial was pretty good.

    Tin foil hat on: It could be a secret message to all that CC, to come on into dennys, because they like us..Tin foil hat off.....

    I had to vote Pro since they even bothered to mention it or include it (the 2A). The little girl's question wasn't making fun of it at all, it's just showing us what's disappearing from America (and soon to be lost) and how our young are actually under-educated these days. I'm still awaiting dad's response on this one. I do like the commercial and I'm not even thinking about food at the moment.

    It certainly leans to 'pro-2A'...I have no problem with it, but not really a big deal.

    Watched the video twice... I don't really think there was anything intentionally done to disrespect the 2nd Ammendment. It was simply the little girl's reply to the elderly lady's comment.

    I occasionally say "I support the right to keep and arm bears" but I certainly am not saying it a disrespectful manner.

    I doubt any serious message pro or anti was intended by the commercial. The main idea was to show the fat guy getting ready to slam that gigantic sandwich that's availaible for the eating at Denny's.

    What was great about the commerical is that it also affirming a persons right to freedom - the right to EAT something that tastes good without big brother (Bloomberg) saying we can't or having to regulate it. In my opinion it was talking about God given rights.

    I voted "Pro" and agree with those that said it was just good to hear someone acknowledge it.

    That commercial makes me want to drive to a Denny's and stuff my face while smiling at everybody I meet and not kill anyone.

    edit: I voted pro
