Can't have a gun news story with out the obligatory Brady Bunch Moron Comment.. "carrying a Colt45 on their hip" .. possible... not likely. So let me invoke a classic: Large Cap Clips, and The Shoulder Thing That Goes Up:
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined." -Obligatory Founding Father Quote
What is the mentality of a non-gun person? And how will it shape the views of this comedy skit on a comedy channel? I don't take the Saturday Night Live skits and spoofs on the POTUS debates as real either. Though I am into politics. My friends who are not into politics don't take those as real either.
If the Daily Show was REAL news they'd have the winning lottery numbers and the weather every ten minutes or so.
Until then, GET OVER YOURSELVES PEOPLE. It's a comedy show.
And you know I could have me a million more friends, and all I'd have to lose is my point of view. -- John Prine (A Good Time)
Be it a comedy show or not, I oc'd for years before cc was legal, most of that is true. People come up a ask, "you gonna shoot me?" ot just make some kind of remark about your side arm. Oc is putting yourself out there for some smart jerk to make a statement. They will never know how your gun saved them from carjacking, robery or some other crime by just being visible. As for "mis I dont know if they are here to protect me or shoot everyone", she was still alive to make the statement. Go figure. Most all thugs don't oc for shock effecy when they get next to you.

I don't like the video. I didn't laugh. Probably because when I heard the comments from others and the signs of the picketers I am reminded a lot of "Americans" feel that way and it isn't FUNNY. Our right to keep and bear arms is under attack by those who live in the real fantasy world. They work hard to tell the public that "guns are bad". I am so sick of it, I just want to puke. You can't argue with their level of idiocy. And these people are voting to strip my rights away and the ability to protect myself and my family at every election. So no, I didn't find it humorous at all.
Eh, kind of mixed feelings on it. Overall I thought it was pretty funny, I think what I didn't like were the Brady wackos, that and I'm not a huge John Stewart fan.
I think the Hamburglar is the only bad guy he's worried about. But it was funny.
Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
A woman must not depend on protection by men. A woman must learn to protect herself.
Susan B. Anthony
A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
I thought it was pretty amusing. I have to wonder if the people in the cafe knew that was being done for a TV show? I mean, they must have seen the cameras around.
"Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws." -Plato
I got a good chuckle out of it. I'm a pretty funny guy, but they say looks aren't everything!
It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once. - David Hume
