Double-Take from NPR

http://www.npr.org/2013/01/14/169143...*****=20130114

NPR usually finds cartoonists from both sides of the issue, and I think this cartoon from a rather left source, shows us how few people are behind this push from leftist elites.

Looks to me like an anti gun cartoon with the paper headline and the grim reaper throwing away his old equipment for a new and improved harvesting option.

Yes, the second cartoon shows the societal shift from blaming the criminal to blaming the implement. Surprising given the source; but very true none the less.

As did I.

I considered registering just to reply to the loons, but what's the point? When the retort is, "If it just saves one child it would be worth it. You're a baby-hating monster for not agreeing with me.", it's a waste of my time. There are a couple of people on there trying to cut through the insanity, but pointing out the fallacy of the grabbers logic only results in accusations of "changing the subject."
