Gun Control poster

Not sure who created this one, but I like it:



Sadly, it makes a serious point.

I'd imagine one with hooded Klansmen endorsing gun control would make a similarly serious point.

I peeked at your image code, MLeake and it looks like you're trying to upload something from an email. Perhaps if you uploaded the pic to something like Imageshack or Photobucket, you could use the code generated there to better effect?

Spats, I'm in Afghanistan; my ability to do so is limited, but I'll try tomorrow when I have more time.

Oh. That DOES make things a little difficult.

Powerful on many levels...

I wonder what Native Americans think about strict gun laws.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.

I see it now.

Very serious point indeed.

Yep, many gun control laws were passed to protect the Klan.

"I wonder what Native Americans think about strict gun laws."
I know quite a few and they pretty much pay no attention to gun laws.

Oleg Volk has a great poster, posted it here, as a matter of fact, that showed an actualy picture of a Klukker armed with an M-2 carbine.

The gist of it being the same as the poster above.

Kinda hard to ride on a lynching in your sheets when the fella you're after is packing a shotgun.

Ok, thanks guys, I think I have fixed the issue in the OP.

My mother found and sent me several more; I chose the ones I liked best, to add to the pot.

These don't focus on the minority suppression aspect, but I think they are still pretty effective.

I love you guys, I had the best time in a twitter debate today, and was able to hold my own with stuff I've picked up from you guys on Heller, Miller, and did a little research of my own for Tennesee v. Garner. I'm kinda disappointed he quit replying though. He was pretty civil, so it was a good debate.

Gun Control

delarosadavid! Two more pictures need to be added to the poster you sent! Unfortunately, both claim to be Americans.
