When they come for your guns and ammo, let them have the ammo first

If there’s one thing you can be sure of these days, it’s that whenever some sociopath grabs a gun and starts mowing down innocent people (usually in a “gun-free zone”), politicians, professors, and professional entertainers will come out in mass to demand gun prohibition. As William S. Burroughs once observed, “After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it.”

In reaction to the recent atrocity at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a gaggle of lamebrained celebrity types got together and produced an incredibly stupid video called “Demand a Plan” — as if sociopathic behavior occurs because we lack a “plan.” Here it is, if you think you can stand it:

I’m so out of touch with popular culture that I didn’t know who half those people were, but apparently a lot of them got rich and famous by making movies and television shows that are just chock full of violence, including gun violence galore. Here’s one of several videos that were made in response to “Demand a Plan” that highlight the hypocrisy of the celebrities involved (WARNING – extremely graphic violence):

Or, put another way:

(Other video responses to Demand a Plan can be seen here and here [warning: crude language].)

Meanwhile, our celebrity president, who is surrounded at all times by bodyguards armed to the teeth with state-of-the-art weaponry, and whose two daughters attend an elite private school that employs eleven armed guards, is just salivating at the prospect of taking guns away from law-abiding citizens. From his point of view, it makes perfect sense; there’s nothing a would-be dictator likes better than an unarmed populace. And if more of us peasants have to die as a result of being unable to defend ourselves against criminals, it’s no skin off his nose. His security detail is in no danger of being disarmed, ever.

If the gun prohibition crowd gets its way, we can look forward to the entire country ending up like Chicago, which has some of the strictest gun control in the country and (by remarkable coincidence) some of the very highest homicide rates.
