Obama gun regulationFrom cartoonist Clay Jones about ‘Skippy’s Got a Gun,’ and the difference between Obama taking your gun and gun regulation

Obama promised to deliver executive orders to decrease gun violence. Guess what wasn’t in any of it? Taking away your guns.

Obama is not coming to take your guns. There’s been this narrative for seven years that he’s coming for them, yet you still have your guns. If he’s coming for your guns, he better get busy because he’s running out of time. In fact, he hasn’t even talked about taking away guns.

Last Friday in Oregon protesters lined the streets to scream at Obama not to take their guns. OK. He’s not taking your guns.

Sometimes when it comes to criticizing Obama, logic and facts are not applied.

At what point will you believe he’s not coming to take your guns? Will you still believe it when he’s out of office?

I don’t know if we’ll ever have gun control in this country. Here’s a fact: We will never round up guns. Right wingers say there are too many, and they’re right. There are too many guns, and they’re in the hands of the few. But we can’t round them up.

We do need strict regulation. Regulation gun lovers will hate. We need legislation that tracks every single gun sale. Every single one. No sales without background checks. No sales of ammunition without a background check. There should be a limit on amount of ammunition.

You should be required to possess a license to own a gun. You should have to renew your license. Yes, the Second Amendment gives you the right to own guns. It doesn’t say it can’t be regulated. It doesn’t say you shouldn’t be held unaccountable.

Will this regulation stop gun violence? Not immediately. But eventually it will decrease, and the amount of illegal guns out there will rise to the surface, unfortunately through crime.

This country is insane for guns. We don’t make much sense when it comes to ownership. It doesn’t make much sense to have such a blind devotion to it. Personally, I think people who are nuts about guns are overcompensating. Personally, I don’t need a gun to feel like a man.

It’s time for us to adopt a culture that when it comes to guns, we start making sense.

I drew this cartoon very early Tuesday morning. I finished coloring it Tuesday night. The last thing I put into the cartoon was the father’s name. I toyed with making it a conservative cartoonist’s name, but I couldn’t decide which one, and then I decided not to. I figured some would think it was a shot across the bow when I was actually just trying to have fun. Plus, I couldn’t think of any that deserved the attention, and it would go to his or her head.

  1. Hey brain dead idiot! You mean like Australia and England that Obama touts as a goal. They took away their guns. If Obama could get it done it would have been done yesterday. Registration leads to confiscation where ever its been done in the world. Why would we be different. Ref: New York, California, Katrina.

  2. Re: “Obama is not coming to take your guns”

    Really? What do you call his support for an “assault weapons” ban?

  3. Re: “Will this regulation stop gun violence?”

    The problem you have is that in 2010 (for example) there were 725000 violent criminals in state prisons and 15000 in federal prisons. This works out to a total of 740000 or about 0.238% of the US population which means that about 1 out of every 420 people in the US that have been caught have no qualms about ignoring whatever laws you pass and killing or injuring someone and the gun is often their tool of choice. So the bottom line is (1) The human race produces a few bad individuals prone to violence who just refuse to play by whatever rules you promulgate and until you find some way to identify these individuals and the courage to permanently eliminate them from society, innocent people are going to be killed (2) Because of these bad individuals, bad things happen every day to people who through no fault of their own were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Criminals will always have guns if they want them. If worst comes to worst they will be smuggled into the US from Mexico inside a bale of marijuana and sold on the black market.

    I could just as easily argue that people who make statements like this are exhibiting chronic symptoms of a psychological anxiety disorder related to firearms for which they may want to consider treatment from a professional psychologist or therapist.

  5. LIBS R SUCH SIMPLETONS! To even BEGIN to argue this point is to lower yourself to their level of… a retard! …a simpleton.

    “THEY” KNOW THE TRUTH.
    “WE” KNOW THE TRUTH.

    NO AMOUNT OF FOOTSY’s (childish rhetoric) CAN/WILL CHANGE THE FACTS.

    ** NOTHING TO SEE HERE, FOLKS… MOVE ALONG.

  6. Do you seriously think that we’re that stupid? Obama points to Australia and England as examples of what he wants to do.

    Australia and England TOOK AWAY EVERYBODY’S GUNS.

    You schmuck.

  7. The cartoonists ignorance is readily apparent in his “drawing”. The principal has his finger on the trigger and is pointing it away from his line kf sight and mkst likely towards other children in a neighboring classroom. Any normal responsible firearms owner knows the rules of gun safety. My 6 year old know better than this moron.

  8. Using this idiots own words. How about:

    “We do need strict abortion regulation. Regulation Liberals will hate. We need legislation that tracks every single abortion. Every single one. No abortions without background checks. No visits to Planned Parenthood without a background check. There should be a limit on number of abortions.

    You should be required to possess a license to have an abortion. You should have to renew your license. Yes, the Constitution apparently gives you the right to abortions. It doesn’t say they can’t be regulated. It doesn’t say you shouldn’t be held unaccountable.”

  9. The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United Stat

    Second Amendment foes lying about gun control – The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with personal self-defense.Firearms are our constitutionally mandated safeguard against tyranny by a powerful federal government. Only dictators, tyrants, despots, totalitarians, and those who want to control and ultimately to enslave you support gun control.

    No matter what any president, senator, congressman, or hard-left mainstream media hookers tell you concerning the statist utopian fantasy of safety and security through further gun control: They are lying. If their lips are moving, they are lying about gun control. These despots truly hate America.

    These tyrants hate freedom, liberty, personal responsibility, and private property. But the reality is that our citizens’ ownership of firearms serves as a concrete deterrent against despotism. They are demanding to hold the absolute power of life and death over you and your family. Ask the six million Jews, and the other five million murdered martyrs who perished in the Nazi death camps, how being disarmed by a powerful tyranny ended any chances of fighting back. Ask the murdered martyrs of the Warsaw Ghetto about gun control.
    Their single agenda is to control you after you are disarmed. When the people who want to control you hold the absolute power of life and death over your family, you have been enslaved. The hard-left Marxist and Islamists who infect our federal government plus the MSM media prostitutes who protect them will gleefully lie, falsify, fabricate, slander, libel, deceive, delude, bribe, and treasonably betray the free citizens of the United States into becoming an unarmed population. Unarmed populations have been treated as slaves and chattel since the dawn of history.

    Will we stand our ground, maintaining our constitutionally guaranteed Second Amendment rights, fighting those who would enslave us?

  10. Are you a properly registered and licensed journalist and cartoonist? Are the tools of your trade regulated by the government? Did you have to pass a background check to engage in First Amendment activity?
