Life, Liberty, and the Firearms that protect them both

Petty poetry

with 2 comments

The CSGV has decided to upgrade their efforts to protect college students from magical ‘gun-free zone’ signs to magical ‘gun-free zone’ poetry.  It is about as sophisticated an argument as you would expect.

Cam Edwards of NRA News fights bad poetry with bad poetry.  He includes the original pro-gun-control poem in his YouTube video (the first four minutes), so you don’t need to bother watching the original video by itself.

Bob takes apart the original poem pretty much line by line on his blog.

For those not familiar with them, there is a wonderful grassroots organization called Students for Concealed Carry on Campus who are working hard to bring the basic right to protect oneself to college students across America.  Unlike our poet friend Mr. Cabellero, the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus can tell the difference between their friends, peers, and professors, and the criminals and maniacs who prey on them.  They understand that you cannot fight bad people by disarming good people.

    Great line. Very sufficiently sums up the argument. May have to steal it. 🙂

    • Thanks. I probably stole it myself, but I can’t remember where I read it before.
