Hit gun manufacturers’ cash flow…

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

… hmm… Not a bad idea. The Mayor of Chicago has sent a letter to the TD Bank, and other financial institutions to withdraw Smith and Wesson’s revolving line of credit. This request is intended to pressure Smith and Wesson and other gun makers to quit fighting against stricter automatic weapon controls.

I wonder how the banks will eventually respond to this.

Unfortunately, the revenues accrued through increased sales might render this moot. But given the opposition that the pro-sanity lobby (anti gun lobby) is facing down south, any help would be valuable.

So what now, NRA?

Arm firefighters?

This is so tragic. But what can you expect when you allow its citizenry to arm itself to the teeth?

I’m so glad that my family and I live in Canada.

Everyone has heard of the “fiscal cliff”…

Monday, December 24th, 2012

in America.

But they are tumbling toward the precipices of other cliffs as well.

How about the “sanity cliff” or maybe the “culture cliff”?

Or the “society cliff”…

After reading about how this news guy (rightfully) called a gun-toter and “unbelievably stupid man”.

LONDON — More than 31,400 people have signed a petition calling for British CNN host Piers Morgan to be deported from the U.S. over his gun-control views.

Morgan has taken an aggressive stand for tighter U.S. gun laws in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting. Last week, he called a gun advocate appearing on his “Piers Morgan Tonight” show an “unbelievably stupid man.”

Now, gun-rights activists are fighting back. A petition created Dec. 21 on the White House e-petition website by a user in Texas accuses Morgan of engaging in a “hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution” by targeting the Second Amendment and demands he be deported immediately.

Deport. Really. For stating the obvious.

After what I have written about the American far right, I think it would be wise for me to stay on this side of the border, permanently. After all, there are at least 31,400 unbelievably stupid people down there who might try to have me shipped to Gitmo!
