No ‘good people’ at armed protest inside Michigan capitol

Watching ignorant gun owners — all male — armed with semi-automatic rifles and pistols, storm a state capitol, sticking their ugly faces inches away from very tolerant state police, it makes one want to scream loudly. Donald Trump, you ignorant asshole, there “are no good people here.” Period. Seeing these low IQ creatures wave their […]

To Beto Or Not To Beto

When second-string Democratic Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke says “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” is Beto full of it? Probably. Did his defiant stand on guns help the Democrats? Probably not. When Beto made his promise during last Thursday’s televised Democratic presidential debate, at best he was drawing a symbolic line […]

Guns A-Go-Go

It has been over a week since the last spate of bullet-spattered massacres in America ended and Donald Trump has already declared there is no political appetite for removing guns from America’s mean streets. Apparently mollified, the Republican-controlled do nothing Senate is already getting back to the new normal in the land of the free and […]

An Outcome That Was Bought and Paid For By the NRA

Wearing a “Born to Kill” t-shirt and a trench coat, a heavily armed Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, allegedly walked into a Santa Fe, Texas high school art classroom at 7:45 a.m. last Friday and killed ten people. He wounded another 13, one of which was reportedly the school’s resource officer. Authorities estimate the murderous rampage and […]

“He said ‘Surprise’ and then he started shooting . . .”

When Parkland, Fla. high school students proclaimed that the February 2018 shooting at their school would be “the last mass shooting,” sadly, we knew it wouldn’t be true. After all this is America, where too many people love their guns more than the life of your child. After another horrific school shooting today, this time […]

A wrap on the NRA’s latest festival of blood

Manuel Oliver is an artist whose son, Joaquin, was among the victims in the Parkland High School massacre. He has become a noted critic of the NRA, the nation’s gun laws and the cowardice of American politicians who won’t stand up to the gun-rights organization and it’s payoffs — uh, campaign contributions. The Shinbone Star […]

Deplorable Ted Nugent sold his soul to the NRA

Yellow-bellied, draft-dodger Ted Nugent is now a board member for the National Rifle Association and has compared Democrats to “rabid coyotes” that should be hunted and shot. “Keep your gun handy,” Ted said, “and every time you see one, you shoot one.” Ted, you will remember, was too cowardly to go to Vietnam. “Took a […]

Welcome to the #wildwildwestwing

Something incredible happened this week. Actually, a few incredible things: Donald Trump publicly shamed his attorney general; Trump’s girl Friday, Hope Hicks, announced her resignation; and Jared Kushner was outed for getting bank loans from bankers he met with in the White House. And then there was the freakily amazing meeting on gun reform between […]

Emma Gonzalez, like a hurricane

Sometimes the wings of a butterfly can start a hurricane. Emma Gonzalez, the 18-year-old senior and survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 of her classmates and teachers, is that butterfly. Her impassioned 11-minute speech at an anti-gun rally in Fort Lauderdale just two days after […]
