All across this great land of ours, ducks are falling…well…like ducks. What does one expect when it’s open season and those poor ducks have no way to protect themselves from all the hunters out there trying to bag ’em. Trouble is…the ducks to which I refer walk on two legs and attend public schools, colleges, and universities from sea to shining sea — where “No Guns Allowed!” reigns.
The latest shoot-em-up happened today in northern Illinois…the fourth incident in a week. And as with all the rest, nobody was there to protect those poor and defensless ducks from the hunters. The Ducky authorities just posted emails and broadcast over intercoms to “Stay in your rooms (and please don’t shit your pants while you cower in a corner or under a desk wondering if the hunter is heading your way and if he will happen to see a brightly-colored flag on your sorry head).”
Would all 21 people have been shot (5 dead) in Illinois if someone had a piece with which to make peace? Rest assured that in the event of a little localized war in my vicinity…my SIG-Sauer P-226 DAK 9mm, training, and most importantly, my will to make use of both, will quickly result in peace again.
Update posted on the 15th: the number of dead has risen to 6. Other reports say 7, but decent people don’t include the cowardly M-F’er who shot himself. Unless you are of the relatively few who believe Hitler to have been a good man, you do not count him among the tens of millions he took with himself as he also cowardly made his way to the bunker and shot his evil ass. If only a good person with a gun had been able to do it 10 years earlier…
And to add stupidity to insult, the following was in the Yahoo! version of this story:
Agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were assisting local authorities at the scene, spokesman Thomas Ahern told the Chicago Tribune.
“We will be urgently tracing the firearms and learning the history of the weapons,” Ahern said.
I’m so glad they’re onto the case of those ee-vill guns. I’ll bet those guns have a rap sheet a mile long! My tax money pays for this moron???
Oh, by the way…Happy Valentine’s Day! Sound callous and out-of-place? So are those who have prevented law-abiding citizens from making sure that laws are abided when The Law is elsewhere at the Moment Of Truth.
