Good Evening!

Tonight is the last Friday night in the year…so let’s us go out with a bang!

Assault weapon bang…that is.

Oh boy, and that is all I’ve got for the “bang” part of the post!

Let have a few cartoons about the gubment…

This first one is good, only I would have added one thing. Can you guess what that would be?

I would’ve had Obama pulling the budget bag from the other side, bracing his legs on the tusk…and the US public under the ass, with that big GOP elephant taking a big GOP dump on the people.

That one is a good segue into these cartoons about the after Christmas party.

  1. It is one big party..as we wait it out, and count down the days to 2013.

    Your cartoons are great!

    I liked the “implied?” reference to Walnettos. That is just about where it stands with a lot of gun fetishists.

    Great post, JJ! Thanks for the laughs.

  4. Riverbird says:

    Thanks for the cartoons. I needed a laugh!

  5. Ecocatwoman says:

    This was an interesting article from a study commissioned by the NRC on small town school shootings: http://www.thenation.com/article/171866/roots-rampage

    We have alternatives in American society that would make a difference to a Carneal or a Lanza. We could promote a more diverse set of male images, reinforce that diversity by celebrating the math team as much as the football team, and find ways to help kids who hear rumors to come forward to adults who can intervene. There are near-miss cases where plots were stopped in their tracks because a young person had the courage to do just that.

    We will never be able to profile the kind of person who becomes a mass shooter in our schools: they come from stable two-parent households like the Carneals and families that have been through divorce like the Lanzas. They are often very bright boys, but not always. So we cannot generalize or pinpoint young men who have all the necessary conditions when we don’t really know what those conditions are.

    JJ – as usual great and very pithy commentary comics. Thanks for the laughs and associated pain because they are all too true.

  7. ANonOMouse says:

    Great cartoons JJ…..Especially love the 1st one because it makes the point I’ve been trying to make to my son-in-law, the gun enthusiast. Assault weapons are meant to kill people.
