NRA Spokesman Billy Johnson Promotes “Gun Socialism”
Check out the NRA’s latest anti control proposal. In a Think Progress Video, I originally saw over at Wonkette ( where we had a lot of fun making fun of it ), Billy Johnson, proposed for lack of a better term “Gun Socialism.”
Kyle Kulinski ( Secular Talk ) Created an excellent response video to Billy Johnson’s “Gun Socialism”
I have to agree with Kulinski.
How would putting guns into the hands of children stop school shootings? We’re supposed to trust little kids now, who are barely mature enough to survive on their own to use dangerous weapons?
Also I’ll bet, Johnson expects us to believe the old myth that more guns equals less crime, sorry but it doesn’t exactly work that way.
His idea may fall in line with the most extreme interpretations of the second amendment, but how is he supposed to squire with the wingnut opposition to anything even perceived to be socialist?
Now how is it that Obamacare, which is supposedly socialism and therefor bad, but this isn’t socialism and this is good? I mean he’s advocating the government spend our tax dollars on giving people guns? Not to mention government funded shooting ranges, and “free” ammo? How is it that wingnuts wouldn’t call him a socialist if he was proposing something like this for anything else?
Also the reason why even the most extreme anti gun control advocates in general can’t perceive guns as a need, in the way he says we should, probably has something to do with this fact. Human beings have literally survived for over a million years without guns.
