  1. Comments from the “briar patch”
    Maybe I’m as crazy as Brair Rabbit, but I was just thinking that this whole gun control issue may be as big a smoke and mirror show as the anti-cigarette campaign is.
    Just think about it for a minute: the one thing that all government officials are addicted to is money; they simply die without it. And where do they all go to get that little bit left to “fix” their current crisis? Why, the “tobacco settlement” funds! They have a vested interest in keeping Americans addicted to Nicotene for the sake of their spending addiction, it’s as essential as addicting stupid teenagers to meth so you can afford to buy more for yourself.
    Now, compare that to the recent talk on banning rifles and hi-capacity magazines – and the resulting one-week buying frenzy that resulted. Has the country experienced a better week of retail sales in the past 5 years?
    Maybe the government has finally figured out that they can’t convince Americans to buy more Chinese-made crap from Walmart, so they turned to another form of persuasion to stimulate the economy.
    If I was a gun manufacturer right now, I would be working 3 shifts, hiring as many employees as I could, and paying more than my fair share of taxes and fees – while screaming at the top of my lungs and posting in every newspaper and website “do whatever you want to, but please, please don’t throw me in that briar patch!”

  2. @Tim Brooks. That briar patch analogy is absolutely hilarious and incredibly accurate. I had forgotten about Brer Rabbit. My mother read that to me many many nights as my bed time story. Good memories and in this case, good analogy.
