The Public Castration of a Republican Politician
The current gun debate has had its share of gun
enthusiasts crazies explaining why their lives would be unbearable if they were ever prevented from purchasing semi-automatic weapons, 100-round double drum magazines and Rambo headbands in assorted colors.
Leading the pack of those opposing any form of gun control, has been the NRA’s Wayne Lapierre:
“We will not surrender. We will not appease. We will buy more guns than ever. We will use them for sport and lawful self-defense more than ever. We will grow the NRA more than ever. And we will be prouder than ever to be freedom-loving NRA patriots. And with your help, we will ensure that the Second Amendment remains America’s First Freedom.”
Yesterday we read about the Texas politician who is trying to push through legislation that would reduce the number of hours of training required to obtain a concealed-carry permit from 10 hours to four. Makes perfect sense, I think. No one wants to be overly proficient when handling firearms.
And now you can add Illinois State Rep. Jim Sacia to the mix of politicians upset about talk of stricter gun laws. Sacia’s beef is that gun control is being imposed on the good folks of Illinois when in fact, he claims, the only place in the state with a gun problem is Chicago. Tell ’em, Jim.
“Here’s an analogy folks, I ask you to think of this: You folks in Chicago, want me to get castrated because your families are having too many kids. It spells out exactly what is happening here! You want us to get rid of guns.”
Got that? No one messes with Jim’s guns because if you take away his guns then you might as well cut off his testicles and how the hell is Jim supposed to be a real man unless he has a firm grip on his guns…or testicles…or both? It can’t be done.
