Here’s How the Gun Lobby Wants Us to Live

Quality of life? Out the window.

If you were wondering what life is like under the recently passed, “All Guns, All the Time” Georgia law crafted by ALEC and the gun lobby, here’s an answer. It means that some guy, trying to make a point that only he understands, can pace back and forth at your kid’s little league game with a gun (and knife) clipped to his belt. And when you and the other parents herd your kids into the dugout and form a human shield around them as you call 911, you can be told by law enforcement that there is nothing they can do.

Quality of life? Out the window, when there are important second amendment rights to be exercised. Where are your priorities, parents?

The park is responding by considering hiring an armed guard, because the answer to too many guns is just what Gun Owners of America and the NRA want: more guns! Feel secure, knowing your second grader is playing under loaded weaponry.

It’s time to pause and remember the wise words of Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) in the movie, Jurassic Park. “Just because we can, it doesn’t mean we should.”

    He’s just expressing his 2nd amendment rights. These parents simply need to go get their own guns and have a shoot-out or shoo him off to some other playground. The coaches could bring a bag of guns for the parents who forget theirs. Or the snack parent could be in charge of bringing the guns each week. Problem solved.

    Casey Hartman, I love your ideas. Thanks for providing very workable solutions here. Just do me a favor, and don’t suggest any of this to the NRA. They’ll jump on it!
