BizPac Review reports that this repulsive cartoon by Kansas City Star cartoonist Lee Judge was published in Florida’s Charlotte Sun newspaper just days before American hero Chris Kyle was laid to rest. The cartoon also appears in Judge’s archive on the Kansas City Star website.

The cartoon echoes a ghoulish gun-grabbing tweet sent by Mother Jones editor Clara Jeffery on Feb. 2: “So much for good/talented guy with a gun being able to stop mentally ill guy with a gun.”

As always, the Left’s anti-gun zealots can’t restrain themselves from bathing in the blood of the dead … even (or perhaps especially) when that blood was shed by a former Navy SEAL who served his country honorably.

    Once again, liberals show their complete departure from reality. Just because you can fight back doesn’t mean you’re gonna win. At least Kyle wasn’t helpless. More than anyone can say for the Sandy Hook children, Aurora movie goers, lthe kids at Columbine, Virginia Tech and the many other “gun free” free fire zones where these mass shootings take place.

    • Leopold Bloom

      Columbine a gun-free zone? They had an armed guard, just as Wayne LePierre called for.

      Do you suggest the other students should have been armed?

      • Fire and Adjust!

        The “other students” would have been under-aged to purchase, own, and carry guns in accordance with the established law…….. consequently, that should have also meant Clebold and his peezo shouldn’t have had open access to them either, yet they did………..so much for gun control being the end all be all solution………. Furthermore, courthouses are considered gun free zones, although security personnel carry them…….. are you saying that means they are not really gun free zones?……… any chance you may have heard of the guy who killed his wife and another woman in a MD courthouse earlier this week?…..even though it was a gun free zone……back to the drawing board with your argument

        • Leopold Bloom

          Wow, talk about straw mans. First of all, I never said I supported gun control. I just said Wayne LePierre is a moron.

          Second of all, the ease with which the Columbine shooters acquired guns is hardly a case against gun control. It is pretty irrefutable evidence that we have never tried gun control. Can you really say that we have gun control if two kids can order guns online and never face a background check?

          Let’s at least agree on the obvious things: 1) banning guns should never and will never happen, 2) banning guns would not eliminate gun violence, 3) we don’t really have gun control in this country if someone can easily buy a gun at a gun show without a background check, or buy one online, 4) making it harder for bad people to get guns makes us safer, even if it does not make us perfectly safe.

          Can’t we at least agree on that, and act on it?

          • Fire and Adjust!

            We can on 1, 2, and 4, but NOT #3. Even here in Texas, buying a gun at a gun show STILL requires a background check, just as I had to get 2 months ago as I waited over 2 hours at that gun show while my background check got processed and cleared.

            Second, firearms purchases made via the internet require the retailer to send the firearm to an FFL who personally verifies the purchaser is who the background check is/was performed on.

            And I will recognize that person to person firearms regulations could have better requirements put in place (similar to the requirements for a person to person vehicle sale),HOWEVER only lawful citizens would follow them anyways, and it isn’t those people we need to be worrying about.

            The fundamental fact of the matter is, bad people are going to do bad things, regardless of what tools they have at their disposal. If the preferred tool is not available, they will find another. So rather than FOCUS on the tools, maybe we should focus on the PERSON.

            Yep. The rational amongst us can agree on that. But if you say anything reasonable on this site, you are bound to be attacked by those with extremists views.

          • Fire and Adjust!

            You obviously can’t tell the difference between being attacked, and simply having someone contest your argument by making one of their own (which is called a DEBATE). But nice try attempting to decry being attacked, as you “attack” people on “this site” by trying to demonize them as “extremists”

            Kudos, you contested my point with an argument. Good for you! It was a fatally flawed argument, but a good try. You did not resort to calling me a Marxist, Hitler, Idiot, Stalin or Moron, etc. So it was not an attack.

            Unfortunately, you made a poor, and unwarranted assumption that I cannot tell the difference between debate and attacks.

            You also said that contesting an argument is not an attack, it is debate. Yet you called my statement an attack. So which is it? Debate or attack. You can’t have it both ways.

            Maybe I should have said that the attacks on this site will be DEFENDED by extremists; since you seem to have no problem with the unethical behaviour of many on this site, it stands to reason you are either guilty yourself, or you are one who holds extremist views.

            The majority on Twitchy don’t DEBATE, they attack, which is characterized by name calling and hitting below the belt.

          • Fire and Adjust!

            Accusations without supportive statements = an attack………accusations WITH supportive statements = an argument. 2 arguments happening simultaneously = debate. Not sure how much clearer anyone can make it for you

            And I have no doubt there are people on this site that attack and I make no point of defending them, HOWEVER, my response to Leopold Blooms statement was not an attack exactly for the reasons I stated above…… to which you comment to Leopold Bloom regarding my statement ” you are bound to be attacked by extremists”………… essentially attacking someone as an extremist…… so tell me again how I was an aggressor and you were not

      If everything went down as is claimed, I’m certain that Kyle would have been given pause because of the familiarity and relationship with the shooter, whereas a stranger raising a weapon on him would have caused a more alert reaction and response. I’m sickened at the attitude that it’s okay to pick on this American hero because he can’t fight back. It’s sickening to realize that these cretins have the freedom to condemn and mock him because of the blood of patriots fighting for those rights.

    Not only was Chris shot in the back by a person who as far as Chris was concerned posed no threat, I am sure the reason others were not shot is because of the bystanders who were armed which enforces the fact that armed citizens can stop mass murders.

    This is also a great example of one of the leftists’ favorite fallacies, the straw man. Nobody believes or has said that a good guy with a gun WILL stop a bad guy with a gun.

Misrepresenting the aegument to say that gun ownership provides perfect safety when the actual argument is that gun ownership means good peoole are not helpless is very dishonestand does not support the argument that banning gun ownership will make us all more safe

    • $2743723

      That is always the lefts tactic. Any conservative opinion must be 100% perfect, any deviation is considered proof that the entire position must be discarded. Any liberal opinion is inviolate no matter how flawed, since any deviation is just considered proof the position simply has not been implemented thoroughly enough yet. Utopians cannot be argued with.

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but it seems to me that libs are missing the point. Chris Kyle and his friend were in such close proximity to the killer that they probably never had a chance. I’d be willing to bet that if this guy had gone after others on the range, he would have been taken down by others who were armed. He had the element of surprise in the case of Chris and his friend. Not really comparable to Sandy Hook or the theater shootings, or the AZ shootings. The cartoon and the argument are in poor taste and intellectually childish.

    It always strikes me as funny when the suggestion that more firearms in the hands of good people will decrease violence is used by liberals as “Conservatives think good people with guns will eliminate violence altogether!” Probably just projection because, of course, they think eliminating all firearms will eliminate all violence.

    There is not a damn thing wrong with that cartoon.

    It’s not disrespecting Kyle. It is rubbing gun advocates’ faces in their worst argument. The argument they bring up over and over and over. “The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” This incident, and Newtown before it, demolish that argument. It was always stupid, and this is all the proof anyone should ever need. Real life does not run on action movie rules.
