Our Post Gun Control America


On Wednesday, Congress voted down the big gun control law created in the aftermath of Newtown.  So where do we go next?  Since gun-control advocates have no chance of pushing any effective law through, we have no choice but to embrace the philosophy of gun-rights advocates:
  • It’s impossible to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals.
  • The more guns we have, the better.
  • Gun-free zones only create targets for the criminally insane.
There is one gun-free area that we have to deal with first: airplanes.  For too long, the government has kept weapons out of our skies.  In our post-gun control America, we’ll have to change that.

Everyone on domestic and international flights will be required to have a firearm at all times.  Maybe we can put AR-15 rifles under every seat.  Imagine a terrorist tries to hijack a plane and, suddenly, everyone on board points a gun at him!  Of course there will be problems, namely: explosive decompression.  Airplanes are incredibly fragile and tend to fall out of the sky when punctured.  In other words, if a single bullet misses its target…
 
Or passes through its target and keeps going…
 
 
Or if a gun fires by accident…
 

 
Or if someone wants to kill himself and take everyone on the plane with him…
 

 
Or if anyone wants to murder someone and doesn’t care if other people get hurt…
 
Well, a whole lot of people will die.  Come to think of it, that’s not all that different from the way things are in America, right now with our current gun laws.
