Packing for Peace At the Republican National Convention

guns

We all know that the best way to keep the peace in a place full of angry men is to allow them to openly display weapons. There doesn’t seem to be any doubt of that axiom discernible in the communications of the Party and so I have to wonder why, when candidates like Drumpf pretend to be worried about violence at his speeches, he doesn’t propose the obvious to his followers and his retinue. Pack heat and keep the peace.

A petition posted to Change.org is asking for open carry of guns to be permitted at the Republican National Convention in July. I’m all for it and not just because it’s time the Wild West Republicans put their safety where their mouths are.  It’s because I see science as the ultimate arbiter of truth. It’s time for a test.

RECOGNIZE OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO OPEN CARRY FIREARMS AT THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION AT THE QUICKEN LOANS ARENA IN JULY 2016

The fact that the choice of venue, the Quicken Loans Arena,  does not allow guns or any other weapons concealed or otherwise, makes me suspect that as usual for such Republican rationalizations: It’s different when we do it. It’s OK to carry guns in Kindergarten, but not where any Republicans might be at risk. Ohio, of course is an open carry state – something that may shock the more passionate gun control advocates, but Ohio is hardly alone.  It’s just that few people openly carry guns unless they’re on a hunting trip, and we don’t have enough examples of how all those good guys with guns make things smoother and more mellow.   And so it falls to the NRA and its ally, the GOP to show us what a great idea it would be if everyone were decked out like Gene Autry or Hopalong Cassady because the total lack of violence would prove that they’ve been right all along and the wimpy gun grabbers were, well, just wimpy.

So go for it Patriots!  Time to show us all and pack the halls with guns aplenty.  Make it look like Pancho Villa was holding a rally — wait, that’s a bad image – too many Mexicans. Make it look like Pickett’s Charge.  I dare ya!

It’s a hoax petition. These guys took credit for it.

One can only hope they will blow each other away until none are left with penile substitutes hanging off their girlish hips.

I think open carry is fantastic. Makes it easy to find the “little dickers” to make fun of.

I’m Charles Darwin and I approve this message!

I’m looking forward to awarding the prestigious 2016 Darwin award to the GOP.
