Utterly stupid. The Gun Lobby spent $4 million last year, and a grand total of around $70 million in the last 15 years. Put that into perspective. There were 10 industries that spent more than $70 million just last year alone! Pharmaceuticals spent $180 million, Insurance spent $113 million, Computers/Internet $96 million, TV/Movies/Music almost $90 million. Quit believing the propaganda that the Gun Lobby has so much power.
Typical media misinformation. The power of the "gun lobby" is not from money, it is from the large number of law abiding gun owners who fight the emotionally driven attacks on their rights. How widely the "gun lobby" aka the NRA is supported is rarely reported in the news media. One only has to look up the most recent Gallup Poll after Sandy Hook that shows the NRA has more popular support than President Obama. Also note the polling that shows Obama's approval rating has dropped 10 points since he has announced he is going to support new gun control. These numbers can be easily verified.
with only one and two comments for most cartoons, you would think that the censors would be happy to get any comments, and back off the PC make-the-all-like-me work.
