Truth

Just once I’d like to hear someone in NRA leadership admit to this.

My apologies for being cynical, but this is what I see. The Trump camp appears to be guiltier than Team Hillary at this point but that’s probably only because he’s behind in the polls. It’s sad but not at all surprising.

Here’s an old Whiteouts about guns:

And another one from last fall about our inability to find the political will to overcome the money and influence of the NRA:

I don’t have the citation for this handy but about 80% of the American people favor bans on assault weapons and expanded background checks. And I’m sure the percentage is similar for prohibiting those on a terror watch list from purchasing weapons.

Contact your reps and make your voice heard. These steps won’t solve the problem–it’s way more complex than that. But they can begin to make a difference while still allowing those who want guns to have them for sport, hunting and protection.

Alright. That’s enough.

Way too much regulation in the theatre these days…

We are now so polarized that we can’t even pass legislation that makes sense because it would be seen as a “loss” by the powerful lobbyist groups that control our political system. Sigh.

I have mixed feelings about gun control, but I am completely against GUM control.

This cartoon is appearing today in the Beachcomber, a twice-monthly local newspaper in Long Beach, CA. A few weeks ago I sent a link to this blog to Jay Beeler, the editor of the Beachcomber. He liked the cartoons and wanted to support a local Long Beach artist, so he agreed to run a whiteouts cartoon in each issue.

Growing up I idolized folks like Charles Schulz (Peanuts), Gary Larson (The Far Side), and Bill Waterson (Calvin and Hobbes), and dreamed of being a newspaper cartoonist. It’s not the LA Times, but I’ve realized that dream and it makes me very happy.

I’m aiming for even bigger things but if this is as far as it goes, I’ll be grateful and content.
