Recently, Justice Breyer was robbed but more importantly, the gun-control crowd was robbed as well. A machete-wielding thug robbed Breyer and his wife while they were vacationing in their home in the West Indies. It's too bad the robber used a machete. Now the gun-control crowd can't scream like banshees about taking away our guns.They would have delighted standing atop on their righteous indignation about the backwood hill-billy hayseeds and their guns.
When the robber used a machete instead of a gun, it robbed the anti-gun people a chance of plastering such headlines as "ARMED GUNMAN ROBS JUSTICE BREYER." Instead, all we got was a tepid "Breyer robbed at West Indies vacation home."
This incident reminds me of a gun-control argument Archie Bunker and his daughter were having. After the daughter rattled off a statistic about how many people were killed by guns each year, Archie asked her "Would it make you feel better if they were pushed out of windows?"
