“Kill All They Send…

“The Modest Proposal of “Homer Simpson’s Dumber Brother”
for Gun Confiscation & A Modest Counter-Proposal
By Mike Vanderboegh Pinson, AL
“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.”
— Robert Heinlein
“Hell, let’s just start shooting the bastards. Let’s get this crap over with while I’m still young enough to march in the victory parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.”
— An American gun owner, overheard in a Birmingham, Alabama, gun store, 27 April 2007.
Career Foreign Service Officer and former Ambassador Daniel H. Simpson, now slumming in retirement as a member of the Toledo Blade & Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s editorial board, has a modest proposal entitled “The Disarming of America.” Unlike Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal” for the Irish poor to alleviate their hunger by eating their children, I think Ambassador Dan is really serious about his. A snippet:
“The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty. Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm.
