Let's plan our "Gun Appreciation Day" celebration! I got a great idea....

....for a really BOFFO celebration, but it requires some slightly distasteful sacrifice from our African-American friends & neighbors, and our Muslim, Hindu, and Sikh friends & neighbors, which I realize is going to be a LOT to ask. But I do think it would make a WONDERFUL way to celebrate "Gun Appreciation Day," which (I'm CERTAIN it's coincidental!) also happens to be Martin Luther King's birthday.

You know, that "MLK" guy who was all into equal rights and nonviolence? Anyone remember him...?

Anyway, here's the idea:

It would be so cool if our African-American neighbors, and our Sikh, Muslim, and Hindu neighbors, could pull together little "Gun Appreciation Party" groups of right around 5-6 people, each. And definitely bring your pieces if you have them and it's legal to carry them where you are.

Then attend (as a group) the nearest "Gun Appreciation Day" celebration at your local firearms shop. Bring signs, wear festive attire! Tell everyone how excited you are to be here, and that you plan on purchasing MANY weapons! Line up at the counter to buy guns!

It will add so much to the enjoyment of all your melanin-deficient "Christian" neighbors who will be there to celebrate, too!

I realize it's a lot to ask, as you probably would cross the street to avoid them in most cases, but if you're there in a group, happy and smiling, festively attired and packing your heat, you'll be part of the celebration, and it'll be fun!

Sort of. Well, for you, anyway.

Whaddaya think?

Great way to celebrate "Gun Appreciation Day," doncha think?

eagerly,
Bright

P.S. Forum mods, I think "Gun Appreciation Day" is a "current event" so I'm putting this here. But please feel free to move it to the Gungeon if you think it's more appropriate (and/or more FUN!) there...

1. Brilliant!

If it wouldn't mean certain death for someone, your demonstration idea is right on top. I'm not being snide, I would literally love to see this happen. I just think the students might panic. Lack of melanin is very scary to some.

2. Good point. However, I'm just guessing that "GAD" celebrations...

...will, coincidentally, just happen to be the places where lots and lots of extra law enforcement happen to be on hand.

Because those silly neighbors might be, like, nervous or something...

thoughtfully,
Bright

8. Very well...

carry. I know David Koresh's neighbors were a little freaked when he started stockpiling massive arms and grenade launchers. They probably hoped (initially) that the local police could talk them into being more considerate.

4. Yesterday 1StrongBlackMan proposed declaring Feb 1st "1 Million Black Man AR-15 Buy Day".

The weapon would be banned by end of January.

6. Awesome idea!

History proves melanin-deficient really love sharing gun love with their melanin-enhanced neighbors!

9. I imagine you already know

...that the whites actually passed gun control laws making it illegal to have the weapons they now want to have legal in order to keep them out of the hands of Black Muslims, Black Panthers, gangs, etc. So, yes, I think it might make a lot of sense to remind them of that.
