Archie Bunker explains how to prevent school shootings.

Well, not exactly. Just substitute the word "children" or "teachers" for "passengers."

I believe this clip is from 1971, and the only thing that's changed is that now, instead of LAUGHING at this idiocy, we actually have CONGRESSMEN advocating it!

1. This is the most fucked up argument they make

Their logic gets so twisted, and they drink their own kool-aid so they believe it.

10. Where is the evidence to support this argument?

How many times have mass shootings ended when a potential victim shot the attacker? Ever?

4. In 1971 that was a joke - having some fun with Archie Bunker.

Today, it is actually policy for a large portion of the country.

5. Gomer Pyle Here Is Dumber Than A 5th Grader

I seriously can't believe how retarded he and virtually all the republicans are, about everything!
They really do not care about the American People, at all. In fact they don't care what happens to
America, as long as they "win" whatever that means. I am simply sick and disgusted with how ludicrous
and damaging the republican party is to our country AND how Obama won't or doesn't know how to negotiate.
Enough is enough, we need politicians who have Americas' back. No more Faux democrats shall be elected! Only true progressives!!!

14. Looney Gohmert Pyle is dumber than a box of rocks

Even bags of hammers, fence posts, and doorknobs are smarter than this pumpkinhead.

13. It's amazing how much we've degenerated, isn't it?

When I was young and idealistic I imagined that the march of the human race towards rational enlightenment only went in one direction, and that, once having renounced these kinds of attitudes as being stupid, we'd never go back to them again. Little did I know that 40 years later it would be ELECTED OFFICIALS who were saying these things, and not straw man comedic figures.

9. I've known some teachers you DO NOT want to have guns.

The principal would have to beg the teachers, "Please don't shoot any kids today."

12. Heheh! THat's pretty good.

But I'm sure all the gun nuts think this wouldn't happen to them. They all envision themselves as Clint Eastwood in 'A Fist Full of Dollars.'
