As a ‘joke.’
I understand that Mayor Richard Daley is a liberal Illinois Democratic politician – which is semantically equivalent to ‘pig-ignorant about guns’ – so let’s go over some of the basics for him about firearm safety. Let’s also discuss some core assumptions that Dick needs to embrace:
- GUNS ARE NOT TOYS.
- GUNS ARE NOT PROPS.
- IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHETHER OR NOT A GUN IS LOADED, IT IS.
- IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHETHER OR NOT A GUN IS READY TO FIRE, IT IS.
- NEVER POINT A GUN AT A LIVING CREATURE UNLESS IT IS A MATTER OF EITHER SELF-DEFENSE OR RESPONSIBLE HUNTING.
- NEVER POINT A GUN AT A REPORTER.
