4 Good Reasons to Preserve the 2nd Amendment

by Mike Flugennock Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2000 at 8:22 PM

Editorial cartoon reflecting on government behavior in Philadelphia -- as well as DC, Seattle, and elsewhere -- and to remind the People of their responsibilities for measures of citizen and community self-defense.

"Four Good Reasons to Preserve the Second Amendment"
political comix by Mike Flugennock, at

If you thought "Gandhi is Dead" was grotesque and gross -- if you thought "When Masks Are Outlawed" was excessively soaked in testosterone -- then you'll pound your fingers raw posting flames over this latest and greatest, in which Mikey reminds us of the sheer idiocy of support for Federal and State gun control laws -- all of which are aimed at citizens, not government -- when the governments that propose these laws are themselves responsible for the ongoing brutality and oppression against citizens in L.A., New York City, D.C., Seattle, Philly and elsewhere; and in which Mikey calls on his friends and comrades to examine themselves and decide if they'll have what it takes, when the day comes, to put down their puppets and pick up their guns -- and, if they don't, to step aside and let some real revolutionaries take over who _do_.

While the USA approaches a state dangerously close to Spain in the 1930s, or Argentina in the 1970s, the Movement continues to hog-tie itself tighter than a Philly cop with "nonviolence" dogma; this cartoon reminds us of the importance of preserving the 2nd Amendment and our right to choose to arm ourselves and rise up when a State becomes so brutal, so arrogant, so unaccountable, that we're forced to take up arms, to stop being "activists" and become revolutionaries.
