NRA PSA?

I like my satire like I like my coffee- black, bitter, and scalding. Disqus commenter "Ted Nugget", the proprietor of the gloriously juvenalian website USA Holiday Planner brought to my attention his brilliant satire of both NRA culture and the Civil Defense paranoia of the Cold War era. Riffing on the mind-melting "Duck and Cover" children's films of the fifties (in an aside, my 7th grade history teacher mentioned these and told us that instead of "duck and cover", the only appropriate response to a nuclear bomb strike is "bend w-a-a-a-y over and kiss your ass goodbye"), Mr Nugget has produced a public service announcement (sans guitars) for a modern age. Here is the righteously mad Duck and Return Fire:





Mr LaPierre would approve, missing the point entirely.

"National Rifle Ass Ociation" is a nice touch.

I grew up about a mile from Hamilton AFB, one of the primary west coast TAC interceptor bases with squadrons of F-102s and later F-106s, fighters designed to intercept Soviet strategic bombers. So we KNEW from very early childhood that we were sitting at ground zero, that our neighborhood was going to soak up a solid dozen Megatons at least, so we never even considered ducking and covering. It was comforting in a way, knowing you'd never even see the flash before being vaporized.

As to the content of the piece, this is the part that is so patently crazy. I mean, if you're the industry lobby for the firearms manufacturing industry, it makes sense that you would push legislation that would encourage more people to buy more guns. You might even be able to make a logical case for legislation that encourages people to CARRY those guns. But what the HELL is the point of legislation that encourages people to USE their guns? That's just sick...

That's why he needs the extended magazine.
