As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “TRUTHgasm,” and originally posted it to the wall of family, along with commentary…

“Gun control: Because as long as we get to vote, what could possibly go wrong?”

My Commentary: “No, no. I don’t think you understand… We voted on it, and the majority approved. That makes it legit. Minority groups, you say? Ha! They have no rights, here.”
