Guns Are for the Elect, and Their Mercenaries!

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

“Rep. Rangel: Law abiding citizens just shouldn’t have to carry guns.
Reporter: But, you’re protected by guns all over the place here at the Capitol.
Rep. Rangel: Well, that’s a little different. I think we deserve… I think we need to be protected down here.”
– Rep. Charlie Rangel (D), New York City
(If this isn’t hypocrisy at the highest level, I don’t know what is.)

My Commentary: Silly peasants. Guns are for the elect, and their mercenaries!

(note: though I previously shared a slightly different version of this artwork in June of 2017, within my post, “To the State, No Lives Matter…,” I still felt compelled to offer up an alternative commentary when I saw it again, due to the recent anti-gun push triggered by the latest school shooting, here in the States)
