If (New Orleans Saints coach Sean) Payton had his druthers, we’d live in a country without guns.
“Two hundred years from now, they’re going to look back and say, ‘What was that madness about?’ “ Payton said. “The idea that we need them to fend off intruders … people are more apt to draw them (in other situations). That’s some silly stuff we’re hanging on to.”
Carol Bowne could not be reached for comment.
Also, that comment about the .45 is just…I got nothing. For fuck’s sake you could shoot somebody with a .22 and they’d bleed out if you hit them in the right place!
And then there’s this:
“We could go online and get 10 of them, and have them shipped to our house tomorrow.”
This is what is commonly known as a filthy lie. Once upon a time you could do this, but it was halted by the Gun Control Act of 1968. But of course, this is completely expected, or at least it should be. Lions roar, dogs bark, and anti-gunners lie. If they did not lie, they would not be anti-gunners. It really is just that simple.
“I just know this: Our city is broken.”
Yes, it is. But there’s a hell of a lot more wrong with New Orleans than the Second Amendment.
And of course, this is yet another example of someone who has more than enough money to live in a gated community and afford the best armed security money can buy calling for the disarmament of the rest of us. Fuck him and the horse he rode in on.
