The 'Toonists Are Right: Enough!!!!!

Several of this blogger's favorite 'toons in the Austin Fishwrap's funny papers section participated in a recent e-mail appeal from Mayors Against Illegal Guns. This group was co-founded in 1996 by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino; today, more than 950 mayors from 45 states as well as 1.5 million grassroots members have joined the movement. Recently, the daughter of the slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal confronted Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) at Ayotte's town meeting. The incident was reported by the HuffPo in today's issue. The mourning daughter, Erica Lafferty, demanded that Ayotte explain her vote against background checks for firearm purchases. Duh. If this is a (fair & balanced) call for firearms confiscation, so be it. Bring it on, Gun-Nuts!
