On guns and knives

Dear Editor:

I don’t know who’s the bigger joke: the so-called president saying bad people of Colorado don’t get high-capacity magazines and do very bad things to very good people, when every state that borders us sells high caps. Just a few hours’ drive, and you can fill up your car with all the bam-bam you want.

Or North Korea, threatening us with nuclear war. Hey, dummy, here’s a hot tip for you. Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. We’ve got more tomahawk cruise missiles than you have grains of rice. Oh, and we got these things called nuclear-powered submarines that just one has more dear lord on it than all of World War II.

Strange times, people.
