Cool comic stip.  Just found out about it today, definitely worth checking out.

Doonesbury decides to revisit the Starbucks open carry topic in another useless strip:

Doonesbury – Source

Yahoos… Morons… loudmouth gun owners?  The tone hasn’t really changed…  Holy his comics are boring.

I am not familiar with the characters in Doonesbury, so I looked “Leo” up.  According to Wikipedia’s list of characters:

Toggle (real name Leo DeLuca) – a veteran of the Iraq war. Toggle, a young heavy metal fan, was wounded in an ambush while serving as Ray Hightower’s driver, and has returned home with aphasia and a loss of sight in one eye. B.D., his former commanding officer, often checks in to see how he is doing. While recovering from his injuries, Toggle met Alex Doonesbury over the Internet and has become her boyfriend. He has considered attending Walden under the new GI Bill, but came away from Zipper’s tour unimpressed.

Seeing as Leo fought in the Iraq war, I believe he would have used the M240 not the M60 which Trudeau mentions in the comic strip.

Trudeau sure knows how to beat a stereotype to death.

If you missed all the previous anti-gun Starbucks comics he did in March, you can find them HERE

The Bushmaster ACR is sure a nice looking rifle, I just can’t stomach the price tag.

Check out the videos for the field strip and overview:

Looks like 6 days worth of Anti gun Starbucks comics was the magic number for him.

We can all go back to ignoring that poor excuse for a comic again.

The whole 6 day set:

Day 1 & 2 – HERE

Day 4 – HERE

Apparently there is a “Ask Garry Trudeau” section on the Doonesbury site.  Someone asked the following question:

It is clear from this week’s series that GBT is a knee-jerk liberal gun-hater. Why?
— R.S., Davenport, IA

And got this lame answer from one of Garry’s aides:

GBT does not hate guns. He grew up in a family of hunters and sport shooters — his grandfather had over 20 shotguns and rifles — and joined the NRA as a kid. He got a .22 when he was seven, a shotgun at 12, and his first deer rifle at 16. The NRA’s main message at that time was gun safety, and he was completely on board. He got their magazine, and competed in NRA marksmanship events, winning several medals. When GBT moved to the city he took one of his guns with him, and within a few months it was stolen out of his house. He parted ways with the NRA when it ceased to be a sporting association and turned into an insane political lobby. (Source)

What I would like to tell his aide:

Way to skirt around the question.  The very first sentence is “GBT does not hate guns”

You continue on with something like… His grandfather used to have guns, then he got some *blah* *blah* *blah* NRA *blah* *blah* *blah* NRA *blah* NRA *blah* NRA is insane.

Huh?  You didn’t even answer the question.  All you did was talk about the NRA too much, then get your dig in that it is an “insane” political lobby.

I guess his aides drink the same kool-aid as he does.  Likely hemp or patchouli flavored :P

And it continues…

Arguably the most insulting one yet.

Apparently we are morons and yahoos, prone to violence, who carry guns only for intimidation, and their phallic (WTF?!) resemblance.
