Mel Gibson Loses Custody…of His Guns
I’m sure you’ve heard of all of the crap Mel Gibson is going through right now. If you haven’t, have you had your face buried in the sand for the past couple weeks? The latest development in the story is that now Mel Gibson has to turn over all of his guns because he’s too dangerous to have them.
I was originally tempted to do this entire post with nothing but terrible movie puns (we wouldn’t want him to turn someone into the man without a face, the m4 Patriot, Mel Gibson – here’s your sign, etc.) but the more legitimate news sources took care of that for me (LA Judge strips Mel Gibson of his lethal weapons, Mad Mel). So, in keeping with the slightly political leanings that I have going on, time to comment on how I feel about Mel and his firearms.
This is a good example of where I draws the Line of Sanity between libertarianness (not a word) and craziness. I consider myself really pro-gun, but as soon as someone starts threatening someone with it who doesn’t deserve to be threatened their 2nd amendment rights are forfeit. As a pro-gun guy, why should I let some idiot who is clearly mentally disturbed ruin it for the rest of us? Mel has problems, and the last thing the gun lobby needs is some stupid insane guy accidentally having the safety off with a round in the chamber and therefore blowing off some innocent girl’s head.
I’m good with my guns. Very good. They’re always locked up, always clean, and the ammo is stored separately. When they’re out of the cabinet I don’t know if I could take more precautions than I already do. I’ve practically memorized the gun laws just so that I know what is illegal and how not to do it. If there’s such thing as a model gun owner, I think I’m it.
That’s why Mel Gibson shouldn’t have guns. I have done nothing wrong; he has. Prosecute (or crucify, Passion of the Christ joke, I know, I’m hilarious) the people who deserve to be prosecuted. I’m not one of those people, so don’t treat me like one.
Two final notes – if Mel ever goes to jail they should torture him by screening every single one of his past movies for him in his cell. And, once he’s in jail, the greatest irony ever would be if he was raped by a pack of N-words.
