It just doesn’t get better as it goes on. MAN that is badly written. At least the anti-NRA episode was funny ni places. And the NRA threw Homer out for being irresponsible.
Looks like this has all the dialogue from the entire sequence:
I’d be fine with it if they were actually funny–but these sorts of things often say more about those making the comments than they do about their intended target. In this case, it’s pretty obvious that whoever wrote them has no clue what they’re talking about. Even someone not terribly sympathetic to the NRA could see that.
“Those arenít rights! Or are they? Who can say! Thatís the funny thing about the law — you never have the slightest clue what it is.”
Well, gun owners tend to know the law. Anti-gun people? Rarely. As evidenced by most of the ham-fisted dialogue at the above link.
While I am sure the personal opinions of some of the writers in both the show and the game may have anti gun sentiments, I think gun advocates are missing the point of this. This is making fun of the antis, by making the arguments so over the top they are showing how stupid they are. Gun rights advocates may be a little sensitive to these comments on our rights, as I have heard similar crap from the anti gun crowd. I think only the most stupid really believe this garbage, and you’re not going to reason with them anyway.
