“I’ve been going through a rough time with school and my health recently. Star vs. the Forces of Evil has been one of the big things keeping me grounded. Whenever I’m a bit depressed, it reminds me that even though things are a little weird and my life is right now a little wild, I’m going to come through this okay. Also laser puppies make everything a bit better.”
There’s a certain ring of logic to the [macro’s] premise: A vast army of patriotic gun owners might provide a check to the government. Forty-four million armed angry people (minimum) could threaten the military, even in this age of flying murderbots and boat-mounted lasers. Alas, this grand army of tyranny-hating middle-aged white dudes rests on one flimsy premise: the idea that “gun owners” are a unified block. … There’s no silent, unified army lying in wait for Obama’s mad campaign of moderate health-care reform to finally go one step too far. About 55 percent of Republicans own guns, as do 40 percent of Democrats. Oddly enough, this represents a high point in gun ownership among Democrats. Our soldiers tend to mirror the country: Half of them don’t give a fuck about politics, and the other half split pretty evenly between the two parties.
