Is this really a gun control picture?

My first reaction to this picture where it says "Good People! No Guns!" was that it is too bad that the good people didn't have a gun. Of course, the statement at the bottom makes the conclusion clear, but it would have been nice if someone had asked this six year old what the solution to these good people not having guns is. This contest was held by Flashbunny.org. I confess that I am somewhat dubious that this was done by a six year old boy. The hand writing is too well done.

Possibly I should put up a similar contest.

I gotta say...when I saw this, I thought it was an attempt at an ironic ridicule of gun control.

"Good People! No Guns!" - lying in a pool of blood.

Just seemed too ridiculous to be a serious 'gun control' picture.

I also do not believe it was drawn by a six year-old.

Maybe in dog years?

It seem unanimous right now that a six year old didn't do this. I almost believe that the misspelling of "you're," while done to help convince us that it was a child, actually works the other way. How many children at age 6 use contractions like that?

It is completely ironic and very clever, too. The giveaway is the kid's name: "Chuckie Bloomer" - sound familiar? Some famous anti-gun Senator, perhaps?

Of course, the point is that the anti-gun crowd's arguments are about on par with the reasoning power of a six-year-old...

Flashbunny has always been extremely pro-gun - not to mention funny!

Just noticed - drawn by "Chuckie Bloomer"???

Come on...that's gotta be a joke...a pseudonym hybrid of Chuckie Shumer and Bloomberg - our *favorite* guys ;-)

The 'kid' even drew little black dots for bullet holes in the corpses...and what 6 y/o knows about carjacking? The anti-NRA icon is a stretch too.

That seals the deal...I'm calling BS.

PS. I'm still hoping that this is really an attempt at ridiculing gun control advocates...

Finally, notice that this competition was run by flashbunny.org...

...which doesn't seem like a rabid left-wing anti-gun site...to put it mildly.

I think this story is done ;-)

I agree about the use of the contraction "you're." And, I couldn't print like that when I was six!

After looking around the Flashbunny site a bit, I'm almost certain that it's satire. The site seems pretty pro-gun, and has a bunch of funny stuff like this:

I checked out the Flashbunny.org site. It's obviously not anti-gun. In context, it's obviously satire. And if you notice on the full resolution picture, there's a question mark in "Good People?" and an exclamation mark in "No Guns!" I read it as satire showing that Good People with no guns = Dead People.

I can't believe you people are even wondering on this..... it's Flashbunny! I've been going to Flashbunny and using it to educate the small-minded for YEARS. One of their best done movies (the Flash movies are WAY better than the excellent images) is "The Gun Show Loophole".

So the moral of the story is what? If you're a good person and you don't have a gun you will die if you are attacked by a gunman?? The idea of that alone makes me want to have a weapon on me at all times.
