So last night I hit a proverbial jackpot and found Joan Peterson’s stash of anti-gun propaganda posters. This may be a running theme to post images, and discuss them.
First this one:
Wow, this is a winner! First we have the core, of justifying the 2nd Amendment being about hunting. It obviously isn’t. Second we have claims that AR-15s which are the most popular hunting rifle in America right now aren’t used for hunting. Next we have the fallacy of Ipse dixit, or fallacy by rigorous assertion. AR-15s are used for hunting, the anti-rights people don’t like that it is a common hunting rifle, so they simply emphatically state over and over again that they are NOT hunting rifles.
Last we have the “No True Scotsman” fallacy. Where even if a hunter is using an AR-15 for successful and enjoyable hunting, this has nothing to do with the rifle, but to do with the mental state of the hunter, and obviously if you think an AR is the best rifle for taking game you’re likely “Not in your right mind”!
Also I thought I’d throw in this one:
We of course know that Joan Peterson has likely NEVER set foot in a gun shop, certainly not in the last 3 months. Gun SALE? Sorry, but paying $3,000 for a $900 Rifle, and $50 for a $20 magazine, and not being able to find ammo for even the most common firearms is hardly a sale.
And as Tam has said, they aren’t buying these rifles to simply turn them in.
I think this will be a fun series.
