Now this one is amusing:
Now most images of firearms by anti-gun cartoonists are comically inaccurate. The drawings can be little more than scribbles, to highly detailed renditions. But most of the images are so technically inaccurate that anybody with a rudimentary understanding of firearms will laugh at the silly image.
Now this cartoon, it appears the cartoonist decided to actually look at real-life pictures before putting pen to paper, and the drawings are decent. Not perfect, but you can clearly tell that the lower “Bad” rifle is a Kalashnikov pattern rifle, likely an AK-74. Still the “Good” rifle is very obviously a Henry Rifle.
I wonder why the author decided this rifle would be the “iconic” image of a “Good” rifle, given that they are essentially a relic or collector’s item, in both the original and reproductions.
Now the irony comes that this very rifle is being discussed in the proposed New Jersey magazine ban. The new law would make it illegal to own ANY feeding device that is capable of holding more than 10 rounds. If the device is permanently attached to the rifle then the firearm itself becomes contraband.
Under this new law it would be perfectly legal to own an AK-74 so long as the owner only used 10 round magazines, but the Henry would become impossible to own.
I doubt the cartoonist sees the irony in this.
