Remember, since they write comics ...

... and have thousands of followers on Twitter, they're SO "smart!" Here's the gnomish Dan Slott attempting to make yet another gun control point:


Uh, Dan? Slavery, while an institution at the time of the Founding, was ended shortly after the Civil War with the 13th Amendment. But even before that, the Founders recognized the eventual demise of the vile institution, and at least set up legal means to outlaw the trade.

Can you show us a similar exercise with regards to firearms, Danny?

That's what I thought. But remember, everybody -- Slott just writes comicbooks. He ain't no historian, that's fer sher. Nor a legal scholar:


"Perceived rights." The 2nd Amendment protects an individual's "perceived right," according to Slott, to bear arms. Even though the Supreme Court has affirmed the right (not "perceived"), at least twice, within the last fifteen years.

You're not a very smart man, Dan. Despite the comfy little Bubble you live in, and despite your legion of [mostly] mindless minions. After all, you just write comics.

It's funny watching Dan Slott's dumb tweets being published from an account that features the Silver Surfer's avatar. I'm looking at a character that is a philosopher of the stars but reading the words of a man who is only a philosopher in his own mind.

Couldn't resist: @DanSlott @macattack50 So is the right to free speech a "perceived right"? What's the difference between "perceived" and "actual" rights?

That was great ferninphilly, it seems Dan can never win when someone brings out facts. I wonder if the nut will ever respond or will he cut and run as usual.

Pretty sure he's gonna block me. Hube- HUGE fan of the site (I used to live in Elkton, MD- right nearby!!). Keep up the good work! (and IMHO: your best entries are those on education. Nothing against comics, pop culture- but I love hearing your thoughts on education as a practitioner of the art and science of educating our youth!).

Many thanks, fern, for following CoR and for the kudos! Much appreciated! :-)

And yeah, it's a good bet Slott will block you ...
