I've never found the anti-gunners "guns are a penis substitute" argument to even rise to the level of worth serious debate. The most that I will do is make fun of the argument: "Then what does it say about most gun owners that they want the smallest possible handgun? And what does it say about women gun owners? For that matter, what does it say about you, wanting to take away our guns?" But count on Mayor Daley of Chicago to combine vulgarity, sexual innuendo, and perversion in a single sentence. From the May 20, 2010 Chicago Sun-Times:
Often when Mayor Daley makes the case for what he calls "common sense gun laws," he stands before a table full of guns seized by Chicago Police.As a commenter over at Arms and the Law observed (sarcastically):
The show-and-tell was the same today, when Daley was asked how effective Chicago's strictest-in-the-nation handgun ban can possibly be when the city's homicide rate is rising and an off-duty Chicago Police officer was gunned down during an attempted robbery.
The mayor picked up a rifle from the table and sarcastically told the Chicago Reader reporter, "If I put this up your butt, you'll find out how effective it is. If we put a round up your, you-know. . . . [Confiscating] this gun saved many lives. It could save your life."
Say what you will about Mayor Daley, he is always a classy guy.
