What Mark Evanier thinks of the NRA

Some more on the mind of Evanier. He doesn't update his Twitter account that much, so it wasn't too hard to find these two tunnelvisioned attacks on an NRA spokesman plus one more posted last month:



Is that all he can say?

As mentioned before, Evanier worked for Jack Kirby, who fought in WW2 and undoubtably used firearms. And one of Kirby's most important co-creations with Stan Lee was Nick Fury, who first debuted in Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos in 1963, set during WW2, and became an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D in the present soon after. And he was one Marvel protagonist who used guns quite a bit years before the Punisher gave him some competition. How does Evanier reconcile that with his negative reception of the NRA and beliefs in gun control? I'm sure he respects Kirby's creations, but does he respect the messages?

Very mysterious.

Labels: ,

"Gun control" usually means prohibiting (or severely restricting) civilian gun ownership. Jack Kirby was in the military in WWII, so Evanier presumably was OK with him carrying a weapon then. The same with Kirby's fictional creation, Nick Fury, who was a soldier in WWII and a government agent in the present. Although it must be said that most "gun control" advocates are leftists who hate the police and military as much as they do the NRA. Many of them see disarming the citizenry as the first step. Then they can disarm the police, who will no longer need weapons in a gun-free society. And international disarmament treaties will eliminate the need for armed forces. And we can then live in a Utopia, like Great Britain (where the violent crime rate has skyrocketed at the same time that crime has decreased in the US).

Guns would be as useful for finding lost contact lenses, or turning the lights back on in the SuperDome, as an "assault weapons ban" or "gun-free zone" signs have been for preventing crime.

Evanier, Michael Moore, and Rosie O' Donnell have said more things to encourage donations to the NRA than Wayne LaPierre.
