Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- The NRA is holding its Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Louisville, Kentucky May 20-22 and cartoonist for the city’s best known newspaper–The Courier Journal–is welcoming the gun rights group with a cartoon of a child being crucified.

The Journal’s cartoonist–Marc Murphy–tweeted a photo of the cartoon on Sunday night and and captioned it with, “Welcome to Louisvlle, NRA. Enjoy your stay. @CourierJournal.”

The cartoon features a child hanging on a cross. The cross is scarred with what appear to be bullet holes.

Newsbusters.org reports that the cartoon was slated to run in the Monday edition of the Journal.

Time for the NRA (and all it’s members) to file a class-action lawsuit against this Un-American, ultra-liberal POS; for slander and defamation of character! Let’s see how many Demoncats rush to fill the “cash pot” to save his worthless ass..

They need to change NRA to Democrat, because ALL of the mass shootings were carried out by Democrats…..

In addition they should include a note about “Gun Free Zones”

All but two public mass shootings since 1950 have occurred in a gun free zone….

THINK about that for a minute…… maybe the REAL problem is “GUN FREE ZONES” …..

No doubt it crossed your mind when writing this story to include Mr. Murphy’s E Mail Address, or that of the Publisher of that Newspaper. A bunch of us reading your article, and are wishing that you had.

People unwilling to do what it takes to protect their family from predators, apparently have no love for their own family. We do what we do by arming ourselves, not to hurt others, but to protect from those that would do harm. People ask me “why do you carry a gun – do I expect trouble?” My answer “No, why do you wear a seatbelt? Do you expect to crash?” Obama’s request to the CDC to do a study on firearm violence, indicated that between 2.2 and 3 million violent crimes were averted annually by firearms, with the deterrent factor… Read more »

This is pure propaganda. In 2006 there were of 642 accidental firearms deaths. A relatively small amount involved children. 13 involved children up to four years old. 18 involved children 5 to 9 years old. Compare that to the 1305 children that died from motor vehicles, 651 from drowning, 348 by fire or burns. Almost 3 times drown in bathtubs.

This shows how the liberal gun control proponents use falsehoods to further their agenda.

Marc Murphy should draw some cartoon with an abortionists bloody hand receiving a check made out to planned parenthood from the federal government.

This is one of the costs of freedom. The cartoon is deplorable and in poor taste. Not to mention inaccurate. The cartoonist should be fired.
There are morons that believe that we gun owners are out after their children, when just the opposite is true. It is gun owning citizens that help keep our country free from invasion. The deterrence of an armed population is great.

The caption on the cross should read “Gun Free Zone”. It would then symbolize how the political left has been feeding our children to the criminals(along with transgender bathrooms) to promote their agenda to gain more control of the population while eliminating liberty.

An absolutely disgusting display of just how low the libs will go to fwd their agenda regardless of the facts. Ironically the Kings decree (PPD) that the Secret Service control access to the upcoming conventions by vetting attendees (background checks) by an agency they say dislikes them, AND wait for it- THEY are protected under the 1st Ammendment and therefore exempt!

This is a prime example of what is not freedom of the press. This moron uses that amendment to express his opinion. That is not what the amendment says.

Change the captioning to “Tranny bathroom use” and this would be very proper display for 0bama’s ILLEGAL “MANDATE”.
