How To Prank An Anti-Gunner


It’s amazing what seem people will do to get attention. I mean, when I was a kid, some kids would act up in class. Other kids would pull fire alarms. Still other kids would skip school. And other kids would tell lies.

Unfortunately, some people don’t outgrow those attempts at getting attention, and a strong argument can be made that these attention starved trouble-makers are exactly the people who grow up to be politicians.

Which brings us to Democratic Senator Martin Heinrich of New Mexico who recently repeated the tired, lame call for “common sense” gun control. To quote him exactly, he said,

There are a couple of things I can think of that I think are possible now. Increasing age limits: Certainly somebody who’s 18, 19, 20 years old shouldn’t be able to purchase an assault rifle, an AR-15, or other gas-assisted receiver firearms when they can’t buy a simple handgun, so that should be changed.

Now, if we want to have fun with an anti-gunner, maybe we should go along with Heinrich’s proposal to ban “gas-assisted receiver firearms” (which don’t exist). We should rant and rave about how terrible they are and about how many people could get hurt. We could flip out completely like anti-gunners responded to news of Trump’s election to President (which is to say, complete melt-down).

And we’ll get one of two responses. They’ll either agree with us and go all-in, buying that we have had a change of heart. If this happens, go with it, so that you can have the biggest laugh at their expense once they have left.

The other response is that they’ll back up and wonder what’s wrong with us that we are so irrationally emotional about the subject. In this case, you can laugh at them and tell them that you pranked them and ask them how it feels to hear someone babble like that. And, then, when they tell you how bizarre it is, you can tell them that that is exactly how they sound when they go off on one of their gun control tangents.

It may not change their mind, but it will give you an opportunity to have some fun at their expense, and, hey, we all need some fun in our lives, right?


  1. If they change the age to twenty one then they should change the age of military service. I was drafted at 19 and at that time the voting age was 21. If your old enough to die for this country you should be considered an adult !!!

    • Absolutely but you missed a few things. If one is not mature enough to purchase/possess firearms under 21 they are not mature enough to drive, serve in the military as you say and especially they are not mature enough to vote.

  2. If they change the age to buy a rifle or shotgun to 21 They will have to change the Voting age to 21 and the age to enlist in or be drafted into the Military to 21. The reasons being if at 18 a person is not mature enough to own a rifle or shotgun that same person is not mature enough to know who they want to vote for and at 18 the same person is not mature enough to handle and use the types of weapons the military has. Just saying.!!

  3. Enlisted in the Marines @ 17. Spent my 18th B-day on a night live fire exercise (with tracer bullets) how fun was that?! Anyway, changing the age to BUY weapons to 21 would be ok with me, provided that there was an exemption for our military members to purchase prior to age 21.
    It would throw the leftwing a bone and still reserve the RESPECT & Integrity owed those young men and women now serving our great country.

    • If those who serve in the military are mature enough to purchase a firearm anyone 18-21 is mature enough. If they are not mature enough then they are not mature enough to vote or drive.

  4. Red Rictor says to throw the anits a bone. Ha, it is high time we reclaim some of the many bones we have thrown them over the years while getting nothing in return.
