Louisiana, where the inmates run the asylum

If you are heading to Louisiana, here are some things you need to know:

  • You need to be 18 to consume alcohol
  • You need to be 18 to get a marriage licence
  • You need a parent’s consent to get a tattoo
  • You can’t really get an abortion at any age
  • You can get an assault rifle, and carry it around openly, at 17


At age 8, Louisiana resident Abby is a bit too young to carry her gun around outside.
But when she hits 17, watch out, [insert despised minority here] people!

    You can do the same in Canada at 18 (with a license). You wouldn’t see it on the streets of any city, but you might in my rural village. Though the big difference between “us” and “them” isn’t our laws. It is our history, our society, and perhaps most importantly how we raise our children. My son doesn’t describe people by skin colour or ethnic background. It simply isn’t in his vocabulary as we didn’t teach it to him.

    • Warren says:

      You can open carry in Canada? Really?

      • Manuel says:

        Yes. A non-restricted long gun can be carried unloaded. I don’t mean you can take it to Walmart or the supermarket. But you can certainly legally walk down the street on your way to the bush or range. You don’t see people doing that because it would be stupid under most circumstances. But it is legal. Just like rifle racks in pickup trucks. It is legal to transport an unloaded rifle hanging in your rear window. The majority of people don’t these days for a variety of reasons and I certainly wouldn’t do it anywhere but perhaps in a rural setting where every 4th person is a hunter. But again it is legal. Used to be quite common too. The times changed, not the law.

          Incorrect. Firearms cannot be visible when stored in a vehicle. A firearm can only be “displayed” if properly secured an it no ammunition is present. http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/regulations/SOR-98-209/page-2.html#docCont

            but a non-restricted weapon can be transported, if it is not loaded, http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/storage-entreposage-eng.htm I assume that is what is meant if you are moving it from one area to another for use, so in a sense a “type of open carry”. If a non-restricted firearm is left in an unattended vehicle, it must be unloaded and either locked in the trunk or a similar lockable compartment, or put out of sight inside the locked vehicle http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/wild-sauvage-eng.htm. As you can see we are not strict as many think. Now I think our system also assumes a bit of common senmnse , if you were to be wandering around a city with an unloaded rifle you are asking for trouble. If you were wandering around the bush with a loaded rifle you are likely ok if you can justify it for wilderness protection, ” In general, the only firearms allowed for wilderness protection are non-restricted rifles and shotguns.” certain fols can get permission to carry handguns in these cases, http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-fd/wild-sauvage-eng.htm. So if you are in bear country theoretically you can carry a rifle.

          • Warren says:

            This is such horseshit. If a person carries a restricted firearm around in Canada, as they do in “open carry” states, they will get shot. And no one will say they didn’t have it coming, I suspect.

        • Andrew Fox says:

          Display of Non-Restricted Firearms
          8 An individual may display a non-restricted firearm only if it

          (a) is unloaded;

          (b) is rendered inoperable by means of a secure locking device or is in a container, receptacle or room that is kept securely locked and that is constructed so that it cannot readily be broken open or into; and

          (c) is not displayed with and is not readily accessible to ammunition that can be discharged from it.

          • lance mclean says:

            perhaps it is horseshit, but a Key word is restricted, many rifles look like restricted but are non-restricted see here http://www.cabelas.ca/product/82592/gsg-stg-44-schmeisser-22-lr-semi-auto-rifle and here http://www.cabelas.ca/product/80265/mossberg-715t-tactical-flat-top-semi-auto-rifle both perfectly legal to carry/transport to the area of use, and walking and carrying is transporting. Now like I said I think there was a bit of common sense that was thought to be inherent in the system whiich may no longer be there with the general public . As well we have guns like above which are made to mimic assault rifles and to most those rifles are not “hunting rifles and are meant for something much more sinister. Personally I see no need for this but it is what it is, my fathers good ole Coey magazine fed bolt action 22 could do anythig that these can except for the rate of fire but then any semi auto rifle would have same high rate of fire. That being said common sense would tell a sensible person that if you are carryng it downtown Toronto, any gun (even airsoft) would look highly suspicious and likely get one self arrested if not shot, rural Canada walking with a 22 to head out into the bush not so much, riding a horse in bear country with a shotgun again ok. In Canada you can carry a legally obtained, non-restricted rifle to the place it is to be legally used otherwise you could never hunt.

  2. Peter says:

    With respect, Warren, I think you are pushing the gun-control button a little too hard and fast. The shooter was an ex-Marine and he wasn’t from Louisiana. If the white-hot racial tensions we are seeing in the States these days were happening up here with comparable histories, I doubt an incident like this at the hands of a Canadian Forces veteran would have been thwarted by our gun laws. Rifle ownership in Canada is actually comparatively high.

    But Obama has continued the policy of giving tanks and other military gear to racist local polices forces. He has also armed many non-military federal departments to the teeth.

    Why does the Department of Agriculture need thousands of guns? Yet that is what is routinely happening in the Obama Administration.

  4. Matt says:

    While I understand the point you’re trying to make, the girl in the photo is holding a Savage Arms Rascal Youth single shot .22LR.

    Hardly an assault rifle.

  5. Kelly says:

    A central issue is that the US law underpins the idea that it is acceptable to solve problems by showing someone with your gun. Someone on your property? Shoot em. Someone on your neighbours property? Shoot em. Someone makes you feel insecure by the way they look at you? Shoot em. Don’t feel safe on campus? Bring your loaded Glock 9 to class. You’re a nurse who doesn’t trust your patients in the hospital? Strap a snappy little .38 snubnosed revolver (like Maxwell Smart) to your scrubs. You never know . . . you might have to love a problem by shooting somebody. It’s madness.

    • Francis says:

      You hit the nail on the head.

      Its the pussification of America: Afraid of everything and everyone so they arm themselves to the fucking teeth and walk around like jumpy meth addicts with an itchy trigger finger, ready to shoot their own shadow if it startles them.

      For a country that claims to be full of brave and free people they live like they’re in the midst of a prison riot.

  6. Michael Bluth says:

    Is there any actual proof Abby despises minorities? Wouldn’t progressives be outraged at the caption on the picture if Abby weren’t a chubby white southern girl?

    Why is it that nobody bats an eye when harmful stereotypes are perpetuated against whites?

    It’s sad that no one batted an eye at a caption that would have caused outrage if the chubby girl wasn’t white and had been stereotyped so callously.

    • lou says:

      Because Jay Z and Diddy have street cred. They are allowed to glorify misogyny and guns. It’s artistic, don’t you know.

    • Richard says:

      Yes will nobody step forward to protect the dominant paradigm?

      • Michael Bluth says:

        I didn’t realize people could be a paradigm.

        Seems to me that ign’ntly judging people on their appearance and racial background is a bad thing.

        Is there a list of ethnicities that it’s ok to stereotype negatively?

  7. monkey says:

    I thought it is 21 to consume Alcohol in all 50 states or at least federal rules say highway funding gets docked if they put in younger. Mind you this is a state with drive in dacquiris and I believe allows open liquor for passengers in cars. Likewise for abortion, state laws may restrict it but roe vs. wade legalizes it federally.

    As for assault rifles, I agree there is no need for them and even if not completely banned in Canada, I would have no problem if they government did. You don’t need one of those to hunt.

    • Michael Bluth says:

      Yes it is 21 to drink across the states monkey.

      The point of the information in the caption wasn’t to provide accurate information. It was to mock the chubby, white southern girl who represents conservatism.

      Progressivism is as much about self-hate among whites as anything else.

      The despised minority in this case is white, conservative southeners.
