YJ12, I agree 100% with your analysis and thoughts from the secret service reference on down. I knew from the first day that this conversation should go towards mental health, and not guns. I hope it does, I've been pretty impressed so far that it has had a lot of attention on mental health. Helping people and/or protecting safety does not have to mean locking people up, either.
I've done just a minor bit of research on the poster. I haven't figured it out yet. I should qualify my claim that it is a joke, because it is one of 3 things and it's not clear which yet: 1) out and out joke, 2) social comment by gun rights supporters with some irony on modern society and our many "things" we enjoy, or 3) far left ramblings. I don't think it is #3 at all, because it would have been worded quite differently.
Anyway, I'm taking it as a joke, obviously with some commentary behind it. The internet is full of funny, and no so funny, attempts at humor and social comment now.
