Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Just when I thought the Conservaloon Gun Crowd couldn't get more obnoxious they decide to make "rape" a punchline to promote guns. Genius!

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Now I'm not a person that hates all guns in all circumstance and I have owned many guns in my lifetime but I do think we should have sane laws like universal back round checks, mental health checks, required training etc. and an assault weapons ban along with clip size restrictions.  I don't think turning rape into a punchline is furthering the discussion nor lends credibility to the argument. It's disgusting, in fact. I'll share some of the winning entries...

#LiberalTips2AvoidRape since guns are evil call the cops and enjoy the next 10 mins
Yeah, that's one of my favorites. Takes me back to the old "lay back and enjoy it days" ah memories...

#LiberalTips2AvoidRape disguise yourself as Hillary, Michelle, Debbie, Nancy, or, well hell I guess any lib will do. #TGDN
Okay, more fail.

I think you get the idea of just how genius the jokes are. But have they learned nothing from the last elections? Rape isn't a winning topic for them and this is certainly not going to help their cause...at all.
