We see the obvious flaw in the argument: Guns are not Gorillas - they are two different things completely.
But others, without the context and understanding we have just think it is dumb and funny. For them, all of this theorizing about the 2nd Amendment is just background stuff.
The satire was probably written by some college kid, who just thought it was funny. I remember writing crap like that back when I was in college. You think you're so smart, when in fact, there is a - l o t to learn.
But then again, you might be right. It might just be a brainwashing operation. Some of the stuff on the onion is pretty funny. Like this one about Facebook being part of the CIA.
In my mind, that is not even satire. That is straight up truth. Facebook as part of the Military Industrial Complex. The USG being its biggest client. Chilling to think about, really.
My use of facebook is minimal.
