When Jeffrey Rowland's quasi-autobiographical webcomic "Overcompensating" recently printed a strip about guns -- and an accompanying t-shirt reading "Keep Your Bullets Out of My Body
" -- readers could have been forgiven for thinking he was taking a stand in support of gun control.
He quickly clarified, however, that he was not anti-gun so much as he was anti-getting shot: "I don't think people shouldn't be allowed to own guns. I just don't believe they should be able to creep up next to me when I am in line at Cat Food Hut and shoot me back of the head."
Now, Rowland has declared it to be "Guns Week
" at "Overcompensating," and plans to explore the divisive issue in more detail. The first installment asks whether or not it is unduly burdensome for the government to ask people to fill out a form if they want to own more than 300 guns, and because this is America, I'm assuming this is a real thing that people fiercely debate and not a funny joke.
