This was not written by a 6-year old.
Regardless of the motivation, it sucks.

"you're" is an error committed only by illiterate adults.
Give me a break!

It probably wasn't written by a six-year-old, and nobody is really supposed to believe that it was. But it's not immediately clear why you think that this rather humorous piece "sucks." I find it rather clever.

FYI, my nine-year-old routinely writes "you're" instead of "your", and vice versa. So apparently it's not only illiterate adults who confuse the two words.

It's because of the BAD people with guns is the reason why GOOD People need guns to protect themselves from the bad people!!!!

I stand by my statement.
First graders aren't exposed to contractions. By the time he is 15 (assuming he is conscientious about learning) he will not make this error, and he is even then only approaching adulthood.
I did not mean to imply that children who make that error are illiterate, but anyone over 21 who does certainly is.

Great idea, bad execution.

Real 6-year-olds, when asked what can good people can do when bad people with guns attack them?
Their real and honest answers would have been infinitely better.

Even most 6-year-olds can arrive at the common sense answer.

never read an study of a child's moral reasoning that covered guns, but I would suspect it since the author would be an adult with some sort of point of view, but here's an interesting story ...
took our son to Wild West City in New Jersey maybe 8 years ago when he was maybe 8.
its an old west main street with a picnic area, and looks the same to me as it did in the 60s when I was that age.
every day at noon the morality play is the same.
the 12 oclock stage gets robbed by some desperados.
some others in the cast gather up all the kids and deputize them as a posse. (they swear them in)
since everybody that comes there buys or brings a cap gun they are all armed (I guess this is the militia)
together they run around the place and chase down the bad guys and bring them back to the main street.
a cast member picks the kid who stands the straightest as the mayor or judge (boy, girl, it varies).
they try the bandits.
all the kids are the jury
their verdict is ALWAYS (a long-time cast members confirmed this) HANG EM.
as they are led off to the hanging, the desperados try to escape.
the posse and the bad guys have a shoot-out on main street.
the bad guys go down.
the town rejoices and everybody has a soda or lunch and buys more caps...
its still there at www.wildwestcity.com
just looked and there is a pop up saying "Wild West City's Anti-Violence Position - Since 1956, Wild West City has presented classic shows and programs reflecting the history, legend and lore of the American West in the tradition of the American Indian, Buffalo Bill, The Earp Brothers and film and television documentaries.

Although some presentations utilize firearms, Wild West City does not condone nor promote the misuse of firearms in our society today. Historically, firearms were necessary as a means of survival and are reflected as such. References or portrayals of firearms cannot be eliminated from U.S. history and, from an educational standpoint, Wild West City cannot deny their historical relevance. In doing so, Wild West City is accountable to educate the public by also demonstrating the responsible use of firearms. Through dramatic re-enactments that depict such use, firearms usage is portrayed as an appropriate act of protection for the period, not an act of senseless or random violence.*
*If preferred, special calendar programs excluding references to firearms usage are offered.
Please visit the School Groups & Organizations section on our web page."

I guess some parents objected and would rather have appealed to the UN for peace-keepers, but the kids I saw always saw it the same way ...

I think some are missing the point. This is from a pro-gun web site pointing at the absurdity of the anti-gun lobby. It is not real. Let's see, it pokes fun at the gubbmint edjamacation sistem, enforces the idea that only bad people will own guns when they are outlawed and that the anti-gun nuts rather have good people die than own guns.

Check out the rest.

Also depicts that the title phrase reflects the thinking of six year olds - and those that use such thinking need more education/wisdom.

this is funny, sneaky, and would give a gun-grabber an apoplectic fit if he was smart enough to figure it out!

Whatever. The sign is just plain wrong. Sometimes guns are needed. What am I to do when my home is invaded or my family threatened by criminals, especially gun wielding criminals?

What makes it clever is, that while touting guns as "bad" it "makes" the argument against confiscatory guns laws and shows the infantile arguments used by leftists. Geez folks ..it's signed by "Chuckie Bloomer"

It's never easy to explain humor, Mojo--what tickles my funny bone may leave you cold, and the humor goes out of anything once one starts explaining it. But I love the idea that one of the most fundamental premises of left-wing gun-grabbers--that only bad people have guns--can be so easily turned back against them.

I know, I see it now. ....The (very) brief look I initially gave this thread led me think this was a pro-gun-grabber cartoon. ...I was a bit tired at the time.

Bull-bleep. I won spelling bees as a child, taught English Lit & Comp, am an avid reader, have written thousands of pages of fiction and non-fiction, and occasionally I'll write "you're" instead of "your".

But it's nice to know the grammar police are on duty.

The message that the good people would still be alive (maybe) if they had guns is not very clear in this drawing.

It should be scrapped because it is not effective.

I had to think about it for awhile as to how this could be perceived as some pro-gun statement.....

I just noticed something, the "good people" are laying on the ground with blood coming out of them. This was done by an idiot, for sure. The moral is: Be a good person & get shot! LOL!

Kids can be pretty good at picking up the truth when it's properly packaged. My seven year old niece, upon hearing the name "Hillary", immediately says that "Hillary is the Wicked Witch of New York." >:)

"Only bad people need guns"

Well, I guess that includes soldiers, policemen, bank guards, FBI, and a host of millions of others who are supposed to be "good" because they protect us with their guns.

This could be a 6 year old of a soccer-mom. The reasoning level is about right!

My 7 year old I'm homeschooling is just now moving out of the stick figure drawing mode. The next step will be to plan the spacing of letters so that he doesn't have to crowd clusters of letters in the edges of father's day cards. The anti gun poster was executed with letter spacing to good to still be using stick figures as people. FAKE FAKE FAKE
