The comic is referring to this comic and this one.
I think it's a rather shitty thing to do to fire someone for that. OK, the timing was (unintentionally) very bad with the Virginia Tech shooting and all but come on...
I think that comic just shows how hypocrite the views of the US concerning fire arms is. "Everybody has the right to defend themselves"... Yeah right.
Against what would they have to defend themselves? Are they really as paranoid as to suspect an attacker in every fellow citizen? Is the society they live in really that rotten?
Maybe this "right" is pushing a lot of people towards collective paranoia?
One thing is for sure. It is definitely NOT making it a safer world to live in...
