Peter Griffin found out that his son had a bigger penis so he started trying all these ways to compensate. One of the things he did was join a gun club. They showed a gun safety video where it made fun of the idea of introducing kids to guns at an early age. Basically just the usual "guns are dangerous" and "everyone who owns a gun is making up for something".

You realize that it's a cartoon ... and it's a comedy.

Yea, but didn't you see that Jesus and Moses used guns to conquer the Romans?

There is also an episode with a progun slant too. TEOTWAWKI type scenario and they burn all their 'evil' guns only to be taken over by aliens.

Satire is the best way to change people's minds.
Political cartoons, etc are all very powerful.
They allow you to caricature your enemies...ever seen the way gun owners are represented in political cartoons?
Reminds me of the old cartoons of Jews and Blacks.

There may have been a FG episode of that, but I know for sure there is a Simpson's Treehouse of Horror]/i] episode like that.

it's a cartoon. Some of yo guys take this gun stuff way to seriously. Like the people who didn't like King Kong because they precieved an anti-gun slant. Just sit back, watch the cartoon and laugh. If you are so personally offended by it, don't watch it.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Se­riously. Get some thicker skin. Family Guy is hilarious. Like South Park, they make fun of EVERYONE and EVERYTHING. Because of this - one in awhile they make fun of something that you like.

Doesnt mean you have to rush out and express your outrage on the interweb.

And yes - there was a Family Guy where after the crash of civilization of 2000, Peter founds a new city around an old Twinkie factory. He later makes guns out of their irrigation pipes. The people throw them out and burn the guns. Just then, Mutant Stewies attack! "Get the guns, they are our only hope!"

And yeah - the Simpsons had something similar - they got rid of all their guns, only to have the ghosts of Billy the kid and friends come back and terrorize them all.

Anyway. The moral of the story is - if you watch shows that make fun of as manythings as Family Guy, you need to either not watch, because your psyche is too delicate, or laugh at yourself and know that on the next show they will make fun of gays and jews.

That or start your letter writing campaign - but that FG episode is like 4 years old at least.

Ban Family Guy.

The episode aired originally back in 99 before the show was cancelled

+1 to all the "lighten up, get a grip/thicker skin" comments

My favorite part was at the range when the Stormtrooper couldn't hit the Luke Skywalker target.

"Jesus and Moses used guns to defeat the Romans"

"The NGA does not endorse the use of guns. You should not own, touch, handle, or clean a gun."

That was hilarious. They also shit all over my right to own large penis shaped automobiles. I gots to get working on my 'letter'!!!

what really does piss me off is the people that say how bleeding heart and offended people are at everything and then the moment anything goes against anything they think they freak the fuck out


its a cartoon and a funny one. God damn, get out of the house more often.
