So I was talking to my friend about colouring books and she showed me this one.
And then there was this page.
And finally this absolute gem!
How amazing is this book?! I want one.

Depends what you mean by “gun control” I suppose…
Neither side of the mainstream “debate” on gun control is anarchist, as is usually the case, both ‘sides’ are anti-working class, bourgeois positions. The side which says that the state should have a complete monopoly on weapons is not anarchist, for obvious reasons - anything that disempowers the working class and empowers the state is not something we can support.
On the other hand, the idea of respecting an inalienable “right to bear arms” is also not anarchist - it’s a bourgeois individualist construction, pure liberalism (ironically, given the US political vocabulary) - I can think of a million groups I’d happily disarm permanently without a second thought; nazis, for example… rapists, serving and retired police officers, rich people… I don’t think they have a “right” to weapons any more than i think they have a “right” to own land or employ wage labour.
So, ideally, we would have sensible restrictions on gun ownership and use, but under the direct democratic control of the people. I’m aware that no mainstream political party is advocating that, and I’m afraid that no mainstream political party ever will - which is one of the many reasons you shouldn’t have anything to do with them.
saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire
