No innocent is an underdog when they have a gun to level the field

Though it came out years before I was born I do recall watching reruns of the Underdog cartoon show as a child.  I remember the Underdog float in the Macy’s day parade.  Why the sudden nostalgia for a cartoon that turns 50 years old this year?  I came across the theme song the other day and it got me thinking about the world in general.

The lyrics are rather apropos for a gun site such as mine.  As such I made the following video that is amusing but also thought provoking.  The good honest people who rise to the occasion when others cry out for a hero are just regular folk.  Old, young, women, men…the only common denominator among them is that they are ARMED and therefore ABLE to fight back against those who would rob or plunder.


Hope you enjoyed that.

As a bonus here are the lyrics to the song:


When criminals in this world appear
and break the laws that they should fear
and frighten all who see or hear
the cry goes up both far and near
for Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder
fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog. Underdog!

when in this world the headlines read
of those whose hearts are filled with greed
who rob and steal from those who need
to right this wrong with blinding speed
goes Underdog! Underdog! Underdog! Underdog!

speed of lightning, roar of thunder
fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog. Underdog!


A few things I would like to point out from those lyrics.

Criminals IGNORE THE LAW, so gun control is all about controlling the law abiding and disarming them to the benefit of criminals.

And when criminals do break the law the cry goes up both far and near for SOMEONE.  This is just one of the hypocrisies of the gun control movement.  When push comes to shove they WANT a law abiding citizen to save them when the cops are minutes away.

The “hearts that are filled with greed” in this little song is just a reference to the nature of criminals.  They are bad and will be bad.  Even if gun control WORKED the criminals would just arm up in numbers and beat the weak and powerless in order to gain what they want.  You saw evidence of that in the video with gangs rolling heavy. The senior citizens in my video who fought off their attackers were OUTNUMBERED and DECADES older than the criminals.  Their guns evened the playing field.  Gun control advocates would make them victims of the mobs.

“To right this wrong with blinding speed.”   The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.


And finally, “speed of lightning, roar of thunder, fighting all who rob or plunder” if that is not a gun in the hands of the law abiding I don’t know what is.
