What If the Poor Decide to Use All The Guns They Can't Eat?

At some point, the insistence of the repugs and guntards on preventing the poor from spending their tiny welfare allotments on anything except guns is going to backfire.

Rude Pundit:

If you're middle-class, you can negotiate your way out of a great deal of the grief. If you're poor, you are subject to the whims of a justice system that seeks to punish you for existing.

At some point, we're going to have to do something about how we treat the poor in this country. If the nation doesn't, if politicians continue to ignore the issue of poverty, the poor might just realize that all those guns the NRA has guaranteed they can bear might have another use.  And the United States will have no one to blame but itself.
