Arming Lady Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor… and your ammo. That seems to be Lady Liberty’s new motto in our latest cartoon, but what do these tourists — and you — have to say about it? Let us know in the form of a clever caption below.

Our editors will pick one caption to add to the official Caption the Cartoon Winners’ Gallery.

Cartoon by Norman Dapito.

    I think this has something to do with that new “Stand Your Ocean” law…

    Well, that’s one way to discourage immigration.

    I think the inscription on the pistol reads “Extremism in the Defense of Liberty is No Vice.”

    Looking at this just makes me feel sad. More sneering polarization from the media cult. And I am a solid, life long fan of you Mr Moyers, in most things.

    Now that they don’t have slavery, what do they need the 2nd amendment for? Now they are enslaved by their own weapons.

    Maybe they should change her name to “Lady Jingoism.” It would make sense, since the most militaristic nation on the planet also has the most heavily-armed population in the world, in both absolute and per-capita terms.

    She looks OK. But it’s totally passé, and pret-a-porter.
