Elmer Fudd Had His Gun Taken Away

You will no longer see Elmer Fudd out hunting with his trusty old shotgun in future cartoons.

The term Fudd has been used in a derogatory manner for some time now in the firearms community. It is used derisively to indicate someone who owns firearms for recreation and hunting, but who does not actually believe in the true premise of the 2nd Amendment. Now, in a bit of irony Elmer Fudd has had his trusty old shotgun taken away in the latest Looney Tunes cartoons. That’s right; the iconic character will no longer be seen with a firearm according to executive producer Peter Browngardt.

We’re not doing guns,” he said during an interview with the New York Times. Warner Bros., the producer of the series released a clip showing Elmer instead using a scythe during his hunt for Bugs Bunny. TNT and other explosives from Acme? That’s all good too according to Browngardt, just no evil guns. So another iconic character, first appearing in 1937, has fallen victim to the anti-gun movement and liberal political correctness. Yosemite Sam, famous for packing two pistols has also been stripped of his firearms.

Of course, Elmer and Yosemite are not the first. Yukon Cornelius, that rugged outdoors character who showed up every Christmas with Rudolph lost his trusty nickel-plated six-shooter back in 2013. Cornelius was always ready for whatever the environment, or a Bumble, threw at him and carried a back-pack, canteen, knife and of course a revolver. But, the leftists always have to rewrite history to remove whatever they find offensive while indoctrinating children. If you are old enough, you will even remember the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz had a revolver. That seems to have disappeared as well.

Let’s face it; the leftist-controlled media doesn’t like the 2nd Amendment, firearms ownership or American heritage. So, they whitewash over it to make it disappear to suit their narrative. A good example is Toy Story’s Woody who wears a holster yet has no revolver. A cowboy without a six-shooter, it just doesn’t make sense. It wasn’t so very long ago that children were encouraged to learn responsible firearms handling. It still is in many parts of our great country. But we are in a war against the politically correct left. My recommendation is to mentor who you can, share you love of firearms with those who will listen and become involved in your community.
