Conservative Comedy: A look at COVID, gun control, and inflation

COVID gun control inflation

Welcome to the latest Conservative Comedy. In this edition, we’ll take another comical look at COVID and gun control. We’re also throwing in a new video on how some people are dealing with inflation now that it’s back thanks to government’s out-of-control spending.

But first, let me share a story about what happened to me recently when I bought a pistol.

Having recently secured my permit to carry a concealed weapon, I visited my local Bass Pro Shop to purchase a small 9mm for protection. When I went to the register to pay for the gun and ammunition, the cashier said, “Strip down, facing me.”

After making a mental note to complain to my local member of Congress about the ridiculous hoops we are forced to jump through to purchase a firearm, I proceeded to do as the cashier instructed.

Once the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I discovered she was referring to how I should place my credit card in the card reader.

They really should make their instructions a little clearer, especially when dealing with seniors.

In recent editions of Conservative Comedy, we recognized the one-year Ronaversary, and we took a look at what what life and work in America has turned into as we return to “normal” after more than a year of coronavirus mandates and lockdowns.

Even though America is slowly re-opening, a lot of confusion remains about how to begin living life again in 2021 in the Age of COVID. Comedian Trey Kennedy answers that question in a video where he leads a training session designed to help us understand what he refers to as COVID Logic.



Following the mass shooting at a Boulder, CO grocery store back in March, the far-left went to work leveraging the tragedy to advance their gun-control agenda. And to get as much mileage out of the tragedy as possible, they threw in a dose of “systemic racism” and “white supremacy” to make sure they covered all the bases.

Of course, the media failed apologize for getting the facts wrong — the shooter was a non-white Syrian refugee with ISIS sympathies — and instead decided to run full-steam-ahead with the classic “guns are bad” narrative.

With Democrats and Republicans simpatico on the gun control issue, expect to see more of this moving forward as they make disarming the American population a top priority. Because, as WhatsHerFace points out in this video posted just after the Boulder shootings, they’re coming for your guns.


Government’s tyrannical response to COVID has created numerous casualties, including the destruction of the free market. Not only have lockdowns and mandates destroyed businesses, their spending addiction before, during, and after COVID has fueled the fires of inflation and destroyed the dollar.

Even those with high interest savings accounts are seeing their money disappear thanks to inflation. And with various indicators showing how the U.S. could be headed for a currency crisis, people are turning to alternative ways to salvage their investments.

What are some of those alternatives? Reason TV’s Remy provides the answer to that question. Believe it or not, one of the alternatives has paws.
