South Park is only funny to these folks when they're going after people they don't like. Trey and Matt torched Donald Trump and his supporters in Season 19's 2nd episode as well....but the conversation here will be about how they satire the SJW snowflakes lol
The South Park Gun Episode that Liberals Didn't Want to See
Liberals must be so disappointed with the much-hyped "gun control episode" of South Park. There was a big build up that the show’s season 19 finale, “PC Principal Final Justice,” would see every South Park citizen arm themselves and lead to an explosive conclusion, but that never happened, much to their chagrin.
In anticipation of the episode, Crissy Milazzo from Complex.com noted, “Interestingly enough, the Southpark creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone aren't really pro-gun control… Maybe ten or so mass shootings have changed their minds?”
Liberals wanted the show to have some scene to prove that “guns are never the answer” – a tragic accidental shooting, perhaps, a mass shooting, or the town turning into The Purge style chaos. But instead, time after time people having guns led to solutions. When the Marsh family pulls their guns on each other some heavy truths come out and they all become closer as a result

That review was so overly complicated it was painful.
(Yes they are narcissistic, but it is because they feel disempowered - they feel they are not receiving the dignity owe to them and so they use “other people’s causes” as a way to empower themselves, as a way to gain the voice and dignity they so desire).
South Park creators come out in support of gay marriage, gun rights
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have proven notoriously hard to pin down about their political beliefs, both in personal interviews and in their no-holds-barred approach to satirizing any person, institution, or topic under the sun on the show itself.
In a new interview with The Guardian, however, the duo took a clear stance on two specific and very divisive issues.
“Gay marriage and guns,” Parker said. “We’re for both of those.”
“We’re from Colorado, and look at the way Colorado’s gone politically in the last few elections, it’s now gay-friendly, weed-friendly, gun-friendly,” Stone added. “There’s an element of Colorado that I think is in us.”
Please stop trying to frame the episode as per your world view.
Alraht, I'm a gonna gew wotch it ratch a neyow. This time I wont watch it in casual passing, but instead I'll flick on a anti-gun confirmation bias scope and see what I see, and I'll report back...

I have seen every episode too, sorry that doesn't make you some sort of expert on them.
You didn't 'expertly' lay out jack, you have posted a website that shares your views and an interview that just says they are pro gun.
There are plenty of pro gun people who don't think we need unregulated give everyone a gun scenario and I doubt any of our staunch gun supporters on ATS would agree that we need to have them to be able to pull on each other to solve every argument. How do you consider that keeping your cool? Go ahead and ask Project or Answer.
You don't want to see that they MIGHT have been making fun of that idea, I am not sure if they were 100% but I do think they might have been making a point there. That this idea that we have to have guns on us at all times to feel safe and be ready to use them for anything.
Why do you think they had Cartman use so much voice inflection when he first asked how are we going to get guns and then the next scene says well now they have them so nonchalantly as if it was much easier then he thought it would be?
I am not being anti gun, me saying it is absurd for fourth graders to have guns and be pulling them out for disagreeing with mom about bed time is not being anti gun....

Every one was all about Southpark a little bit ago with pc principle, which was really funny, until they made fun of guns and they every one stopped talking about it on ats. Wonder why.
Sounds like you are so dead set on it being nothing but a pro gun message you refuse to accept that it might be possible it wasn't.
