  • Run guys, Homer's got a gun

    In this episode, a riot at a soccer game, makes Marge realize that the house isn't safe. So, insted of buying the $500 Security System, Homer buys a gun. Marge is immediately mad at Homer for doing this, and is even more mad when he buys a membership to the NRA. However, when he lies to Marge about getting rid of it, and Bart finds it, Marge and the kids leave. Now, Homer has to make a choice: the gun or his family. Overall, a pretty good episode I thought, one of the best of season 9, also Marge is such a hypocrite at the end of this episode. 9.5/10 A
