An accident has been described as a rare moment when a liberal tells the truth. We may have one such moment, from Phoebe Maltz Bovy, New Republic, via
It’s Time to Ban Guns. Yes, All of Them.
Ban guns. All guns. Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on police. Not just because of San Bernardino, or whichever mass shooting may pop up next, but also not not because of those. Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill. Ban guns! Not just gun violence. Not just certain guns. Not just already-technically-illegal guns. All of them.
Calm down sweetie. Ok you want to ban those big evil scary guns. Well your boy Barack is real fond of executive orders, especially when it goes to his favorite amendment, the Second. When Dumbo, he of the big ears and small brain, b/k/a President Barack Obama disarms his Secret Service by executive order, then we can have a nice conversation about those scary guns. Till then, shut up bitch!
How about the fact that since Obama took office, an estimated 100 million guns have been purchased by American citizens, or the over 2.2 million guns sold in November alone, bringing the total to nearly 20 million guns sold so far in 2015? Don’t these people’s actions speak louder than any words? Or maybe Phoebe is conveniently ignoring these facts in an effort to push the gun control agenda.
If Dumbo really wanted limit the amount of firearms held by the American public, the best thing he could do would be to resign, and take the Delaware Blue Hen, Biden with him.
