The terrorism that actually threatens America

[This post has been updated to correct a duplicate link.] The gun insanity continues. Another average morning, another whirlwind of horrific stories about innocent people in and around us dying (or having their lives endangered) senselessly because criminals and crazy people have easy access to killing machines:

Meanwhile,  the chief defender and enabler of the terrorists around us — the gun lobby — goes merrily about its business, buying our politicians and undermining our democracy.

    In Virginia, it looks more like a racism and anger related shooting. Where is the outrage? #AllLivesMatter! It has nothing to do with guns. Whether it was a knife, rock, stick, baseball bat, any of those could have done the same job.

    You can run from a knife or bat. You cannot run from a bullet.

    Not if the guy can run faster than you, unless you ban criminals from having feet! And you cannot really run from a rock.

    We should also ban slingshots, bow and arrow, spears, feel free to add more.

    Why not just prohibit crime? Makes better sense than persecuting law abiding people.

    It turns out this hits several areas of hate crime. Shooter black, victims white….Shooter gay, victims straight…..Shooter male, two victims female….too bad he was too much of a coward to accept being tried for the crime. But at least he saved the state of Virginia from having to support him on death row forever, and he does get to go ahead and meet ultimate judgement right away.

    A hate crime by a racist – yet it’s the gun that did it. The sliminess of the left is wearing thin, and everyone is beginning to see right through it.
